Part 3 - Programming Notes

As of Data Widgets 3.10, two new OCX files have been distributed: ssdw3bo.ocx and ssdw3ao.ocx. The ssdw3bo.ocx file implements the OLE DB-bound versions of the Grid, Combo, and Dropdown controls. The ssdw3ao.ocx file implements the OLE DB-bound version of the Enhanced Data, Data Option Set, and Data Command Buttons controls. These files are analogous to their ODBC counterparts, ssdw3b32.ocx and ssdw3a32.ocx.

To bind the new OLE DB controls to the new OLE DB data sources available in Visual Studio 6.0, follow the steps outlined in the Visual Basic 6.0 and Visual C++ 6.0 documentation for binding controls.

Please note that the OLE DB-bound versions of the Data Widgets 3.12 controls are not supported in Visual Basic 5.0 nor are they supported in Visual C++ 5.0. In addition, the OLE DB-bound controls will not bind to the Microsoft ADO Data Control in Visual Basic 5.0 or Visual C++ 5.0 because those environments do not have intrinsic binding manager support for OLE DB.

You may notice that the Grid will not reflect the default values set by the back-end for rows created with the AddNew method of the underlying OLE DB/ADO Recordset. This is a limitation of the OLE DB providers that ship with Visual Studio 6.0. When the OLE DB providers are updated to supply this information, Data Widgets will automatically display the default values. In the meantime, if you call the Refresh method off of the ADO Recordset, the Grid will reflect the default values.

Another consequence of the fact that current OLE DB providers do not supply default values is that rows that seem to commit will not be available if you stop and then restart your project. For instance, if you add a new record in a table with two fields (one required and one not required) and you leave the required field blank when you move off the row, the row will appear in the grid but will not be reflected on the back-end. If you enter data manually into the required field, the row will commit as usual.

Support for Internet Explorer 3.x, 4.x, and 5.x (Updated for 3.1)

Unbound mode is now supported under Internet Explorer 5.0 and later.

When using the SSDBGrid in AddItem mode on an HTML page, it is recommended that you do not manipulate the SSDBGrid in the Window_OnLoad event. Use the InitColumnProps event instead.

The Export method will fail when invoked under Internet Explorer because this method writes to a file on the user's system. This violates security protocol and the method has been disabled under Internet Explorer.

The SSDBGrid will not display any of its print error dialogs under Internet Explorer because these dialogs cannot be cancelled by setting the Cancel parameter of the PrintError event to TRUE. Internet Explorer passes a copy of all event parameters, preventing the SSDBGrid from detecting the cancellation. Because the parameters of the event are passed ByVal, any changes made in the event handler are not visible to the control that fired the event. You can easily show your own dialog when you receive this event, however.

The NumberFormat property will have no effect under Internet Explorer. This is a limitation of Internet Explorer, as it does not support an advanced formatting environment similar to that supported by Visual Basic.

Internet Explorer does not fire the LostFocus and GotFocus events for embedded ActiveX controls. Therefore, Data Widgets does not support these events in that environment.

While OLE Drag and Drop works fine (that is, dragging the contents of a text selection from one application supporting OLE Drag and Drop into a SSDBGrid cell, or between SSDBGrid cells), the DragIcon and DragMode properties are not supported by Internet Explorer. This is a limitation of Internet Explorer.

Updated for 3.1- The OLE DB-bound Data Widgets 3.1 controls (i.e.: SSOLEDBGrid) will not bind to the RDS from within Internet Explorer 4.x. IE4 exposes the older ODBC-style binding mechanism. Please continue to use the ODBC-bound Data Widgets 3.1 controls (i.e.: SSDBGrid).

Updated for 3.1- Performing a SaveChanges method call to the RDS will not commit a row that is currently dirty in the grid (currently being changed). You must first commit the row in the Data Widgets Grid by calling SSDBGrid1.Update before calling SaveChanges off of the RDS.

