How would I trap a click or mousedown event to the Header of a flex grid??? An example would be if I user clicks the Name header of the grid. I want the rows to be sorted in order of Name. Any ideas?? Code would be helpful

code as follows or set up however you want....


Private Sub grdTest_Click()
   Static SortOrder As SortSettings

   If grdTest.Row = 0 And grdTest.Col <> 0 Then
      If SortOrder = flexSortNone Or SortOrder = flexSortGenericDescending Then
         grdTest.Sort = flexSortGenericAscending
      Else
         grdTest.Sort = flexSortGenericDescending
   End If
End Sub

I suppose there is a problem with the flexgrid settings. Everytime I click anywhere on the header, it always wants to select the first item in the list.  So flex1.row will always = 1. What are your default settings when you try your code. It doesn't seem to work on my end.. thanks!

I have fixedrows set to 1...
Short of that nothing.  We use it all of the time.

other than that....

   Begin vsFlexLib.vsFlexArray grdQuery
      Height          =   1452
      Left            =   180
      TabIndex        =   16
      Top             =   1080
      Width           =   7092
      _Version        =   196608
      _ExtentX        =   12509
      _ExtentY        =   2561
      _StockProps     =   228
      Appearance      =   1
      ConvInfo        =   1418783674
      FormatString    =   $"OrderQ.frx":08CA
      Rows            =   2
      Cols            =   7
      FixedCols       =   0
      ScrollBars      =   2
      SelectionMode   =   1
      AllowBigSelection=   0   'False
      AllowSelection  =   0   'False
   End

This instance is using the vsflexgrid, but the code and parameter settings are the same for MSFlex.  If you still are having problems, email me the form @ traygreen@hotmail.com and I'll see what I can do.

I mentioned this problem on a newsgroup.  I was told not to use the click event but the mousedown event and do a select case on .mousecol, which does what I want. I appreciate your help anyway. One of the settings you used (AllowSelection  =   0) does not show up as a valid property or method for the msflexgrid.. so there may be diferences.  Is the vsflexgrid control shareware?? I may want to try it to compare the two.
