Allows the user to browse among records in a database table by clicking buttons. It consists of First Record, Previous Record, Next Record, and Last Record navigation buttons and a label that displays the Caption property. Built-in events fire when the user clicks any button. Methods allow you to navigate among rows programmatically.
A DataControl is designed to display data using Checkboxes, TextFields and TextAreas, ListBoxes, Labels PopupMenus, and ComboBoxes. You can also create custom classes that are based on any of these classes and use them in conjunction with a DataControl.
Each of these controls (or their subclasses) has two properties that are specific to the DataControl: DataSource and DataField. DataSource accepts a DataControl object and DataField accepts the name of a field in the table to which the DataControl is linked. You set up a database interface by linking a DataControl to a table in a database and then linking each field whose values you wish to display to a Checkbox, TextField or TextArea, ListBox, Label, PopupMenu or ComboBox using the DataField and DataSource properties.
