Sorry Wiona for my vague answer, didn't have the source code at hand, but hope now it's better.
In the Object Inspector, double click the OnDrawCell event of the stringgrid. Delphi creates the skeleton of a procedure, complete it like this:
procedure TForm1.StringGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; ACol, ARow: Integer; Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState); begin if (ACol <> 0) and (ARow <> 0) and (Arow mod 2 = 0) then begin StringGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clYellow; // or other wanted color StringGrid1.Canvas.FillRect(Rect); StringGrid1.Canvas.TextOut(Rect.Left + 2, Rect.Top + 2, StringGrid1.Cells[ACol, ARow]); end; end;
