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
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.
