    Datagrid controls seems slow. Shouldn't the #1 priority be a grid that's FASTER than the competition? There's no way we can use this if it's going to be slower than Microsoft's grid.

    First of have you checked so your porblem isn't related to debugging as explained in this thread.
    The one thing I found that's slow is when you group items however the normal grid doesn't even support that. But I bet they are working on increasing the speed of the grid.

    Joakim, thank you for the prompt response.

    Jason, if this link does not help, can you please elaborate a bit more on the problems you experience? For instance any information on the features you are using would help us in pinpointing the problem. We would also be interested in some details about your application - how much data you need to show, etc.
     

    Kind regards,

    Telerik,

    I agree with PortVista.  I have put the telerik wingrid head to head against Infragistics wingrid.  The infragistics grid performs at twice the speed.  The one benifit to Telerik is ease of programming. The sort and filter expression's make for a simple way to achieve our goals.

    Please take steps at improving the speed...

    Thanks

    We are, Elfman. Performance is one of the main goals for both SP2 and Q2, together with better and much improved documentation. We are currently reworking the layout mechanism, which will help us improve performance quite a bit and will allow for many new Grid features. We think that we will be ready with it for Q2, together with the much demanded hierarchy feature. We will post the performance gains from the new layout once we implement it.

    Thanks a lot for your feedback.


    Best wishes,
    Rob

    I removed all the Telerik controls from my project, but I'll take a look again in the future. I would think List/Detail view would be in most demand since that's what anyone normally does. The heirarchy view within the grid is a little strange and I've never really seen this in any major commercial product.

    With the MS grid all you need to do is drag and drop a dataset and you have instantly an MS grid or it creates all the labels and textboxes for you, along with binding, dataset, navigator, and tableadapter added to the form. You can't do this with Telerik as far as I know.

    I just actually discovered this feature in VS 2005, and am playing with it. It's a little tricky dealing with VS's auto-generated code.

    Actually, Jason, we have the same VS2005 design-time data support implemented for out combobox and textbox controls (mapping data fields to default controls that can handle it). The feature will be implemented in RadGridView as well.

    Hey that's great -- I didn't realize you could drag and drop individual columns (when you create DataSets / DataTables under the DataSources tab in VS). Sure enough Rad controls are available when you choose Customize. So yes the RadGrid option would be nice. Even though I hate the rad controls right now, I'm looking forward to the new releases when I can start using these.

    I don't think many people use this method I'm talking about for data access, or don't know about it. It's not exactly compatible with DAAB or ADO.NET for that matter. Originally I was using it just for the strongly typed datatables, when I realized it does also handle the bindings pretty well too.
