Hi there!

I'm new to SyncFusion and this is a beginner's question (i.e. pretty stupid question).  How can I programmatically add an instance of the Grid control (in other words, Dim Grid1 as New SyncFusion.GridControl )?  I need to do so because I want to use the control inside ActiveReports where the instance is defined as a custom control and must be redefined using code.  Thanks!!!

Hi Michel, 

Thanks for using Syncfusion products. 

You can initialize a grid control using Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridControl constructor, the following code example explains the same. 

‘Declaring a new GridControl object 
Private gridControl1 As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridControl 
'Initializing the GridControl.  
Me.gridControl1 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridControl()  

Please refer the following user guide links for more details. 
Locally installed Samples: {Installed Drive}:\Users\Public\Documents\Syncfusion\Windows\{ES Version}\Grid.Windows\Samples 

Let us know whether this helps also if you need any further assistance on this.
