I am using VB5 with SP3. I am trying to populate an UNBOUND DBGrid (5 columns) from a recordset. I do not want to use a bound DBGrid. I cannot understand the on-line help particularly the section on the RowBuffer.

Can someone set out the code in simple terms to populate the grid. It will usually be 5 or 6 rows.

This is many, many KB of code. The code is ugly and DBGrid control is also ugly.

What is the record count of your recordset?

i'm using VB6 currently.  I think to populate unbound data to grid display, it is easier if use MSFlxGrd/MSHFlxGrd control. Below is simple setting that might be useful for u, connected to access database.


Dim lPcode As String
lPcode = txtName.Text
dtaDetail.RecordSource = "Select RSLT_6COPY, RSLT_PCODE, RSLT_PNAME, RSLT_SUPCD, RSLT_DDATE, RSLT_IDATE from InspectResult where RSLT_PCODE = '" & lPcode & "'"
dtaDetail.Refresh

Use the flex grid.  Much easier than the DBgrid.

then to add the records from a created recordset all you have to do is loop through

While Not rsNontrol.EOF
        msNontrol.AddItem (rsNontrol("Name") & vbTab & rsNontrol("Position") & vbTab & rsNontrol("SEX") & vbTab & _
        rsNontrol("Race") & vbTab & rsNontrol("education") & vbTab & rsNontrol("remarks"))
        msNontrol.RowData(msNontrol.Row) = CLng(rsNontrol("id"))
        rsNontrol.MoveNext
    Wend

Was hoping to use the DBGrid but it seems that everyone agrees the MSFlexGrid is better. Thanks.
