Hi Trevor,
Is there any way to force the creation of a new template when you copy  
and paste a datagrid?  I have a "skeleton" datagrid set up with  
various pre-defined custom properties, default column behavior pre- 
set, various other characteristics pre-defined and it would be great  
if I could copy and paste it as the basis for  new datagrids and have  
it create a new template each time.  I'm happy to write code to do  
this if necessary.
