Whats the most efficient(in terms of developer time) method of using a grid to add/update/delete/show data. For example, lets say I have a typical table with the following fields DateTime, Varchar, LookupValue, Currency. My object layer is not using strongly typed datasets. We are using Active Record Classes(Fowler) with a service layer interface. The service layer will handle all operations for a given entity in our design. This means doing add/update/etc, while the set based methods are just returning DataSets. In the grid, I would want to set column headers, autosize columns, hide certain columns, use different cell types, have combo cells for lookup values. Am I right in assuming using strongly typed DataSets and binding them to a databound grid would the most effective(in terms of developer time) in accomplishing the above requirements. For the past 6 months, in my existing app since I wasn''t using strongly typed datasets, I have used both databound and non databound syncfusion grids. I was curious how others were using the grids effectively. Cheers, JF
