Setting TSringGrid.RowCount dynamically

I build a TStringGrid at run-time. Is it okay to reset the RowCount in a loop that adds the rows or should I initialize it to some large number and then reset it when I am finished adding rows? Also, I have to reset the FixedRows property within the loop where the RowCount is being set otherwise, the row is no longer fixed, why is this?

Thanks, Tom.

If you know the number of rows you will add it is more efficient to set the rowcount once. The difference isn't huge though. Otherwise I just increment RowCount as I go.

As for the fixed rows, if the rowcount property is set to the same number of rows as the fixed rows, then the fixed rows no longer become fixed. Personally I think this is a bug in the grid control, but thats the way it is.
