WinForms DataEntry Overview

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.