Limitations of the OLE DB Enhanced Data Control

These limitations as described in the ReadMe for Data Widgets 3.11 and earlier have been lifted. Data Widgets 3.12 now fully supports chaptered recordsets.

OLE DB Chapter Limitations

These limitations as described in the ReadMe for Data Widgets 3.11 and earlier have been lifted. Data Widgets 3.12 now fully supports chaptered recordsets.

New OLE DB Bookmark Data Types

Starting with Data Widgets 3.11, if an OLE DB Data Widgets Control is in bound mode, properties, methods and event parameters that contain bookmarks will accept and return variants of type Double. Previously, the Bookmark type was a variant packed with an array of bytes, which was consistent with DAO and ODBC. Starting with Visual Studio 6.0, the Data Environment and ADO Data Control began returning bookmarks as Doubles. The OLE DB versions of the Data Widgets Controls have been updated to be compatible with the Visual Studio 6.0 Data Providers.

New redistributable MFC DLL required by Data Widgets 3.0

Data Widgets 3.01 (or later) requires a new version of mfc42.dll. The new version number is 4.21.7303. You must redistribute this file, or a more recent version, to all of your users when you redistribute Data Widgets 3.01 (or later). Later versions of the MFC DLL, such as the 6.00.8168.0 version installed by Visual C++ 6.0 will work fine for Data Widgets 3.11. There should be no need to distribute the Visual C++ 6.0 version of the MFC DLL even if you are using the newer OLE DB binding controls unless your own application requires you to do so.

Upgrading a project from ODBC Data Widgets 3.x to OLE DB Data Widgets 3.1x

If you want to convert a project using Data Widgets 2.0 bound to the DAO/ODBC Data Control or the ODBC Remote Data Control, follow the steps outlined below for upgrading a project from Data Widgets 2 to Data Widgets 3.1x. Once your project is using Data Widgets 3.1x (ODBC-bound) you can change it to use the OLE DB-bound controls by following the procedure outline below.

1. Open up your VBP file using Windows Notepad or another text editor and add the following lines:

Object={B1C46850-3E6A-11d2-8FEB-00104B9E07A7}#3.0#0; ssdw3ao.ocx
Object={4A4AA691-3E6F-11D2-822F-00104B9E07A1}#3.0#0; ssdw3bo.ocx

This line loads the Data Widgets OLE DB controls into your toolbox.

2. To remove the DAO/ODBC version of the controls from your toolbox, remove the following lines:

Object={8D650146-6025-11d1-BC40-0000C042AEC0}#3.0#0; ssdw3a32.ocx
Object={8D650141-6025-11D1-BC40-0000C042AEC0}#3.0#0; ssdw3b32.ocx

(This step is optional. You are not required to remove the DAO/ODBC versions of the controls.)

3. Save the changes to your VBP file.

4. Again using your text editor, open each Visual Basic form (.FRM file) that uses one of the
DAO/ODBC controls and do the following:

Change the following lines:

Object = "{8D650146-6025-11d1-BC40-0000C042AEC0}#3.0#0"; "ssdw3a32.ocx"
Object = "{8D650141-6025-11D1-BC40-0000C042AEC0}#3.0#0"; "ssdw3b32.ocx"


Object = "{B1C46850-3E6A-11d2-8FEB-00104B9E07A7}#3.0#0"; "ssdw3ao.ocx"
Object = "{4A4AA691-3E6F-11D2-822F-00104B9E07A1}#3.0#0"; "ssdw3bo.ocx"

Then change any lines further down in the FRM file that refer to the DataWidgets DAO/ODBC
controls. For example, if your form contained an Enhanced Data Control, you would change the
following line:

Begin SSDataWidgets_A.SSDBData SSDBData1


Begin SSDataWidgets_A_OLEDB.SSOleDBData SSDBData1

If your form contained a DataGrid control, you would change the following line:

Begin SSDataWidgets_B.SSDBGrid SSDBGrid1


Begin SSDataWidgets_B_OLEDB.SSOleDBGrid SSDBGrid1

4. Save the changes to the .FRM file.

Once you have saved the changes to the FRM file, you can load your project into Visual Basic 6 and bind the Grid/Combo/Dropdown to either a DataEnvironment or an ADO Data Control as per the Visual Studio documentation.

