    I don't know if this is working as expected but when using the tag helper version of the grid it does not seem to read the model's display name for the title.  Using the MVC HTML helper I do not have to explicitly specify the title as it reads it from the model.  Is this a bug in the tag helper or just working as intended?

    On that note, I know the tag helper does not seem to support all the functionality of the html helper version.  Is there a document somewhere that compares the working functionality between the two grids?  I would love to always use the tag helper version but I just don't because I get half way through programming the grid and find out the tag helper does not support the same functionality.

    Hello Rick,

    The Grid's tag helper requires the column title to be set explicitly, so in that regard it works as intended.

    As for a document that compares the tag helper and the Html helper, we don't have one at the moment. The Grid's tag helper documentation section contains information on basic configuration and features of the component, however, it is not as extensive as the Html helper's documentation. We will be improving that going forward.

    If you face difficulties with a specific configuration of the Grid's tag helper, feel free to submit a support ticket, or open a thread on the forums and we will assist you further.
