{
 This copies the contents of a TstringGrid/TDrawGrid (only Text!!) into a string.
 Tabs are inserted between the columns, CR+LF between rows.
}

use
  Grids;

{...}

{ we need this Cracker Class because the Col/RowCount property
  is not public in TCustomGrid }
type
  
TGridHack = class(TCustomGrid);

function GetstringGridText(_Grid: TCustomGrid): string;
var
  
Grid: TGridHack;
  Row, Col: Integer;
  s: string;
begin
  
// Cast the paramter to a TGridHack, so we can access protected properties
  
Grid   := TGridHack(_Grid);
  Result := '';
  // for all rows, then for all columns
  
for Row := 0 to Grid.RowCount - 1 do
  begin
    for 
Col := 0 to Grid.ColCount - 1 do
    begin
      
// the first column does not need the tab
      
if Col > 0 then
        
Result := Result + #9;
      Result := Result + Grid.GetEditText(Col, Row);
    end;
    Result := Result + #13#10;
  end;
end;
