I wonder if there is someone in the community who has used this control easy grid activex contol (www.share2.com).
If yes, I am struggling to load data into this grid by lack of clear documentation of parameters expected, etc...
I am using MySQL or SQL server table.
Any help will be appreciated.

There's been no work done on that control since 2001, so I'd be quite hesitant to stake my project on that control.

Are you working in .NET? If so, the native DataGridView is usually a good starting point. Unless you need advanced customization, it's normally up to most tasks.

I use DevExpress's XtraGrid: www.devexpress.com. It's pricey, but it's definitely a first rate control suite.
