Here's what I want to do,
   MSFlexGrid 5.0 has 90% of the features i would like it to
   have.
   I want to implement a new control with the last 10%
   based on the MSFlexGrid control.

Specifics:
   Im using Visual C++ 5.0's ActiveX control creation.
   Im not subclassing the control.

I would like to Create the msflexgrid control in my controls "OnCreate". How is this done codewise?

Thanks in advance

I did a similar thing with a different grid.
In the create of your control, create a CRect sturcture filled with the size that you would like your grid to be (probobly you want it 100%). Use the LPCREATESTRUCT parameters x,y,cx and cy to determine the size of your control. Then, create a pointer to your msflext (say, pFlex) and then call pFlex->CreateControl(..). Note that you may need to include the license key of MSflex for it to work properly. Use the rect you created using the info  in LPCREATE struct for the rect parameter of Create Control. To handle resize, you may want to override the function OnSetObjectRects, determine the new size of your control, and resize your pFlex using MoveWindow.
