How to add a custom HTML form for user to input data in Grid app? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I've created a Windows app by using Grid app template. The data in the Grid app is displayed from a .txt file.

    Now I want to add a custom HTML form for user to key in some data to store in SQL Server DB.

    How do I add or modify my app to add the HTML form? Please advice.

    Thank you!

  • Hi Mike

    If my understanding is correct, you are reading the data from a txt file locally, and now you want to save and read the data to/from a remote SQL database.

    Normally the suggestion is to create a Windows Runtime Component by C# and then you will be able to use it in Javascript. In your custom HTML form, you could use javascript call a DB connection, and store the data in SQL server side.

    This link is the example for you: https://github.com/doo/SQLite3-WinRT. By using this library, you will be able to communite with a SQLite database. If my understanding is correct, this will help you for your issue.
