The context of my problem is that I'm writing a database application and I
need to display the results of my queries. My main issue is that my query
results over one thousand result sets (and each result set may potentially
contain tens of thousands of rows).

Obviously, each result set is displayed as a virtual table. But in order to
link the virtual tables, I'm using a sash form. Is there anything that acts
like a sash form but also has a "virtual" property? Another way of looking
at this is that I need to draw a "table of tables" as suggested in the
subject. Each row in the parent table must be resizable. One absolute
requirement is that each result set must be resizable (that is why I
initially used a sashform).

Does anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You could use a virtual Tree (support added in 3.2). The root nodes could
be the result set identifiers and expanding the node could reveal the values
for that result set.
