Urgent - Help with a AdvStringGrid Component (TMS Software)

Hi Experts,

I have a problem with the AdvStringGrid component.

I know how to do this with a AdvStringGrid but it is different with the AdvStringGrid component.

I need to change the Title of one of the Headers and also replace the Field contents on that column.

The header is called: ''PhotoURL'' and I need the change that title to ''ImagePath''

Then I need to change all the fields in that column from ''Http://www.someweb.com/123.img'' to ''../images''

All the fields are changed to the same text ''../images''

Hope you can help as it's quite urgent!

Well I cant think of any other way that just using a loop to replace every cell value with the same text.

for i := 0 to grid.rowcount - 1 do
  grid.cells[ yourColNumber, i] := '.\imagespath\'
You can manually change the title headers for the column in the object inspector.
Have you pre-setup the columns before loading the data into the grid or are you just letting the load of the dataset handle the column headers?

If you have pre-setup the columns, double click on the grid to bring up the fields editor.
Select the field and then in the object inspector you will find some properties called Header, HeaderAlignment and HeaderFont.
If you havent pre-setup then you will have to manually set them by code Grid.columns[x].header := 'xxx'

As for the second part of your question there are probably 2 ways of doing this, both would be via the actual query linked to the grid and not the grid itself.
Either create a calculated field based on your current one to produce a new string, or select the field in the query object and create an OnGetText handler to format the data to be displayed differently.

Is there anyway to do this without a query?  As the contents are actually the results of a query already.

Hi Mike,

I've got another AdvStringGrid  question here in case you can help on this one too. :o)


hmm my mistake I thought we were talking about a DBAdvGrid before which is why I was talking about a query, dont know where my head was at!

All the headers for the columns should be stored in the advStringGrid.columnHeaders property which is basically a stringList. So to access the individual column header you should only have to do something like
advStringGrid.columnHeaders[x] := 'some new title'
As for the second part do you want to change each file name from

Well, I'm basically replace the field contents with a path for example:





The above field (path) will be the same for every field.
