Using MSHFlexGrid control in an MFC DLL

Hi Experts,

I've created a regular MFC DLL that displays a dialog window when called.

On this dialog I'm trying to put a MSHFlexGrid control. Every time I put the

MSHFlexGrid control on the dialog though, it causes the dialog box not to appear.

The rest of the porgram runs fine. If I delete the grid control from the dialog and

run the program, the dialog window will appear. Am I forgetting to init something

with the grid control, or is this being caused by something else?

Dialog Properties -> More Styles ->
*check* the box, "no fail create" and run. Now u can see the dialog right?

but not the FlexGrid.

So call "AfxEnableControlContainer()" in your App class' InitInstance

like

BOOL CContainerApp::InitInstance()
{
        AfxEnableControlContainer();
        ...
}

If again problem...you can try CoInitialize(NULL) also

Good Luck
