Greetings!

I want create a "Grid control" where I can edit every fiald but without any Database features. I saw it in Delphi and VB but cannot find in VC++.


I found that I can create something like this by using a CListCtrl but there I can edit items only from the first column. I want to be able to edit them all.

How can I do it?

Thank you in advance!

Well, if the control is an activeX control, you can use it in VC++ if you want.

If you have a listcontrol, you can enable full row select like this:

SetExtendedStyle(LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT | LVS_EX_GRIDLINES);

If you want something a bit more feature rich, then you could do worse than look here for a start:

I tested this once (a few versions back) and it worked well.  I stuck with the CListCtrl though, because I trusted it more and I didn't need too much functionality.

I also recommend looking into that class; Chris Maunder usually writes some good code.

An alternative is to just use the MsFlexGrid ActiveX control (which does not support editing) but then apply the information here:

EditGrid.exe: Edit Cells in MSFlexGrid ActiveX Control (Q196833)

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q196833

...which will let your users edit individual cells in the grid.  It also provides a complete project source code which will show you how to implement the ActiveX.
