MSFlexGridWndClass

Nov 25, 2010 at 2:58 PM

We are trying to get data from an application that displays values in a grid format, using an MSFlexGridWndClass, according to SPY++.  Unfortunately, I can't see how to expose the individual cells to get the information out, and SPY++ does not show the entire dataset; it seems like there is some underlying restriction.

I have the application hosted within Visual Studio 2008, and using a CTRL+Click on the 'Application Inspector' does not return a control, so I cannot automatically create the DDA bindings to the control.

Does anyone have any advice how to access data from this control?

I'm afraid I don't know - the system is a very old one, and is copyrighted 1998 - 2003.  If it helps, I've used Process Explorer to show that the MSFLXGRD.OCX is version 6.0.84.18...  Based upon my (admittedly limited) knowledge of VB, I suspect that means it was a VB 6 common control.
