 Tech Tips
Tech Tip FlexGrid for WinForms Tip: Use the WordWrap Property to Show Multiple Line Text in a Cell

When using FlexGrid for WinForms, use the WordWrap and Height properties to show multiple lines of text in a cell. The WordWrap property determines whether the grid should automatically break long strings that contain spaces and display them in multiple lines. Strings that contain hard line breaks (vbCrLf or "\n\r") are always displayed in multiple lines. Multiple line text can be displayed in both fixed and scrollable cells.

Tech Tip GridView for ASP.NET: Use the Page_Init Function to Dynamically Create a GridView
When dynamically creating a GridView for ASP.NET at runtime, create the columns in the Page_Init function rather than the Page_Load function so all built-in interactivity (such as sorting, filtering, paging, column dragging, and so on) remains intact and no additional coding is necessary.
