Thread checkboxes in grids

Checkboxes in grids... well they require a double click to change.  The first click sets the field to the checkbox, and the second click activates the change in the checkbox.  It makes total sense from a programming point of view, but many users are complaining about the need to double click to make these checkboxes change.

I've included a sample project to demonstrate.  The standalone checkbox makes sense to people, but the grid one does not.

Hi,
I solved it with the grid OnClick event, checking if Grid.ColumnIndex is one of the checkboxes, and then toggling the field value between true and false.
Is a pretty old code, perhaps there are now properties or events to do it more easily.

Works very well.

Regards,
Diego

Oh I could solve it easily, but would have to copy the code to scads of grids, I'd rather it be solved in the libraries and inherit the wisdom.
