Looking for rapid development tool

P: n/a
Hi

I develop database winform apps which consist of several one-many forms.
This is a pretty repetitive task and I wonder if there are tools that can
speed up this generation of one-many forms that anyone has used
successfully? Do tools like Deklarit or LLBGen or some such have any value?

Many Thanks

I don't know about Deklarit, but LLBLGenPro is of great help at
business/data layer.
It won't create the forms out of the box, although you could add that
functionality by yourself (through templates).
You might also consider CodeSmith. It has many free templates and you can,
again, create custom ones.

Have you tried building reports to present the data? Consider that the
ReportViewer control can easily show one to many relationships either in
single or cascading reports, via click-through or other means. If you need
to update a row, it's possible to capture the element click events to launch
forms that can capture user input. I've found this is an innovative way to
cut down on the amount of code you need to present data as well as provide
summary values, data-driven display attributes, aggregations as well as
custom computation of values through expressions. I'll be discussing this
approach in my workshop at Developer Connections next week (on Friday) and
in my session on Reporting at VSLive in December and in my workshop at
DevTeach in Montreal.
