Abstract: Delphi Client /Server Suite incorporates integrated technologies that help solve your business needs.
Delphi Client / Server Suite 2.0 provides over 15 database
visualization controls so that applications can take on an appealing
and functional design. These controls are easy to use and because
they are object oriented, completely extensible and customizable.
Database controls such as Edits, Memos, and Database Grids can
perform sophisticated Client / Server operations without
requiring code. In addition, all database controls will take
on the extended field attributes defined in the Scaleable Database
Dictionary so that consistent user interface and data validation
can be applied across applications.
New to Delphi Client / Server Suite 2.0 are the Multi-Object Grid,
an enhanced DataGrid with codeless lookup functionality, and enhanced
database list and combo boxes. These controls offer the flexibility
to convey information to the user in a way that corresponds to
the business need and application requirements.
Delphi Client / Server Suite 2.0's new codeless lookups
in the enhanced datagrid.
The DataGrid has also been enhanced to be independent of the Dataset.
This provides the flexibility to use different grids to look
at the same table, query or stored procedure in different ways.
The developer can apply column attributes such as position, fonts,
colors, headers, width, etc. to highlight important information
and to convey different messages about the data.
One language can control all aspects of Client / Server
applications reducing the learning curve of your developers.
By sharing the Delphi data connection from within ReportSmith,
developers are able to control the content, sort order, and grouping
of a report with code.
QuickReport is comprised of eleven components that intuitively
allow the developer to create report bands, attach to Delphi datasets,
and then finally lay out report fields. Printing, Previewing,
and Page Orientation are invoked with simple object methods making
it easy to incorporate reports into your client / server applications.
QuickReport also makes it possible to preview reports in your
application so that you can see the information as it would appear
on paper. This allows you to look at the information in new ways.
This discrete object model provides control of database operations.
The programmer can apply scope to business rules and manage every
aspect of the Client / Server application. Business
rules can be applied at the GUI, the Data Record, the Table, the
Database, the Database Server or any combination of the above
to provide the most modular and flexible application.
