I need a method ("Clear") that clears all cells of a string grid and then deletes them.

So stringgrid.Clear finally DELETES ALL CELLS (ROWS/COLS..whatever you like) of the stringgrid.

Thx.

Do you meant the content only?

procedure ClearStringGrid(Grid: TStringGrid);
var
  I: Integer;
  J: Integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to Grid.ColCount-1 do
    for J := 0 to Grid.RowCount-1 do
      Grid.Cells[I,J] := '';
end;

The content AND the CELLS. I need one tstringgrid WITH NO CELLS. If that isn't possible then I just can hide the entire table.

>but what was that about "colcont=0;rowcount=0" ?
that deletes the whole content from the grid,
that one cell left is a default painting bahaviour, if the grid is empty
-> maybe this could be adjusted by using ownerdraw

if the grid is empty, just make it invisible. Then you'll have no cell at all.
