So far, we have focused on developing the enterprise framework components related to the MDI Frame. Now we will shift our interest toward the development of modules that will be used to display data to the user, starting with a rich table control.

In this chapter, we will learn how to develop a control that presents data in a grid or spreadsheet-like interface; specifically, we will investigate the following:

  • Creating a flexible table control

  • Changing the table sort order by clicking on a header

  • Working with arrays

  • Converting a data type

  • Saving data to the local operating system

  • Using anonymous procedures

  • Creating popup menus

  • Opening a file on a local machine

  • Interacting with cells in a table
