The number of visible rows on screen does affect the performance of the DataGrid.

With the increasing size of screens, being able to display more visible rows and full screen mode in the 
likes of OSX,  more and more pressure will be placed on the LiveCode scripting engine.

Do you believe that the performance of the LiveCode scripting engine can be improved to achieve a
full screen smooth scrolling DataGrid similar to NSTableView in Xcode/Objective-C?

All the best
