Hi expert(s),

My Q's:
1) How to clear the grey line in DBGrid so when it show the data, it just look plain white?
2) Some of my fields are vary in size such as char(50) etc. How could I resize the columns auto/manually?

Sample:
FieldA     | FieldB               |
1     | Banker               |
2     | Student               |

I dont want it to be like above eventhough the FieldB is char(50).. I want it to be like this: (it can be resize)

Sample:
FieldA     | FieldB     |
1     | Banker     |
2     | Student     |

TQ...

Hi iqmedia,

here is a sample:


procedure TForm1.Table1AfterOpen(DataSet: TDataSet);
var
  Max, W: Integer;
begin
  // remove row and col lines in dbgrid
  DBGrid1.Options := DBGrid1.Options - [dgRowLines, dgColLines];

  // calculate with for column number 1
  Max := 0;
  Table1.DisableControls;
  while not Table1.EOF do
  begin
    W := DBGrid1.Canvas.TextWidth(DBGrid1.Columns[1].Field.DisplayText);
    if W > Max then
      Max := W;
    Table1.Next;
  end;
  DBGrid1.Columns[1].Width := Max + 4;
  Table1.First;
  Table1.EnableControls;
end;

Hi ITugay,

I found a solution based on your sample code...

procedure Form1.Table1AfterOpen(DataSet: TDataSet);
var
   Max, W, i : integer;
begin
     Max := 0;
     Table1.DisableControls;
     for i := 0 to 5 do // if you have 6 colums fields
     begin
          while not Table1.EOF do
          begin
               W := DBGrid1.Columns[i].Field.DisplayWidth;
               if W > Max then
                  Max := W + 4  // adding 4 char or not will still look good
               else
                   Max := DBGrid1.Columns[i].Width + 4;
               Table1.Next;
          end;
     end;
     Table1.First;
     Table1.EnableControls;
end;

Thanks... I accept your sample code as an answer.
