    Hi,

    There is no such tutorial. But, VSFlexGrid can be used in .Net environment like any other ActiveX control as mentioned here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/visual-basic/programming-guide/com-interop/how-to-work-with-activex-controls

    Please note, we do not recommend using the COM controls in .Net environment. I would rather suggest you to go with the .Net version of VSFlexGrid, i.e., C1FlexGrid:

    Hello Pragati,
    in C1FlexGrid can i use the same Properties as in vsflexgrid8.
    I mean like fg.textmatrix(r,c) or fg.colhidden(c) fg.cell(flxcpbackground,r,c,r,c) and so on

    Thanks

    Hi Paul,

    .Net version of FlexGrid has different properties for accomplishing the same purpose. If you are writing new applications, you should use C1FlexGrid control. But, if you are porting existing applications that use the VSFlexGrid ActiveX control and want to change as little code as possible, then use the C1FlexGridClassic control.

    Please refer the following documentation link for more information on differences between .Net and ActiveX versions of FlexGrid:

    Thanks,

    Hello,
    i had paused ...
    Now i will use C1FlexGridClassic control.
    In ActiveX i say .textmatrix(r,c)="Hello"
    In C1FlexGridClassic i cant find .textmatrix(r,c) but set_textmatrix(r,c,Value)

    Do i have to change all .textmatrix() in my code ???, or my i find find .textmatrix(r,c)=Value anywhere?

    Thanks
