Hi,
I'm using VSFlexgrid on my forms and I am using VB6 language. I want to multiply column 1 with column 2 and the result will be placed in third column like we do in price multiply by qty to get total amount and also I want to get all rows total in a text box outside the grid.
 thanks

khalidsuhail; To get the result of multiply col1 * col2, you can do...
while you are populating the grid... you must get the total of the multiply operation of each row...
With VSFlexgrid1
   .TextMatrix(ActualRow, 1) = 2 'qty
   .TextMatrix(ActualRow, 2) = 1.25 'price
   .TextMatrix(ActualRow, 3) = val(.TextMatrix(.row, 1)) * val(.TextMatrix(.row, 2))
end with
...do this for each row that you add to the grid

then, you can obtain the total result of col3 with the Aggregate Property, like this...
With VSFlexgrid1
   txtTotal.text = .Aggregate(flexSTSum, .fixedRows, 3, .rows-1, 3)
end with

I hope the helps you.
Regards.

ah, SO you want to calculate the multiply after the user input the values in the grid.
So, you must do that, in the NEXT EVENT.

Private Sub VSFlexgrid1_AfterEdit(ByVal Row As Long, ByVal Col As Long)
    With VSFlexGrid1
        .TextMatrix(Row, 3) = Val(.TextMatrix(Row, 1)) * Val(.TextMatrix(Row, 2))
    End With
End Sub
