Data Management Controls

The Choose Application UI section provides tutorials on how to emulate popular Microsoft-inspired UI types such as Office, Visual Studio, and Windows Modern. The controls listed below are used inside these shells to work with the main application.

Expanded Data Browsing and Analysis

These controls are used to perform CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update, Delete) on large data sets.

  • Data Grid

    Displays data in a standard tabular or other view format (e.g., banded grid, cards, tiles).

  • Vertical Grid

    Displays data in a tabular form with data fields rendered as rows, and records displayed as columns.

  • Pivot Grid

    Emulates the Pivot Table feature of Microsoft Excel – to present data in a cross-tabular format.

  • Scheduler

  • Map Control

Expanded Document Editors and Viewers

Display and edit DOC, DOCX, RTF, HTML, PDF and other document file types.

  • Rich Text Editor

    Create, load, modify, print, and save rich text documents with this Microsoft Word-inspired word processing control.

  • Spreadsheet

    Create, load, edit, save and print spreadsheet documents with a Microsoft Excel-style look and feel.

  • PDF Viewer

    Display PDF files directly in a WinForms application, without the need to install an external PDF viewer on an end-user's machine.

Expanded Data Entry Forms

  • Editors

    A collection of over 35 data editing tools such as buttons, text boxes, drop-down menus, color pickers, and track bars.
