Linking controls to data
Various UI controls are capable of displaying data retrieved from a database at run time. To enable your OpenEdge GUI for .NET to display such data, you add both a visual data-displaying control and a non-visual binding source control to the visual container. You write application code that defines an ABL data source (a query, temp table, or data set) and sets the handle property of the binding source to the query handle.
