Here is a question for everyone
*The datagrid can get everything, or certain chunks at a time
*When it gets everything (its current setting) you have to wait for everything to load before you can get to the bottom.
*If I enable the paging mechanism (its already there and active) it splits things up and you can jump around by page or letter immediately.
*Some people like one free flowing grid
*Some people like expeditions navigation
Both. The entire list should be able to load (titles) quickly and easily? Then as I scroll around, or select letters to jump around, it should load the images for the most immediate items. Essentially, don't load things unless they are with 1 or 2 scrollable screens of the currently displayed items. Dynamic, little waiting, less transfer required as you only grab what the user is close to. Perhaps more difficult to implement. Am I making any sense here? It's past my bedtime.
