Hello all,

In the AdoRecordsetView project I added the __EGBS_NO_HIDE_SELECTION option to the SiwModifyStyle() call in ChildView.cpp.
However, while switching to a different window, the cell being selected in the grid loses its focus despite the parameter above.
Is there another flag (or combination of flags) I should have specified to indicate the cell currently selected even if the focus is in a different window?
Please note, if I switch back to the AdoRecordsetView executable, the selected cell is displayed correctly.

I appreciate your help, thank you,

Thank you for reporting this issue. To fix it, please update source code for the following two methods:

COLORREF CExtScrollItemWnd::OnSiwGetReadOnlyBackgroundColor() const
    ASSERT_VALID( this );
    return COLORREF(-1L);

COLORREF CExtPropertyGridWnd::OnSiwGetReadOnlyTextColor() const
    return OnSiwGetSysColor( COLOR_WINDOW );

It worked. Thank you very much.
