ActiveReports - Data Binding in .NET Reporting

July 12, 2018

Data binding is the process that connects an application user interface (UI) to a data object. If the binding has the correct settings and the data provides the proper notifications, when the data changes its value, the elements that are bound to the data will automatically display changes.

Data binding in ActiveReports is relatively straightforward. In this article and video, we’ll cover how to use a stored procedure as a dataset as well as binding to a generic SQL data table. We’re going to show data binding using the End User Designer. The end user designer can be launched by going to start, GrapeCity, select -- ActiveReports 12 designer.
