Can Anyone suggest a way to bind Seridan SSDBGrid (part of Seridan Data Widgets 3) directly to ADODB.Recordset bypassing any data controls, please?

if you want to BIND it, then of course you'll use a data control.

if you don't want to bind it you can use ado.

With MS Dbgrid, it's possible to to bind the grid directly to ado recordset. I was also told that it might be possible to do it with other grids (?using ICursor object or other techniques?). That's what I'm looking for.

Thanks!

You might need to update your control. Not all controls accept ADO recordset as source.

You could go for Sheridan OLEDB grids, instead of Sheridan DB Grids. They support ADO.

Use a DataControl anyway.

Just put it on the form, don't specify anything.
Then link the Sheridan Grid to the datacontrol

In code you can open your ado recordset, with all the possibilities from ado

The last line should be then
  Set DataControl.Recordset = YourADORecordset

This automatically populates the grid ...


This may not be what you want, but it gives you the best of both worlds.

I'm going to explore both options in the next couple of hours, but I'm rather inclined to use a more advanced grid than use a Data control anyway. On the other hand I wonder if it's possible to cast ADO recordset into something like an object exposed by the data control?

Try it out ... works fine with ADO Datacontrol and ADO Sheridan Grid, worked fine with DAO and old style Sheridan.

The Datacontrol is a set of references towards other objects.  The datacontrol.recordset is nothing more than what you would call a "pointer" in C.

You can not link the Recordset of the non-OLEDB Sheridan to a ADO Datacontrol, and visa versa .....  They are not the same.  The normal VB Datacontrol expects a DAO Recordset, you should of course use the ADO Datacontrol if you're using the OLEDB version of Sheridan.
