Best third party grid control


G

Guest

I'm looking for a solid, extremely extensible, grid control, and was
wondering what other people were using and why the like or dislike their
particular grid control.

What i need is one that lets you do owner drawing, add images to cells and
headers, add other controls in a cell, the full gambit.

also, only looking for a third party control, not a open source control
found on some code site.

There are three I like: Infragistics, ComponentOne, and SyncFusion.

SyncFusion's grid is a bit easier to configure, but they can all pretty much
do anything you want. Go to their websites to see demos/screenshots/feature
lists of each one (add .com to the company name and you are there...).

Hi John, you should get lots of posts!!!

Personally, I like the Infragistics control suite. I've used their controls
for many years and through many versions. I have not seen too many things
that cannot be accomplished with their controls, and I frequent their
newsgroups to find out how to do different things. The community support is
excellent, and Infragistics has techs that seem to do nothing but answer
newsgroup posts. The techs always respond quickly and with the right
answer.

I'm not sure if the grid supports "owner drawing" because I'm not sure what
you mean by that. The grid does have free-form column layout, and many
features of the layouts that I've never used. Also, with the "other
controls in a cell", I know this can be done, but I've only ever used it in
a couple of places, so I can't speak very intelligently to this topic. I
would suggest you post to the Infragistics.dotnet.WinGrid group at
news.infragistics.com to get your questions answered.

I hope this helps.

I have personally used a lot the Janus GridEx control and I think its one of the best grid controls out there. BUT the control requires a bit of work - means you need some time to get familiar with ALL the features that comes with the control - yes, it has many many features. More info: www.janusys.com

I use ComponentOne.com. They have a "FlexGrid" that easy, right out of the
box or you can customize in just about any way you can imagine. You can
ownerdraw if you need to.

Hi John,

Syncfusion's grid are the best, they have many grids, you can suite the
grid for your need. If you need a cell oriented grid, go for
GridControl, with that you can create an Excel application. If you need
to bind data go for GridDataBoundGrid or GridGroupingControl.
GridGrouping is good for hierarchical data handling. If you have huge
data, Virtual grid can be implemented. Their support is so quick. Hope
this helps to..

Regards,
Jones

If you are after an Excel style grid then take a look at Spread by FarPoint
(www.fpoint.com). It allows you to provide your own custom renderer for a
cell so you are not limited to just the standard cell types but can display
whatever you want in whatever format you want.
