Is it possible to autosize a column in  the msflexgrid countrol ?
I'm loading text into the grid and would like to resize a particular column in the grid, so the user can see all the data.
(I know I can allow the user to resize the column.)
but I'd like to do it automatically.
Any help appreciated

Try this:
 - paste this on the form where is your flexgrid
 - add command button to see how to use it
'---------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub AutoSize(FlexGrid As MSFlexGrid, Column As Integer)
    Dim LongestEntry As Integer
    Dim X As Integer
   
   
    If Column >= FlexGrid.Cols Then
        MsgBox "Column " & Column & " does not exist!"
        Exit Sub
    End If
   
    For X = 0 To FlexGrid.Rows - 1
        If TextWidth(FlexGrid.TextMatrix(X, Column)) > LongestEntry Then LongestEntry = TextWidth(FlexGrid.TextMatrix(X, Column))
    Next X
   
    If LongestEntry < 400 Then LongestEntry = 400
    FlexGrid.ColWidth(Column) = LongestEntry * 1.1
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    AutoSize MSFlexGrid1, 2
End Sub
