How to write some text (like '...') on the Buttons inside TrueDB Grid Column ?

Hi friends,

I am using TrueDB Grid for my application, and i need to display button along with a column which 'll act as some sort of 'Browse...' button, clicking this button will launch a Popup. All such functionality is working fine, but i couln't figure out how to put some text like 'Edit...' or simply '...' on such buttons.

I do not want to use any image to get such an effect.

Pls. let me know if u have any idea to resolve such a scenario ?

I did try  - TrueDBGrid.Columns(0).value = "..." - but it works only for the current row and after every event on the grid, i had to reapply this method which is rather very clumsy...!!!

You can set an entire column to allow the cell to be a button and then populate the cell with text via setting ButtonText property = true.  This is not the same thing as a button within a column via the Button = True, which as far as I know can only have its' appearance alterered by the use of a bitmap file.

PS: There is a btmap provided with the TDBGrid called ellipsis.bmp that is the "..." you describe in the question...
