Variable Height Grid Cells

Whilst developing a sample chat application to demonstrate push notification on mobile devices, I thought it would be a nice touch to have the messages displayed in variable height cells with the option to change the background colour to indicate who wrote the message.

Rapide now implements this feature for grid style listboxes. The grid cell height automatically adjusts to the content whilst the background colour is set using a an attribute value in the group view.
