I have developed a Delphi 5 application on Windows 2000. When clicking on the DBGrid column header, the text disappears on another PC also with Windows 2000 on it. Why would this happen on another PC with the same OS? Thanx in advance!

Is text comes back when you release mouse? Have you do manuplation with column headers in your program?

DBGrid has properties:
  .....................................................
  -Font
       Charset        DEFAULT_CHARSET
       Color           clWindowText
       Height          -11
       Name           MS Sans Serif
       Pitch            fpDefault
       Size             8
  .....................................................
  -TitleFont
       Charset        DEFAULT_CHARSET
       Color           clWindowText
       Height          -11
       Name           MS Sans Serif
       Pitch            fpDefault
       Size             8
  .....................................................
Check if they are different, may be on the other PC the TitleFont is missing ????

esoftbg: Windows makes standart substitution of missed fonts. If you don't load directly missed font resource no  problem encountered.

How would I make sure that the font I use will be on the other PC? In Delphi I mean?

Yuo can get list of all available fonts from the Screen.Fonts, so
you can check if font Screen.Fonts.IndexOf('MyFont') is >= 0
(it returns -1 if font with that name is not installed).
