I am using Delphi 7
I have a DBGrid object that shows a database table with just 5 records
The horizontal scroll bar only shows when the columns are bigger than the avaliable space, but vertical scrollbar shows always no mather the number of records

I don't want the vertical scrollbar to show at all on the grid, never.

Please help...

You mean a panel placed over the grid to hide the scrollbar ?

I am placing like 7 grids side by side to make a dinamic agenda ( 7 week days, 7 grids).

I guess I can place the grids to overwrite eachother and a panel on last one but that doesnt seem a professional way to do it. it must be a way to set the verticalscroll not to show.

I read that it can be done using TCustomGrid, but I don't know how to use that TCustomGrid.

Yes I mean to hide every of Your 7 scroll bars with Tpanels. It'll be the fasted way to do it. There is no easy way of gettig rid of verticel scroll bar in DBGrid. At least I don't know it. If You set panel to be flat there will be no difference in look.

You need to make a new component derived from TDBGrid for this. The
following shows an example for a TDBGRID descendent but the strategy
works with about every control that uses standard window scrollbars.

type
  TNoVScrollTDBGrid = Class( TDBGrid )
  private
    Procedure WMNCCalcSize( Var msg: TMessage );
      message WM_NCCALCSIZE;
  end;
 
procedure TNoVScrollDBGrid.WMNCCalcSize(var msg: TMessage);
var
  style: Integer;
begin
  style := getWindowLong( handle, GWL_STYLE );
  If (style and WS_VSCROLL) <> 0 Then
    SetWindowLong( handle, GWL_STYLE, style and not WS_VSCROLL );
  inherited;
end;

If You really want to fight with it You can also use

  ShowScrollBar(DBGrid1.Handle,SB_VERT,FALSE);

Perfect.

yours line works great mokule.

but shane, you've got me interested on that way to derive a component from another. I have read about it and looks the way to custumise about anything, even that I couldnt put it to work, still you've givven me material to try and learn.

I really feel bad about spliting points, but I feel that otherwise would be unfair.

Really hope no one gets hurt.

Why do You feel bad while splitting points?
It's quite normal when You get real help from more than one person.
