Flex Grid in Smart Device Application in VB .Net

P: n/a
I am new to VB .Net. Is there anything close to what a
flex grid was in VB 6.0? By this I mean being able to
manipulate and add text data that is not in a database. I
would be taking data from a text box and adding it or
updating data that already exists in the grid. Again I am
using VB .Net in a Smart Device application. Any
direction on this would be a great help.

Thanks,
Brian

What do you need to do that the CF Grid won't let you do? You can add to
it, delete rows etc, it has most of the functionality of the standard
desktop grid.

Yes, there's only the DBGrid, but what are you trying to do? You can do a
lot with it, granted, it's not the desktop, but you can still get a lot
done. What problem do you need to solve?

Hi Brian,

Thanks for your post. I agree with William that you can use CF DBGrid for
your Smart Device application. Or you may resort to third-party FlexGrid
controls for mobile devices say, ComponentOne FlexGrid.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to fill the grid based on data entered by the
user, not coming from a database. As answers are entered
in a text box, I will move to the next row and populate
the columns. Again, I am new to .Net, so is there some
white paper with sample code on how to do this with the
DBGrid?

Thanks,
Brian
