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.

1) Start the IDE
2) Load Your project
3) Use the "Components and Controls" command in the "Add To Project" tear-off of the "Project" menu in the IDE.
4) In the resulting "Components and Controls Gallery" dialog, double-click on the "Registered ActiveX Controls" choice.
5) Click on the "Microsoft FlexGrid Control, Version 5.0" choice
6) Cick the "More Info" button.

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.
