Hey all,

I have downloaded the ComponentOne free controls that come with Visual Studio .NET and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the difference between the True DBGRID and the FlexGrid .NET is?

They both seem very similar to me and seem to do the same thing so I was wondering if anyone has had experience with both and could tell me what the difference is and which I should use for what type of situations?

Thanks :)

the flexgrid is normally used for grid input ad with less data.

the true dbgrid is for a large amount of data and mainly display.

Oh ok,

So if I had a 2 page worksheet for people to fill out and I wanted to turn that into a program which version of the control would you suggest I use?

Basically the worksheet is just like a spreadsheet...it has 7 columns with headings and under each column is 20 rows for the user to fill out information for.  There is 2 sides to this sheet and each has the same amount of data on it.

The user needs to be able to edit it, save it, open it, print it so which control would you recommend I use for this?

There needs to be a read-only display on one form (which shows all columns & rows in read only) and then an editing form which shows column 1 & either column 2-8 for editing.

Based on what you wrote I'm guessing that you would suggest the flexgrid since there will be a lot of grid input?

Just curious and just wanted to clarify what you meant with the differences.

Thanks :)

Flexgrid is best suited for you.

true dbgrid is more used when bound to database with large amount of data.

You have to know something: These 2 grids were developped by different companies long time ago. Now that these 2 are from ComponentOne, they will have more things in common.

Have a look at the samples on your disk or from the web site.

Oh cool thank you for that.  Now that clears things up a lot for me and makes it a lot more easier to understand. :)
