I was wondering in vb6 if it was possible to have a sidebar on the msFlexgrid where it numbers the rows.  Simalar to the same style of a header for a column, except in this case for each row, so that a user could see the amount of rows by number.

You'll need to add a new first column but then you can do this.

Private Sub Form_Load()

Dim lngRow As Long

MyGrid.FixedCols = 1
For lngRow = 0 To MyGrid.Rows - 1
    MyGrid.TextMatrix(lngRow, 0) = lngRow + 1
Next
End Sub

Open in new window

Then do I have to manually label them?

If the number of rows doesn't increase then no, you can just use the code I supplied. If the number of rows increases then do this when you add a new row.

' Add the new row
MyGrid.Rows = MyGrid.Rows + 1

' Number the new row
MyGrid.TextMatrix(MyGrid.Rows - 1, 0) = MyGrid.Rows

In any case I'm glad I was able to help.
