VB6 - Select value from grid and highlight same value in grid 2

Posted on 2013-02-01
Last Modified: 2013-02-02
Hello all

I would like to be able to select a row in my MSHFlexgrid1 and from that specific row, it would search for the value in column 4 into the MSHFlexgrid2 column 1. If there is a perfect match, it would select the MSHFlexgrid2 row and put the column: MSHFlexGrid2.CellBackColor = &H80FF& in the column 1.

if i select MSHFlexgrid1 row 5, in column 4 i have the value: TEST1

If in my MSHFlexgrid2 row 27 column 1 i also have the value: TEST1, it would select that row and add the backcolor in the cell : MSHFlexGrid2.CellBackColor = &H80FF&

How can i do that?

Thanks again for your help

Dim LastMatch
Dim myRow
On Error Resume Next
    For myRow = LastMatch To MSHFlexGrid2.Rows
        If MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(myRow, 1) = MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(MSHFlexGrid1.Row, 4) Then
            MSHFlexGrid2.TopRow = myRow
            MSHFlexGrid2.Row = myRow
            MSHFlexGrid2.Col = 1
            MSHFlexGrid2.CellBackColor = &H80FF&
            Exit Sub
            MSHFlexGrid2.CellBackColor = &H80000005
        End If
    Next myRow
End If
