Hi.
I want to add a code in my database application, that can search for a string like a telephone number and then the number in the dbgrid receive focus.
More specific :

I would like something like a quick search where i put a letter or 2 in an editbox and then the dbgrid scroll down to that number. For example if i write in the editbox "6" then the dbgrid shoul run down to the numbers starting with 6 etc.

A simple tip about the right command i think it would be enough.

Do you mean this?

Delphi syntax:

function Locate(const KeyFields: string; const KeyValues: Variant; Options: TLocateOptions
): Boolean; virtual;
