which can drag-drop, copy-paste-cut, etc

Ok, once you have created your application succefully, go to ClassWizard (with Ctrl-W), select your "view" class (CSomethingView) in the combobox (top-right of dialog). Then select your view class again in the listbox at the middle-left, to the right will appear many "messages types", select WM_LBUTTONDOWN, etctera, and create a function for everyone pression the "Add function.." button. Finally press "Edit code..." and you will see the code that ClassWizard have created. But as I said you, it is a long question, can't write an entire book here.

I think you don't need a grid component for that. You will work less if you start your app from zero, because it has a few requirements.

It is like a puzzle. Will be easy with MFC. But is a long answer.

Start creating an MFC based application, SDI type,  with Doc/view support.
I don't have the details of how you will store your data, but you will need to manage a bidimensional array of CBitmap objects, to draw them on screen, just do it inside your view's OnDraw function with a for (...) loop.
To implement drag-and-drop, just have to intercept WM_LBUTTONDOWN, WM_MOUSEMOVE and WM_LBUTTONUP events.

How to intercept WM_LBUTTONDOWN, WM_MOUSEMOVE and WM_LBUTTONUP events? (because I'm newbie in VC++)
Or maybe you can give me sample program for it? If you can, send it to

Is there no component like this?
