The Microsoft FlexGrid (MSFlexGrid) control displays and operates on tabular data. It allows complete flexibility to sort, merge, and format tables containing strings and pictures. When bound to a Data control, MSFlexGrid displays read-only data.

You can put text, a picture, or both, in any cell of an MSFlexGrid. The Row and Col properties specify the current cell in an MSFlexGrid. You can specify the current cell in code, or the user can change it at run time using the mouse or the arrow keys. The Text property references the contents of the current cell.

If the text in a cell is too long to display in the cell, and the WordWrap property is set to True, the text wraps to the next line within the same cell. To display the wrapped text, you may need to increase the cells column width (ColWidth property) or row height (RowHeight property).

Use the Cols and Rows properties to determine the number of columns and rows in an MSFlexGrid.

Note : Before you can use an MSFlexGrid in your application, you must add the MSFlxGrd.ocx file to your project. To automatically include the file in your project, put it in the Autoload file. When distributing your application, you should install the MSFlxGrd.ocx file in the users Microsoft Windows System directory. For more information about adding an ActiveX control to a project, see "Standard ActiveX Controls" in the Visual Basic Programmers Guide.
