TDBGrid.SavetoFile - How does one set Options?
« on: November 06, 2009, 06:43:03 pm »
Hi,

I would like to save order of the columns in a dbgrid.  I thought I would be able to do this with dbgrid.savetofile('griddata.xml').

However, the saved file contains only:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<CONFIG>
  <grid version="3">
    <saveoptions create="False" position="False"/>
  </grid>
</CONFIG>


TStringGrid has  .SaveOptions,  But if TdbGrid does, I can't find it.

Could someone tell me what I doning wrong?

The reason I want to do this, so that if columns are moved or resized, they can be saved and restored the next time the program is run.

Thanks in advance.  Wes

Apparently this seems to be a bug in TDBGrid.

Differently from TStringGrid and generic class TCustomGrid it seems that the property SaveOptions is an empty set.

However I'm quite new to Lazarus and I might be wrong.

Maybe someone else can give an additional advice.

Alberto,

Thank you for reporting the bug.  I wasn't familiar with the reporting procedures. 

Also, I wanted to make sure I hadn't overlooked something simple.  It's happened before.  :)

Thanks again,
Wes
