The AutoData component allows you to use regular non data aware controls such as edit boxes, combos, check box, radio buttons etc on a form and save the data entered into a XML or CSV file. The navigation component allows you to navigate, add, delete and search the data you have saved in the file. It also allows the user to view the data in a table.

Drop some edit boxes, combos, check box and radio buttons onto a form. Add the Autodata component. Hey presto - you need not even link the edit controls to any database tables or columns - the Autodata navigation component automatically links the edit controls to the CSV or XML file you specify and stores the data. Works with the following non data aware controls:
a. All components derived from CustomEdit such as Edit and Memo
b. ComboBox
c. CheckBox
d. Radio Group, Radio Buttons
e. DateTimePicker and MonthCalendar

Compare this with the DB navigation where you have to specify table names, then you have to link DB Edit components to tables and then link the data fields. None of that is needed here, just drop the components into a form, Autodata does the rest.

Please feel free to modify the source code and use it in any manner what so ever, but remember that we do not guarantee anything.
