Can't seem create the last column of the Grid by itself in the vbAccelerator Grid for Outlook 2007 VBA script

We are working in Outlook 2007 VBA using a Grid from vbAccelerator.com

For some strange reason, we can't seem to get the last column (in the example below is "Comments") to display without adding an additional line (see line "blank").  If we don't add the "blank" line, the "Comments" doesn't appear (see pic); only if we include the "blank" line.

How can we add a column correctly to the Grid?

oops, the forgot script and pic:

Private Sub AddColumns()
  Dim nCol As Integer
  With UserForm1.gridItemsFound
    .Redraw = False
    'This setups the Header of the Grid
    'first columns header will be adjusted while code is running
    .AddColumn vKey:="Date", sheader:="Date", eAlign:=ecgHdrTextALignLeft, bRowTextColumn:=True, lcolumnwidth:=60
    .AddColumn vKey:="Project", sheader:="Project", eAlign:=ecgHdrTextALignLeft, bRowTextColumn:=True, lcolumnwidth:=300
    .AddColumn vKey:="Subject", sheader:="Email", eAlign:=ecgHdrTextALignLeft, bRowTextColumn:=True, lcolumnwidth:=300
    .AddColumn vKey:="Task", sheader:="Task", eAlign:=ecgHdrTextALignLeft, bRowTextColumn:=True, lcolumnwidth:=200
    .AddColumn vKey:="Type", sheader:="Type", eAlign:=ecgHdrTextALignLeft, bRowTextColumn:=True, lcolumnwidth:=100
    .AddColumn vKey:="Dept.", sheader:="Dept", eAlign:=ecgHdrTextALignLeft, bRowTextColumn:=True, lcolumnwidth:=100
    .AddColumn vKey:="Comments", sheader:="Comments", eAlign:=ecgHdrTextALignLeft, bRowTextColumn:=True, lcolumnwidth:=100
    .AddColumn vKey:="blank", sheader:="blank", eAlign:=ecgHdrTextALignLeft, bRowTextColumn:=True, lcolumnwidth:=10
    .Redraw = True
  End With
End Sub

Chris here

Yes, I noticed that too at my end.

The "quick" workaround you have performed is the correct one.

I will investigate the code I have already supplied to you and get back to you.

Cheers
Chris

Hi Ramante,

1)
According to vbAccelerator - SGrid 2.0 Documentation:
The row-text column is used to display text and/or icons which stretch across multiple columns
in the grid. The Row-Text column renders below the standard columns. If you are using one,
the row-text column must always be the last column in the grid.

With Code you posted you schould get Error:
"Cannot add a second row text column to the grid".

change:
bRowTextColumn:=True
in each Column to:
bRowTextColumn:=False

2)
If you nead a Row-Text column, add one after Column "Comments" and set it's bRowTextColumn:=True

Ramante is not using version 2 of the Grid yet, so that error does not occur.
(We will move onto Grid2 later).

I am the original coder for Ramada and I am currently investigating the reason.

Stand By....

Ok, Ramnante, that slipped by me :-)

I have amended my code at this end too so I can work on your other questions now.

Note that I have seperated the "Column Indexing" now into a seperate subroutine. This will make calls to that subroutine easier should we need it.

Have you added the "ID" column in yet (hidden) ?

It is needed to allow the user interaction with the email item directly from your Grid.


Cheers
Chris

Please explain the additional lines in the routine AddColumns():

    For nCol = 2 To .Columns
      .ColumnOrder(nCol) = GetSetting(Application.Name, "Setup", "ColOrder" + CStr(nCol), nCol)
      .ColumnWidth(nCol) = GetSetting(Application.Name, "Setup", "ColWidth" + CStr(nCol), 100)

Oops!

You last question slipped by me and I have only just noticed it!

What the function "GetSetting" does is pick up from the Registry the stored "Column Orders" amd Column Widths" for each column which should be saved in your code somewhere (usually in the "Unload" method of a form or in the closing code just as your VBA code finished.

The code should like something like this:

      With UserForm1.gridItemsFound
         For nCol = 2 To .Columns
             SaveSetting  Application.Name, "Setup",  _
                                 "ColOrder" + CStr(nCol), .ColumnOrder(nCol)
             SaveSetting  Application.Name, "Setup", _
                                 "ColWidth" + CStr(nCol), .ColumnWidth(nCol)
         Next
      End With

You may now close this question if all is OK.

Chris
