VBA How To

Sorting a programmatically created MSFLEXGRID by double clicking on its header columns by taupirho
Posted: 29 Jun 04

Here's how. Put these in the general declarations section of a module

Private m_iSortCol As Integer
Private m_iSortType As Integer

Private WithEvents msflexgrid2 As MSFlexGrid

Now onto the module itself

Private Sub msflexgrid2_dblclick()
On Error GoTo err_handler
' code in grid's DblClick event enables column sorting

    Dim i As Integer

    ' sort only when a fixed row is clicked
     If msflexgrid2.MouseRow >= msflexgrid2.FixedRows Then
         Exit Sub
     End If

    i = m_iSortCol                           ' save old column
    m_iSortCol = msflexgrid2.MouseCol   ' set new column

    ' increment sort type

    If i <> m_iSortCol Then
        ' if clicking on a new column, start with ascending sort
        m_iSortType = 1
        ' if clicking on the same column, toggle between ascending and descending sort
        m_iSortType = m_iSortType + 1
    If m_iSortType = 3 Then m_iSortType = 1
    End If

    With msflexgrid2
        .Redraw = False
        .Row = 1
        .RowSel = .Rows - 1
        .col = m_iSortCol
        .Sort = m_iSortType
        .Redraw = True
    End With

    Exit Sub

    MsgBox _
    "An unexpected error has been detected" & Chr(13) & _
    "Description is: " & Err.Number & " , " & Err.Description & Chr(13) & _
    "Module is: userform5.msflexgrid2_dblclick" & Chr(13) & _
    "Please note the above details before contacting support", , " Unexpected Error"
    Resume endit

End Sub
