Scrollbar For DataGrid With One Column


I have a Sheridan Datagrid (SSDBGrid) with just one column. The column width exceeds the width of the grid to cater for long strings. I therefore need to use the horizontal scrollbar to scroll across the grid to view the entire string within the one column. However, this does not work as the scrollbar scrolls over each column and will only scroll the width of the grid.

I have read a similar thread where this problem was encountered with an MSFlexGrid and a workaround solution was to put the grid inside a PictureBox and use normal scroll bars to control it's position inside the PictureBox.

Has anyone experienced this problem with a Sheridan Grid?

Is there anyway that we can scroll across the grid and view the entire width of just one column ??

Thanks, Ant.

Scrollbar For MSFlexGrid With One Column

I have a MSFlexGrid with one column and 100 rows. I put a very long string into a particular row. But I am not able to view the entire string put into the row. The horizontal scroll bars are not enabled. How do we enable the horizontal scroll bar to view the data in the row in the case of MSFlexGrid with one column?

I use the following code.

MSFlexGrid1.Rows = 1000
MSFlexGrid1.ScrollBars = flexScrollBarBoth
MSFlexGrid1.ColWidth(0) = 10000

MSFlexGrid1.AddItem "Required. Integer expression. Numeric expression indicating how many characters to return. If 0, a zero-length string is returned. If greater than or equal to the number of characters in Str, the entire string is returned.

Datagrid Scrollbar

good day, I would like to ask. Is it possible to move the scrollbar of the grid thru code?

Let me explain further. I have two grids. Lets call them grid1 and grid2. And both of them have a vertical scrollbar when filled with data. I want to browse the data at grid2. So I will use the grid2 scrollbar, but I want grid1 to scroll along whenever the grid2 scrolls down and vice versa. How am i going to achieve this?

Thank you

Add Column To Datagrid
Hi everybody; I hope one of you can help me.

I am displaying a table with a datagrid and want to add a column with the values from another table as it's contents.

Both tables have columns titled CODE. The second table has a field called TYPE that corresponds to the CODE (eg. CODE 101 means TYPE Maintenance). What I want to do is put the values of TYPE from the second table into the datagrid displaying the first table I'm not allowed to add a column into the table being displayed by the datagrid.

I'm connecting to the database thru Adodc (DISA for the first table; CODES for the second table)

I found this but when I try to populate the fields from the second Adodc (CODES) it doesn't work. I figure that's because the Datagrid1 is connected to DISA.

Private Sub AddColumn()
Dim c As Column
Set c = DataGrid1.Columns.Add(DataGrid1.Columns.Count)
With c
.Visible = True
.Width = 1000
.Caption = "type"
.DataField = CODES.Recordset.Fields("CODE").Name

'if i use .DataField = DISA.Recordset.Fields("WHATEVER").Name it
'puts the values from 'WHATEVER' into the column "type"

.Alignment = dbgRight
End With
End Sub

Any ideas?? Thanx in advance.

Datagrid Column Width ????
I have two datagrids that are exactly the same. The only difference is that I am using them on different forms, and one of them has a filter.

My question is this.
On the first datagrid, I could write column widths like this
AppointmentsDataGrid.Columns("time").Width = 40
AppointmentsDataGrid.Columns("patient").Width = 150
AppointmentsDataGrid.Columns("Doctor").Width = 150
AppointmentsDataGrid.Columns("status").Width = 50
and the output was as I expected.

but then, on the second grid, when I write the same thing, the column widths get rediculously small. Is there a way of specifying the units used for the column widths that I have missed?

Datagrid Column Question
I have a datagrid and would like all the cells in the first column to be "RECEIVE".
I've tried

DataGrid1.columns(0).text = "RECEIVE"


DataGrid1.columns(0).value = "RECEIVE"

Neither worked

I was reading something about the DefaultValue property in my vb book that seems would work for my problem but ofcourse it has no examples. I also looked it up on the MSDN and it talks about using a Tag property, which I dont know how to use.

How To Set Datagrid Column To Uneditable
Hi. I have a form contains a datagrid (with 2 fields/columns: ID, UserName) and two command buttons ("Add", "View All"). When user clicks on "View All" button, the datagrid will display all the user information (ID 1 to 10) with the "ID" column/field is NOT editable. When the user clicks on the "Add" button, a new row (ID = 11) will be APPENDED as the last row in the current datagrid. In this case, user can add or modify this NEW appended Row (which mean ONLY the row with ID =11 is set to editable) while ID =1 to 10 is NOT editable also. I have use the following methods to make the new row(ID = 11) to editable but to no avail.

