In my last post we built the service and data access layer for our LINQ to SQL N-Tier application. In this post we’ll walk through building a very simple Windows client form that works with our middle-tier.
In my previous posts on LINQ to SQL I showed how to build LINQ to SQL classes and set up the data binding in your Windows applications. If you missed them:
These articles focus on the binding and validation and use a connected model;
In yesterday’s post I showed you how to bind LINQ to SQL classes to a Combobox in order to filter records on a one-to-many form. Today I want to show you how how you can use a Combobox as a lookup list in order to edit values on a record.
In a previous post I showed how to set up related data binding using ComboBoxes against DataSets and a loyal reader asked how this would be done using LINQ and Visual Studio 2008. I assume he meant LINQ to SQL in this case,
Yesterday I posted the first 8 videos of the Visual Basic Forms over Data “How-to” video series on MSDN. These videos are for those who are just starting out with databases and Windows Forms data binding. I plan on continuing the series with more intermediate topics like custom object binding, adding validation and business logic, and how to manage requirements changes.
This how-to video series is dedicated to getting Visual Basic developers productive on areas of data-based Windows Application development. The series starts with the basics of database development with SQL-Server 2005 Express then walks through the details of connecting to and querying databases,
You don’t have to rewrite your Visual Basic 6 applications to take advantage of the .NET framework, you can use .NET right in your VB 6 apps using the Interop Forms Toolkit.
The Interop Forms Toolkit simplifies the process of displaying .NET forms and controls in your VB 6 applications by wrapping your .NET code with COM wrappers automatically for you and allowing you to expose .NET properties,
I’ve been noticing a lot of questions on the forums related to Winforms data binding and the ComboBox and I thought I’d post something up here to help people out. In fact data binding, or what we call “Windows Forms over Data” is a huge,
