The AdvStringGrid is by far the most powerful and flexible grid component that I have ever worked with. We will transform all other grid components in our products to AdvStringGrid component. It's great to have these components !!! Also thanks for the great support.

Your grid does everything but make coffee. It is truly impressive as a stringgrid.

— Germain, via TMS newsgroups
We use TAdvStringGrid in all our C++Builder applications, which are used in over 55 countries worldwide, and we find it invaluable. TAdvStringGrid is flexible and full of great features, yet remains easy to use and represents exceptional value for money. We have found that TAdvStringGrid is continually developing and having useful new features added, and when we require support, the TMS Software Team are always quick to answer our questions with advice and code examples. We really do find TAdvStringGrid an excellent product and would recommend it to anyone.

The additional facilities the new version of the grid has given me has been a godsend, well worth the asking price and keep up the good work. Also, it's great to see and author responding to users questions so quickly. There's a few companies I've bought components from who should take a lesson from you in customer service.
