About True DBList Pro

Include multi-column list and combo boxes in your applications.

True DBList Pro is a set of two data-aware ActiveX components for providing robust data access, data presentation, and user interface features to your application, enabling it to work like a grid, but with the lightweight requirements of a list. Features include native OLE DB and ADO support, formatted preview and printing, multi-column sorting and searching, export to HTML, and much more.

True DBList Pro is sold as part of ComponentOne Studio Enterprise and the ComponentOne Studio for ActiveX

Powerful and Easy-to-Use Controls: True DBList is based on the same underlying technology as APEX's award-winning True DBGrid Pro, the most robust, versatile, and easy-to-use grid control on the market. Novice programmers can use True DBList to easily implement multicolumn lookup tables with incremental search. Professional developers can take full advantage of the many properties and events of True DBList to create sophisticated and user-friendly database front-end applications.

Supports Bound and Unbound Modes: Using the latest data binding technologies built into Visual Basic, True DBList 6.0 completely manages the database interface, allowing developers to concentrate on important application-specific tasks. True DBList can also be used in unbound mode with a programmer's own data source without binding to the Visual Basic Data control.

Native ADO and OLE DB Support - True DBList Pro contains two OCX controls: an ICursor version (for connecting to the Microsoft Remote Data Control and the VB5 and VB6 intrinsic data controls), and an ODE DB version (for connecting to OLE DB and ADO compatible data sources, such as the ADO data control included in VB6). The two OCXs are functionally identical, differing only in the data access methods supported.

Some of the new features include:

  • Native OLE DB and ADO support
  • Formatted preview and printing
  • Multicolumn sorting and searching with an enhanced XArray object
  • Full support for IE and ActiveX compatible browsers
  • Export to HTML and text files
