To create Table-Grid Entry Form

Click on New Form button.

Select Form type as Table-Grid Entry.

Select Table Name from the drop-down. (Drop-down lists all tables from given database details)

Click on Create button.

If you have the composite primary key in your table, then you can change which primary key has to increment.

When an additional primary key is present in the table, that Primary Key field will be considered as a master field for auto-incrementing primary key field and set as dropdown (associate this control with a SQL to load the list in the Dropdown).

Kushal will create the User interface of the Form on the selected Table automatically. Further, you can modify it as per your requirement.

In the Table-Grid Entry form, Kushal takes care of Input Validation, Auto-Incrementing of Primary Key, Data Manipulating, Deleting the Selected Record, Exporting Data to Excel and other Validations / Checks on the Controls (which is added by you).
