Hi,

I am trying to use the following code for setting the alternating rows in an msHFlexgrid to different color. But its not working. Below is my code. Please help me correct it.

      MSHFlexGrid1.SelectionMode = flexSelectionByRow
            MSHFlexGrid1.AllowBigSelection = True
            Set MSHFlexGrid1.DataSource = rsPatient
           
           
            Dim intCols As Integer
            Dim intCurrRow As Integer
           
            MSHFlexGrid1.Visible = True
            MSHFlexGrid1.Row = 0
            'Fill Columns Headers
            MSHFlexGrid1.ColWidth(0) = 0
           
            On Error GoTo test
            For intCols = 1 To rsPatient.Fields.Count
                MSHFlexGrid1.Col = intCols
                MSHFlexGrid1.Text = rsPatient(intCols).Name
                 MSHFlexGrid1.ColAlignment(intCols) = flexAlignCenterCenter
                MSHFlexGrid1.ColWidth(intCols) = 1200
              Next
test:
            Debug.Print Err.Description
            intCurrRow = 1
            Do While (Not intCurrRow = rsRecCount + 1)
                For intCols = 1 To rsPatient.Fields.Count
                    If intCurrRow Mod 2 = 0 Then
                        MSHFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &HFFFF00     '&HF5F5F5
                     
                    Else
                         MSHFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &H8000&
                    End If
                Next
                intCurrRow = intCurrRow + 1
            Loop
       

Thanks

I think you are forgetting to address the actual cell with the .Row and .Col properties. I've tested with an unbound grid, so the code looks a bit different,  but the relevant lines are indicated
'...
    Debug.Print Err.Description
    intCurrRow = 1
    Do While (Not intCurrRow = MSHFlexGrid1.Rows)
        MSHFlexGrid1.Row = intCurrRow  '<----------------
        For intCols = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Cols - 1
            MSHFlexGrid1.Col = intCols      '<--------------
            If intCurrRow Mod 2 = 0 Then
                MSHFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &HFFFF00     '&HF5F5F5
            Else
                MSHFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = &H8000&
            End If
        Next
        intCurrRow = intCurrRow + 1
    Loop
0

try this.

test:
            Debug.Print Err.Description
            intCurrRow = 1
            Do While (Not intCurrRow = rsRecCount + 1)
                If intCurrRow Mod 2 = 0 Then
                    >>>>MSHFlexGrid1.Cell(flexcpBackColor, intCurrRow, 0, intCurrRow, .Cols - 1) = &HFFFF00
                Else
                    >>>>MSHFlexGrid1.Cell(flexcpBackColor, intCurrRow, 0, intCurrRow, .Cols - 1) = &H8000&
                End If
                intCurrRow = intCurrRow + 1
            Loop
0

Hi GrahamSkan,

That worked. You are right. I had not refereced the .Cols and .Row property.

Thanks

But why would you want to loop through each column instead of doing all columns in one row once to save time.
