TLMDDBGrid color a column

I have a TLMDDBGrid, and one of the columns contains a date.  I currently have this code

   if (AColumn->FieldName == "LastTimeHere")
      AnsiString Data = AFormattedData.VOleStr;
      int Slash = Data.Pos("/");

      if (Slash)
          // Code to determine if the date is in a certain range, if it is I want the background YELLOW

         // Want to make the cell background Yellow, this is where I need help!

         // With a normal TDBGrid           
         //Canvas->Brush->Color = clYellow;
         //DBGrid->DefaultDrawColumnCell(Rect, DataCol, Column, State);
         // I need to know how to do the DefaultDrawColumnCell with the LMD DBGrid

    Regular TLMDGrid has OnGetCellColor event, which can be used in your scenario. However, I've forgot to publish the event in data-aware grid version. You can wait for the next minor release, or modify sources yourself; just add OnGetCellColor to TLMDDBGrid class as shown below:

      TLMDGrid = class(TLMDCustomGrid)
        property OnGetCellColor;

    Then, if you can recompile packages - do it, and the event will be accessible at design-time; otherwise, temporarily, assign an event handler at run-time (e.g. inside OnFormCreate event handler).
