Is it possible to set the font color per column in a flexgrid? Or maybe even let the characters be transparent?

I don't know about the charecters being transparent but its very easy to set the font color of a cpecific row or a cell in that row to a different color. Here is the example. It sets every other row to another color.I took this from my project so it uses database to populate it. It sets every other row to a specific color. Also if the value in one of my Cells was less then a specific date it would set the color of that cell to another color. If you won't understand something ask. Anyhow you have to use CellBackcolor and CellForecolor properties to set the backcolor and forecolor of the cell to another color. Best of luck.

Do Until rsUser.EOF
         I = I + 1: .Row = I
         J = -1
         For Each fld In rsUser.Fields
             DoEvents       'Process Other Events
             J = J + 1
             If .Row Mod 2 Then
                .Col = J: .CellBackColor = vbGreen
             Else
                .Col = J: .CellBackColor = vbWhite
             End If
             If J = 4 And rsUser!Returned = "False" Then
                If Date > CDate(fld) Then
                   .Col = J
                   .CellForeColor = vbRed: .CellBackColor = vbYellow
                End If
             Else
                    .Col = J: .CellForeColor = vbBlack
             End If
             .TextMatrix(I, J) = fld
         Next fld
         IBar.CurrRecord = I
         rsUser.MoveNext
Loop

Ok, let me refrase. I need some of by columns in my flexgrid to be invisible to the viewer. My first thought was to set the fore- and back color to the same value. However, setting individual columns as unvisible would be a lot better. So how do I do that? There is a method called ColIsVisible which returns a boolean so it should be possible!

The .ColIsVisible property relates to whether the column is in the visible area of the grid, not to the left or right of the columns you can see.

The easiest way to hide a column would be to set its width to 0;

MSFlexGrid1.ColWidth(3) = 0

for example.
