Sort more String Grid columns
« on: March 05, 2021, 05:42:29 pm »
I'v not found any solution on sorting more than one column in a stringrid so I made an, may be "quick an dirty simple solution.
Then main principle is to concatenate values into one field an sort this field, all done in event CompareCells.
In testing this seems to work very well.
Any comments are welcome!