Note that you may receive an error when you first load forms converted in this way. If you check the log file, it will state:

"Property Bindings in SSDBGrid1 could not be set."

All this means is that the OLE DB controls could not be bound to the ODBC DataSource defined in the FRM file. Simply change the DataSource property of the offending controls to their OLE DB equivalents.

Partial-match searches are not supported when bound to the either the RDC or the RDS

When the EDC (Enhanced Data Control) is bound to the Remote Data Control (RDC) from within Visual Basic or when it is bound to the Remote Data Service (RDS) from within Internet Explorer, wildcard searches are not supported. Also, when the EDC is bound to the standard Visual Basic 4.0 and 5.0 Data Control and the RecordsetType property of the Data Control is set to "Table", wildcard searches are not supported.

Hence a search criteria of "*eek" will not successfully locate an item containing "week." However, a search criterion of "wee" will successfully locate records containing "week" in these environments.

Text and Value Properties for a Cell with a Date Mask

Zero's are placed to the left of entered digits in a cell with a date mask if those empty placeholders are prompt characters. If there is no entered digit for the field (month, day, year), all required locations are filled with 0's. Note: This only occurs when PromptInclude is set to True.

Adding Data Widgets to your Apartment-Model User Control in Visual Basic 5.0

The 32-bit Data Widgets OCX files contain duplicate non Apartment-Model thread-safe registry entries for all six controls. These duplicate entries are provided for backward compatibility and do not affect the threading characteristics of Data Widgets in any way. However, the presence of these duplicate entries will prevent the user from adding Data Widgets to an Apartment-Model User Control under Visual Basic 5.0. We have a .reg file available in the Miscellaneous Files page in the Download section of our website,, that easily corrects this incompatibility.

MouseWheel Functionality Not Fully Supported by Windows 95 and Windows 98

Windows NT supports both panning and scrolling. However, Windows 95/98 only supports panning unless you do some extra work involving registering and hooking a special Window Message. A sample project called "MouseWheel" that illustrates how to do this is available in the Product Samples page in the Support section of our website at

Printing Limitations with Specific Printers

There is a known problem with some printer drivers where the tab character used to align the text for the page header or footer will be printed. This seems to be a problem with the printer driver incorrectly interpreting the alignment output specifiers when rendering text.

Upgrading a project from Data Widgets 2.0 to Data Widgets 3.1x

In order to update a project that was saved with Data Widgets 2.0 to use 3.1x, you have to replace the following line(s) in your project's vbp file and all VB5 .frm files that contain Data Widgets 2.0 controls (VB4 .frm files do not contain object references):

Object={D981334D-B212-11CE-AE8C-0000C0B99395}#2.0#0; ssdata32.ocx
Object={BC496AED-9B4E-11CE-A6D5-0000C0BE9395}#2.0#0; ssdatb32.ocx

with these:

Object={8D650146-6025-11D1-BC40-0000C042AEC0}#3.0#0; ssdw3a32.ocx
Object={8D650141-6025-11D1-BC40-0000C042AEC0}#3.0#0; ssdw3b32.ocx

You can either open up your project files and make these changes yourself or you can run the supplied utility. For 16-bit operating systems, run DW2TO316.EXE and for 32-bit operating systems, run DW2TO332.EXE. These files are installed in the Data Widgets directory. They can also be run from the Start menu.

Save/Restore Layout Limitations

The 32-bit version of the Data Widgets 3.x controls may not load grid layouts correctly when those layouts were saved using the 16-bit version of the Data Widgets 3.x controls.
