Currently in OnDrawDataCell function of a TwwDBGrid, I change the color of the text in a particular field if certain criteria is meet.  For instance:

 if s = 'SomeCondition' then
        begin
          (Sender as TwwDBGrid).Canvas.Font.color := clBlue;
          (Sender as TwwDBGrid).Canvas.TextRect(rect,rect.left,rect.Top + 2, qry.FieldByName('Subject').asString);
        end;

I am changing the field in some rows to have blue text.  Not all rows have this text color.  However, when a row with the blue text is selected (highlighted) the text is hard to see.  This is becuase the row is "highligted" in a shade of blue too.  I would like the text to be aqua if the row is highlighted and blue if it is not.  Does anyone know how to do this?

I don't use the WollToWoll components, but based on the standard DBGrid component it might be something like
   if s = 'SomeCondition' then
   begin
      if (Sender as TwwDBGrid).selectedField = field then
         (Sender as TwwDBGrid).Canvas.Font.color := clAqua
      else
         (Sender as TwwDBGrid).Canvas.Font.color := clBlue;
 
      (Sender as TwwDBGrid).Canvas.TextRect(rect,rect.left,rect.Top + 2, qry.FieldByName('Subject')
   end;

TwwCustomDBGrid.OnCalcCellColors

TCalcCellColorsEvent = procedure(Sender: TObject; Field: TField; State: TGridDrawState; Highlight: Boolean; AFont: TFont; ABrush: TBrush) of object;

you have a Highlight: Boolean input param
use OnCalcCellColors instead of OnDrawDataCell

This all works great. Only in my case the values are currency. The currency formatting  gets striped in the process.

What's up with that?
procedure TCostsf.wwDBGrid1DrawDataCell(Sender: TObject;
  const Rect: TRect; Field: TField; State: TGridDrawState);
begin
 
  with (Sender as TwwDBGrid), ClientDataSetCosts do begin
    if (Field.Value < 0) then
      Canvas.Brush.Color := 8421631
    else
      Canvas.Brush.Color := 8454016;
 
    Canvas.TextRect( rect, rect.left, rect.Top + 2, FieldByName( Field.FieldName).AsString);
 
  end;
end;
