Indeed IB_Grid you can update mostly just by doing an Invalidate or
Repaint. The other controls are a problem in this situation - they
only update their colors when the state of the dataset changes. This
is not really something that IBO can easily change (due to the way
color is defined to the control itself, the control does not read the
color dynamically from some central location).

I have a similar setup in some of my applications - but the "options"
form in this situation includes such things as which database to
connect etc. So it becomes easy to tell the user that some aspects
will take take effect until the application is restarted.
