Options for 10Tec iGrid.NET
iGrid.NET is the most flexible, fast and easiest grid for the .NET Framework. It provides you with a wide range of properties and events which allow you to highly customize it for your particular task. You can use iGrid.NET either as a list view substitution or as a full-featured grid control. With iGrid.NET you can:
- format each cell independently as well as the whole column at once,
- create a message preview like in MS Outlook,
- build tree-like interfaces,
- freeze rows and columns,
- design multi-row headers with merged header cells,
- make scroll bars semi-transparent,
- add custom buttons to scroll bars,
- display custom drop-down controls,
- edit multi-row text,
- save and restore column layout,
- dynamically adjust contents of group rows,
- and do a lot of other things.
iGrid.NET fully supports right-to-left mode (for such languages as Hebrew or Arabic). To put iGrid.NET in this mode, it is enough to set its RightToLeft property to True.
The vast majority of iGrid.NET's settings can be done in design-time - you can populate and format the entire grid practically the way you need in Visual Studio IDE before you compile and launch your project.
Simple access to the cells, columns, rows, and header cells makes iGrid.NET nice to work with. You can use for-each statement to enumerate all the cells, rows, columns. Also you can enumerate the cells of a row or column. The string keys make it easier to access quickly any required row, column, or cell. If you need to format an individual cell, you can define a cell style object with required formatting and apply it to this cell. But there is a simpler way when you format a cell through its properties:
iGrid1.Cells[1, 2].BackColor = Color.Magenta;
iGrid1.Cells[1, 2].ForeColor = Color.White;
iGrid1.Cells[1, 2].Font = new Font("Tahoma", 8, FontStyle.Bold);
