I did a clean install of 0.9.30 because of problems I was having after installing snapshots.

In fact grid.selection behaves somewhat independent of cell cursor and this is used in at least one of my apps, so in this case the reported bugs are really features, in r31008 I added an option: goSelectionActive meaning that by using grid.Selection will also activate/move cell cursor which should be more in concordance with ..., well you didn't specify how should it behave but I took the bug's descriptions as some kind of specification. Please test.

Thank you Jesus! I understand the behavior now. I was clearly confusing the relationship between the cursor and the selection, and was banging my head on the wall.

One small discrepancy is that:

DrawGrid1.Selection := TGridRect(Rect(1, 1, 1, 1));
DrawGrid1.Selection := TGridRect(Rect(-1, -1, -1, -1));

does not deselect, while

DrawGrid1.Selection := TGridRect(Rect(1, 1, 2, 1));
DrawGrid1.Selection := TGridRect(Rect(-1, -1, -1, -1));


Unfortunately, I am having no luck with svn, so am still using 0.9.30 and can't yet try out the cool new option (thanks!). I deleted lazarus settings, ran 'svn co' in clean lazarus directory, got r31010 ok, did 'make clean all', and rebuilt. I kept getting errors:

'A timeout occurred..."
'Error Project raised exception 'RunError(201)''
'project1 quit unexpectedly...'
'Debugger error...'

so had to go back to 0.9.30. I got a bit frustrated, so will try again later. Many thanks for your work on this.

By the way, the reason that I was working with TDrawGrid was because the current application I'm working on requires non-contiguous row selections. I ended up storing the state in my data structure, and painting rows using OnPrepareCanvas and OnDrawCell. Am a correct that TDrawGrid does not support non-contiguous cell selection?

Setting Row = -1, Col = -1 seems to have no effect. Is it possible to set the focus off?
