Are you telling me that for now there isn't a widget that can expose data in
a grid?

Well, sorry, I don't have an idea of the current stage of mono & monodevelop
so maybe I ask things that are in the todo wish list and so on.
I use gambas for my little applications, it  isn't automatic, i define
connection parameters, and i have a method to call a query, then it gives me
a result (an array) and then i fetch and put  data in a gridview.
If there isn't this kind of widget maybe is better if i return on my steps,
I'm not so good for modify widgets for myself.

I don't want things like drag & drop a db-table on a widget, i want only to
know how I can connect and retrieve data from db.

Thankyou ;)

Now i go to hunt @ Gtk#list for informations.
