    Resolved [RESOLVED] RowHeight in MsFlexGrid

    How can you adjust the height (rowheight) of a MSFLEXGRID cell based on the size or length of a text?
    In all the ways I've tried some of the text sometimes doesn't appear.

    You can also switch to the VBFlexGrid created by Krool, you can find it in the Codebank

    Re: RowHeight in MsFlexGrid

    I had already prepared a routine like in "Autosize RowHeight with WordWrap = True" (http://www.xtremevbtalk.com/showthread.php?t=35110)
    Code:
    Private Sub RowsAdapter(ByRef Grid As MSFlexGrid)
    
       Dim Frml             As Long
       Dim Depth         As Long
       Dim TmpStr           As String
       Dim MyRow            As Long
       Dim X                As Long
       Dim RD               As Boolean
       Dim RHCell           As Long
       Dim VS               As Boolean
    
       With Grid
    
          RD = .Redraw
          VS = .Visible
          .Redraw = False
          .Visible = False
          ScaleMode = vbTwips
    
          For MyRow = 1 To .Rows - 1
    
             Depth = Me.TextHeight("Wg")
             RHCell = IfLng(IsSchoolProv, ROWHGT + ROWHGT, ROWHGT) - Spessore 
    
             .Row = MyRow
             If LenB(.TextMatrix(MyRow, PupilName)) Then
                For X = 1& To .Cols - 1&                       'Dividi_Da
                   Select Case X
                      Case PupilName
                         .Col = X
                         TmpStr = .Text
                         If LenB(TmpStr) Then
                            lBl.Width = 100 
                            lBl.Caption = TmpStr '.Text
    
                            Frml = lBl.Height  
                            If RHCell < Frml Then
                               RHCell = Frml  'FW_EXTRALIGHT '+ 500&
                            End If
                         End If
                   End Select
                Next X
             End If
    
             .RowHeight(MyRow) = RHCell + Depth
          Next MyRow
          .Visible = VS
          .Redraw = RD
          .Refresh
       End With
    
    End Sub
    sometimes it's not possible to make all the lines of text appear inside the MsFlexGrid cell. Additionally, Label1.Width does not keep the value you set; eg. Label1.Width = 100: Debug.Print Label1.Width
    690
    Why?

    It doesn't play as I would like. If you look, you will notice that the last name is not displayed. Download the program from the link:

    Re: RowHeight in MsFlexGrid

    Hello. I made some modifications to your form code. Now it measures the text with API (the label is no longer necessary):

    Code:
    Option Explicit
    
    Private Type DRAWTEXTPARAMS
        cbSize As Long
        iTabLength As Long
        iLeftmargin As Long
        iRightMargin As Long
        uiLengthDrawn As Long
    End Type
    
    Private Type RECT
        Left As Long
        Top As Long
        Right As Long
        Bottom As Long
    End Type
    
    Private Const DT_EDITCONTROL As Long = &H2000&
    Private Const DT_EXPANDTABS As Long = &H40
    Private Const DT_LEFT As Long = &H0
    Private Const DT_RIGHT As Long = &H2
    Private Const DT_CENTER As Long = &H1
    Private Const DT_NOPREFIX As Long = &H800
    Private Const DT_TABSTOP As Long = &H80
    Private Const DT_WORDBREAK As Long = &H10
    Private Const DT_CALCRECT As Long = &H400
    Private Const DT_RTLREADING As Long = &H20000
    
    Private Declare Function DrawTextEx Lib "user32" Alias "DrawTextExW" (ByVal hDC As Long, ByVal lpsz As Long, ByVal N As Long, lpRect As RECT, ByVal un As Long, lpDrawTextParams As DRAWTEXTPARAMS) As Long

    Posting a link to a program in a zip file from an unknown site is not a good idea. It really isn't a good idea for somebody to run such a thing. If you have a working example, remove any compiled code and attach the remainder to a post.
    My usual boring signature: Nothing
