Dear turbomen,

program Project1;

uses
  Forms,
  Unit1 in 'Unit1.pas' {Form1};

{$R *.res}

begin
  Application.Initialize;
//  Application.MainFormOnTaskbar := True; { under Delphi 7 this is a wrong code line }
  Application.CreateForm(TForm1, Form1);
  Application.Run;
end.
unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls, Grids, ExtCtrls, jpeg;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    DrawGrid1: TDrawGrid;
    Button1: TButton;
    Button2: TButton;
    Button3: TButton;
    Image1: TImage;
    Image2: TImage;
    procedure Button3Click(Sender: TObject);

implementation

{$R *.dfm}


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Temp: TRect;
begin
  // to colour a cell in the grid:
  Temp:= DrawGrid1.CellRect(0,4);   //identify the cell

end;

procedure TForm1.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
var

                 DrawGrid1.Canvas.FillRect(Temp);         //colour cell
               end;

          'b': begin

                 DrawGrid1.Canvas.FillRect(Temp);          //colour cell
               end;

                 DrawGrid1.Canvas.Draw(Temp.Left, Temp.Top, Image2.Picture.Graphic);     //load image
               end;

        end;
    end;

  end;
  ActiveControl:=DrawGrid1;
end;

(*
{ The next method is not declared in the TForm1, and not assigned with Event OnClick, so it is wrong }
procedure TForm1.Image2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin

end;
*)

end.

In addition it can be mentioned, that some properties are different for DrawGrid1 on Form1 in Project1 and prjDemo ....
