It would be usefull if the Formula Engine could handle string as well as numeric expressions. In this way you could use the formula engine to morph string data for display in the grid cells. I currently use my own custom feature to decrypt data before it is displayed to the client. Secondly it would be useful if the navigation bar were extensible so you could add your own buttons to the bar for common actions like import/export or other functions that apply to all the data in the grid.

The 3.0 formula engine does allow you to do some string manipulation. It has functions like Right, Left, Concatenate and the & operator for binary concatenations.
We currently have no plans to extend the RecordNavigationBar, but the classes involved are not sealed. So you could have your own derived classes that have additional buttons. It would take some time to look at the existing classes in that control and see how they work together, and how you could add the functionailty you want to see.
