Controlling a MSHFlexGrid using a DLL

I am writing an app that uses ActiveX documents. One of these documents contains a MSHFlexGrid.

I have an XML file which contains parameters to control certain properties of the grid e.g column widths.

Via a dll, containing class modules I need to create a reference to the grid so that from within the ActiveX document I just call a function in the dll which will control properties of this grid.

I have heard this can be done through Property Get, Set statements but have not used these before.

Could anyone point me in the right direction...

In the DLL, add a declaration

Private MyGrid As Object

You can then have a public sub:

Public Property Let GridReference(TheGrid As Object)
  Set MyGrid = TheGrid
End Property

Calling this Property with

MyDll.GridReference = MSHFlexgrid1

Will then set an internal reference to the grid withing the DLL. Any reference to MyGrid then will actually have an effect on the external grid passed in this way.
If you have an MSHFlexgrid component in the DLL project somewhere, you can declare and pass it as MSHFlexgrid rather than as object.
