I trap selectionChanged in the datagrid to populate the detail fields on the form. I have an edit bar for creating new, editing existing and deleting existing records. I also have a search object for finding records in a table and displaying them in a datagrid. By setting some constants in the search object's input field it can be used with any table and data grid. Navigation is now accomplished by the user simply arrowing down or up in the data grid, or scrolling down, sorting columns etc., or usign the search bar.

Thanks for this tip. Displaying one record in my stack fills a card. I don’t think that I could adapt a data grid in this case.
