[REBOL] Re: [grid]

Hi Ashley, AT> Agreed, the 'text-list approach is QAD but works well for smaller sets. I AT> adapted your grid style and it uses very little memory over that required AT> to load the table, except that right-justification of a column is not so AT> easy and I'd like every column to be as wide as the widest value in it AT> (whether currently displayed or not). ;) All the more reason to do windowing. There's a reason Google only displays a few results at a time; people can only make sense of so much information at once. Nobody will be able to browse through 1,000,000 records, so see if you can whittle down the data to a manageable amount. Even if you retrieve all the data, just calculate the display based on a window into it and recalculate as necessary. Efficiency like this is often a lot more work, so you have to prioritize it against other needs as well of course. Good luck! -- Gregg
