WHIFF provides support for these type of AJAX
capabilities.  Please have a look at the AJAX calculator
tutorial at


for an example with discussion of
some of the built in support for AJAX.
You could probably use this as a starting point for building
your "grid" widget.

I've used WHIFF with jquery and mootools javascript libraries
with much success.

Please let me know what you think.
