--------------- code -------------------
    ContactList.AddItem Text1.Text
    ContactList.Rows = NUM_ROWS
    ContactList.Cols = 2
    ContactList.FixedRows = 0
    ContactList.FixedCols = 0
    ContactList.GridLines = flexGridNone
    ContactList.SelectionMode = flexSelectionByRow
    ContactList.RowHeightMin = imgOnline.Height + _
        ScaleY(2, vbPixels, vbTwips)
    ContactList.ColWidth(0) = imgOnline.Width
    ContactList.ColWidth(1) = 8000
    ContactList.Clear
        ContactList.Row = NUM_ROWS - 1
        ContactList.Col = 0
        Set ContactList.CellPicture = imgOnline.Picture
        ContactList.Col = 1
        ContactList.TextMatrix(NUM_ROWS - 1, 1) = Text1.Text
        NUM_ROWS = NUM_ROWS + 1
        ContactList.AddItem imgOnline.Picture

try this approach...

Private Sub Form_Load()
    formatContactList
End Sub

Sub formatContactList()
    With ContactList
        .Rows = 1
        .Cols = 2
        .ColWidth(0) = 2000
        .ColWidth(1) = 2000

        .TextMatrix(0, 0) = "Name"
        .TextMatrix(0, 1) = "Contact Number"
       
    End With
   
End Sub

'TO add item on the ContactList...
Sub addContact()
   
    With ContactList
        .AddItem "<the name to be add>" & vbTab & "<the contact to be add>"
    End With

End Sub

yes it is possible, to select first b4 pop-ups appear...

to make the contact list in order, u can manipulate your retrieval data from the server
already sorted before adding it to the flexgrid..
