UI performance and large data set in Table Object

Are you using a table object, or a regular scrolling field with the  
hGrid and vGrid properties turned on? The former is an emulated  
control which may slow down significantly, while the latter should be  
significantly faster.

In the past, I've managed to put data on the order of 20 columns /  
100,000 rows into regular fields. I don't recall how snappy things  
were, but I don't remember having problems.
