# determine numbers in a 80 number msflexgrid

Posted on 2014-01-17

I am saving an array of upto 10 numbers to a file the numbers in the array are saved
based on the .cellforecolor in a 80 number msflexgrid
I am trying to deterime how to set the cell images based on the numbers in an array
the array is declared like this
Dim mMarkedNumber(1 To 10)  As Integer
the array holds as many as 10 numbers
example array
1 = 1
2 = 5
3 = 10
4 = 21
5 = 26
6 = 46
7 = 50
8 = 71
9 = 76
10 = 80

columns = 0 To 9
rows = 0 To 7
The problem I am having is determing which number in the msflexgrid matches the number in the array.
Example 4th dimintion = 21
how can i write code to determine which number in the 80 number grid is number 21
flexCleo.row = 2
flexCleo.col = 0
Set .CellPicture = imgSelNotHit
this will select number 21

How can i write this?

got this answer from another forum and it seems to be close:

Given that your flex grid rows and columns start at zero then
Row = value \ 10
column = (value - 1) Mod 10

e.g. If value = 21 then row = 21 \ 10 = 2, column = (21 - 1) mod 10 = 0
So you'd find 21 in row 2, column 0 in the grid.
after testing the code is close except the last column is off by 1 row
mMarkedNumber(1) = 1
mMarkedNumber(2) = 5
mMarkedNumber(3) = 10 'selects 20
mMarkedNumber(4) = 21
mMarkedNumber(5) = 26
mMarkedNumber(6) = 46
mMarkedNumber(7) = 50 'selects 60
mMarkedNumber(8) = 71
mMarkedNumber(9) = 76
mMarkedNumber(10) = 80 'invalid row value
'seems the last column row value is 1 number too many

This modification seems to fix problem, but not sure if this is the correct way
If Right(nu, 1) = 0 Then
.Row = nu \ 10 - 1 ' minus 1 if the last column
.Col = (nu - 1) Mod 10
Set .CellPicture = imgSelNotHit
Else
.Row = nu \ 10
.Col = (nu - 1) Mod 10
Set .CellPicture = imgSelNotHit
End If

The following will give you the cell and row coordinates of any of your numbers. In this example we are looking for the number 21.

``````    Dim intRow As Integer
Dim intcol As Integer

Const TEST = 21

intRow = (TEST - 1) \ 10

intcol = TEST Mod 10 - 1
If intcol = -1 Then
intcol = 9
End If
MsgBox "Number is in row " & intRow & " column " & intcol
``````

I think that most of the better experts will answer followup questions if you don't understand parts of their code. I know I will:)

I think the difference is most of your answers do not need followup and i am not looking for email buddies

I'm not sure what email has to do with it but if you ever have a question about any code that I supply then please just ask.
