    WinForms RadGridView vNext will feature new hierarchy modes and performance improvements!

    During the past year, we received many suggestions for new features and bug fixes for RadGridView for WinForms. After analyzing them we realized that we should do a major refactoring of both the data layer and the UI of our grid control. Then we set an ambitious goal -- to refactor the control and implement the most wanted features. This is obviously a massive task and the new grid control will not be part of Q1, but it is coming up afterwards as beta, and will be officially available for Q2 2010. This will give us enough time to test all...

After several months of hard work we are almost done with an application, which may be easily described as Expression Blend, but for Windows Forms. The most important aspect of the new VSB is that it will decrease the amount of time needed to create or tweak themes from days to hours, and even minutes! We have considerably simplified the work flow to allow you to focus on more important things,...

    Smooth scrolling in RadGridView for WinForms

    Up until Q3 2009, RadGridView for WinForms used a scrollbar in every child view when in hierarchy mode. This however can be a problem when there are many nested levels, i.e. it can lead to a situation where you do not have enough visual estate to scroll through the hierarchy:     In our latest release RadGridView is using only one scrollbar that scrolls the root level and all the child views, with no performance loss whatsoever, because we have optimized the scrolling mechanism to be better performing and smoother:     Since there are cases where using nested scrollbars is the better option, we still offer the...
