Active Query Builder ASP.NET Edition, from, provides web developers with the ultimate tool for SQL query building. This ASP.NET query builder offers an easy-to-use alternative to dealing with SQL queries manually, instead providing users with a full visual query builder with all the components that you need to parse complex SQL queries for further modification and analysis. The .NET Edition offers support for Visual Studio .NET 2005 and 2008 in the Windows.Forms environment. This component will work with .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 and the most recent, 3.5 as well. It is also tested for use with Delphi Prism for .NET.

The ASP.NET query builder provides you with the ability to build complex queries complete with unions and sub-queries all from within a user-friendly visual interface. This interface also supports drag-and-drop and is styled in the way of Microsoft Access, offering you a familiar and user-friendly solution to work with. However, most importantly, this software provides the first, complete two-way SQL query building as well, combining SQL text editing with visual representation. You can also use the software to define user-friendly aliases for the otherwise unintelligible names of the database tables and fields.

This component can also be integrated with VB.NET, C# and other applications built with Visual Studio 2005 or 2008. Integrating the component is simply a matter of adding a few lines of code, not requiring developers to use any embedded data grid. This means that integration can be achieved as quickly and as easily as possible.

A server-side SQL query parser also offers you complete access to internal query representation objects. This way developers can retain complete control over any SQL query, easily parsing them and navigating through them using the internal objects tree which represents all the parts of the SQL query. These existing queries can also be edited or new ones may be created.

This solution is, most notably, the first ever ASP.NET query builder that offers complete two-way query building. This feature is fully functional meaning that almost all of the SQL queries can be built visually, even queries that contain sub-queries, derived tables and various table expressions. This even includes support for features that are specific to certain database servers such as TOP or LIMIT etc.

The two-way query building ability means that you can easily switch over between the textual and visual representation of the query at any time. You can also modify anything in the query at this time and then switch back to the visual representation of the query. When you do this, the new, modified query will be instantly analyzed and then visually represented.

Saving queries for later modifications is also a simplified and more efficient process, since only the text needs to be saved and no extra, internal file structure is required that can lead to insecurity or other inconveniences.

Saving you time and making SQL query building easier and faster than ever before, this software provides the essential solution to web and software developers. You can find out more about this component at .
