TDBGrid extended like Access endless forms
« on: June 04, 2023, 11:22:21 am »
Hi !

I am looking for a way to do data entry in the manner of Access continuous forms.
Now TDBGrid certainly has a function of reading and writing data and presenting it in a table row.
Would it be possible to change/extend this function by displaying the data in a (somehow special) TFrame with database sensitive controls?

Is there a tip where to intervene? Or does a similar component exist somewhere?
Thanks
Lazarus stable, Win32/64

I believe what you're looking for is a DB Control Grid like: https://github.com/ZGabrovski/DBTreeViewAndDBCntrlGrid. It's an installable component and listed in the Online Package Manager.

You can also try IBX control TDBControlGrid. I think it is standard DB control and can work with any TDataSet not only IBX Firebird controls.
