What are Sheridan Data Widgets 3.0?




Sheridan Data Widgets 3.0 are a collection of six custom controls that can be used to create data-driven applications with Visual Basic. They are:


  • Data Grid: A fully editable bound grid that allows you to edit an entire record set on screen without writing any code.



  • Data Combo: A combo box that can be used to display or edit a field value from one record set while providing a dropdown list of field values from another set.



  • Data DropDown: A grid that can be linked to the cells in the Data Grid for use as a value selection list.



  • Data List: A list box that can be used to display or edit multiple field values from one record set.



  • Data TreeView: A tree view that can be used to display or edit hierarchical data from one record set.



  • Data Label: A label that can be used to display or edit a single field value from one record set.



All these controls support OLE DB and ADO data binding methods, which means they can interact with any database that the data control can use. They also support various features, such as:


  • Print to paper or export to HTML or delimited files.



  • Save and restore layouts at design and run time.



  • Fully integrated masked editing.



  • Full Intellimouse support.



  • Three data modes: Bound, Unbound, and Add Item.

How to Use Sheridan Data Widgets 3.0 in Visual Basic?




Now that you have installed Sheridan Data Widgets 3.0 on your Windows PC, you might be wondering how to use them in your Visual Basic projects. In this section, we will show you how to add the Data Widgets controls to your Visual Basic toolbox and how to use them in a simple example.


How to Add the Data Widgets Controls to Your Visual Basic Toolbox?




To use the Data Widgets controls in your Visual Basic projects, you need to add them to your Visual Basic toolbox first. Here are the steps to do so:


  • Open Visual Basic and create a new project or open an existing one.



  • On the menu bar, click on "Project" and then on "Components". This will open the "Components" dialog box.



  • In the "Components" dialog box, scroll down the list of available controls and find the ones that start with "Sheridan". You should see six controls: SSDataCombo, SSDataGrid, SSDataList, SSDataTree, SSDataLabel, and SSDataDropDown.



  • Select the controls that you want to use in your project and click on "OK". This will add them to your toolbox.



  • You can now drag and drop the Data Widgets controls from your toolbox to your form and resize and position them as you like.



How to Use the Data Widgets Controls in a Simple Example?




To demonstrate how to use the Data Widgets controls in a simple example, we will create a simple application that displays some data from a text file in a Data Grid control and allows editing it. Here are the steps to do so:


  • Create a new Visual Basic project and name it "DataWidgetsExample".



  • Add a Data Grid control (SSDataGrid) to your form and name it "grdData". Resize and position it as you like.



  • Add a Command Button control (CommandButton) to your form and name it "cmdSave". Change its caption to "Save". Resize and position it as you like.



  • Create a text file named "data.txt" in the same folder as your project. Write some data in it using this format: Name,Age,City. For example:



John,25,London


Mary,32,New York


Bob,28,Tokyo


Alice,30,Paris


  • In your code window, declare a global variable of type Recordset (Recordset) and name it "rsData". This variable will hold the data from the text file.



  • In the Form_Load event procedure of your form, write this code:



'Create a new recordset object


Set rsData = New Recordset


'Open the text file as a data source


rsData.Open "data.txt", , adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic


'Set the data source of the grid control to the recordset object


Set grdData.DataSource = rsData


'Adjust the column widths of the grid control


grdData.Columns(0).Width = 1000


grdData.Columns(1).Width = 500


grdData.Columns(2).Width = 1000


  • In the Click event procedure of your command button, write this code:



'Update the recordset object with any changes made in the grid control


rsData.Update


'Save the recordset object back to the text file


rsData.Save "data.txt", adPersistText


'Message box to confirm saving


MsgBox "Data saved successfully."


  • Run your project and test it. You should see something like this:



You can edit any cell in the grid control by double-clicking on it. You can also add or delete rows using the buttons at the bottom of the grid control. When you click on the "Save" button, any changes you made will be saved back to the text file.
