In the last weeks, we've been working on a component to allow you to import and export FNC Grids to the xlsx file format. We've also used the opportunity to rename the existing "Grid Filters" and "FMX Grid Filters" to "VCL Grid Excel Bridge" and "FNC Grid Excel Bridge" because the word "Filter" has a different meaning in a grid. We hope the new "Bridge" naming proves less ambiguous.
In our 3rd VCL Grid goodies we have a look at another often overlooked but yet convenient feature of TAdvStringGrid (and also TDBAdvGrid) from the TMS VCL UI Pack: HoverButtons!
With the HoverButtons, you can quickly setup actions to be performed on rows in the grid where the mouse is hovering. It is enabled by just setting grid.HoverButtons.Enabled = true. This means, that when the mouse hovers over a row, a small panel hosting buttons will appear at a column of choice in the grid. This column is set with grid.HoverButtons.Column. WIth the property grid.HoverButtons.Position, you can specify in what relative position with respect to this column the panel should appear.
