I'm pondering as title suggests... I have a few 25 to 35 char dbforms as well as the cDbTextEdit that will require data entry about 50% of the time so those need not be directly in the cDbCJGrid (maybe) but are same DDO_Server etc... I have it working with child views displayed in dbtabdialog dbtabpage(s) below the Header view. Have a mild color change to the 1st tab page with the grid and the few dbforms and cdbtextedit just below the grid sharing tab page with the grid. It's OK, but best practice thoughts for (users) data entry into loooongish cDbCJGrids is sought? double click grid row to popup entry views? The way I'm headed? Others? Tab page is only because of multiple children, could just as easily be a DbGroup. Thanks...
