VB3 Flexgrid column disappears when mouse dragged from right to left

I have to put an old VB3 application on an XP PC.  It is using a flexgrid with four columns.  I noticed if you click a mouse on the last column on the right of the flexgrid and hold the mouse down and then drag it over to the left past the left that the left-most column disappears.  But if you keep the mouse clicked down and drag it over past the left margin of the flexgrid that the left-most column reappears.  I'm in the field and don't have time to upgrade to vb6 or higher.  Is there some way to have vb3 ignore a mousemove?  This only happens if I click and drag starting in the right-most column.  All columns stay visible if I start the click and drag event in any column other than the last.  I want to be able to click in any row to highlight the row, and that works fine right now.  It's only the click and drag to the left that causes problems.  There is no requirement in the software for someone to use a mouse drag type of event.  Thanks!

good afternoon!

in vb6 there is a flexgrid property "AllowUserResizing". If you find it on vb3
you may set that like this ... AllowUserResizing =flexResizeNone .... using these
code the columns and the rows of the flexgrid cannot be drag anymore...


i hope this will give u idea...

There is no AllowUserResizing property in vb3.  What worked was changing the number of ScrollBars to 0 whenever there was a mouse click event in the grid, and then resetting the number of ScrollBars back to what it was before the mouse click event.
