Force a Single Select for a Grid

Force a Single Select for a Grid

Setting the SelectionMode property of the MSFlexGrid to flexSelectionByRow forces all columns in a row to be selected rather than a single cell. It also allows selection of multiple rows simultaneously. To force a single row selection for a grid, I have a function called UpdateGrid that ensures only one row is selected, regardless of a drag on the rows or if the Shift and the Up and Down arrow keys are used. This is useful if you want to present a list of items in a grid format and only want one highlighted:

 Sub UpdateGrid(grdInput As MSFlexGrid)	If grdInput.Rows = (grdInput.FixedRows + 1) Then		' only one row in the grid and it		' it a fixed one: don't do anything		Exit Sub	Else		' more than one row in the grid		If grdInput.RowSel <> grdInput.Row Then			' user selected a different row in the grid 			' than the current row:			' set it to the highlighted row			grdInput.RowSel = grdInput.Row		End If	End IfEnd Sub

In the SelChange event for a grid, put in this code:

 Private Sub myGrid_SelChange	UpdateGrid myGridEnd Sub
