None of the grid controls that come Vb will do that. Use ListView control instead by setting refernce to Microsoft Common Windows Controls and setting the gridlines and checkboxes property of the listview control to true. In case you want headers like in grid controls then set the View property to lvwReport.

SGrid2 apart from free VB grids is a very interseting grid that would interest you. Have a look at it:

Apart from this all grid controls are expensive controls that can of course provide you with checkboxes. Some are like Ultragrid from Infragistics, TrudeDBgrid from ComponentOne etc.

To see examples and working code with Listview, go to freevbcode.com and serach for ListView. You will get many many links over there. I have just done the search myself.
