Straight From FAQ ...... which we are editing at present

Too Much data for a grid

You could try and use an edit box in the grid with vertical scroll bars, instead of the text box, but the following would be a better method.

I would recommend that only the data, which makes up the index, is presented in the grid and that the grid takes up less than 30% of width of the parent form.Add a container or pageframes (1 or more pages) in the remaining 70% on the right and present the data for the record vertically therein.

Or place the grid on page 1 of a pageframe and the balance of the data grouped logically on other pages.

A2: I like the above suggestion. If there is a lot of information it can be grouped together on sepetrate pageframes as does not need to be seen all the time, and allow the user to select what is required.

One can use a treelist instead of a grid with several containers and pageframes.
In the few screens that I have a grid, I place the grid at the top or bottom of the screen depending on what the information that it displays is like anbd the pageframes above or below.
