Hi I've got a text output from one of my Oracle procedures that looks like this:

RECno.      Pageid      Pagerpid      Subjid      Blid      lborres_repl      low      high      unit      factor      Calc res.
________________________________________________________________________________

Message:

For a better readability i want to put it in a TStringGrid, but now the message gets cut after the width of the 1st column.

What would be the best aproach?

Thx in advance
Robert

use a TDrawGrid.
When you draw a row with your message, invalidate all the cells in that row, paint your text, and be sure not to FillRect the remaining columns for that row on their paint message or you will wipe out the text. Kinda messy though.

From Peter Below's snippets:

Draw merged cells on a stringgrid

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; ACol, ARow: Integer;
  Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);
var
  i, x, y: Integer;
begin
  If gdFixed In State Then Exit;
  If ARow > 1 Then Exit;

  // draw row 1 with text from cell 1,1 spanning all cells in the row
  with sender as tstringgrid do begin
    {extend rect to include grid line on right, if not last cell
     in row}
    If aCol < Pred(ColCount) Then
      Rect.Right := Rect.Right + GridlineWidth;

    {figure out where the text of the first cell would start relative
     to the current cells rect. }
    y:= Rect.Top + 2;
    x:= Rect.Left + 2;
    for i:= 1 to aCol-1 do
      x:= x - ColWidths[i] - GridlineWidth;

    { Paint cell pale yellow}
    Canvas.Brush.Color := $7FFFFF;
    Canvas.Brush.Style := bsSolid;
    Canvas.FillRect( Rect );

    { Paint text of cell 1,1 clipped to current cell. }
    Canvas.TextRect( Rect, x, y, Cells[1,1] );
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
  i, k: Integer;
begin
  with stringgrid1 do begin
    cells[1, 1] := 'A rather long line which will span cells';
    for i:= 1 to colcount-1 do
      for k:= 2 to rowcount -1 do
        cells[i,k] := Format( 'Cell[%d,%d]',[i,k]);
  end;
end;

Thanks a lot.

I only had to change 4 lines and it worked.
