  • Multi-Column Sorting

    New TitlesResize event gets triggered when end-user resizes a grid column or row by dragging with the mouse.
  • TListRowDefs object
    TList 8 provides a new TListRowDef object for additional object-oriented control over formatting of data within grid objects.
  • Cell offset
    TList 8 provides support for specifying LeftMargin, RightMargin, TopMargin and BottomMargin properties for each column or individual grid cell.
  • Smooth Scrolling
    Unlike most Lists, Tree’s, Grids, and unlike previous editions of TList itself, all of which scroll only by whole rows and therefore never provide access to the complete content of a data cell which is taller than the control itself ( such as a large picture or very long memo ), TList 8 provides support for scrolling in either a row-by-row manner or in a smooth pixel based manner. Moreover TList 8 can be set to automatically recognize tall cells and intelligently adjust the scrolling mechanism in response to the height of the data currently in view.
  • Enhanced Control over Scrolling
    TList 8 provides increased control over the scrolling and scrollbar positioning.
  • Enhanced ToolTips support
    Custom tooltips for each grid cell plus enhanced tool tip styles and events
  • Non-Scrolling Columns
    Columns may be frozen on the left while allowing remaining columns to horizontally scroll
