I'm using Visual Basic 6.

My programs shows data in a grid.
I have tried MSFlexGrid, MSHFlexgrid, DBGrid DataGrid
They dont really fit my purpose.
The MSFlexgrid is not editable, have seen som trix using a textbox floating and so on)

I wants a grid who can easily be populated manaually in code (no bindings to recordset)
and one that the "user" at runtime can edit cells.
Like MSFlexgrid  but easily editable.

Is there a good free ocx component for that?

    SGrid2 is the only free and excellent grid control available. Rest all grid controls are paid third party controls that are pretty expensive ranging from $300 to $700.

    I however still use MSHFlexgrid control for many pruposes as it is very good control if used in a right manner.

    You can find SGrid2 in the following link:

    This grid is an excellent one. Do go through its sample source code that comes with the grid and you will have many surprises in store.
