Differences between Data Grid and Data View

I'm new to Mendix, I'm starting to study the platform and I've been reading the concepts of Data Grid and Data View. Is it correct to state that the difference between the two components is that the Data Grid is for a list of objects and Data View is for just one object? Is that the only difference? When to use one or the other? Thanks for the help.

Yes, that is the difference.  You would use a Dataview when you have 1 object to display or edit (for instance, one order) and a Datagrid when you have multiple objects to display (for instance, all line items in an order).

Hope that helps,
