Iron Speed Designer is a very user-friendly designing tool that lets you build database-connected .NET applications. The best part about Iron Speed Designer is that you can extend and modify the built applications.
When you launch Iron Speed Designer, Application Wizard appears. In the first step, you specify the page style for your Web page. The page style you select here becomes the style for all Web pages. In the next step, you specify the location of the database file and the authentication method. You also select the database tables and views. In the next step, you specify how to create Master-Detail pages. In the next step, you specify the data filters that you want to view on Web pages. You also specify the display order of fields and table columns. You can choose to edit a column name for clarity. In addition, you can hide some fields and sort fields in Web page view. You can also specify the navigational controls to be included on Web pages. Clicking the Finish button creates the .NET application.
If you want to change the binding properties and their display style, you need to invoke the Properties dialog box. Here, you can change the Display properties, Initial value settings, Data bindings, SQL query, Security settings, properties, and events. If you want to use data from more than one table and create a join, you only need to click the Query icon on the Tables Panel Wizard. Then you need to specify the tables and the join conditions. By using the Role Based Security Wizard, you can specify security settings for user, roles, sign in, and sign out. When you compile the application, you will see that the built application has all the layers. Iron Speed Designer allows you to build your application by using a multitude of programming languages. You can modify the built application by using a set of customizable classes that Iron Speed Designer automatically creates upon compilation.
Iron Speed Designer lets you create a .NET application without requiring you to know SQL. In a nutshell it is a great tool for designing a neat and effective database-driven .NET application.
