Data Mapping Provides Auto Lookup Capabilities for FlexGrid

Data Mapping provides auto lookup capabilities in FlexGrid. For example, you may want to display a customer name instead of his ID, or a color name instead of its RGB value. It’s useful when you have an ID or index field that is unreadable or not user-friendly. You can use data mapping with a readonly column or one that can be edited. FlexGrid handles the mapping for you so the user can select a value from a user-friendly list while the underlying value or key is updated. Data mapping is a common grid feature also referred to as lookup.
