[IDV #TNI-559375]: Any way to tell IDV to use the "last" time step?

Hi Rich,

This is a little tricky because we the number of times can change. However, in 
a somewhat of a hackish manner  (i.e., a simple, elegant and functional 
solution) I have added a "Reverse Times" flag to the grid data source. This is 
set at the bottom of the Times tab in the data source properties for grids. 
When set you won't see a change to the times list, it will still show the times 
as usual. However, internally what it does is to reverse the times you have 
selected. So, for example, in the field selector or the properties for the data 
source you select the 1st, 3rd and 5th times in the list. What really happens 
is that you will get the last time, the 3rd to last time and the 5th to last 
time in the data.

This will be in tonight's build.
