OpenGrid for Visual Studio & Delphi 2006

vai ai prodotti

OpenGrid supports WinForm development using Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Studio 2003, as well as either Delphi 2005 and Delphi 2006.

 

OpenGrid revolutionizes the concept of a DataGrid by giving you an open canvas where you can embed native and 3rd party controls. OpenGrid automatically handles the repetitive display of your controls giving you a truly free-format display of multiple records. Those who are familiar with the DBCtrlGrid from Delphi will immediately appreciate the flexibility and usefulness of this grid control. The following screenshot shows the result of using an OpenGrid with the native .NET WinForm controls.

 

Unmatched Versatility:

With OpenGrid you can define any layout you want for a record, as well as use almost any .NET control. Embed edit controls, images, checkboxes, labels, buttons, track bars, charts, and even data grids showing dependent tables. OpenGrid supports most .NET controls without requiring any modification or coding. If you wish to embed 3rd party controls such as Developers Express or Infragistics controls, you can simply place and arrange them in the OpenGrid, giving you the most versatile and extendable multi-record control around. In fact, OpenGrid will even paint these controls the way they were meant to be seen for each record in view, instead of just the active control.

 

Open-ended Extendibility:

When other grid products do not support a particular embedded control type, you will need to wait for them to someday enhance their grid. With OpenGrid, you eliminate this dependence as you can just use another 3rd party control today and drop it into the OpenGrid. You will be amazed as you design forms that you never thought possible before, nor will you be limited by a single vendor!

 

Multi-Dimensional:

OpenGrid allows you to display the records vertically or horizontally. It can even display records both vertically and horizontally at the same time. See the screenshot at the top of this document.

 

Truly RAD :

Designing the layout of your record’s display is truly WYSIWIG. Use the IDE’s designer to drag and move your controls to their desired location, bind the controls, and you’re done! You’ll be up and running in no time as customizing OpenGrid’s layout is intuitive and straightforward.

 

Master/Detail display: Display master and detail information for each record in the grid. For instance, you can use a DataGrid control to display the details for a single record, and have the DataGrid appear for all the other records with their detail information. See the screenshot below which shows the remarkable versatility of the OpenGrid. No coding is required.

 

 

Advantages of OpenGrid over a tabular grid:

There are significant advantages of using OpenGrid over using a standard grid to present and edit the data records. The DataGrid is very limited in the number of fields it can simultaneously display, as fields are concatenated to the right of the previous column and may not be in the visible range. The user will have a difficult time seeing all the relevant data without being forced to scroll the data into view. The OpenGrid allows you ample screen real estate to present the data. You are not limited to a single row but instead have an entire rectangular region to arrange your controls. In addition, the OpenGrid has an open architecture for embedding components so that you can seamlessly integrate with other 3rd party controls.

 

The alternative to editing with a DataGrid is to edit with edit controls. A regular form containing binded edit controls is limited in that it can only display 1 record at a time. OpenGrid allows you to define a record layout as in a form, but it repeats the same display for each record.
