Hi experts,

I am using TDBGrid 8.0 and VB6.
My grid is unbound, using an XArrayDB.

I want my grid to show ONE row (add new) when it (the grid) is first opened IF the array is empty.

In the OnInit, RowColChange events, I tried to use the AllowAddNew or the Redim 0,0,0,0 or ReDim 0,1,0,0 but it did not work.

How can I do it ?

Thanks

you first set allowaddnew property of the grid to true.
redim the xarray as follows

xarray.redim 0,-1,0,noofcolumns
or
xarray.redim 0,noofcolumns,0,-1

i am not sure whether the columns are first or rows. test, now i am posting this from my home pc i dont have vb here.

Hi again,

I tried what you suggested, but it did not work.

I have partially found the solution. The grid showed 2 rows because I was "adding" twice the record. (1- in the xarraydb and 2-in the grid).

BUT, The row still gets added on top, not in the new row. Is it inherent to the grid or is there a way to keep the new record on the new added row ?

Thanks

>>The row still gets added on top, not in the new row
i am confused. its working on my m/c.
when we enter new record in the new row (with a * mark) and update, the new row is added to xarray. this is normal behaviour of the grid.

Hi,

Are you saying that after an update, it is normal that the new row (* at the bottom) gets added on top of all rows ?

example
before update
row0
row1
row*

after update
row*
row0
row1

Is that normal behavior for the grid ?
Thanks

I haven't check the ComponentOne site. I will, but i have the feeling the problem is due to something in the code.

Sorry, I have no place on the web where to put the screenshot.

Hi,

I was told by a collegue that this behavior is normal, due to the sort on the recordset.

Thanks a lot  for the help
