Hi All,
I am using VFP8 and am using grids to display information to users.

SOME columns I am building in a sort function so that when the column header is clicked the data is ordered appropriately.

I would like to make it obvious to users which columns they can click on to sort and those they cannot.
I have tried backcolour, tooltips but am having no sucess.
I have read some threads which describe quite complex( for my skill level anyway ) solutions Re; tooltips and columns

I have tried some MoveOver MouseEnter MouseLeave methods but again no luck.

I have noticed that when over a column header the mouse pointer is replaced with a down arrow.
If I could stop this default behaviour on the columns that cannot be sorted that would work for me also.

any (simple) advice please.

Thanks
