msflexgrid - Merging header cells without losing selection hightlight
Posted on 2001-08-30
I need to find a way if possible to merge cells strictly in the fixed header rows (which I have done). But not lose the selection highlight. I still want to be able to multselect cells.
Here is a quote from documentation msflexgrid - merge cells:
"When MergeCells is set to a value other than 0 (Never), selection highlighting is automatically turned off. This is done to speed up repainting, and because selection of ranges containing merged cells may lead to unexpected results."
I understand their reasons, but I am only merging cells in the fixed column headers.
Or is there a better way to label columns/rows where the text can span more then one column and/or row within the header?
Wish msflexgrid had a CellAlignment - "across cells..."
I know there are 3rd party grids with this ability, but trying to avoid 3rd party controls if possible.
Currently use formula ones grid and it works ok. But becoming expensive to keep upgrading.
