You need to draw them yourself. Perhaps there are components that provide what you're looking for. I also know there's some kind of Windows API function that can be used to draw a checked or unchecked checkbox on your canvas. This is the function DrawFrameControl() for which you can find help in the helpfiles.

Basically, use:
DrawFrameControl(Canvas.Handle, Rect, DFC_BUTTON, DFCS_BUTTONCHECK);
DrawFrameControl(Canvas.Handle, Rect, DFC_BUTTON, DFCS_BUTTONCHECK or DFCS_CHECKED);
for either an unchecked or checked checkbox on your grid.

The StringGrid itself offers enough functionality to do this custom drawing, btw. No need for a new component.

or an alternative is to use a TListView in report mode, and set the CheckBoxes property to True

If you look for some components, you have Developer express DBGrid which draws checkboxes on cells ( and more ).
