In vb6 I am trying to color the 2nd row in my datagrid and put the width at 1500.  I have figured out how to do the width but I can't figure out how to change the color of only the second column.  Is this possible?  I am trying to make the column stand out somehow.


DataGrid1.Columns(24).Width = 1500

I don't believe you can do it with a datagrid, but you can with a flexgrid and here's an example I found on the web.


Private Sub Form_Load()
MSFlexGrid1.FixedRows = 0
FlexGridColumnColor MSFlexGrid1, 1, vbRed
End Sub

Public Sub FlexGridColumnColor(FlexGrid As MSFlexGrid, ByVal lngColumn As Long, ByVal lngColor As Long)
    Dim lngPrevCol As Long
    Dim lngPrevColSel As Long
    Dim lngPrevRow As Long
    Dim lngPrevRowSel As Long
    Dim lngPrevFillStyle As Long
    If lngColumn > FlexGrid.Cols - 1 Then
        Exit Sub
    End If
    lngPrevCol = FlexGrid.Col
    lngPrevRow = FlexGrid.Row
    lngPrevColSel = FlexGrid.ColSel
    lngPrevRowSel = FlexGrid.RowSel
    lngPrevFillStyle = FlexGrid.FillStyle
    FlexGrid.Col = lngColumn
    FlexGrid.Row = FlexGrid.FixedRows
    FlexGrid.ColSel = lngColumn
    FlexGrid.RowSel = FlexGrid.Rows - 1
    FlexGrid.FillStyle = flexFillRepeat
    FlexGrid.CellBackColor = lngColor
    FlexGrid.Col = lngPrevCol
    FlexGrid.Row = lngPrevRow
    FlexGrid.ColSel = lngPrevColSel
    FlexGrid.RowSel = lngPrevRowSel
    FlexGrid.FillStyle = lngPrevFillStyle
End Sub
