    Hi,

    I do a little tests with RadGridView and I have to say that the RadGridView ist extremely slow, especially the scrolling. I first added a DataTable object as data source with 130 rows and 20 columns. The application was running full screen with 1920x1200 screen resolution. Scrolling is nearly impossible, the grid takes 2 or more seconds to update the position of the rows. After that I added a List<T> with 500 DateTime objects to see if the problem lies elsewhere, but without success. 

    My computer is a Pentium Quad Code @ 2.8Ghz, 8GB ram, NVidia Quadro NVS. I know that the graphic adapter isn't the fastes in the world, but for scrolling a table it should be enough.

    What can I do to improve the performance!? The problem is that our customers have way slower computers. So the RadGridView is not useable for me.

    Thanks in advance

    That's strange, I routinely have grids with thousands of rows and dozens of columns, no problems with performance on much slower hardware (my development machine is an almost 3 years old laptop) and I have SQL Server running on the same machine ...

    Hi,

    I think the problem is more the graphic adapter than the processor. I also figured out that disabling the grouping mechanism improves the performance slightly. But the grid is still much slower than the normal Windows Forms one. So I hope there is way to impove the performance, because I would like to use it.

    Best regards

    Hi Martin,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Currently RadGridView is not optimized for larger number of columns (10+).  We know about this limitation and we plan to implement column virtualization in our upcoming Q2 release (more info). Nevertheless, please send me your application in a new support ticket and I will research if we can optimize something in your app. We will also consider your scenario when refactoring the scrolling mechanism. 

    Should you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.

     

    Kind regards,

    Hi Jack, 

    thanks for your answer. My application in the moment is only a little test application, so there is no need for you the try to improve the performance. Furthermore I read that the next version of the RadGridView will support ErrorText properties on grid cells. This is also an realy important feature for me, because I'm planning to replace the Windows Forms grid view with the Telerik one in an existing application. And there I realy need the new ErrorText cell property. So, I have to wait for the next version.

    Best regards

    I haven't touched this project in a few months and decided to upgrade to Q2 2011.  Now the GridView performs terribly slowly.  I tried a vanilla project with the same results.  I uninstalled WinForms (seems I had 2 version, 2010 and 2011) and reinstalled 2011 but no change.  Also, this seems to be isolated to the GridView alone.  PageView and other controls seem to perform fine.  Any advice at all is appreciated.
