Which control is better a gridBrowser + Datagrid sort feature

P: n/a
Hi!

Windows of the application IO have to built (my first one in vb.Net) is made
from 2 part:

a) A grid wich will be used only to display the main information of the
current record (so the grid must select the entire row and not allow
editing). I have selected the datagrid so far and succed after many
research to allow only entire row selection with this help
http://www.syncfusion.com/FAQ/WinFor...c44c.asp#q792q

b) Other controls that will be used to edit the other fields of the select
record. It could have as many controls in the top part of the windows as
there is field in the record.

1) I just would like to hear about pleople who knows what whould be best
between DATAGRID, LISTVIEW AND REPEATER... other choice?

2) I had a hard time to do what I excaly want to do with this DATAGRID!
Another big problem I have is that the datagrid sort by itself - nice
feature... but I would like to keep the same current selected row after the
sort!

Any idea will be appreciate !

Thank you,

JC

Hi Jean-Claud,

If you are not editing direct in the datagrid, does the listview look in my
opinion much nicer.
But you cannot bind it like the datagrid.

They both are not easy to fill, to sort and to set columnwide but.

The sort from the listview is very easy to set off, it is standard, sorting
column by column with the listview needs an extra seperated self written
class (but available in MSDN)

Just my thoughts,

Cor
