Hi,

After having gone through various grid activex controls on the net and finiding that they don't do what I need or are to expensive for my employer, I am looking to make my own. Not easy I'm sure but I will give it a good go.

My questions is: does anyone know of a good online tutorial for creating custom controls, or failing that a good book? I'm fiarly new to VB.Net but have been using VB6 for a few years now.

Thanks,
Dan

>>or are to expensive for my employer

If you pass more then a day on this project (and you will for sure), it will be cheaper for your employer to buy a control.

Are you aware that ComponentOne is free if you download it from http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbrkit/
