1. I would like to show a list of images in a drawgrid
2. I want to be able to select an image from the grid
3. I would also like to be able to select 2 images from the grid

I am starting with a list of filenames held in s string list, all the files are small JPEG files. Could someone please give me some standard code to show these images in a DrawGrid as there seems to be no useful doumentation. After I have the images showing I would like to be able to click on a cell in the drawgrid and show the picture in a TImage component or click on two cells and show the images in two TImage components.

Thanks in advance - Dan
