TStringgrid à la HTML-Table
« on: May 18, 2017, 08:20:17 pm »
Hello,
As an old TurboPascal programmer and even Delphi (2...5)-programmer I made several little tools for me.
And then, I stopped because Delphi suddenly changed their components and Paradox was dammed. I went to Perl and PHP ...
I made a kind of book-index (http://www.fotospotter.be/shoot) and now I would make it in Lazarus. (Discovered some weeks ago).
Question 1:
Can I design the data to the grid such I did in HTML (see URL).  I merge some cells in one cell (Column 1) row
Question 2:
Can I  show a jpg-image in this 'merged' cell.
Question 3:
Text is shown in cells but the text is wrapped on several lines.

Some help would be wonderful, but before I risk my life, I want to be sure it can be done.
Thanks

With KControls you can make such tables both in KGrid or in KMemo table, whichever suits you better.
None of those support import or export from/to HTML though.
You will find KControls on my web site.

I looked to your components and tried it.  But nowhere I see a way to show an image jpg-type in een merged cell.
And how to obtain a wrapped text in a cell ?
I did not request to have an export from/to HTML. I gave the URL to see how I did it in HTML.  Now I would like having a programm that can run on a PC, win10, or IOS or Linux without the need of internetserver, ..

Both features are present and possible.
Just merge a cell and draw jpg image inside.
Wrapped text is also possible.
Both principles are shown in the demos, you just need to play with it a little bit more to get desired results.

OK, but will it be usable for linux and Ios (Apple) too ? And which download do you advice ? there is V 1.7 and one on bitbucket.

Do you mean macOS? That should be possible with with KControls, but no Lazarus control can be used with iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch).

So, I looked to kgrid and finally I solved question 1 and 3
But, when looking to all examples I can't find how to show a jpg in a cell. Anyone an idea ?
What have I to write in the ondrawcell-event ?
Thanks
