There is no way to autoset the column width and height, BUT, you can do something like this... This makes sure the column width is wide enough for the text...

Dim lWidth As Long

MSFlexGrid1.Row = 1
MSFlexGrid1.Col = 1
MSFlexGrid1.Text = "This is a test of the emergency broadcast system"
Form1.FontName = MSFlexGrid1.CellFontName
Form1.FontSize = MSFlexGrid1.CellFontSize
Form1.FontBold = MSFlexGrid1.CellFontBold
lWidth = Form1.TextWidth(MSFlexGrid1.Text) + 120
If MSFlexGrid1.ColWidth(MSFlexGrid1.Col) < lWidth Then
    MSFlexGrid1.ColWidth(MSFlexGrid1.Col) = lWidth
End If

Hi MCRIDER

Your code work fine for the width, no idea how to set the height? My problem is that some of the rows might have newline characters and I want to display these rows.

PS. If I don't get anything extraordinary I will reward you!

Here you go... This does both height and width.  Width gets set with the width of the longest line in multiple line text...


    Dim lWidth As Long
    Dim lHeight As Long
    Dim iVal As Long
    Dim jVal As Long
    Dim lBuf As String
   
    With MSFlexGrid1
        .Row = 1
        .Col = 1
        Form1.FontName = .CellFontName
        Form1.FontSize = .CellFontSize
        Form1.FontBold = .CellFontBold
        .Text = "This is a test of the" + vbCrLf + "emergency broadcast system" + vbCrLf + "This is only a test"
        iVal = 1
        Do
            jVal = InStr(iVal, .Text, vbCrLf)
            If jVal = 0 Then
                lBuf = Mid$(.Text, iVal)
                If lWidth < Form1.TextWidth(lBuf) + 120 Then
                    lWidth = Form1.TextWidth(lBuf) + 120
                End If
                Exit Do
            End If
            lBuf = Mid$(.Text, iVal, jVal - iVal)
            If lWidth < Form1.TextWidth(lBuf) + 120 Then
                lWidth = Form1.TextWidth(lBuf) + 120
            End If
            iVal = jVal + 2
        Loop
        If .ColWidth(.Col) < lWidth Then
            .ColWidth(.Col) = lWidth
        End If
        lHeight = Form1.TextHeight(.Text) + 120
        If .RowHeight(.Row) < lHeight Then
            .RowHeight(.Row) = lHeight
        End If
    End With
