Documentation pointer for MS 5.0 FlexGrid

I've been trying to play with the FlexGrid control
that comes with VC+ 5.0.  I'm an experienced C++/MFC
developer but I've done very little with OCX's and
would really like a good pointer to documentation and
source example using this control.  Many thanks.

Mike:  Thanks for taking time to answer, however, that didn't
really help me.  Obviously, you can get to the VB-style help for
the control in the way you indicated; however, that isn't really
enough to build a complex, grid based app.

What I'm looking for is doc (or sample source which would
be even better) that shows how to use this grid control in a
real-world example.  Types of things it should illustrate is
1) how to get the currently selected cell's bounding box on a
double-click (using the grid ctrl's GetCellLeft(), GetCellTop(), etc
calls); 2) overlay that cell with an edit control or pull down
list, to change the cell's contents; 3) how to resize a grid
(for example, converting from the grid's display-twips
coordiante system to screen coords); and so on.

All of this stuff is fairly straightforward to do and can prolly be
done in a couple of days of work -- I'm just hoping to find
someone else's work to piggy-back off of.

Please accept my appologies if my question was not explicit
enough.  Many thanks.
