    Merging controls


    Has anyone ever put a checkbox inside a cell of the MSFlexGrid control?

    TIA

    Re: Merging controls


    there are two answers:

    1)the simple one is IT CAN'T BE DONE - MSFlexGrid is a grid of Text entries.
    The cells in the grid are text entries only. To get what you want, try TrueDBGrid
    from APEX, or VSFlexGrid from VideoSoft, or DataWidgets from Sheridan - all
    of these give infinitly more possibilities for Grids that does the lowly
    MSFlexGrid (or it's cousing the Hierarchical FLex Grid)

    2) With a great deal of very painful coding, you can make it LOOK like you
    have placed anoth control in the cells of a MSFlexGrid. It involves palceing
    the controls ON TOP(not in) of the grid, by setting the Top, Left, Height
    and Width of the controls that you want to make appear as if they were in
    the grid. (Yucky code, especially if you want to allow the users to manipulate
    the gid in any way (like resizing columns or rows)

    My advice- get a third party Grid COntrol.

    another.
