Lew, I don't touch the bindcontrols property, its set to the default.the table or cursor needs to be opened before you programmatically assign the objects to the grid.
i use this at the start of my class to setup the grid grid1.RecordSource= alias1 grid1.ColumnCount=0 && insure that no columns *i can also assign others if i want, or set the colors in the grid object.i use a class: grid1.AddObject(ccol,'GRID_COL') to add a column to the grid, where ccol is the name of the column
*heres an abstract of code that i use to build each column With grid1.&ccol .header1.Caption= Alltrim(GridS.Heading) .Width = GridS.WidthIf .edit_mode=0 And GridS.col_type<>'check' &&cant do this for check boxes
*for readonly fields except checkboxes .ControlSource = "' '+ALLTRIM("+Alltrim(GridS.cs)+")"*assigned the quote above as is -- is required for my concept to work. this also makes it readonly
Else .ControlSource = Alltrim(GridS.cs) Endif endwith hopefully that will get you started. Lew wrote:
Hi Jay:Started playing with table driven grids. Things went ok until I started with multiple use's for the same table, set filters, etc... until I discovered setting bindcontrols to .f. while loading the col definitions. When the entire form is good to go, setting bindcontrols .t. seems to work. Any idea what up with this? -Lew
