Representing columns data in Visual Basic .Net from a SQL database
Posted on 2009-07-14
I am writing a simple app in Visual Basic 2008 that will pull some data from a SQL database using a rather complex query and represent it in a form. Once this data is retrieved, a complex set of operations are carried out and displayed on another form in a similar tabular format
What is the best element to use to display this data (table, grid, etc). I know I can use datagridview, but i dont need the connection to be "live" - just extraction. Nothing needs to be written back to the database either. I imagine a listbox would work, but I would prefer that the end user have a simplistic excel-like interface.
Any example declarations would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
