The only time I've used CtrlGrid is when experimenting with problems
reported on this list - so I'm not really in a position to write
anything much about it. What I know about control replication issues
comes from trying to write my own grid component a long time ago.

I use a different interface that avoids the problems...

On the left side of the form/tab-page I have a read-only IB_Grid
showing only the fields needed to identify each row - there is an
updatebar above the grid to allow mouse insert/delete and hotkeys
defined for keyboard use. On the right side of the form/tab-page
I place the actual controls for entering record data.

This lets me use any type of control and seems to suit the users
quite well.
