Hi All,

Am trying to bind more data to matrix, its getting late and required more time.


if there is 1000 records to bind, i will take 5 minutes time.

My code as bellow.

  If rsGetSalGenDetailswoCategory.RecordCount > 0 Then

  oMatrix.Columns.Item("V_3").Cells.Item(oMatrix.RowCount).Specific.Value = rsGetSalGenDetailswoCategory.Fields.Item("U_CrGlCode").Value

                                    oMatrix.Columns.Item("V_2").Cells.Item(oMatrix.RowCount).Specific.Value = rsGetSalGenDetailswoCategory.Fields.Item("U_CrGlName").Value

                                                                 oMatrix.Columns.Item("V_0").Cells.Item(oMatrix.RowCount).Specific.Value = rsGetSalGenDetailswoCategory.Fields.Item("AB").Value

End If

Please help if any faster solution.

Hi Nandappa,

It's not recommended to fill up the matrix using the UI API.( oMatrix.Columns.Item("V_2").Cells.Item(oMatrix.RowCount).Specific.Value = rsGetSalGenDetailswoCategory.Fields.Item("U_CrGlName").Value)

You should use the datasource that is bound to the matrix. If you are using a DBDataSource or DataTable use the GetValue and SetValue methods to populate the columns.

HI Pedro Magueija,

I tried this



Dim sSQL As String = "SELECT ItemCode,ItemName FROM oitm"


oMatrix = oform.Items.Item("mtx_0").Specific

oMatrix.Columns.Item("col_2").DataBind.Bind("X", "ItemCode")

oMatrix.Columns.Item("col_3").DataBind.Bind("X", "ItemName")


But here what is 'X'.

In my code am getting data with my sql query,

Could you please send the sample code.

Hi Nandappa,

If you are loading from an SQL query, and using an UDO, then it is far easier to use a Grid instead.

For a grid it would be:

DataTable dt = form.DataSources.DataTables.Add("DataTableId");


oGrid.DataTable = dt;

For a matrix:

Form form = b1.Application.Forms.Add(DateTime.Now.Ticks.ToString(), BoFormTypes.ft_Fixed);

var matrix = (Matrix)form.Items.Add("temp", BoFormItemTypes.it_MATRIX).Specific;

DataTable dt = form.DataSources.DataTables.Add("temp");

form.Visible = true;

string sql = @"SELECT CardCode, CardName FROM OCRD";


matrix.Columns.Add("#", BoFormItemTypes.it_EDIT);

matrix.Columns.Add("cardCode", BoFormItemTypes.it_EDIT);

matrix.Columns.Add("cardName", BoFormItemTypes.it_EDIT);

matrix.Columns.Item("cardCode").DataBind.Bind("temp", "CardCode");

matrix.Columns.Item("cardName").DataBind.Bind("temp", "CardName");
