problem scrolling a msFlexGrid control

Posted on 2004-04-22
Last Modified: 2013-12-26
Hi, I wanted to be able to edit the first three colums of a MSFlexGrid control but also to fix these colums when scrolling to the right (they contain descriptions for the row).
So I coded this in the MSFlexGrid1_Scroll event:
with msflexGrid1
If .ColIsVisible(6) Then 'when column 6 appears it means
                                  'that there a was a shift
        .FixedCols = 3
        .FixedCols = 0
End If
end with

but now I cannot scroll vertically to the bottom of the grid.
I just can get to  row .Rows-2

Any clue?  Thank you very much.

Try this:

 - start new project
 - create MSFlexGrid and a CheckBox
 - paste this code:
Private Sub Check1_Click()
    If Check1.Value = 1 Then                    'Change flexgrid appearance to edit mode
        MSFlexGrid1.FixedCols = 0
        For X = 0 To 2
            MSFlexGrid1.Col = X
            For Y = MSFlexGrid1.FixedRows To MSFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
                MSFlexGrid1.Row = Y
                MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = vbButtonFace
            Next Y
        Next X
    Else                                        'Change appearance back to normal
        MSFlexGrid1.FixedCols = 3
        For X = 0 To 2
            MSFlexGrid1.Col = X
            For Y = MSFlexGrid1.FixedRows To MSFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
                MSFlexGrid1.Row = Y
                MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = vbButtonFace
            Next Y
        Next X
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()                       'Some initialisation
    MSFlexGrid1.Cols = 10
    MSFlexGrid1.Rows = 10
    MSFlexGrid1.FixedCols = 3
    Check1.Caption = "Edit mode"
    Check1.Value = 0
End Sub

Private Sub MSFlexGrid1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    If Check1.Value = 0 Then Exit Sub                     'Ignore keypresses if not in edit mode
    If KeyAscii = vbKeyBack Then                          'Delete last character a cell
        If Len(MSFlexGrid1.Text) > 0 Then MSFlexGrid1.Text = Left(MSFlexGrid1.Text, Len(MSFlexGrid1.Text) - 1)
        GoTo CalculateWidth
    End If
    If KeyAscii = 13 Then                                   'If enter is pressed jump to cell to the right or jump to next row if this is the last cell in current row
        If MSFlexGrid1.Col = MSFlexGrid1.Cols - 1 Then
            If MSFlexGrid1.Row = MSFlexGrid1.Rows - 1 Then
                MSFlexGrid1.Row = MSFlexGrid1.Row + 1
                MSFlexGrid1.RowSel = 0
                MSFlexGrid1.Col = 0
                MSFlexGrid1.ColSel = MSFlexGrid1.Col
            End If
            MSFlexGrid1.Col = MSFlexGrid1.Col + 1
            MSFlexGrid1.ColSel = MSFlexGrid1.Col
        End If
        MSFlexGrid1.TopRow = MSFlexGrid1.Row
        MSFlexGrid1.LeftCol = MSFlexGrid1.Col
        Exit Sub
    End If
    MSFlexGrid1.Text = MSFlexGrid1.Text & Chr(KeyAscii)     'Add the character to current cell
CalculateWidth:                                             'Calculate new width of current collumn
    wasrow = MSFlexGrid1.Row
    LargestWidth = 0
    For X = 0 To MSFlexGrid1.Cols - 1
        MSFlexGrid1.Row = X
        If (Me.TextWidth(MSFlexGrid1.Text) + 200) > LargestWidth Then LargestWidth = (Me.TextWidth(MSFlexGrid1.Text) + 200)
    Next X
    MSFlexGrid1.ColWidth(MSFlexGrid1.Col) = LargestWidth
    MSFlexGrid1.Row = wasrow
End Sub

To implement this into an existing Flex Grid it should be enough just to create Check1 and paste     Check1_Click()      and      MSFlexGrid1_KeyPress     subroutines (without Form_Load), but it depends on what you
already have in your project.
