Work with frames

A frame is a two-dimensional data structure consisting of rows and columns that is nested within a spreadsheet cell. It is also referred to as a nested spreadsheet. Just like regular spreadsheet cells, frame cells can be linked with components' properties to drive the UI of your application. Numerous MINTDATA™ spreadsheet functions take frames as arguments and/or return frames. It is very important therefore to understand how to work with frames while designing your application.
