WinForms DataGrid - Avoiding Paint, Brushes, Table/Column Styles etc. - Can Infragistics or ComponentArt Do It Better?

Rather than all that painting, brush, etc. code to change the styles of a
..NET datagrid to start with and on the fly, I'd rather be able to set a lot
of the stuff in the designer properties of the grid. Would I buy any code
savings buy using an Infragistics/whatever datagrid? Any recommendations for
a best practices doing it with the .NET datagrid? I guess a custom control
dll type data grid with lots of nice properties would be interesting but I
wanted to avoid that also.

Hello Ken

Interesting. I'm a developer and doing this best practices research for a
wall street trading firm where we are replacing an existing trading system.
Thusly, they are willing to pay if it will buy them at least something 20%
better than the Extended Datagrid, not that I really know enough about it.

Would you say that the Infragistics UltraWinGrid control type of grid would
do the same thing as the Extended DataGrid?

Thank you,

Richard

Hi,

I have heard good things about the infragisitcs UltraWindGrid. I
have not used it. I really have had good luck with the developer express
grid.

I have a datagrid and want to change the background color of the end column to denote that it is the only column that is not read only. I still want this column to be editable. I've found examples that let you change the background color of the cell but it but the cell no longer appears to be editable.

Hi, I needed to build a data grid in which the first column has hyperlinks rather than simple text. I found the following code on this newsgroup and it works fine except for one problem. When I click the column headers all the columns sort except the hyperlink one. I checked the underlying dataview and that does get sorted so it seems like it is more of a display issue. I am guessing it has something to do with the hashtable used by the...

Hi, I need a big help to resolve this problem. I need to put a usercontrol in a datagrid: this control check if the code inserted is present in a archive and if not return a error message. (In the example I have changed this check with a easy "if string is empty" ) Everything would be easy if the datagrid had a predictable behaviour. I explain my problem.

I've been bothered for some time about my DataGrid not populating my rows very quickly. I have about 10K rows loading into the grid. I create a datatable dt with 2 columns, an ID and a display.

I then set my DataGrid.DataSource = dv; I then load the datatable with my rows, and this is...

Hi All; I am using the HeaderAndDataAlignColumn class from Ken Tucker. I have customized it for a wider row. I reposition the DrawString method so the text is centered vertically in the row. My problem now is that on ReadOnly cells the shaded background is not at the top of the cell. I adjust the rectangle Height so that the shading does not drop into the next row.
