I have been using the example given for converting html table in to a ext grid. However, I have quite a large dataset and after this has been converted, the grid doesnt get repainted until I resize the window slightly to force it, is there anyway I can get around this, i have used the grid on smaller datasets and its been fine.

Also I would like to use the load mask although because of the above repaint problem I am not sure whether its not showing because its already got the data and just hasnt repainted the grid yet.

Hope you can help.
