I have a VB program using a flexgrid. It displays a list of customers. The user has to click on each one to update their status. Is there a way where they can click down, hold and drag to select multiples customers. Any ideas.

Thanks

your user should be able to drag to select multiple rows.
you will need to add code in either the mouseup event or the selchange event, examining the colsel and rowsel properties.
you will need to iterate through the selected rows/columns to update the selected data.

rian,

Did my (rather old) comment help you or are you still searching for a solution?  A "C" grade usually means that you found the answer on your own, but the accepted comment lead towards the solution.  Sometimes a "C" is given when you don't get an acceptable solution.  Since I was the only responder, is there more you need to improve the quality of the solution?

The reason why I gave it as an acceptable answer is the answer was general. It is not your fault. The question was pretty complex. I knew it was using the events you mentioned. I was looking for an example or document which would give me some more insight.

You only needed to ask for more details.  After my initial comment, you didn't participate in the discussion.  I had no way to know if I'd solved your problem, you were working on the solution in my comment, or you were completely lost (beginner level).

Is this still a problem for you?

You can use the .RowSel and .Row properties to determine the two ends of a selected range of cells (or rows).

These values can then be used in a For...Next loop to extract the data in the column that contains customer IDs.
