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.

- 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.
