Web Grid Geographical Search
/documentation/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Grid/Web Grid/Web Grid Geographical Search.xml
You can use a map control in the Search Part of a Grid to enter points for a polygon search or to specify the center point and radius for a radius search. To use a geographic search, your SQL database must support geography types, and your grid must be based on a query that includes a geography field. You need to include the geography field in your search part, and set its control to a map.

Steps for locating the Grid Builder in Alpha Anywhere:

If you are using a tab or an accordion container for your master template, the Grid pane label property will let you define the text that fits in the Grid panes title bar or tab. As with the Search pane label, you can modify the Grid pane label directly using HTML.

Grid Update Settings Menu
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Introducing the Grid Builder/Grid Update Settings Menu.xml
The Grid > Update Settingsmenu only appears if the grid is updateable. This is where you control user delete, update, and insert operations. There are quite a number of security permissions that can be set in the update menu. These will allow certain users to edit, add, and delete records while restricting the ability of other users to do so. See the Setting Update Properties page as well as the Controlling Record Updatepage for more information about Update Settings.
