Thank  you for your answer but I want to see the title during the design time so I can easily change the column width.

Is there any propertities of stringgrid to set the title, font, etc. just like the dbgrid.

I suggest that you use another stringgrid that allows this bevaviour. Such as
kStringGrid from http://www.korzh.com/download.
It is very easy to work with (a lot easyer than the standard stringGrid and allows coloring rows odd and even differently for a better look)
It behaves just like DBGrid with column titles

Actualyy the download link is:
and you need the additional pack

Both installed and used do not increase your application size significantly.... only a few kilos.
