Wow, thanks Trevor for the R & D!

That makes for "pretty plain" Datagrid2 forms. I understand the reasons behind it. But making "gorgeous" UI that scrolls then is not possible.

 I am developing youTube library that use Datagrid. So it seems we will have to sacrifice scrolling to get a shadow on the forms, or a gradient on the graphic behind each form. 


get it scrolling smoothly but, it will have a "utilitarian" look and feel. But users are looking navigation,  not eye-candy. But our design team will be "pained" by such a choice. I guess we can dress up to the card and static layers..

We shall see....

 I will pursue "dictionary" one the other thread. (R.H. "Dictionary")

    I just did a quick test involving going through the property inspector for
    a group and changing properties. I have confirmed that the following
    properties will cause a group that is assigned the layerMode of "container"
    to have an effective layerMode of  "static":
    - opaque
    - showBorder
    - showname
    - hscrollbar/vscrollbar
    - dropShadow, innderShadow, outerGlow, innerGlow, and colorOverlay
    In addition, the acceleratedRendering of the stack must be true or the
    group will always have an effective layermode of "static".
