I am trying to update a 8 row 10 column msflexgrid, but cannot stop the flicker in the cells
setting the autodraw to false then true helps, but does not stop it completely.
How can this be fixed ?
the code
 Sub ResetBoard() 'reset all the cells back to form load(imgCellBG.Picture)
 Dim r As Integer
    Dim c As Integer
    flexCleo.Redraw = False
    DoEvents
    For c = 0 To 9
    For r = 0 To 7
    With flexCleo
    .Col = c
    .Row = r
   
      .CellForeColor = vbWhite '.CellPicture = imgHitUnSelected.Picture
    Set .CellPicture = imgCellBG.Picture
     
    End With
    Next
    Next
    flexCleo.Redraw = True
 End Sub

Try this. Add the following API declaration at the top of your form

Private Declare Function LockWindowUpdate Lib "user32" (ByVal hwndLock As Long) As Long

Open in new window


And then try this
Sub ResetBoard() 'reset all the cells back to form load(imgCellBG.Picture)
 Dim r As Integer
    Dim c As Integer
    'flexCleo.Redraw = False
    LockWindowUpdate flexCleo.hWnd
    DoEvents
    For c = 0 To 9
    For r = 0 To 7
    With flexCleo
    .Col = c
    .Row = r
   
      .CellForeColor = vbWhite '.CellPicture = imgHitUnSelected.Picture
    Set .CellPicture = imgCellBG.Picture
     
    End With
    Next
    Next
    'flexCleo.Redraw = True
    LockWindowUpdate False
 End Sub
