Dear all ,

Could anyone suggest some good 3rd party grid control of visual

Thanks in advance.

For a non-editable "Grid" (Where I used the MsFlexGrid in VB6) I now simply
use the Listview that comes with VS2005. It offers more or less the same
functionality, just filling it up takes some getting used to. If you want
you can even flip a few properties to make it look like a grid, including
the gridlines.

Check out http://www.codeproject.com/cs/miscct...ridcontrol.asp

The source grid is written for the 1.1 framework, but the documentation
says that it will work with 2005.

I use the version 2 of the grid, which is very flexible. The current
version is 3, but I don't have experience with that version.

The C# code is available for free for tweaking the grid.

One thing to keep in mind is the last two major release changes
completely changed the existing events, properties, and methods. Some
were eliminated. The code is NOT backward compatible with previous
major releases, and there is not upgrade wizard for your exhisting
code. I rewrote my VB.Net code once from version 1 to version 2,
because there were a lot of great features. I would like to switch to
version 3, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel again for my VB code.
I also have tweaked the current grid code, and I don't want to do that
work again ... yet.

Thanks Shane, for this tip. This looks like a great grid.
I also appreciate your compatibility warnings.
