based on the sample app "SimpleGrid" I have a question concerning the "Cell Data Aligning" style:

is it possible to customize the style of the outer bottom rows in a way that simulates a splitted window, i.e. scrolling the upper part is possible as usual, while the results are displayed permanently in the static bottom part. The latter should have a cell style similar to the upper part and not being - like the default seems to be - of type CExtGridCellHeader.

Thank you!

But unfortunately after having changed the background color with ...

pCell->BackColorSet(CExtGridCell::__ECS_NORMAL, COLORREF( RGB(250,250,250) ) );
... I got rid of the grid lines seperating the cells. How can I get those back?

It seems this is a bug and it needs to be fixed, but at the moment you can override the CExtGridCell::OnPaintBackground() method and paint the cell background with the currently specified color yourself.

The outer header cells always have a different style than the inner cells. But you can manually change the background color using the CExtGridCell::BackColorSet() method.
