Enhance Grid View functionality

Having a Grid View that displays quite a few fields is not an issue on a large screen (see attached screenshot 01_large screen.png).

But on a small (laptop) screen you are not able to see all columns anymore (see attached screenshot 02_small screen.png). In this case a user would have to scroll to the right somehow to see the "hidden" columns. To do so, a user currently has to scroll down to the bottom of the Grid View table and use the scrollbar shown there (see attached screenshot 03_horizontal scrollbar.png).

Thus it would be very helpful if the horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of the table would always be visible at the bottom of the browsr window - when necessary due to the screen size (see attached screenshot 04_mockup.png).

In addition it would be helpful to highlight the selected records in a Grid View with a slightly different background color (see attached screenshot 05_highlighting mockup.png). Currently the information which of the rows/records have been selected gets lost when a user has to scroll to right, to display "hidden" columns on a smaller screen.

    Hi Team,

    This will definitely help other OpenPages clients as well. The current design is very limited in the functionality and doesn't even let Administrators customize the width of the columns.
