special customise grid for real world presentations.
Posted on 1998-09-28
It seems that the grids present in VB at times do not help for real situations. Those grids allow to have as many columns in a row(record) to be displayed but the end user
will have to scroll to the right to see some of the columns.
I saw an application that had like a customised version that
allow to have more than one row(record) to be displayed on two screen lines or more. The initial screen displayed just three row(records) and uses a vertical control that looks just like the data control to scroll vertically to enter or
see more records. I think they created a control made up of a frame array and added text boxes,command butons, combo list to it, each frame represented a row. They created an element of the array for each row. Can you give me an idea as to how I can do this?.
This type of controls are of major used in business applicatons such as sales orders, purchase orders, etc.
The number of rows is usually between 1 to 20. Total number
data entry fields maybe 50 to 100.
