ProfilerQuery 4.0.2

I just realized that the new datagrid doesn't handle multiline data automatically, so I had to calculate row height "manually".

As usual my own experiences are what drives changes to my programs. I was using ProfilerQuery to try to suss out profiles that might need updating (in this case profiles that were missing both make-up artist and costume designer). I would use "View contribution notes" from the context menu in ProfilerQuery to see when cast/crew additions had been made and by whom.

It occurred to me that this would be a lot easier if the contribution notes were opened in ContribLookup rather than opening a new instance of my standard internet browser every time. So I added a check to see if ContribLookup was running, and if it was I would copy the ID to the clipboard and change focus to ContribLookup, thereby causing ContribLookup to find the contribution notes.

Fine so far. But I found it annoying that ContribLookup would have to search through several localities when ProfilerQuery actually knew what the locality was. So I wantedto send the full ID including locality suffix, for example 1234567890123.11, to ContribLookup. But ContribLookup wasn't designed to handle that. It hadn't been necessary before.

The solution was to update ContribLookup as well. So in version 2.4.0 it can handle locality suffix.

Final hurdle: I hate to create incompatabilities. So what if someone runs the new ProfilerQuery and the old ContribLookup. Solution: ProfilerQuery checks what version of ContribLookup that is running, and if it is the old version ProfilerQuery only copies the ID w/o suffix to the clipboard.

Hopefully though those who would use this functionality will update both programs:
ProfilerOuery 4.1.0 and ContribLookup 2.4.0.

ProfilerQuery 4.1.1

"Go to parent profile" in the context menu did not work correctly with the new datagrid. Fixed.
