BBjDataAwareGrid

Description

The BBjDataAwareGrid object provides methods to manipulate the data-aware grid control in BBj. The BBjDataAwareGrid extends the BBjGrid object and therefore implements all the methods in BBjGrid.

Implemented Interfaces

Focusable, MouseWheelEnabled, TabTraversable, Validateable

Creation

BBjAPI > BBjSysGui > BBjWindow > BBjDataWareGrid

A BBjDataAwareGrid object is created through the following BBjWindow methods:
