I had experienced this same problem in a recent application and the solution
was simple BUT I canot for the life of me recall what I did. I have not
modified any source so it must have been a property setting or a refresh of
some sort. In fact, I think I did a refresh after posting a new record.

HTH at least a little.

I've spent a lot of time with this issue and I have not as yet figured out a
complete fix for the issue. Taking the code as you gave it to me breaks
other aspects and so I am at a stopping point. I will not put your code in
as you gave it to me because is all you essentially did was undo something
that fixes something else.

I suspect I'm going to take a hard look at the whole scrollbar/width aspect
and fix a more root level issue. It very tricky because I am on top of the
TCustomGrid base class and it ties your hands in a number of ways and makes
it hard to predict how things are being handled under the hood.

I'm open to your continued efforts here and will be more motivated by your
continued persistence in solving the entire problem rather than just for
your own particular type of usage.
