Displaying Image Column in Bound TrueDbgrid

ComponentOne True DBGrid for WinForms is a set of robust, easy-to-use .NET grid controls that allows you to create complex bound and unbound grid applications quickly. When C1TrueDbGrid is bound to a data source which has an image column, neither the image column is shown in the grid nor does it get displayed in the grid designer. This creates a problem for the users who want to show the image column of the DataSource. This blog will help you in creating a bound C1TrueDbgrid displaying Images.

To do this we will use a C1SpellChecker Dictionary Editor called C1DictionaryEditor.exe that allows us to create and maintain dictionary files (.dct).

Save Time with ClearStyle

ComponentOne ClearStyle technology is one of the most unique and useful features of Studio for Silverlight and WPF. ClearStyle makes styling controls very easy. It allows developers to customize a control's appearance (ie colors) without having to hassle with XAML templates and Expression Blend. You can fully customize the style of any ComponentOne control right on the Visual Studio 2010 design surface thanks to ClearStyle. And the best thing is that ClearStyle is baked into the C1 controls, so there's nothing new you have to learn. This blog post explains how you can take advantage of ClearStyle and save time styling your applications.
