Introducing the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge Visual Designer : Concepts : UI controls : Data-bound controls
Data-bound controls
Certain visual controls are capable of displaying data retrieved from a database connected to the application. The Visual Designer simplifies the task of binding the data to the control.
Three objects are required:
*A data-displaying visual control
*A ProBindingSource non-visual control
*An ABL data object (query, temp table, or ProDataSet)
The data object is defined with standard ABL constructs; no special coding is necessary.
