Data Grid Question

Hi again Mike,

Yes, I am using the Table format and nothing happens when I click on the + at 
the bottom of the column part of the property inspector. Here's something else 
that's interesting. When the script reaches either
set dgText of grp "CS Grid" to data1
or
set the dgText of grp "CS Grid" to data1
then dgText becomes a custom property in the grid with data1 going into that 
property instead of populating the grid.

What am I doing wrong?

I'm thinking I need to uninstall livecode completely and re install it. There 
seems to be a problem with the underlying program. How do I do the uninstall?

Hmm. You are using a datagrid in table format right?  Not form?  If you are
using the form and have set up your own datagrid template, then you can
most likely just use the behavior script of the form do do what you need.
(if this is the case, let me know and I'll figure out script modifications
to make it work)

If its the standard table type and you are on the columns pane of the
property inspector, and have the column in question selected, then I don't
know what the problem might be.  You should be able to set up a custom
column template (the plus button) and then modify its script.  Since you're
not able to do so then i'm not sure how to fix it.  If you don't mind
sharing the stack I (and others) could take a look at it and maybe figure
out whats up. Of course if its your installation that is acting up and not
something askew with the stack itself not sure how much help I could be
that way either.

I'd be willing to take a shot though if you want to send it.
