Problem placing scrollbar controls in flexgrid cells

App consists of a single form which contains a frame and inside that frame is a flexgrid and a indexed vertical scrollbar...

I cannot get the scrollbars to appear on top of the flexgrid. If I drag the scrollbar(0) control onto the flexgrid it does appear at runtime but any children I load at runtime fail to appear ... they do show up once their top and left properties move them out of the "shadow" of the flexgrid...

I have done this before with a textbox and had no trouble, I even revisited the code for that textbox and the only difference I see is the fact that in this case I am loading my controls at runtime from an indexed array  rather than moving the same control around my grid (in the case of the textbox which works fine).

Private Sub MSFlexGrid1_Click()
    Load VScroll1(VScroll1.Count)
    VScroll1(VScroll1.Count - 1).Visible = True
    VScroll1(VScroll1.Count - 1).Top = VScroll1(VScroll1.Count - 2).Top + VScroll1(VScroll1.Count - 2).Height

    'VScroll1(VScroll1.Count - 1).Left = MSFlexGrid1.CellLeft + MSFlexGrid1.Left
    'VScroll1(VScroll1.Count - 1).Width = MSFlexGrid1.CellWidth
    'VScroll1(VScroll1.Count - 1).Height = MSFlexGrid1.CellHeight
    'VScroll1(VScroll1.Count - 1).Top = MSFlexGrid1.CellTop + MSFlexGrid1.Top
End Sub

did you try with zorder property?
I didn't use scrollbars controls but if they have hwnd property you should place them over other controls/windows.
