How can we make MSFlexGrid as spreedsheet, so that we can select multiple cells by draging them? For example, if I drag from cell1 to cell5, the cells should get the different background. When I drag someother area, the previously selected area should be retained.

I have made the property "High Light" as 0(Never), dragmode as automatic and I take care of changing the background color in "DragOver" event. My requirement is fulfilled, but the control is shaking and the entire control gets draged(moved) as the mouse moves. I want to avoid that.

My code is:


Private Sub msxTimeRestriction_Click()
    With msxTimeRestriction
        If .Col = 0 Then Exit Sub
        If .CellBackColor = &H80000005 Then  'white
            .CellBackColor = &H8000&    'Green
        Else
            .CellBackColor = &H80000005
        End If
    End With
End Sub

Private Sub msxTimeRestriction_DragOver(Source As Control, x As Single, y As Single, State As Integer)
    Dim intRow As Integer
    Dim intCol As Integer
    Dim intFixColWidth As Integer
    Dim intColWidth As Integer
    Dim intCellHeight As Integer
   
   
    With msxTimeRestriction
        intFixColWidth = .ColWidth(0)
        intColWidth = .ColWidth(1)
        intCellHeight = .CellHeight

        If x <= intFixColWidth Then
            strDayTime = "Time Restrictions"
        Else
            'Set the row and column appropriately
            intRow = Int(y / intCellHeight)
            If intRow > 6 Then
                intRow = 6
            ElseIf intRow < 0 Then
                intRow = 0
            End If
            .Row = intRow

            intCol = Int((x - intFixColWidth) / intColWidth)
            If intCol > 23 Then
                intCol = 23
            ElseIf intCol < 0 Then
                intCol = 0
            End If
            .Col = intCol + 1
           
        If .CellBackColor = &H80000005 Then  'white
            .CellBackColor = &H8000&    'Green
        Else
            .CellBackColor = &H80000005
        End If

        End If


    End With

End Sub

My requirement is:

Changing the background color of the cells which I select thru mouse. The selection will be multiple cells at random place. Currently, with MSFlexGrid, I can select multiple cells, at that time,the selected cells got focused. Then, if I go for selection in some other group of cells, the focus is moved to the new place, and the background change of my previous selection got lost. I want to overcome this. Please help me.
