I have two books that I purchased, "ADO.NET Step-By-Step" and "Visual Basic
.NET Black Book".
I am reading about data-binding in Windows forms and there is a paragraph
about the CurrencyManager Object which states:
"The CurrencyManager object is fundamental to the Windows Forms
data-binding architecture. Through its properties, methods, and events, the
CurrencyManager object manages the link between a data source and the
controls that display data from the source."
All is good in .NET land so far.
But in the Visual Basic .NET book, it talks about Simple and Complex
data-binding, gives examples, but nothing is said about the CurrencyManager.
Can anyone shed some light on why the CurrencyManager is needed? Why isn't
the binding of the controls enough? Yes, the ADO.NET describes the commands
but no other explanation is given.
Thanks for any input.
