I am trying to change all instances of my edit boxes to grid controls. I am having a lot of trouble getting started. If someone who has used this control before(msflexgrid or msdbgrid) could give me a little info on how to get started I would really appreciate it. I really need to know how and where to make calls to the various member functions of the grid class. Every time I try I get undeclared indentifier errors even though I have my ".h" files included.

>> change all instances....
Can you be a little clearer?  Do you have say, 25 edit boxes that you would like to change to a 5X5 grid?

Can you tell me how you are going to implement the grid control?  What exactly do you want to accomplish with it?

What you want to do will decide what kind of grid you want to use.

Let me know and I am sure I can help.

When you insert a msflexgrid or a msdbgrid to your project, a wrapper class containing all the member functions available for that control will be generated.  So, in your ClassView pane, there will be a class called CMSFlexGrid or CMSDBGrid. I would assume that you place your grid on a dialog box. If so, then you can make calls to the member functions in the same dialog class.   Normally, the msflexgrid.h is inserted in your dialog class for you when you insert the grid into your project.  eg, if your dialog class is called msflexdlg.h, then it will contain #include "msflexgrid.h" at the top. If this #include is not there, then you can type it in manually.  That should be it, you can start trying to use all the member functions provided in the wrapper class now.

I hope that helps...
