I'vegot a scheme worked out in my head for a way to build a grid control for IWB.  I've done enough playing to know that I should be able to do what I want.

My intent is to make a full featured control.
There will be color options, protected cells/whole grids.
Cells will default to alphanumeric input.
However, user's will be able to specify cell types.
Cell types I have in mind right now are:
-alphanumeric    - mixed case
      -upper case
      -lower case
-alpha only   -mixed case
      -upper case
      -lower case
-numeric      -numbers only -left justified
      -numbers only -right justified
      -money-right justified
      -numbers SSN mask
      -numbers telephone # mask
      -numbers date mask
-button      -??
-combo box   
-font selector
-color selector
-file selector   -open/save

And if I can get all that done I'll tackle functions like adding a group of cells.
After that I guess I'd try to tackle databinding.

Some of the uses I see for the grid are:
a simple spreadsheet
a property form(like the properties window in IWB+)
custom data entry forms

There is no telling at this point as to when it will be done.

I intend to post updates here as I did with the IWB+.
