DataEntry

RadDataEntry provides an easy way to display and edit arbitrary business objects in a form layout. The built-in editors are generated by default, so that a fully operational CRUD support may be achieved with a single line of code - just binding to the business object or to a collection of objects. In order to further enhance RadDataEntry, it can be used in combination with RadBindingNavigator or any other collection navigation control.

RadDataEntry control generates various editors depending on the type of property that should be editing:

  • RadTextBox for string properties.

  • RadCheckBox for Boolean.

  • RadDateTimePicker for dates.

  • RadDropDownList for enumerations.

  • RadColorBox for Color.

  • PictureBox for Image.

In addition RadDataEntry allows manual setting and customization of editors and their layouts via the standard for windows forms practices. It is highly customizable, allowing the user to modify the default look in easy and intuitive manner.
