I’ve been going through the documentation but I haven’t found any paths for this
Is it possible to have multiple grid cell objects embedded into a grid cell object?

Thanks. I’ll look into this sample.

Sorry. Let me try to explain this.

The idea was to have a grid cell capable of containing two or more lines of text and the ability to control the properties of each line (like background color or text color) independently. I said embedding grid cells in order to have access to the properties of each item or line of text, treating each line/item as a grid cell object, but it would actually be more like a CListCtrl in MFC where you can have multiple items.

Let’s say that for a grid that displays student records, you want to have one cell on each row that would contain the courses the student is currently taking. I could then set the height of the row to a value that would allow the user to see at least the first three courses or scroll through the list to view all entries for a particular student record.

Does it make sense?

Unfortunately neither cell splitting nor cell joining is supported at the moment. However it is possible to implement cell joining in particular cases. For instance, a category name in the property grid and a group row in the report grid take up the entire row. Cell joining is based on the CExtGridBaseWnd::OnGbwAdjustRects() virtual method. You can download a sampe that demonstrates how you could use this method.

P.S. We plan to add this feature in one of the next versions.

Please let us know what you mean by embeddable cells exactly?
