    Perhaps someone can help me out. I am trying to do something that should be extremely easy with OpenAccess. Complex DataBinding to a textbox. I have not been able to accomplish this with OpenAccess. I have been trying this unsuccessfully for 3-4 weeks. Does anyone know how to do this? If so, could you please post some example code. I am using SQL Server Compact 3.5 and WinForms.

    I can successfully add, update, and delete records from one table in a grid. Nothing else works.

    Also, Telerik support has been terrible. They take many days to give an ambiguous answer. So far they are the worst support I have encountered. I regularly deal with <admin>company name removed</admin> and <admin>company name removed</admin>. Also, I have had great success with <admin>product name removed</admin> as an ORM. This product works very well however crud is painful (lots of code). This is why I was interested in OpenAccess. Telerik advertises it as great for CRUD. I'm hoping someone can help me before I throw this product in the garbage.

    Hi Rene,

    Binding a text box control to a property of an OpenAccess entity is extremely easy and can be configured with the Windows Forms designer. Please, find attached a simple project that demonstrates this. In order to test it do the following:
    1. Run the application
    2. Select a row from the grid
    3. The value from the age column of the selected row should be shown in the text box bellow the grid
    4. Change the value in the text box
    5. Click a row in the grid in order to make the binding persist the value from the text box to the selected object (this is necessary because the binding is configured to persist the value on validation, this behavior is configurable and you can change it if necessary)
    6. Press the save changes button in order to save the changes you made
    7. If you restart the application you should see that the changed value was persisted
    We have sent you similar applications and instructions in the other tickets you have on the topic (which we replied to yesterday).

    Please, reply back in any of the tickets/posts in case you need further instructions.
