Thanks Jason, I'll take a look when I have time. Totally busted right now.
I wonder how hard it would be to convert the Borland TDatasource version of
the component to work with the native IB_ datasources.

I would like to get this control working better but Windows just makes it
tough to get predictable event sequences for painting, etc. I recommend
don't give up and actually try tweaking the sources to some extent. The
control isn't extreemely difficult to work with. You just may actually
provide some perspective I'm lacking on and resolve some of the niggles.

If you don't need editing, you may want to take a look at the TIB_Ledger
