Ohhhhh! I was using send in lieu of dispatch! Dispatch does the trick. 
Thanks so much for the input (still learning here!)... This list rocks!

Cheers from Florida,

The command should work as described in the documentation.

Add this code in a delete button:

    dispatch "DeleteLines" to grp "myDatagrid" with the dgHilitedLines
of grp "myDatagrid"
catch tTheError
    answer tTheError
end try

Where myDatagrid is the name of your datagrid group.

Select some lines in the datagrid and click on the delete button.

What is the result?
