MSFLEXGRID and CONTEXTMENU

P: n/a
I have a VB6 application that uses MSFLIXGRID's all ove the place to display
lists. I programed a popupmenu to display when a click event occured on the
gird and it displays a menu to Add, Change, Delete, etc.

I am attempting to convert the application to VB.NET and off coursethe
Popupmenu is not supported. The closes thing I can find is the Context Menu.
But when I try and find information about how to use it it tells me to
connect it ti the object using the contextmenu property w iton about using
like I did with the popupmenu it says to associate it with the control usng
the contextmenu property? The meflexgid from the axmsflexgridlib does not
have a contextmenu property?

Help!!!

Newbie,

The simple advise I always give about the MSFlex grid from VB6 is:
don't try to use it in VBNet, you will probably be one of the first who
succeed.

As alternatives are the datagrid or some component flexgrid, one of those is
the ComponentOne flexgrids as in the resourcekit.

VB.net Resource kit
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbrkit/default.aspx

And if you have problems installing the resource kit
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbr...q/#installvdir

I hope this helps something?

I suggest that you want to take the opportunity to learn about how the new
datagrid works.
I used to use the flexgrid a lot as a selector and avoid bound grids in vb6.
I'm a big fan of the new datagrid.
Find george shepherd's site, he has a good FAQ on the datagrid.
