Remote Data Accessibility and Data Binding
In Visual C++ version 4.2 and later, MFC provides a means to bind simple and complex data controls to any ActiveX data source control. The new CWnd member functions GetDSCCursor, BindDefaultProperty, and BindProperty provide this functionality.
When you bind the RemoteData Control to a remote database, you can use Remote Data Objects (RDO) to manipulate the RemoteData Control programmatically. When you insert one of these controls into your project, Visual C++ automatically creates the C++ class framework for manipulating them with RDO.
Note If you are a Visual Basic user, you are accustomed to using the Data source control to bind controls to local databases. In Visual C++, you use the RemoteData Control, instead. The RemoteData Control provides the capability to bind controls to local databases as well as to remote databases.
