Just in case somebody else needs it, here are precompiled packages for

Note that installing it requires Virtual Tree View to be installed already.

From the “How could I have missed this for decades?” department:

The TStringGrid component in Delphi has got two interesting properties which I didn’t know about:

I found out about rows when I searched for code for sorting a StringGrid and found something at SwissDelphiCenter that uses this property. Then I looked it up in the online help and found that there is also a similar property for columns.

Now the question is: Did I really miss this or have I already forgotten? And if the latter, how many times? 😉
