Enterable Listboxes

In the previous post, the new Rapide feature of overlay controls was introduced, which allows editable cells in listboxes. These will allow the user to modify the contents of existing rows in a listbox, but what about adding new rows?

A normal Gen listbox does not allow enterable lists unless the listbox only contains one column. To overcome this limitation, a new feature in Rapide called "Auto New Row" has been introduced. When enabled, an additional blank row is automatically added into the listbox. If the user enters data into one or more cells, the row is added to the export group view and a new 'auto row' is added.

In the example below, there are four rows in the group view, with a blank row available for the user to enter data into.
