Can someone tell me how to Autosize the Row height in a Flex Grid.  I have a Memo field that will contain a large amount of text and need to be able to read it all.  Either Autosize the row or provide some type of scrolling ability so as to be able to view ALL the data in the field

Here's the easy answer.

Add a label on the same form as the flexgrid.  Set the labels properties:
Name = lblCellText
Caption = "" (Nothing)
Autosize = True
Visible = False

Now when you add data to the grid, use this code (replace nRow and nCol with the row and column you need):
  MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(nRow, nCol) = "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country."
  lblCellText.Width = MSFlexGrid1.ColWidth(nCol)
  lblCellText.Caption = MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(nRow, nCol)
  MSFlexGrid1.RowHeight(nRow) = lblCellText.Height + 240

Create the following subroutine in the form which has the flexgrid:

Private Sub FixFlex()
  Dim nRow As Integer

  lblCellText.Width = MSFlexGrid1.ColWidth(6)

  For nRow = 1 to MSFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
    lblCellText.Caption = MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(nRow, 6)
    MSFlexGrid1.RowHeight(nRow) = lblCellText.Height + 240
  Next nRow
End Sub

Now call FixFlex right after adding data to the FlexGrid or after refreshing your data control.
