History of Virtual Forms for Excel


10 years ago we had the challenge while building and maintaining dozens of applications with hundreds of CRUD (create, read, update and delete) Mater-Detail database forms and un-bound forms for creating parameters for reports or getting parameters for some kind of processing.

Developed in many programming environments, among others, in MS Excel and VBA, Python, C#, VB.NET and many others. And also using different databases for the data source like MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access databases, Microsoft Excel Workbooks.

It’s not a problem when you have few forms, but when the app grows and the number of forms increases, men, then it gets messy.

So we decided to create a control that will help us solve that challenge.

With the experience and knowledge gathered over the years and the use of this control in several companies that specialize in creating applications for financial and accounting sector in the Croatian market, we decided to allow others to also have the opportunity to use this control in their work.

And so the company WinPIS j.d.o.o. was born on December 12, 2012.

In the years that followed we needed to translate the control into English and make a foundation so that it can be translated into any other language. Also, we needed to build the designer application so that it will be easier to create the definitions for creating (defining) virtual forms.


Why the name Virtual Forms

The forms that are created at a run time doesn’t exist at design time.

There is only 1 physical form at design time that is hidden in control. When we create a Virtual form the control creates a virtual copy of this physical form. That way we can have many instances of the same form loaded.
