No checkbox in nested dataregion
jax asked:
I'm not sure if this is a bug but here's the symptom:
1) I have a nested dataregion.  Its default mode is "grid". 
2) when I browse my view I notice there are no "checkboxes" next to the records in that region.
3) if I "Insert" a new record into that nested dataregion, then "cancel" (or hit the Grid button) the grid view *does* have a checkbox.

This seems odd since the "Delete" button is always there, just no checkboxes.

Things that make you go "Hmmmmmm..."

  what's the parent dataregion's mode at step 1? If update or insert: HTML does not allow you to nest forms. If the parent dataregion is a mode that requires a form, there is no way to display checkboxes in a form nested within it.

Perhaps we could should be smart enough to not display the "Delete" button in this case. I can post some code to give you this functionality if you'd like...

  Yup, the parent region was in update mode.  Thanks!  You rock, doug!
