Grid Control in VB.NET

P: n/a
I want to use a plain grid control in VB.NET (Windows
Forms) and yes I do not want to use Data Grid, because I
want to populate the grid manully and have the user edit
it. Does Microsoft has a Grid Control other than Datagrid
for VB.NET (Just like Microsoft Flex Grid in VB 6.0)

Like a lot of controls that come built-in to the IDE, you may want to consider
purchasing your own instead. I recommend Component One's FlexGrid.

You can download it and try it for free. Personally I've been very happy with
it.

P.S. It's not a good idea to use legacy Active X controls, stick with DotNet
whenever possible.

Hi Satyen,

You can use the Microsoft Flex Grid (VB 6.0) in VB.NET.
You may use it by right click on the Reference/ Add reference/COM/Microsoft
Flex Grid control.

Hi,

Perhaps you can consider a professional grid if you have the budget.
Take a look at Xceed Grid for .NET, it is quite a bit more powerful
(yet easier to use thanks to its WYSIWYG designer and documention +
support).
