Where can I find a commercial control that offers the kind of accessor I want?
Do you know an ActiveX like the MSHFlexGrid (Hierarchical)
that provides programming access like ListView where I
could make reference to the items of the grid with a ListItems and
SubListItem collections and not (like provided by the MSHFlex) have to use the X, Y
coordinates of cells?
I'm not sure if any of the commercial controls such as those from
FarPoint offer the type of accessors you want. However, you could
always provide a wrapper object on top of a grid control to give you
that kind of access. It will require you to aggregate the control, but
that should not be too difficult to do.
