Hi,

  Id like to know if its possible to always see the first column on a DBGrid even when we move the scrollbar horizontally to see the other column? I got 20 column and i want to see the equipment number (first column) even when i check the last column.

Thanks for your help

phew,
i know only an ugly hack,
best would be to look for a third-party component,
where you can adjust the fixed-columns

search at www.torry.net

one "ugly hack" from me :)))

use 2 DBGrids assigned to the same DataSet. Set their position as you want. In the first grid show the first column (the one you want to see). For the second one - remove the Indicator from options and show all other columns.

you can put Splitter between both DBGrids if you want to be able to resize the "first column"

i would not say that this is an ugly hack,
its more an ugly workaround :-)))

and phew, don't let the user change the systemfont to large or small
(just in case that a systemfont is used in the grid)

Thanks both for the fast answers.

   The way Ivanov do it is good for what i have ask. It would work perfectly. But i thinks i check on Torry like meikl said and find a third-party component with more flexibility that the original DBGrid.
Thats why i split the point.

Thanks again.
