dBase-tables - display fields in different ways

Hello!

I have been using dBase and Visual dBase for quite some time. Now I am
moving to Delphi which I use together with dBase-tables. In Visual dBase
5.7 and earlier versions you can display a record in 3 diffent ways. You
change display mode by pressing F2 (or mayby F3, I dont remember rignt
now).
1. The common line display (good for most purposes). The default.
2. Display like a lot of squares connected together, like this:

(record 1)
   field1|field2|field3|field4|field5|field6|field7|
   field8|field9|field10|field11|field12|field13|field14|
   field15|field16|field17|field18|field19|field20|field11|

(record 2)
   field1|field2|field3|field4|field5|field6|field7|
   field8|field9|field10|field11|field12|field13|field14|
   field15|field16|field17|field18|field19|field20|field11|

and so on. This is extremely useful when you fill in data from surveys
whith houndreds of fields. This is what I want to do in Delphi.

3. Each field on a new line:

(record 1)
   field1
   field2
   field3

(record 2)
   field1
   field2
   field3

Also useful in some cases.

Do you have any idea of how to show records in Delphi, I use version 5,
like in 2? I would love to get some help on this.

Best wishes
