Hi Markus,

Thanks for the quick reply. OK, that worked fine. I have the same data displayed in other Grids so I will use the GridLinks option as it is not Global.

I'll just add the syntax in this reply for anyone coming along later. This will set the Width to 200 pixels for the Name Field and Center Align the data.

TIB_Grid.GridLinks : TIB_StringList
