Restoring Quick Config on a TMS AdvStringGrid

I recently purchased the TMS Component Pack mainly because of the grid capabilities TMS offers over Delphi's native grid. So I started playing around with the grid and flipping things on and off to see how the grid would be affected.

I was playing around with the "Set Look" option of the Quick Config. I tried out every option and settled on Windows XP. Then I clicked the little X in the red box and ... poof it was gone. No more Quick Config. I spent the next three hours trying to figure out how to turn it back on.

Property ShowDesignerHelp determines wether the "Quick Config" is on or off. Geez, I was looking for a property called "QuickConfig"... no wonder I couldn't find it.

Semper Fi,
