The ActiveX control MSFlexGrid has a function called
GetColIsVisible().  I could not find a SetColIsVisible().  How
can I show or hide a specific column on the grid?

Even I couldn't find a similar method. So, what I did is to make the desired column width as 0, so that the next column will overlap the "to be" hidden column. Here is a code snippet.

/** If the selected paint scheme is Monotone, don't display the secondary paint code
 * and description  */
CString comboSel;
m_PaintProcCombo.GetWindowText (comboSel);
if (comboSel.CompareNoCase (MONOTONE_PAINT) == 0)
{
    // Hide secondary code and desc columns
   glSecondaryCodeWidth = m_PaintTrimGrid.GetColWidth (5);
   glSecondaryDescWidth = m_PaintTrimGrid.GetColWidth (6);

   // concentrate here
   m_PaintTrimGrid.SetColWidth (5, 0);
   m_PaintTrimGrid.SetColWidth(6, 0);
   m_PaintTrimGrid.Refresh();
}
else
{
   // need to note this too ....
   if (glSecondaryCodeWidth != 0)
      m_PaintTrimGrid.SetColWidth (5, glSecondaryCodeWidth);
   if (glSecondaryDescWidth != 0)
              m_PaintTrimGrid.SetColWidth (6, glSecondaryDescWidth);
   m_PaintTrimGrid.Refresh();
}

Discard the logic and look for whatever you are looking for. Here glSecondaryCodeWidth is a global variable with the module as it's scope. Eventhough you can't digest this sloppy code, it works and it works WELL.

Hope this helps ....
