Hi,

How can i have a minimum height for an autosize height column in PB. When I
insert a new row the column is invisible, until I click on it (if I know
where it is).

Thank you

Hi Magotici;

FWIW: The AutoSize height feature was created for report DataWindows
only.
You should not use this feature (in my experience) for data entry forms.

How about an Add and Modify form? You need to see the entire text and should
be able to modify it. Such a form will be used to add new records as well.

The height should go no smaller than what is defined in the painter.
AutosizeHeight should only make the column bigger, never smaller.

It's a hack, but intialize the column with a value. If it's just a free text
field, use a single space ro some other character.
