  • Data Binding and Automatic Display

    Spread can automatically retrieve and display information from ActiveX objects (ADO), Data Access Objects (DBO), and Remote Data Objects (RDO). Once the connection has been made, Spread will create the appropriate columns, configure headers, and create the proper cell types. Spread also allows the user to update the database. All this can be done without code, but you are free to customize behavior using the API.

  • Unbound Mode

    While Spread's bound mode is powerful, it is equally effective when loading data from many other sources such as Microsoft Excel, CSV, tab-delimited files, and custom-delimited files.

  • File Export

    Spread will export your data to multiple file formats including Excel, XML, HTML, .SS* (Spread proprietary format), tab-delimited, and comma-delimited.

  • Cell Types and Data Validation

    One of the most powerful features of Spread is the ability to validate data automatically while the user is entering the information or the data is being programmatically assigned. Spread provides twelve cell types that are configured to accept only a certain type of data input, thus eliminating the need for you to manually validate data.

  • Multiple Operation Modes

    Operation modes control how your customers can interact with Spread. For example, you can make Spread read-only or have it act as a list box.
