What i'm trying to do it to get focus on the cell in the MSHFlexgrid that have the same value from new_user.Text if there is a match.

How can i do that?

 Dim i As Long
    For i = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1

           If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 2) = new_user.Text Then

'MSHFlexGrid1.SetFocus

            MsgBox "User already exist"

            Exit Sub

        Else

        End If
    Next

To highlight the cell you could do something like this.

Dim i As Long
    For i = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1

           If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 2) = new_user.Text Then

            MSFlexGrid1.Row = i
            MSFlexGrid1.Col = 2
            MSFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = vbRed


            MsgBox "User already exist"

            Exit Sub

        Else

        End If
    Next

Open in new window


And to turn it off change the BackColor to 0.

Can we make it to go on the specific cell with the same value right away? Just like the .SetFocus!

Perfect, Thanks again, its working now:

                    If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 2) = new_user.Text Then

                        MSHFlexGrid1.Row = i
                        MSHFlexGrid1.Col = 2
                        MSHFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = vbRed

                        MSHFlexGrid1.Redraw = True    'this must be set before setting TopRow !!!
                        MSHFlexGrid1.TopRow = i
                        'set focus back to grid
                        MSHFlexGrid1.SetFocus

                        MsgBox "Request already exist"

                        Exit Sub

                    Else

                        MSHFlexGrid1.Row = i
                        MSHFlexGrid1.Col = 2
                        MSHFlexGrid1.CellBackColor = vbWhite


                    End If
                Next
