Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I've a MSHFlexgrid connected to a ADODB.recordset that retrieve decimal numbers.
But the MSHFlexgrid doesn't show them with the comma, only with the dot.

How can a solve this problem.
I've tried the datagrid, and MFlexgrid and they show the values just fine.

you can loop through the lines and columns of your grid and use the Format function to display what you want:

With mshfgMB
   For intLine = gkbytStartLine To .Rows - 1
      For intCol = gkbytStartCol To .Cols - 1
        .TextMatrix(intLine, intCol) = Format(sngTotal, "###,##0.0000")
End With

hi asimoes,
If u take my advice,dont connect mshfgrid to recordset
instead write ur code,it is not big dealwriteing few lines,the flexibility it gives is high and u can play around the u want.
if u want to merge repeated rows then use merge property.
what ever data u put will be in text,u can format  it the way u want.
if u want further help reply back.
This advice should help u

Private Sub showsales(rsshowsales As ADODB.Recordset)
   Dim i As Integer
   hfgridSales.Rows = rsshowsales.RecordCount + 1
   With hfgridSales
       For i = 1 To .Rows - 1
       .TextMatrix(i, 0) = rsshowsales.Fields(2)
       .TextMatrix(i, 1) = Format(rsshowsales.Fields(0), "dd/mmm/yyyy")

       .TextMatrix(i, 5) = rsshowsales.Fields(11)
       .TextMatrix(i, 6) = rsshowsales.Fields(3)

       If rsshowsales.Fields(8) = "Add K.S.T" Or rsshowsales.Fields(8) = "Add C.S.T" Then
          .TextMatrix(i, 11) = Mid(rsshowsales.Fields(8), 5, Len(rsshowsales.Fields(8)) - 4)
         .TextMatrix(i, 11) = rsshowsales.Fields(8)
