the e.g. 5 minute default setting, the save button action is fired for them.
I have to admin that with IBO, this is a no brainer since IBO permits this
with next to no noticeable change in the users' interface. all records are
still resting on the currently selected record.
It was impossible to achieve this with IBX components since IBX does not
manage the clientside buffers well. You had to write a lot of code to ensure
all datasets, after commit and re-open, returned to their previous record.
The TGrid, however, never returns to a record mid stream. It always brings
the record back to the top of the grid. very noticeable for users and
