|Is there a sample project anywhere that illustrates how to tie a group of individual text boxes laid out on a form to a virtual record / recordset? I'd like to see that.
Not every application is amenable to a grid control.
Never mind, found one way to do it. I have a history with Embarcadero Delphi, I just can't believe how much code it takes to do this:
textBox1.DataBindings.Add("Text", yourVirtualRecord, "your property name", false, DataSourceUpdateMode.OnPropertyChanged, "");
This gives live connection that auto updates. yourVirtualRecord must be part of a Virtual Recordset that has successfully loaded from your database connection.
