 begin
    { Set default font color }
    DBGrid1.Canvas.Font.Color := clBlack;
    { Is current cell the focused cell? }
    if (gdFocused in State) then begin
      DBGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clBlack;
      DBGrid1.Canvas.Font.Color := clWhite;
    end
    { Not focused, is it the target field Terms? }
    else if (Field.FieldName = MYFIELDNAMEHERE) then
      { Check field content for one of two possible values }
      if (Field.AsString = 'o') then
        { If field contains "o" paint  green}
        DBGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clGreen
      else
        { If field contains "n" paint red }
        DBGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clPaleRed
    else
      { Paint non-focused and non-target cells white }
      DBGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clWhite;
       DBGrid1.DefaultDrawDataCell(Rect, Field, State);

Your code change the color just for cell. This can be done more easier in DrawColumn.

sorry, i extrapolated from the link i provided, and didn't change everything that was appropriate to your question

it could have easily been changed to test the fieldbyname versus each individual field

if (DBGrid1.FieldByName = MYFIELDNAMEHERE) = '0' then
        DBGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clGreen
      else
if (DBGrid1.FieldByName = MYFIELDNAMEHERE) = '1' then
          DBGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clPaleRed


Oh well, you win some, you loose some

Still color just a cell.

I have a new problem. In my project I have a DBGrid with specified columns. When I test these comments I used a demo project where I show all fields. In this case all work perfect.

But when I ported the demo code to my app don't work. Look alike DrawCell isn't called when I declare some columns. Some help here? New 250 points available.
