DevExpress VCL Server Mode

Post by GNiessen » Thu 12 Jul 2012 13:16

DevExpress has added a VCL Server Mode to there ExpressQuantumGrid. It works with a dbExpress or ADO DataSource. Any chance it could be made to work with SDAC? I use SDAC for all of my existing data and it works fine. I am not ready to install the new version yet, but would like to use that feature.

All SDAC dataset components have the FetchAll property. If FetchAll is True, all data is fetched on dataset opening. If FetchAll is False, data is fetched to the client only when it is explicitly requested. As we can see, the "Server Mode" DevExpress feature is intended for the same purpose. We do not develop DevExpress, so we do not know in what ways the "Server Mode" feature differs from our functionality. For more information about this feature and its usage, please contact the DevExpress developers.
