I assume when you say that sorting the rows would require a re-query, 
you are referring to a new SQL statement with a "ORDER BY" clause.  I 
think what he's asking for is perfectly do-able without a new query.  
Since the rows are stored in a grid control of some sort, then you 
should be able to sort the rows using the function of that grid control 
itself.  This sort would have *no* impact on the actual data, where it 
is in the database, etc.  I would imagine that this sort of this would 
be possible only if the wxWindows control used to display the data 
supported it.  I will do some reasearch and see if it can be done.

Andreas is right about this one.  Ctrl-A (select all text) is only going 
to work if wxWindows supports it.  Really it should be a function of the 
control/widget that the text boxes are natively implemented in 
(comctrl32.dll on win), so I see no reason that it shouldn't work.  
Again, I will do some reasearch and see what I can dig up.
