    2d grid

    I'm new to using GUI's/graphics in C++ but it's come time to learn. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could use an open source 2d grid that would allow me to lite-up certain cells of the grid.

    Thanks.

    The only one I know of is for C# and is available at CodeGuru. You might check to see if they made it into an ActiveX control so you can use it in any language.

    If on Windows, you don't need anything.
    It's native in Win32 (plenty of controls, OCX or not)

    Albeit 50% dysfunctional right out of the box. Have you ever actually tried to use the grid control in Win32? It is a nightmare.

    I do not remember the name of the C# grid. However if I remember I can check to see what it is on my work dev box.
