    Spreadsheet

    Hi,

    Does C# and asp.net have anything similar to a JTable in java. I need to
    bring up a spreadsheet like way of filling in information. The datagrid that
    is available only lets you edit one row at a time and you have to keep
    clicking edit and update. I need something more like a spreadsheet where the
    user can just fill in the values as they go along and then at the end click
    on submit and the changes are made to the database then.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated!

    Since C# is still in Beta, you can bet there are things that are missing.
    If you need spreadsheet capability now, pick one of the third-party control
    suppliers, or a couple, and contact them. Tell them you are interested in
    a spreadsheet control now that will easily upgrade to native .NET later.
    See if any of them are committed to such a beast. Even if they are not,
    you can use an ActiveX control in your .NET application. However, it will
    require some sort of installation to run.

    The other solution, of course, is to write the control yourself. It would
    take some time, but you would learn a lot about writing GUIs in .NET.

    A datagrid ( look in System.Web.Controls) would do nearly all of what
    JTable does and some things
    that JTable does not do.
