Microsoft’s OLE DB and ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) technologies are fundamental to their Universal Data Access strategy. They define and implement a set of Component Object Model (COM) interfaces that provide applications with uniform access to information.
The Coalesys SureGrid™ Control is a graphical OLE DB data consumer. It gathers and presents information on behalf of applications. It displays and allows the manipulation of data through a collection of columns and rows.
Every aspect of the SureGrid Control is implemented to be lightweight and scalable. Only records needed for display are loaded, allowing it to manage a large amount of data. A built-in data cache stores recently accessed records.
Along with the SureGrid Control, this package also contains three additional data bound controls:
Coalesys Region Control
Presents the user with an image of the United States or Canada, and allows them to choose any state/province with their keyboard or mouse.
Coalesys Gauge Control
An analog-style gauge control that uses animation techniques to render a needle on top of any image, in a flicker-free manner.
Coalesys Meter Control
A numeric meter that displays a single floating-point number in an animated fashion.
