Re: Highlighting records in XForm

You can get VFP to display a record marker by clicking on a cell in the grid, and the status bar displays the current and eof record numbers. However, the record markers aren't initially displayed, and they don't persist when you switch back and forth between pages. This is a minor annoyance that could be improved upon, as mentioned in xfma0053: improve highlighting of the current record(s). I'm not sure if anything more than VFP's record marker is really called for in this situation, and I'd be inclined to keep the design simple.

I haven't had a chance to take a look at Nick's Grid Highlighter. It might be overkill if the only objective is to indicate the current record, but perhaps it has some other features that would be useful to XFormDBF. It sounds like an interesting tool in general, and it would be nice to see a concise summary of its features with some sample screen shots.
