Adding Checkbox Control to Flexgrid

Hi Friends

I wann a solution for how can i add checkbox to a flex grid control.

I am having 6 columns on which first two column with contain text data and remaining four will be check box. So suggest me how I can add checkbox control when I am populating data in flex grid.

I tried with controll array, but my checkbox is not displaying on flexgrid, it is geting displayed on form.

And i wann it to displayed it should not hide if i leave the cell.

The real problem when u use a bitmap, instead of a font/text is that  when u r ready to read the values of the grid, tryin to figure out what cell is checked and whats unchecked, u have to compare the names of the bitmap that u used. If u r using a resource (.res) to store the bitmap and loadin 'em in the grid, ur problem increases because u have nothing to compare with.

I have always used symbolic fonts to achieve this and never had a problem. If however ur sceptical about using certain fonts, u might wanna use symbols like #,@ etc.

.TextMatrix(.Row, .Col) = "#"

anyway cheers

I would do it slightly differently :
There always poses a problem when trying to position a checkbox upon a grid esp when the grid shows vertical scrollers.

what id like to suggest is that u set the text of the cell to look like check or uncheck in the click event of the grid

Private Sub MSFlexGrid1_Click()
With MSFlexGrid1
    .CellFontName = "wingdings"
    .CellAlignment = flexAlignCenterCenter
    .CellFontSize = 16
    If .TextMatrix(.Row, .Col) = vbNullString Then
        .TextMatrix(.Row, .Col) = "ü"
    Else
        .TextMatrix(.Row, .Col) = vbNullString
    End If
End With
End Sub

Subsequently upon save u go thru a routine that'll check the values in the grid and make sense of it

Now that I look at the question again it probably won't solve your problem. Unfortunately whilst the link I provided is great for certain things it doesn't really help much in respect of checkboxes. The only solutions that work with this rather than a commercial grid product which have this functionality is to simulate a checkbox using two bitmaps. If you have an image of a selected and unselected checkbox, you can then use the .CellPicture property of a specified cell to make it appear as if there is a checkbox in the cell. You then need to store a value that corresponds with the displayed image. This can work quite effectively though it is not a perfect solution.
