I have a TStringgrid measuring 20 cols and 20 rows, each filled with a character ranging from A to Z, loaded from a 400 byte textfile. Now I want the Stringgrids hint to reflect the position of the mouse as if the Stringgrid cells were numbered from left to right top to bottom in the range of 1 to 400.
To make things more clear > the first row should read cells 1 to 20, the second row should read cells 21 to 40 and so on. So when I move my mouse from left to right over the first row the hints 1 to 20 should be displayed shortly after another. Instead of the hint displaying its 'position' a label or edit may also reflect the location.
i just need to know the exact location by means of the 400 positions on which I base the textfile.
If you need more info let me know,
Ps if you think another approach would be more appropriate then I'm all ears as well. Providing working sample will help you another step on that huge huge list of experts out here on EE :)
