Rows Options

The Data Grid provides a full-scale set of row configuration options such as setting its row selection feature through checkboxes and applying row selection to single or multiple rows.

Also, you may need to implement the sticky row feature, which means that you can stick and always display some of the Grid rows even when the user scrolls the table.

Additionally, you can render supplementary information about the data in a specific row it by utilizing the detail row template, and to persist the expanded state of that row too.

Columns Options

The Data Grid provides an extensive collection of column configuration options, too, such as hiding and spanning its columns, and setting multi-column headers and a column menu for quick actions. You can also lock (freeze) the columns which means that when the Grid has to show large amounts of information, you can conveniently display specific column data at all times.

You can easily set and seamlessly integrate the column reordering feature of the Grid for any column and with any available Grid feature including locked columns.

The Data Grid delivers options for resizing its columns, too, which takes place real-time and can also be controlled from the outside.


The Data Grid supports a virtual scroll mode for its row data, which means that the component dynamically renders only a portion of the rows. This virtualization approach boosts the performance of the component when it has to display large data tables. Read more about the virtualization feature of the Grid...
