    It would be really great if you could port the Silverlight version of the  Telerik lightweight Datatable to WP7.  I know it is not a trivial task but I think would be very usefull.  Any chance?

    Hi Richard,

    We have already made some research on the topic and currently the Windows Phone 7 platform would not fully support this type of DataTable implementation (considering the fact that code is generated dynamically to speed up getting of column values). In other words, the desktop Silverlight implementation with its performance benefits is currently not implementable on the phone and therefore the added value of doing this would not justify the effort.

    As the source code of the DataTable is freely available, you can download it and try to modify it so that it works on the phone, but you should keep in mind that the performance benefits would not be the same as on the desktop Silverlight platform.

    Let us know if you have further questions on this topic.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
