Best way to display 4 rows / 4 columns

P: n/a
This may turn out to be an obvious answer of "DataGrid", but I haven't used
that control much and so I wanted to get some thoughts.

If I want to display essentially a grid that could be a spread-sheet type
display, of 4 rows by 4 columns, or anything along those lines [integers],
I'm wondering what would be the best control to display them in.

.... essentially, I'm looking for something that would be more efficient than
putting sixteen individual Textboxes on the screen.

If it is indeed the DataGrid, I'll see about using that, but I didn't want
to start down a route without knowing whether that's a good idea or not.
[and I'm not sure if there's other controls out there that I should look
at].

Thanks for any thoughts anyone can provide.

If you are using 2.0 framework the datagridview is probably a better bet.

Matthewtec,

In my idea is there beside the by Chris called DataGridView not a better
standard alternative.

Here a very simple sample how to build something without a database.

I hope this helps,

Hi,

If you are using vs.net 2003 the listview control is another option
if you are binding to a datasource.
