Lesson 26 Managing Database with DataGrid Control

In the previous lesson, we use textboxes or labels to display data by connecting them to a database via Microsoft ADO data Control 6.0. The textbox is not the only control that can display data from a database, many other controls in Visual Basic can display data. One of them is the DataGrid control. DataGrid control can be used to display the entire table of a recordset of a database. It allows users to view and edit data.

DataGrid control is not the default item in the Visual Basic control toolbox, you have to add it from the VB6 components. To add the DataGrid control, click on the Project on the menu bar and select components to access the dialog box that displays all the available VB6 components, as shown in the diagram below. Select Microsoft DataGrid Control 6.0 by clicking the checkbox beside this item. Before you exit the dialog box, you also need to select the Microsoft ADO data control so that you are able to access the database. Last, click on the OK button to exit the dialog box. Now you should be able to see that the DataGrid control and the ADO data control are added to the toolbox. The next step is to drag the DataGrid control and the ADO data control into the form.

To learn the details of using DataGrid control, we suggest you obtain a copy of Visual Basic 6 Made Easy.
