This demonstration database shows various methods of using the Flex Grid 
ActiveX control in an Access 2000 (or later) database. Flex Grid controls can be
used to show data from a table or query on a form in a format which is not possible
using standard Access controls.

For example, you can show a group of records where each field background or text
colour can be different for each record. You can shows 'continuous' records with
the field heights altered to match the amount of text in the field. You can show
a switchboard form using a Flex Grid control to give access to dozens of forms or
reports with just two button clicks. You can use the Flex Grid to show a simple bar
graph and so on.

You can change the layout of the Flex Grid to suit the type of data being displayed.
You can set the font, font sizes, field alignment, etc for each individual field as
well as displaying graphic images in any cell.

The demo program shows all these techniques as well as a method to edit text in a Flex Grid cell.
Two MS Word documents are also included which give more information and full
installation instructions.

Just unzip the Flex Grid Demo.zip file to a folder on your hard drive and then
read the enclosed documents.
