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.
