    I am a bit confused here.
    I need the TQuerry to write my SQL statement.
    I don't know if I can write my sql statement in a TTable.

    Is that right?

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Rowin,
    well I tried using TQuery->Last() method and then TQuery->RecordCount and it works. So first position your dataset to the last record and then call the recordcount property. AlSo note that using SELECT COUNT(*) in TQuery SQL property is more efficient then using RecordCount especially for large datasets.

    A little late on that one, but since I struggled with a similar issue and found out how to get the number of selected rows (records), I thought I'd share.

    TDBGrid is linked to a TDataSet. TDataSet has protected members that would be very useful if you counld access them, such as RecNo (number of records in the data set) and ActiveCount (number of selected records/rows from the dbgrid).

    The trick is to expose them by using a derived class. In the following code, MyDBGrid is the TDBGrid object that is linked to a TDataSource component.

    int __fastcall TMyDBClass::GetNumberOfSelectedRecords(TObject *Sender)
        int numberOfSelectedRecords = 0;
        // Get the DataSet
        TDataSet *pDS = MyDBGrid->DataSource->DataSet;
        // Derived the base class TDataSet and expose the protected members
        class TExposedDataSet : public TDataSet { public: __property ActiveRecord; };
        // Return the number of selected records
        numberOfSelectedRecords = static_cast<TExposedDataSet*>(pDS)->ActiveRecord;
        return numberOfSelectedRecords;
    You can do the same with any non-public member of the class you want to access.

    Hope this helps.

    I am really not a fan of the Data Grid, I find it much easier to just populate a String Grid control with my data manually.

    You will find you can do a lot more with it.
