BCB DataGrid Highlight not wanted

I have an applcation written in BCB5 which uses a DBGrid control.
The problem I have is that there is always one cell of the DBGrid control highlighted in dark blue, which changes when a mouse click is madr on another cell.
The only way I can get this highlight to dissapear is to Disable the DataGrid control but this has the unwanted side effect of greying out the text in the DBGrid display.
Is there a way of displaying the text in the DBGrid normally (not greyed out) when the DBGrid control is disabled ?
Alternatively,can the Highlighting of the selected cell be turned off ?
I am using an OnDrawColumnCell event handler and I have set the read-only property of the DBGrid to true and the Options properties "RowSelect" , and "dgEditing" both to false.

I have asked this question before and I solved it myself but have forgotten how.

You just have to override the color settings in OnDrawColumnCell.  Here's a quick example,

void __fastcall TMainForm::DBGrid1DrawColumnCell(TObject *Sender,
      const TRect &Rect, int DataCol, TColumn *Column,
      TGridDrawState State)
{
  TDBGrid *Grid = (TDBGrid *)Sender;

  if(State.Contains(gdSelected) == true)
  {
      Grid->Canvas->Font->Color = clBlack;
      Grid->Canvas->Brush->Color = clWhite;
   }
   else
   {
      Grid->Canvas->Font->Color = clBlack;
      Grid->Canvas->Brush->Color = clWhite;
    }
  Grid->DefaultDrawColumnCell(Rect,DataCol,Column,State);
}

The brush color is the background.  

You can turn off the automatic cell coloring but only when the grid does not have focus through the dgAlwaysShowSelected in the grid options.

Thanks for that!
Your test for gdSelected would appear redundant as the code in the else statements is the same in both sections ?

  if(State.Contains(gdSelected) == true)
  {
      Grid->Canvas->Font->Color = clBlack;
      Grid->Canvas->Brush->Color = clWhite;
   }
   else
   {
      Grid->Canvas->Font->Color = clBlack;
      Grid->Canvas->Brush->Color = clWhite;
    }
