A Tedit even in Readonly mode, on can still copy the cell content with the Ctl-C or the right click pop menu
however in the tstringgrid, if in read only mode this option disappear : the cursor is there no access to the content.
Logically preventing a user to change data and the ability to copy it to the clipboard are non related - I do not understand this choice.

Is there a work around that please or a combination of options (grid or column) that would allow to have this native behavior enabled ?

now given it is also for mac OS trapping for key-pressed etc is a pain (figure out which correspond to copy on the mac) and the have to create a popup menu etc - or using the grid instead of string grid this component might be smarter ?
Thank you
