How to display data from database(SQL- Server ) in the Grid?

I suppose you could pass in a function that returns the data in xml format.

simple way using php

php code for a data.php file
function db_connect() { 
$database_name 'xxxxxxx'// Set this to your Database Name 
$database_username 'xxxxxxx'// Set this to your MySQL username 
$database_password 'xxxxxxx'// Set this to your MySQL password 
$result mysql_pconnect('localhost',$database_username$database_password); 
  if (!
$result) return false
  if (!
mysql_select_db($database_name)) return false

$conn db_connect(); // Connect to database 

$query "select * from GUEST";

if (
$conn) { 
$result mysql_query($query,$conn);
$nf mysql_num_fields($result);
$nr mysql_num_rows($result);
$row mysql_fetch_array($resultMYSQL_NUM);
$row[$j] . "\t";
And you call it with your grid

var table = new AW.CSV.Table;
simple example without using XML. hopes this helps

For the record, you can use ANY database.
Run your query and format the returned data into format suitable for AW.
The data can be formatted into XML,CSV,TAB, or even JS code.