Any suggestion is truly appreciated.

'at form load
datagrid.column(0).locked = true

'when user clicks Add button
datagrid.CurrentCellModified = True
datagrid.EditActive = True

Datagrid Column Sizing
I am trying to size the columns of a datagrid in VB6. I have placed a datagrid on a form and use

set r=new ador.recordset 'create disconected recordset


r.fields.append "col name", adVarChar, 500

to append columns.

There are currently 16 columns i use and no matter how i try i cannot get the columns to the size i want, each column needs to be a width that i specify. All columns seem to be of a size that i cannot determin the source of, its not the defCol widths or any value i can see any where else.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

How To Add A Combobox For A Column In A Datagrid
Hi there..
How to add a combobox for a column in a datagrid or dbgrid ..for example in the access tables you can have a pull down list/menu..

The way i add a combobox for a datagrid or dbgrid is to add a separate combobox to the form....

if dbgrid/datagrid has column named product id, when the the user clicks on the column the combobox .left and .height and .top is set to the values of the datagrid.

what it does is it positions the combo box on top of the column in the datagrid.. unfortunately this is not a very easy way of doing..and it does not look good..

is there any other way for me to add a combo box to the datagrid.. doesnt the datagrid/dbgrid has a built in sort of combobox..

Thanking you guys in advance for helpig out..

regards pragash..

Column Lock In Datagrid

Datagrid Column Titles
Ok... I have a datagrid that is attached to an ado control... is there a way of changing column titles after I've sent a query to the ado?

Tag/boolean Column In Datagrid
Can someone show me a sleek way to set a tag/boolean column in the datagrid. I want to accomplish the same task a checkbox would have: the user selects certain records (by putting 1 into the Tag column) and then a new table is created from those records chosen.

The way I have it now partially works. This is my code.

'puts the records user selected into new table
ACCESSdb.Execute "SELECT * INTO [Chosen] FROM [Type] Where Tag = '1' "

ACCESSdb.Execute "UPDATE Type SET TAG = '' where Tag <> ''"
'this resets all the Tags back to nothing

With rsFLEETS2
.ActiveConnection = cn
.CursorLocation = adUseClient
.CursorType = adOpenStatic
.LockType = adLockOptimistic
Print .RecordCount
End With

Set Adodc2.Recordset = rsFLEETS2

This works, IF the user changes the value to 1 and moves off that record. I guess the grid needs that to refresh. If the user changes the Tag to 1 and clicks on Select right away (without moving off the record), it won't return anything.

Does anyone have any idea who I should be doing this?

Summing Up The Column Of A Datagrid
Hi again, this is my recent post since July.

Anyway I have a stupid question to ask:

I have a datagrid populated by a dataset (which was filled by a dataadapter) and I want to know how do I sum up the values in a column (column no. 2 for instance) of the datagrid with a non-fixed number of rows and put the results in a variable for instance. Its that simple, the datagrid is read-only so I dont have to update the data grid, its just the adapter filling up the values from time to time.

I have just learned by browsing that it is not possible to run SQL commands into a dataset and it follows a datagrid. is this true?

I have searched this site for answers but it seems i cannot find the correct thread. Please somebody help me with my problem.

Datagrid DropDownList Column

I'm populating a Datagrid with database values. I have an Edit button column, and what I want to achieve, is that after it's clicked, one of other columns' fields is shown as a Dropdownlist (instead of a Textbox). The values defined in the Dropdownlist do not correspond to any values from the database (they should be fixed values).

I've searched through the web, but I don'y know how to bind such List to one of the columns after the edit button has been clicked. I know this will have something to do with a Datagrid Template Column and Datagrid ItemDataBound event, but I can't seem to work it out.

Can you please help me?

Third Column Of A DataGrid To Show The Value Of ....
Dear Friends,

I am using MS Access Database. The following are the complete details:

Table: Balance

Fields: 1) Received
2) Sold

DataGrid: dbgBalance

CommandButton: cmdShow_Balance

I have three columns in the DataGrid. First column to show the value of “Received” field, the Second column to show the value of “Sold” field and the Third column to show the balance for which there is no field in the table.

So, what I need now is, the Third column should get the value from “Received” field and deduct the value of “Sold” from it and then show the resulted value in DataGrid Column “Balance”.

So, each row in a DataGrid will show the values like this:

1st Row : 5000 – 2000 =3000
2nd Row : 7000 – 6000=1000
3rd Row : ………………….
4th Row : …………………..

And so on ….

How can I do this? Please do help.
