MSFlexGrid not supported?

P: n/a
Ben
after I migrated to dotNet, migration wizard transferred over my vb6.0
Msflexgrid activex com as a dll, it putted it in my bin dir as
AxInterop.MSFlexGridLib.dll. however, I can't use this control at all. each
time, I opened up my form layout. I get this message:
"The following exception has occurred:
TargetInvocationException: Unable to get the window handle for the
'AxMSFlexGrid' control. Windowless ActiveX controls are not supported"

This is what preventing my form fron loading in runtime. I don't quite
understand. I'd tried to addon this dll into my toolbox but it wouldn't
allow me doing that either. Could someone please suggest me a way a solution
as to what went wrong? Are there any other .NET components like MSFLexGrid?
I really need this control as it plays a significant role in my companys
application? Thanks.

I like to mention that this is a Datagrid .net com avaliable but this is not
the same as MSFlexGrid activex, or is it?

Ben,

I write forever when somebody has problems with the MSFlexGrid in VBNet.

"Will the first who succeeded really to use it in VBNET sent a message how?

You understand it probably no message until now.

Try the DataGrid. We have a bunch of samples on our website, either with a
database or without a database.

I hope this helps,

Cor
