Gustavo Eydelsteyn Take the Straight Line: Get the Best Tips Right Here
Gustavo Eydelsteyn, Co-founder

We've all been in a situation at some point where we needed an answer, but just couldn't seem to find it right when we needed it. It can be frustrating, but what if you knew of a place that housed thousands of solutions to your very questions? That was one of the founding visions of ComponentOne and I am thrilled to be able to share it with you.
We constantly engage with clients around the world and have been for over 22 years which has permitted us to gather common questions and deliver tips, tricks, and best practices you won't find anywhere else. Beginning this month, we will be highlighting best practices to questions, just like yours by people just like you in our Tech Tips section of Studio Tech Connection.

For example, while you may know how to update grid contents using FlexGrid for WinForms, you may be unaware that by setting a single property before the updating begins you can drastically increase performance. Donít miss out on these best practices. This is your direct access, no waiting in line solution to your questions.

Sheela Nath Create a Master-Detail View in Silverlight
Sheela Nath, Technical Writer

One of the most important aspects to consider when displaying data is a way to show how all the data interrelates. While a massive grid layout showing one record after another might help visualize all the data, it does nothing in regards to explaining why the data exists or what it can be used for.
One way to help organize data is by setting up a Master-Detail relationship. In a Master-Detail relationship all the detail objects displayed are related to the selected master object. In this article we are going to walk through just how easy it is to use ComponentOne DataGrid™ for Silverlight to add a Master-Detail view to your Silverlight application. Read the full article.

 Tech Tips
Tech Tip Use the Redraw Property to Increase Performance
Every time a cell value is changed, or rows and columns are added or removed from the grid, some calculations are performed in order to recalculate the grid layout and update the display. You can increase performance significantly by setting the Redraw property to False before you start updating the grid contents, and setting it back to True when the changes are complete.
Tech Tip Use One Click for All Menu and Toolbar Items
Minimize the number of click events in your code when using ComponentOne Menus and Toolbars for WinForms by taking advantage of C1CommandHolder's CommandClick event. This one event can handle clicks for all menu and toolbar items on your form.
