I think the Grid can be enhanced significantly if it catered for data binding to an SQL datasource.

- a property to bind the data source, say, ConnectionString
- a property to select from a table, say, DataSource or DataTable
- a method to reflect the changes back into the source, say, DataCommit

I tried this and it did not work - any subsequent assignment to the XML property of the APL.Grid empties the existing content.

I would like to be able to

1. first, format cells - font, colour, emphasis etc etc and capture the xml property
2. populate the grid with other xml and then layer the xml created in the first step while still preserving its content.

Objective: the first step designs the look and feel of the grid i.e presentation and the second adds contents. If that were possible, the presentation layer can be bespoke and the content layer can be generated quite effortlessly (and generically) as an XML.
