I have a grid with about 20 columns (most of them are combobox and DateTime) and there also a data pager attached to grid.
We set AlternationCount to "2" in order to highlight every 2nd row.
Before everything was ok, but when we switched to build 2011.1.419, grid is showing the new page extremely slow (up to 10 seconds to switch to the new page) when switching pages in data pager.

Here's a simple code to reproduce this:

<UserControl
x:Class="TelerikTest.MainPage"
xmlns:radGrid="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView"
xmlns:telerik="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Data"
xmlns:radInput="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input"
>
<Grid>
<Grid.RowDefinitions>
<RowDefinition Height="*" />
<RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
</Grid.RowDefinitions>
<Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
<ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
</Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
<radGrid:RadGridView
Grid.Row="0"
x:Name="RadGridView1"
AutoGenerateColumns="False"
ScrollMode="Deferred"
DataLoadMode="Synchronous"
AlternationCount="2"

Note: When you set "AlternationCount = 0" everything is ok.

Hello Serhiy Volhushyn,

Indeed, you are quite right - setting the AlternationCount property of the grid degrades the performance in the presence of much data. We do consider improving the behavior of the RadGridView in such scenarios, but we are still investigating the best approach for handling those cases. For the time being if you want to improve the performance, I would recommend you to set it to "0". 

Kind regards,
Maya

I understand, but how come the same code worked fast with old Telerik builds ?

Hi,

 As far as we know this was never changed. Please send us an application where we can observe faster performance with old version compared to the new one.

I have to apologize for misinforming.
In old version of this screen we were using plain text data column and everything was ok.
But when we started to use cell template now rendering is very slow.
It looks like every column with custom cell template (or GridViewComboBoxColumn) adds about 0.3 sec to rendering.
I just wander why it is so slow with 10 columns and 20 rows.

Hello Serhiy Volhushyn,

Generally, the performance will be proportional to the complexity of your grid's settings, especially on the visual elements that will have to be rendered. So, in case you define a lot of CellTemplate-s with heavy controls inside, the performance will be degraded. 
You may take a look at this article for further reference on tips and tricks for improving the behavior of your RadGridView.
 

All the best,
Maya
