msflexgrid works fine in VC++.  It's something you're doing wrong, yourself.

Mike:  Thanks for taking time to answer .My question is not clear. Let me re phrase the question again.I'm using Msflexigrid v5 in a dialog box.Somehow i was not able to control the currently selected cell.As a new user in VC++ , there are many commands that i'm not familiar.
that's say i'm going to control the number of rows,  i  use something like :
      
dlg.m_msflexgrid1.SetRows(3);

but that doesn't work!

did i miss out anything? or wrong way of writing the code?
Pls show me the correct way to code .

Thanks alot!

SetRows() sets the number of total rows in the control.

You want to use SetRow() and SetCol() methods to set the row and column of the currently selected cell. If you want to do multiple-selection, you'll also need to ColSel() and RowSel() methods.

(All this information is in the online help for the control.)

You're trying to manipulate the control before it's actually been created.  You've created an instance of the C++ object that represents your dialog box, but you haven't created the actual window yet. And since you haven't created the actual dialog box window, you haven't created it's child controls--including the flex grid control.

You can't set the properties of the control until it has actually been created.

What you can do, is add a line in your OnInitDialog() function of the dialog after
          CDialog::OnInitDialog();
          m_FlexGrid.SetCols(5); //object.SetCols(long)

This will work fine.

But I'm having another problem, when I'm manipulating the msflexgrid by some text data, it's not showing the rows after 12th row. I'm still working on the same but I'll appreciate any suggestion for that.
