Windows.Forms Tree/Grid Control Released
FlyGrid.Net soars from 9Rays.Net
November 22, 2004 -- 9Rays.Net introduces FlyGrid.Net to its family of .Net Windows.Forms controls.
FlyGrid.Net is a fast, lightweight and highly customizable Windows.Forms Tree/Grid control that completely manages the data interface (bound and unbound), offering outstanding power and flexibility to browse, edit, add, delete, and manipulate tabular and hierarchical data. With far more features for speed and option control, FlyGrid.Net outclasses monster Windows.Forms 3rd party Tree/Grid tools, which are notorious for being difficult to customize.
Key features in FlyGrid.Net include flexible runtime/design time node editors for node collection and fastest node management (addition, clearing, sorting), extended cell block selection, split view capability (so users can split the grid into separated split views which can all be resized), full support of RightToLeft, and numerous drag and drop options.
FlyGrid.Net works in bound and unbound modes, connecting with several types of data sources with provisions for non DB-bound data and IList implementors. Developers can create, edit, delete, expand and collapse master/detail views at design time, and detail grids function independently or can automatically synchronize with one another.
FlyGrid.Net fully supports XP themes. The hierarchical master/detail view is so flexible that the grid can be used as a more faster and convenient replacement of TreeView and ListView (details mode) control.
The FlyGrid.Net Column component has four type of editor styles -- simple, dropdown, dialog, and spin -- and allows sorting of columns and supports images in column headers. Developers can create their own column types (by inheriting from one of the base types of columns), implement custom dropdowns (any Windows.Forms control), and customize drawing and keyboard/mouse handling to processing of custom data. Developers can also create their own type of Node to implement node custom drawing or special Node functionality.
For ordering information, please see http://www.9rays.net/cgi?bin/components_order.cgi. The Light version of FlyGrid.Net, which offers basic columns types, is $212.95 USD and the Full version, offering a wide range of additional column types, is $287.95 USD.
