Using a RichEdit Control in the MFC Grid Control

Environment: VC6, Win9x, NT4, W2K, MFC

Introduction

I was looking for a code to add extra features to the MFC Grid Control so that the user can format the cells as in a spreadsheet program. So, I've created a demo project that shows how to replace the default editing with a Rich Edit Control.

Using the Code

Two new classes are added to implement this new cell type into a MFC Grid control:

  • CInPlaceRichEdit, derived from CRichEditCtrl. This class allows the user to edit the content of a cell and change the text attributes (bold, italic, underline).
  • CGridCellRich, derived from CGridCell. This class draws the formatted text in the cell, and adds the extra formatting features.

Using the new cell is simple. For example, you can call CGridCtrl::SetDefaultCellType like this:

m_Grid.SetCellType (row,col, RUNTIME_CLASS(CGridCellRich));

For more information on how to use a owner cell type, read the Chris Maunder article here.

Thanks

Thanks to Chris Maunder for his great MFC Grid Control.
