FlexGrid, or the Microsoft Hierarchical FlexGrid (MSHFlexGrid), is a control for Microsoft Visual Basic that can be used in Microsoft Visual Studio. This control enables advanced features relating to displaying data within a grid. The DataGrid control offers a similar function, but the FlexGrid control does not allow the user to edit the data in the grid. FlexGrid is not installed in the toolbox by default, but it can be quickly activated.
Open your project in Visual Studio.
Click on the "Project" menu. Click on "Components."
Click the "Controls" tab in the dialog box when it opens.
Select "Microsoft Hierarchical FlexGrid Control 6.0". Select "OK". You will now see the FlexGrid control in the Visual Basic Toolbox. Click on this control and drop it on a Visual Basic to use the control.
