Hi hindoddiravikumar,

If you have bound your datagrid to the data source of the ADO Data control there are a couple of ways to change the column headers, the easiest is to do it in the SQL statement that generates the recordset:

Instead of "Select * From MyTable" use "Select MyField1 As [My Primary Key Field], MyField2 As [My Information Field] From MyTable"

To get the maximum value from a field use:

Select Max(MyFieldName) From MyTable

The standard progress bar in the ms windows common controls library doesn't allow you to change the colour, you can however use the Common Controls Replacement Project progress bar from http://www.mvps.org/ccrp which does have a .FillColor property which permits this. It also has a greatly enhanced range of properties and methods but is backwards compatible with the standard progress bar.

flexgrid: change by using alias in the sql
flexgrid: MSFlexGrid1.FormatString = "bhagyesh|trivedi" note that here the column seperator is a pipe symbol
Max value as TimCottee said fire a select max(<fieldname>) from <tablename>
progress bar color : u need to use API simpler will be to make a user control and use it. progress bar will increase ur deployment size . in a user control add a a line control and change the length.

Also a note on the flexgrid, .FormatString property can be used but as the headers are in row 0 you can also use:

MSFLexgrid1.TextMatrix(0,1) = "Hello"
MSFLexgrid1.TextMatrix(0,3) = "Goodbye"
