FlexGrid Doesn't Exhibit a TextMatrix under .NET

While trying to move to .NET, I have a situation where I want to populate a flexgrid (or Datagrid, if I *really* have to) out of a couple of hashtables ("TransCounts" and "FNames"), like so:

 Sub RefreshGrid()
        Dim iCount As Integer, FName As String, iTranCount As Integer
        Dim StrTransName As String, TransItem As DictionaryEntry

        iCount = 0
        Me.AxMSFlexGrid1.Cols = 3
        Me.AxMSFlexGrid1.FixedCols = 0
        Me.AxMSFlexGrid1.FixedRows() = 0
        Me.AxMSFlexGrid1.Rows = TransCounts.Count
        For Each TransItem In TransCounts
            iCount = iCount + 1
            StrTransName = CType(TransItem.Key, String)
            iTranCount = CType(TransItem.Value, Integer)
            FName = CType(FNames(StrTransName), String)
            AxMSFlexGrid1.Textmatrix(iCount, 1) = StrTransName
            AxMSFlexGrid1.Textmatrix(iCount, 2) = iTranCount
            AxMSFlexGrid1.Textmatrix(iCount, 3) = FName
    End Sub

And of course, VB.NET really doesn't like the TextMatrix bit of a Flexgrid, even though the Object Browser shows us:

Public Property TextMatrix(ByVal Row As Integer, ByVal Col As Integer) As String
    Member of MSFlexGridLib.MSFlexGrid

under Interop.MsFlexGrid

Is there an easy way to do this..? Why does Microsoft have to make everything harder than before??

Try to use .Text property instead of TextMatrix

msfg.Row =1
msfg.Text = "Whatever"

It does work, and I hadn't even tried that before.
Why does Microsoft have to castrate ActiveX controls though.

Just a note: I ended up using a Datagrid bound to a datable that I dynamically build from the two hashtables...
Nice and simple ;)
