About a year ago (November 2010) I posted a blog about how to use other graphic formats in the headers of a cCJGrid. A couple of days ago there was a request about how to use other graphic formats in the grid itself. While all the information is in the one-year-old blog I feel you all want to see an example on how to do this. So that is what this blog is about.
In the previous blog I started with describing a column named oYellowCards. The blog was written shortly after the 2010 World

Imagine you are an end-user and you have the order entry view open. The screen is empty, what to do now?
Of course you need to select an existing order or create a new order before you can go the data entry grid and enter order detail lines, but what if you do not know this? Wouldn't it be nice when the screen gives you some hints and tips? For example a text like: "You can enter this order detail grid after you selected an existing order or created a new order in the top half of the screen."?

(Added a test to see if the grid is in edit mode or not)
Visual DataFlex supports bitmaps and icons in the standard controls. If you have other graphic format files (like TIFF, GIF, JPEG, PNG etc) you need to use either an ActiveX object, a DLL that does it for you or use the Graphics Library free available for download. For the CodeJock Report Control based Grids in Visual DataFlex 16.0 and higher it is a different case. This blog tells you how to use the popular graphics formats in the grid.
