Using the default DrawingStyle-property = gdsThemed hides the content of the cells, when you are runnig on Win XP with the default blue Windows-Theme.

This only occurs by selecting [goRowSelect] = True or [goRangeSelect] = True when multiple cells are selected.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new VCL-Forms-Application
2. Place a TStringGrid on the form
3. Fill the Grid with some Values
4. Enable RowSelect OR RangeSelect
5. Run the application on Win XP with default blue XP-Theming (green doesn't work too, silver has only less important painting problems but is also not perfect)
6. Select a Row or some Cells
7. The content of the selected cells vanish "under" the selected area. The frame of the selected area is randomly dotted or solid but should be always dotted or always solid (I think).
Use gdsGradient or gdsClassic

Could you please attach sample project(including some screenshots) to reproduce/confirm your issue?

The pictures are made with blue theming but the others are quite similar. The differences of the frame appearance depends on the clicking order of different rows.

We hope this issue will be fixed in future update release.
