Need Grid Control
Date: 01.08.02 00:27 (Wed, 31 Jul 2002 19:27:49 -0400)
From: Matt
Hi Everybody,

I need a grid control that allows the user to resize columns to make them
wider at run-time, or failing that, allows multi-lined cells. I need to
display come wide text fields in these columns.

Thanks,
Matt

Take a look at www.einhugur.com. He has a number of grid control plugins,
support is good and the price is very reasonable.

Chris,

I use the einhugur stuff, but as far as I can tell none of their grid
controls allow the user to resize columns. I hope that I am missing
something... And to be precise, I am speaking of the user clicking on the
column border and dragging to the right to widen it. (I am spoiled by Visual
Basic 6's DBGrid control.)

Despite all the improvements introduced in ListBox control, we still need a
spreadsheet like DataGrid control that can handle a large number or rows,
especially when we develop databases front end applications.

Look on his web site for a link to CColumnResize. It's an open source
project that adds column resizing to StyleGrid.

Chris,

I spent a couple of hours building the Einhugur/CColumnResize stuff into my
app today. Everything was just beautiful until I realized that the other
open windows in my app lost the ability to redraw themselves. So it seems
like this solution is only workable for apps that only use one window. If
you have a work-around for this I would really appreciate it. Of course,
that would be a work-around for the work-around for the work-around, which
makes me nervous. Failing that, I will have to go with a crappy-ass
interface and then listen to my Mac customers complain about how the Mac
version is so lame compared to the Windows version, which is written in VB6.

I haven't used the grid column enough to know what's wrong. You should post
a message to Einhugur's yahoo group. Response is usually the same day.
There's a URL on his site to join.

Any reason a ListBox wouldn't work?

But the original post said:

...which indicates to me that IF resizable columns weren't possible, then
multiple lines was an acceptable alternative. At least that's how I
interpreted the message.

Oh, ok. I didn't see the or statement. Serves me right for speed reading.

Steve's right. Use RB 4.5 and all should be good. There is a new property
which allows columns to be resized at runtime.

Come to think of it, you cold probably do multiple lines per cell too, if
you wanted to handle the cell drawing via the CellTextPaint event.

Hmm. That could work. The question is: Would that be slower, or faster than
the current listbox? lol

I've been doing that ever since they introduced the CellTextPaint event.

So then it performs decently? Good to hear. Did you use an x-dimensional
array to hold the strings and draw them in the cell using WrapWidth in
DrawString?
