How to Set Default Component Property Values for a Grid
/documentation/pages/HowTo/Grid/Setting Default Property Values.xml
The default values for new Grid components can be configured. This is particularly useful if you are developing many Grid components that need to suppport multiple languages or are always making the same set of changes to every new Grid Component.
Create Grid Component From Meta Data File
/documentation/pages/Guides/Workspaces/Web Project Control Panel/create grid from metadata file.xml
Generate a Grid component from a Grid Meta Data File.
How to Import Data from an Excel or Ascii File into a Grid Component
/documentation/pages/HowTo/Grid/Import Excel or Ascii to Grid.xml
Data in an Excel file or comma delimited Ascii file can be imported into a Grid Component based on a table in a database.
Grid Component Capabilities
/documentation/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Grid/Grid Component Capabilities.xml
Web publishing applications only. A grid component displays reads from and writes to your database and displays the data in a web page. The Grid Builder is a genie that you use to create grid components. The HTML Editor allows you to place grid components into A5W pages (an A5W page is a hybrid HTML/Xbasic page that is processed by the Application Server ). Grids have many optional capabilities that you can enable or disable through menus. Many properties of a new grid component have default properties. If you wish, you can set different default property values.
The Grid Component
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/index.xml
Guides on how to use the grid builder, grid properties and features, example pages, and more.
Grid Data Source Menu
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Introducing the Grid Builder/Grid Data Source Menu.xml
The Grid > Data Source Menuprovides two options that select the type of database connection that will be used: .dbf Tables or an SQL database accessed via AlphaDAO (Alpha Data Access Objects). Selecting one or the other will open either the Grid > Query(DBF) menu or the Grid > Query(AlphaDAO) menu.
Grid Component SQL Database Credentials
/documentation/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Grid/Grid Component/Grid Component SQL Database Credentials.xml
By default all users who use a Grid component connect to the SQL database using the same credentials. These credentials are defined in the a5_application.a5i file which is automatically published when your application is published. The a5_application.a5i file defines how each named connection string in your application should be resolved at runtime.
Ordering Lookup Entries - Grid Component
/documentation/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Grid/Ordering Lookup Entries - Grid Component.xml
Often you will want to display a list of values selected from a table. It is often desirable to specifically order these entries, instead of allowing them to display in record order or alphabetically. Here is a technique for solving this problem. This example uses a drop down list box on a dialog component, but the technique works equally well with a list box on a grid component.
Creating a Grid Component - Tutorial
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Introducing the Grid Builder/Tutorials/Creating a Grid Component - Tutorial.xml
Covers a range of topics including selecting a database, creating a grid component, selecting data to use and display in the component, and how to view the component in a browser.
