Thread: Having problems aligning numbers to the left of the cell, in an MSFlexGrid.

    Having problems aligning numbers to the left of the cell, in an MSFlexGrid.

    Before I load the data I set the horizontal and vertical alignment of data within the current cell to the left. FlexGrid.CellAlignment = 2. After I load the grid from the database, if any of the cells have data that contains a number, like '12', that cells data will be align to the right. How can I make all the data align left?

    Thanks Jim

    Hi Jim,

    I'm not a FlexGrid expert, I actually align the text using the FormatString parameters:

    Private Sub Command1_Click()
        'Set the alignement for each colonne    
        Me.MSFlexGrid1.FormatString = "<LeftAlign               |>RighAlign              "
        'Look the alignement
        Me.MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(1, 0) = "Kobold"
        Me.MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(1, 1) = "Kobold"
        Me.MSFlexGrid1.AddItem "hello"
        'The number will be align left
        Me.MSFlexGrid1.AddItem "12"
    End Sub
    hope it helps -- Jeff

    You can also align values in the centreusing the format string.

    Me.MSFlexGrid1.FormatString = "^Center "

    In code you can also use the cellalignment property to align values in a cell.
    Thanks and Good Luck!!

    To tell it in code...

    'need to set the cellalignment of each cell. Thus you have to cycle
    throug them. As you have to do it, you can assign values the old
    way, without using textmatrix or textarray...
    Option Explicit
    Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim intCol, intRow
    With MSFlexGrid1
       .Cols = 5
       .Rows = 5
       For intRow = 1 To .Rows - 1
          For intCol = 1 To .Cols - 1
             .Row = intRow
             .Col = intCol
             'first put value
             .Text = intRow
             'then allign
             .CellAlignment = flexAlignLeftCenter
    End With
    End Sub
    Have happy coding,
