TDBGrid gets a face-lift

I always wondered why Borland never changed the look and feel of TDBGrid. A lot of people use it and it looks just "old fashioned" compared to all the other components. However, the community has Jeremy North who did an amazing job to theme the TDBGird control and named it TThemeDBGrid.

And the best thing: He made it available for free in CodeContral, Borland's community data repository. So, be sure to search for 'Jeremy North' in your next CC search in the author-field. It's well worth looking at!

You can see screenshots of the component on Jeremy's blog at Also be sure to look at his other great components at
