janus gridex 2000 

  A better Outlook for your database applications...  

Microsoft's Outlook introduced a novel user interface for viewing and manipulating data. Janus Systems has captured the essence of this paradigm in the Janus GridEX and Janus ButtonBar the first on a series of ActiveX control designed for Visual Basic.

The Janus GridEX 2000 is a 32-bit ActiveX Grid Control, designed to display and manipulate data using an easy and intuitive user interface patterned after Microsoft Outlook.

Janus GridEX 2000, has built-in multilingual sorting capabilities, the columns can be sorted as strings, numbers or dates (even while grouped).

With the unique grouping capability of the control, a user can drag a column header and drop it into the "Group By Box" and the control automatically presents the data grouped by the chosen field.

When a record is added or updated, the control places that record in its proper position based on the current group/sort settings.

Janus GridEX 2000 is a data-aware, fully editable component that hooks directly to databases, by using either Data Access Objects (DAO 3.6) or the new ActiveX Data Objects (ADO 2.x). The control implements its own data binding mechanism in order to perform sophisticated data manipulations. 

The Janus GridEX 2000 also has a powerful unbound mode for managing data in any format without sacrificing any group or sort capabilities.

The programmer can set special format settings (such as font colors and styles) for rows that meet certain criteria, and also individual conditions for groups; in all cases, the control is aware of and adjusts records that meet these custom conditions automatically.

The control also offers an innovative "card view," which provides an easy means of browsing through data.

As part of a limited time offer, you will receive a free copy of Janus ButtonBar 1.6, an ActiveX Control which mimics another important part of the Outlook interface by organizing icons into logical subsets using a sliding-group metaphor.
