In VB6... How do I create a list like the one in this image and how do I populate it.


For example if I wanted the following information as a table within my visual basic program

Log Number |  Logged By  |  Date
001                John               14/10/2008
002                Steve             13/10/2008
003                Helen             12/10/2008

Thank you

I'm afraid to say, that the image is a grid control, not a list, so it's simpliest...
You can use a MSFlexGrid Control and add each cell to the grid easily

Msflex.AddItem "cell1" & vbTab & "cell2" & vbTab & ... "celln"

Hi there,

I have found the MSFlexGrid within the component menu.

It shows titles on columns and rows, my friend says that you have to set it to "Reporter" mode but I dont know where this setting is.

I have looked in the propeties pane and the properties menu that is accessed by right mouse clicking the object.

Thanks for further assistance.

I put this code so you can take an idea of how MsFlexGrid work.
Add a MsFlexGrid control to a Form, and copy-paste the code snippet
You can see that the obtained result is the same of the picture that you have put

Private Sub Form_Load()
    With MSFlexGrid1
        .Cols = 9
        .Rows = 3
        .GridLines = flexGridNone
        'columns titles
        .TextMatrix(0, 0) = "Status"
        .TextMatrix(0, 1) = "Selection"
        .TextMatrix(0, 2) = "Bet Value"
        .TextMatrix(0, 3) = "Index V..."
        .TextMatrix(0, 4) = "Difference"
        .TextMatrix(0, 5) = "Bet Date"
        .TextMatrix(0, 6) = "Bet Time"
        .TextMatrix(0, 7) = "Time Remai.."
        .TextMatrix(0, 8) = "Curren Status"
        .TextMatrix(1, 0) = "Pending"
        .TextMatrix(1, 1) = "Equal to or.."
        .TextMatrix(1, 2) = "5,436.0"
        .TextMatrix(1, 3) = ""
        .TextMatrix(1, 4) = ""
        .TextMatrix(1, 5) = "10/07/2008"
        .TextMatrix(1, 6) = "09:10"
        .TextMatrix(1, 7) = "-"
        .TextMatrix(1, 8) = "Finished (..."
    End With
End Sub
