StartEditor on Popup Form

Post by ghanshaw » Thu Mar 15, 2018 10:59 am

I have a detail screen that pops up when I am editing the main form. I am trying to get it to start the editor on the first cell in the grid of the new popup form. If I try to start the editor I get an error "Cannot focus on a disabled or invisible window". I checked and the grid is enabled but not focused so I tried the SetFocus command but get the same error when I am trying to SetFocus. How can I get the screen to come up with the Editor started. AutoEdit doesn't seem to do the trick either.

I'm getting this same error when I try to set the first cell in edit mode at FormCreate. But it works fine if I do the same at FormShow.

Code: Select all

type TVCLTeeGridAccess=class(TVCLTeeGrid);

procedure TStringGridForm.FormShow(Sender: TObject);
  TVCLTeeGridAccess(TeeGrid1.Grid).StartEditor(TeeGrid1.Columns[0], 0);
