    Are there any plans for a Windows Grid Control in the near future?

    Hello Mark,
    Yes, a Grid control is on our TODO list for the next releases. If you want to suggest some features that you would like to see implemented in the Grid control... now is the moment :)

    Best wishes,

    Ideally the grid would be able to serve in multiple capacities, but here are some that I think are important:

    Excel like functionality with enhanced features.  For example, Excel has the ability to select from a domain list, but it is very limited.  Having calander controls, drop downs, calcs, etc would be helpful.  But maintain the ability to copy, paste, delete just like Excel.  Obviously the ability to programatically what can be entered and how it can be edited is important.  Basically if each cell is treated like a textbox, but together they are a grid.

    It would be nice to be able to create recursive data (multiple values in one cell) and have the grid control handle it in multiple ways.  For example you could have cell scroll button, you could have a value or an icon to indicate multiple values, so when they double click the cell they get a small form popup that shows the multiple values.  However, the ability to copy and paste multiple values (separated by a "," or ";") and have the control know how to handle this would be a huge benefit.  Most grid control handle hierarchy from a standpoint of complete records (ie, show me and group the stores that are located in each state), but very fwe have any elegant way of saying for an attribute named Country of Origin, the values are US; CN; CA and be able to parse out the contents of the cell as opposed to viewing that as a string.

    If we could get a control that did these things, our prayers would be essentially answered.

    Hi John,
    Thanks a lot for your feedback! We're adding all these features to our TODO list for the future releases. If you think of something else don't hesitate to supplement this list with more features.

    I also think in addition to the above, that the grid MUST be skinnable and it would be nice if it was easily groupable to replicate the inbox of Outlook 07 (much like this OutlookGrid control.)

    If possible, I would like to see lots of various ways to import and export data.  Specifically, exporting to Excel, XML, CSV, and the new Office 2007 compatible formats would be handy.

    Also, it would be nice if you could nest other controls in the grid's cells either programmatically or through templates.

    Hello Chris,

    We would like to point out that we are still considering developing a grid control and are researching our options. Nevertheless, we will probably have features that are widely accepted and standard for most of the vendors, but we welcome new and fresh ideas. As to exporting data, we will try to provide basic export to Excel as a start. Later on we will probably add other formats, based on the demand. This is how we did it for the ASP.NET grid, and we will probably follow the same path.

    In the new issue of MSDN magazine, there's an ad for a Telerik Winforms grid.  I don't see anything on your site about it.  Where can I find this control?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    It looks like someone in the advertising department at telerik got a little ahead of themselves.  According to the WinForms control roadmap, the next release is expected at the end of this month, April.  I imagine it will make its debut then.

    Good call Vaskess!  I think you're probably right.
