I was asked to create a read only user interface to an old database where I'll need to display the data across multiple tab pages and a couple of hundred text boxes. Ordinarily it's not a big deal to use the binding source and connect the boxes to the tables but I lost count around 200. I poked around a little bit with creating all the boxes at run time looping through the columns to create them (and bind them) but I didn't care for the layout and it became more of a hassle. Now I have this project with even more boxes to bind to datatables and I'm looking at dozens of hours. Ok, maybe a day, but I still wonder if there's a more efficient way?
I'm using VB.net and Visual Studio 2017
Thanks for any thoughts
