Real Time Data Binding (WinForms)

Hello

I have been asked to build a very simple application which enables multiple users to add records to a central database, this bit is easy. I have a SQL Database, a Web Service and a client interface of a single form. The web service is called upon when adding the records to the database.

The bit I am having an issue with is enabling the datasource in the grid as real time.

Meaning, the grid automatically updates for users 1 when user 11 adds a record without having to hut a refresh button or a setting a timer which refreshes the data at set intervals.

Can anyone guide me on how to achieve this 'Real Time Data Source' solution? (is that what it is called?)

Many thanks

Keeka

that is not possible, unless all "updates" push the update to all the "clients" connected to that same data.

which means, all the clients have to "listen" to a server part (for example, using the tcp communication).
