It's been two weeks, and I've even replied to the forum posting further and received no more replies or help with the program I was having. Publicly it looks like they were interested, but in reality? They made no real effort to try and assist with the problem.
Be advised that you can't seem to limit the width of the module by percent, only a fixed amount which is terrible if you're trying to code your site to scale to different screen widths. When you put in a percent it just seems to ignore it and expand the module off the side of the page/screen
What you are seeing in the demo is the MODULE and the settings the MODULE CAN DO.
The Component itself can do Grid or List view of the Layout.
