i have little big question.

Is it possible to let a user create his own grid at runtime and save it as XML file into database?

i need to let him:

Add, remove and rename columns.

Group columns,

Set Cell formats



This i want to save as a xmlfile an store it in database.

Is there already something prefabricated?
If not then i have alot of fun to figure it out.





ps. the spreadsheet is not a option, my boss don´t want it like that :(

Hi Gunther,

A possible solution is to use RadPersistenceManager control to save the grid state once you create it. You can find more information about the control in our documentation and you can see how it works in the following live example. You can customize where to store the persisted state and the following help article show how to store it in the database. Also the control provides an option to store a custom setting and this way you can store the cell formatting and other options that are missing from the built-in.
