Additional Information and Tips
Scrollable Table with Fixed Header
You can use a scrollable dynamic panel to create a scrollable table with a fixed header. Create your table header out of rectangle widgets and place the table widget below them. Then, place the table in a scrollable dynamic panel and shorten the panel so that only a few rows of the table are visible. Scrolling the dynamic panel will give the appearance of scrolling table rows with a fixed header.
