Infragistics, ComponentOne, DevExpress, other?

Hi everyone,

We're needing to pick a suite of components for our C#/VS 2005 development.
Top on our list is a treeview that integrates with a datagrid. I think all
the big goes provide that.

Does anyone know which suite is the "best" or are they (Infragistics,
ComponentOne, DevExpress, other) all about the same?

Thanks for any insight or opinion.

Ron,
I think you will find that people will reccomend the one that they
currently use. I'm using the Infragistics collection of components for
several years now and I like it but the object model has a steep learning
curve when starting out. They have a good TreeView and a good Grid but I'm
not sure what you mean by a treeview integrated into the grid. You can get
sample code and trialware at their site www.infragistics.com.

Hello Ron,

I would have to agree with "the other Ron" that people will recommend what
they have used. I have used Infragistics for the past 3 years and have been
happy with it. They provide a lot of options for customizing their controls
and a lot of hooks/events as well. Some other things I appreciate are their
sample files (both online and installed with the libraries). They also
monitor their newsgroups relatively well providing some good answers to
questions.

In regards to the question of the grid/treeview question -- if you mean
something like clicking on a node in the tree and having the grid update
itself with information, I think you will find it to be more than adequate.
If you are looking to have a grid of treeviews, I think it can do that as
well. I don't remember if you can actually put child controls inside the
grid, or if you have to resize the control/cell to make it look like an item
is in the grid. In older versions of Infragistics, that is what I had to do
to display some dynamic controls.

I have started with a new company this week that doesn't work with
Infragistics. I will recommend we use it if possible.

I hope this helps,
cj

One more vote for Infragistics... I actually purchased Infragistics,
ComponentOne and Syncfusion, I hated ComponentOne for their manu control
(seemed very counter-intuitive, spent way too much time adding a menu to my
app). Syncfusion is great quality, but Infragistics is simply more
complete. They are always coming out with new stuff (ComponentOne does this
too), and I really like that both their Windows and Web component suites are
very good and complete.

Infragistics tech support forums suck, but I have had good luck when using
the ("real", according to them) tech support via the submission forms on
their web site.

They have a good update policy, they have a major release every quarter (as
does ComponentOne), and they release hotfixes between major releases. It is
relatively painless to upgrade between versions, too.

All in all, I only use Infragistics now, Syncfusion has a great grid
(probably the best of them all), but as a whole, I don't think you can beat
the completeness/reliability/support of Infragistics.

If I were you, I'd buy the Infragistics without priority tech support, that
seems like a great deal to me.

Don't know about DevExpress, though.
