LayoutGridFreeStyleGridIcon Introduction

This page the generic features of Grid nodes. These nodes are used in web panels created with K2BSDDesigner to include GeneXus grids in them.

Grid nodes are among the most complex nodes used in K2BSDDesigner. This occurs mainly because there are many ways the grid can obtain its data. Currently, five types of grids are available:

  1. Grids with base table
  2. Grids with an inferred for each
  3. Grids based on data providers
  4. Grids with no base table
  5. Grids based on SDT's

In the following sections, generic properties referring to all five types will be explained. To see details regarding one of the types shown above, please go to the specific page.
