I am using MSFlexGrid from Visual C++ 5.0.  It is in a child window NOT a dialog.  I have most of it working but I cannot figure out how to get notified of a mouse click.  The OCX overides OnLButtonDown and the others so my overide is ignored (been down that road).  I see in the VB doc that there are a number of events that you can be notified of but I don't see how to do it in C++.  The MSFlexGrid class that was inserted by Visual Studio does not contain any overidables. There is no doc for this and many other controls for C++.  I have been figuring out how to use it by trial and error and reading the VB doc which is of only limited use.  Help!  Does anyone know how to do this?  Is there any doc I don't know about?

What I do usually is to create another project, which uses a dialog box to contain the OCX. I can use ClassWizard to add the event sinks for that dialog box class. Then, I copy the event sinks map and functions to this non-dialog class and just change the class names in the event sink map.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Simple. Handle the OnClickMsFlexGrid event. From classwizard trap
the event and write a handler it.

Sorry, hakeem. You can only do that if the control is in a dialog.
