Now on to the real issue.
I've been rewriting the grid style. Petr, you mentioned about scrolling
implemented via changing data rather
than scrolling faces. This is ok if every column is the same width and you
don't want to scroll horizontally.
If you have different column widths then it might be better to use face
scrolling for horizontal scrolling and
data scrolling for vertical changes - this would be appropriate for large
sets of records.
I've been trying to allow different width columns but while I can lay them
out I'm at a loss to know how
to implement the scrolling and column resizing efficiently. Not to forget
resizing of the whole grid.
The grid is proving to be a rather complex thing. Looks like there will need
to be many different grid styles
for different purposes.
