A Grid Control is useful on your form when dealing with lots of records and gives you the ability to filter down the results displayed. You can take this a step further by selecting an item in the grid once you find it and have it appear in the fields below. Follow the steps below to do this.

  1. In the Form Designer, add a grid to your form by clicking the Grid option on the left side of the form.
  2. On the right side of the top toolbar, click on the ID icon to reveal the ID of each field control.
  3. Click on the Grid, then under the Selected Control Properties window to the right, click on Data Options, and then click on the 3 dots (…). The grid control options window will appear.
  4. Add a column and rename it in the Appearance category of the properties grid.
  5. On the Binding Direction drop down, select ToControl.
  6. On the Bound Control line, type in the ID number of the field you want the grid to send this fields data to.
  7. On the Source Field drop down, select the field that you want the grid populate.
  8. Click Done
  9. Deploy your project to see your changes.
  10. You can bind multiple fields from a single grid or the binding of a single field can then trigger the lookup of info for other fields.
