im making this project to be compatible with a touch screen..
i was wondering if it is possible to drag up and drag down the grid view of a database? (showgrid)

i mean, a table is shown in a rectangle..
if it cant fit the rectangle, you can mouse wheel scroll p and down the rectangle to view the other records..

wondering how i can make something similar on a touch screen.. like on a smart phone, viewing the contact list, you could finger drag up and down to scroll..

i dont have a touch screen, cant test it, hope someone could try it out..

Hello,

I test the address book sample from dbpro with the grid view.
On my win 7 tablet I can only scroll with the scrollbar and my Stylus pen.
Using finger on the grid select a cell (like a mouse click).

Regards

I tried this on a touch screen till and I couldn't browse the grid by point and dragging a grid. WIndows 7 btw. So yeah, only way would be to drag the scrollbar...
