File Information

Creates a graph and a data table below it.
  the table is put in an activex control using
  the column labels colhead
  This function is meant to be an example for CSSM and not
  to be used as is.
  It is meant to demonstrate ActiveX grid usage and works with
  MSFLEXGRID (which comes with Windows and doesn't allow editing)
  and SIMPLE GRID (which is available for free at ).
  Use 'SGRID' for the whichgrid parameter to use
  simple grid, but you must first you must download it from the above
  website and register it. To register, find sgrid.ocx by clicking on
  the windows start button and selecting "find". Change your directory
  to its directory and type "regsvr32 sgrid.ocx"

Is this control still available for free download? If so can you tell me where I might find it? I found a download at for around $93.00. Or is there a better method now, 7 years later? Thanks.

I have tried using the matlab uitable object to house the data, it prints, but it will always go out of position when being printed since the table is hard anchored on the figure and moves to unintended location when it prints due to resizing issue.

Good work, however the same problem as Eric was pointing out that the grid does NOT print out, which makes it not quite as useful as it could be, as I have been looking hard for a solution in matlab to display tabulated data.

i need command to build graph using mfc.

I can get it to work with MSFlexGrid, but when I print the figure, only the graph prints. The table doesn't print nor is it visible with a print preview. If I can't print the figure, it definitely makes it less useful.

Dear Michael Robbins,
I need help to made selection in control MS FlexGrid to save this how new variable. If you can say me where check properties, methods and actions of control.

Thank you

1. got a question: how to you make msflexgrid run on the machine where you've got no vb or ms vc? it looks like simply registering an ocx is not enough.
2. why do you think that flexgrid allows no editing? you just write down a keydown and keypressed events and to it yourself.
3. thanks! was a real pleasure to play with your proggy

Slick. One bug - the sgrid "font" property wants to be a handle, not a string. Not sure how to get around this now, so just commented that line (line 175) out of the sample. Also , formulas do not us the "=" token as in excel - e.g. a formula like "=A1+1" in excel would be written as "A1+1" in sgrid. Otherwise pretty cool.
