Lookup Table to select (or multi-select) for edit

P: n/a
I want to write a form control to lookup some tables fields from
database,
let users to select one record (or multi-select more records) under
win-form
environment for fill some fields of parent forms. Is datagrid control
support multi-select features? Is datagrid control support paging
feature to
access tables (because some tables has more than 100000 records!!)?
Has any
best ideas?

Hi,

Yes the datagrid control supports mutiselect. No the
windows forms datagrid does not support paging.

I would limit the data i load from database. I can not see
a user needing 100000 records. If you load it in to a dataset all the data
will be in memory. I would query the database to get the data the user is
looking for.
