RowPanel mode

Grid can work in special mode when every cell of grid can be placed under each other and can have individual height. Set RowPanel.Active to True value to activate this mode. At design-time you can place cell, vertical and horizontal size. At run-time the possibility to change position of cell depends on the presence dghColumnMove value in OptionsEh property. Possibility to change vertical size of cell depends on RowSizingAllowed property. 

When user change cell width, the grid also changes width of adjoined cells which are placed under or above of changing cell and if the right border of these cells match. By analogy when user changes cell height, grid changes height of cells in left or right part of grid if low borders march. Press and hold Shift key to change the size of only single cell. 

To change cell height of cell you need to move mouse cursor to the low border of the title cell. Mouse cursor will change its image from arrow to two arrows with up and down direction. At this moment press right mouse button and change size. 

To change position of cell you need to press right mouse button on the title cell and drag it to the required place.
