    Displaying a list in columns?

    kreisel

      I have a language database I am developing. One table will have simply two fields, English and ForeignLanguage. I want to be display a list of all the words in the database, so the user can just click/touch the one they want the translation for.

       

      On an iPhone, it makes sense for the words to be a single column list of all the words, maybe alphabatized. That's easy!

       

      But on the iPad, it will be a real waste of space. Is there a way to list the fields in multiple columns, like maybe 3 or 4 across?

       

       

      Header 1Header 2Header 3
      Record 1 EnglishRecord 2 EnglishRecord 3 English

      Record 4 English

      Record 5 EnglishRecord 6 English
      etc....




       

      And then continue to scroll if there are hundreds of words. And it wouldn't really matter to me if they are sequential horizontally or vertically.

       

      Can something like this be done?

       

      Thanks,
