Hello,

Greetings. First time poster to this forum. I'm wondering what some of the gurus suggest on handling data changes from the server (or other clients) in an n-tier environment.

I have a constantly updating datagrid, used by multiple clients. Items in the grid can be updated, added, or removed by any of the other clients. I considered using several triggers but it got so cumbersome i figured there has to be a better way. I don't want to have to re-download the entire dataset every 2-3 minutes, as that woudl be inefficient for this app. Unfortunately, this is looking like my best option at the moment.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? This problem has been one of my biggest pet peeves with .NET and the "Disconnected Data" paradigm.

Thanks!
Michael
