DbAltGrid Suite

Did you ever wish of having a grid that lets you display and edit data not as rows and columns, but as records? A grid that would allow you to build unique user interface solutions? We offer you a new approach to the data grid interface. We offer you DbAltGrid components suite.

DbAltGrid is fully compatible with common DBGrid shipped with VCL. TDbAltGrid class is a TCustomDBGrid descendant, as TDBGrid is. By converting to DbAltGrid, you will not get any code conflict or loss in grid functionality.

DbAltGrid adds the following features to the common DBGrid:

DbAltGrid offers a new approach to the problem of controlling data displayed and edited in a grid. DbAltGrid uses separate template components to define such a control. DbAltGrid comes with a standard template set for the most common chores, including displaying and editing numeric, Boolean, date, time, memo, RTF memo, and graphic fields. One of them allows you to indicate a string in cell as a hyperlink. There is also a unique template for displaying child columns summary as RTF text. It's fairly easy to descend new templates from our base TdagTemplate class. This makes DbAltGrid infinitely customizable with templates of your own design!

The template components that we designed for DbAltGrid follow our strict policy of minimal resource usage. You need only one instance of template component of an appropriate kind in your application, irrespective of grids and fields number. When you do not need functionality of any template component, you do not add extra footprint to your executable file.

DbAltGrid Suite version 1.2 is available for Borland Delphi 4, 5 and Borland C++ Builder 4, 5. Please visit http://www.dbaltgrid.com for additional information.
