DataGrid Stuff

At start the Data Grid object is not the easiest thing to understand. You
have to do effort to use it, but it's worth the trouble.
The object is powerful, flexible and well design.

I'm trying to help a little with DataGrid manipulation by designing the Data
Grid helper tool.
For example, this picture is a part of the DGH. It's a Data Grid I'm using
for displaying all available properties of a Data Grid. ...

In the Data Grid template I have buttons to do action, popup menus, a button
for data tree, etc
