DataGrid question...

Hi Bernd

Your modTableField is very impressive.  Reminds me of the work of the late,
great Eric Chatonet (author of many works on Hypercard).  I see only one
slight problem: after I click into a cell a trace of the I beam is left
behind on leaving the cell (this becomes visible on selecting another
row).  I guess this is a LC bug.  If I click away (e.g. on the "examples"
tabbed button) the trace vanishes.  If I click on the column header to sort
and re-sort, the I beam trace is still there in the field in which I
clicked. If I click in the output field that also does not remove the I
beam vestige.

But apart from that visual vestige, in 20 minutes of playing with mTF I was
very impressed.  BTW, in case you have not seen this yourself, this vestige
was visible for me with LC 9.5.1 on Windows 10.

Regards, Bernard
