Populate a FlexGrid or Sheridan DataGrid by Bubbler
Posted: 15 Dec 03

This example demonstrates how to Populate a FlexGrid or Sheridan DataGrid:

Public Function LoadRecordSetIntoGrid(ctlGrid As MSFlexGrid, _
   rs As ADODB.Recordset) As Boolean

    Dim sTmp As String
    Dim vArr As Variant
    Dim i As Integer
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    'first we have to clear the grid from previous query results
    '**** remove existing grid rows
    ctlGrid.Rows = 2
    ctlGrid.AddItem ""
    ctlGrid.RemoveItem 1
    If Not rs.EOF And Not rs.BOF Then
        'get the recordset into a string delimiting the fields
        'with a tab character and the records with a semicolon
        'replace nulls with a space
        sTmp = rs.GetString(adClipString, , Chr(9), ";", " ")

        'split the string into an array of individual records
        vArr = Split(sTmp, ";")
        'now add the records to the grid
        For i = 0 To UBound(vArr) - 1
            ctlGrid.AddItem vArr(i)
        'set the return value
        LoadRecordSetIntoGrid = True
        LoadRecordSetIntoGrid = False
        Exit Function
    End If
    'remove empty rows
    If ctlGrid.Rows > 2 Then
        On Error Resume Next 'get over removing a single record
         For i = 1 To ctlGrid.Rows - 1
            If ctlGrid.TextMatrix(i, 1) = "" Then
                ctlGrid.RemoveItem i
                Exit For
            End If
    End If

    Exit Function
    LoadRecordSetIntoGrid = False
End Function
