I was looking for code to add extra features to the MFC Grid Control so that the
user can format the cells like 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 in order to implement this new cell type into a MFC Grid control:
CInPlaceRichEdit derived from
CRichEditCtrl. This class
allows the user to edit the contents of a cell and change the text attributes (bold, italic, underline).
CGridCellRich derived from
CGridCell. This class draw the
formatted text in the cell, and add the extra formatting features.
Using the new cell is simple. For example, you can call
m_Grid.SetCellType (row,col, RUNTIME_CLASS(CGridCellRich));

Thanks to Chris Maunder for his great MFC Grid Control.
