Good day! I am new to programming. I am building an application using WPF. I need to create a table with automatically numbered rows on an A4 sheet. The table must communicate with the database, providing information in the form of a drop-down list. It should also be possible to expand the table by analogy with tables in Microsoft Word. The next pages are to be printed. What technology should I use? On the documentation site, I found a lot of information on this topic, but I don’t know what would be better suited. I will be grateful for the answer.))

    Hi, @vitaminchik . If you have a lot of data, you could display a lot of data in a DataGrid, and display part of the data by sliding the scroll bar.
    For more information you can check the documentation How to: Add Row Details to a DataGrid Control

    In a project I want to create a screen where I want to edit a table in sql server. I have created a WPF project and I am using a DataGrid to manipulate a table. However, the client expects the same editing as in Control Studio (ie to go into editing mode). I tried setting begedit on the current cell which changed and tried different events. https://bit.ly/3DXwuoT However, to deal with problems such as sometimes there are two cells in editing mode and sometimes the new owner of the space does not come. Also much more.

    I haven't seen any perfect examples of insert, update, delete actions with input in edit mode.

    Can some body help me with examples of raw functions and getting into edit mode.
