Hi

I would like to know how i can count the number of cells i have selected in my MSHFlexgrid_1.

Normally, it would be a count of all the cells highlighted.

How can i do that?

Thanks again

Hi Wilder,
can you post a snap shot of selection and the expected answer (count of cells)?

It could be a selection per row or per column

Try this.
Dim MaxRow As Long
Dim MaxCol As Long
Dim FirstRow As Long
Dim FirstCol As Long
Dim intCount As Integer

With MSFlexGrid1
    FirstCol = .Col
    FirstRow = .Row
   MaxRow = .RowSel
   MaxCol = .ColSel

   Dim i, j As Integer

   For i = FirstRow To MaxRow
      For j = FirstCol To MaxCol
          intCount = intCount + 1
      Next
   Next
   
   MsgBox intCount
End With

You can use ColSel, RowSel properties to select a specific region of the MSHFlexGrid programmatically, or to read the dimensions of an area that you selects into code.

The cursor is in the cell at Row, Col. The selection is the region between rows Row and RowSel and columns Col and ColSel. Note that RowSel may be above or below Row, and ColSel may be to the left or to the right of Col.

so you will have to do a calculation to determine the number of selected rows or cols by (higher value - lower value +1)

once you have no. of rows and no. of cols, u can multiply for the cells.

Whenever you set the Row and Col properties, RowSel and ColSel are automatically reset, so the cursor becomes the current selection.

even you can select a block of cells from code, you must first set the Row and Col properties, and then set RowSel and ColSel.

hope this helps.

Thanks Sha

MartinLiss

when i'm using code from ID: 40358522, it works but only if i select from left to right or top to bottom.

But if i select from right to left or bottom to top, it does not count.

Would you know why?

Private Sub MSHFlexGrid_1_GotFocus()
'selected_cell
Dim MaxRow As Long
Dim MaxCol As Long
Dim FirstRow As Long
Dim FirstCol As Long
Dim intCount As Integer

With MSHFlexGrid_1
    FirstCol = .Col
    FirstRow = .Row
   MaxRow = .RowSel
   MaxCol = .ColSel

   Dim i, j As Integer

   For i = FirstRow To MaxRow
      For j = FirstCol To MaxCol
          intCount = intCount + 1
      Next
   Next
   
   selected_cell = intCount
End With

End Sub

Do it this way instead.

Dim MaxRow As Long
Dim MaxCol As Long
Dim FirstRow As Long
Dim FirstCol As Long
Dim intCount As Integer
Dim intRow As Integer
Dim intCol As Integer

With MSFlexGrid1
    If .RowSel > .Row Then
        FirstRow = .Row
        MaxRow = .RowSel
    Else
        FirstRow = .RowSel
        MaxRow = .Row
    End If
    If .ColSel > .Col Then
        FirstCol = .Col
        MaxCol = .ColSel
    Else
        FirstCol = .ColSel
        MaxCol = .Col
    End If
    
    For intRow = FirstRow To MaxRow
       For intCol = FirstCol To MaxCol
           intCount = intCount + 1
       Next
    Next
    
    MsgBox intCount
End With
