- Ordering Lookup Entries - Grid Component

However, if you created a new Grid from a Template, the default properties that you set were not honored. They were only honored if you created a blank new grid. Now, the default properties are used even if you use a template. This makes it much easier to customize the Grid builder for developers whose native language is not English.
