Bernardo Castilho Want Flexibility? No Problem.
Bernardo Castilho, Chief Technology Officer

These days everything is about flexibility: flex time, flex spending, flex fuel, etc. While I appreciate this, as a developer my main focus is on controls. So, why not have a flexible grid? Everyone needs a grid for their line-of-business apps and the solution is FlexGrid. Designed to be easy to extend, the FlexGrid is known for its small size, simple object model, cell merging, and owner draw capabilities.

The FlexGrid is ubiquitous. The first version was a VBX control, and then came the OCX, the .NET WinForms, and the .NET Compact Framework. And by popular demand, we just released FlexGrid for Silverlight and WPF for 2010 v2.

What's cool about the FlexGrid control is that it's incredibly small (about 120k, compared to 500k to 800k for most competitors), very efficient, easy to use, and provides most core features demanded by business applications. Some of its unique features include great Excel-like editing with quick and full edit modes, and support for unbound mode, cell merging, owner-draw cells, color schemes and a marquee, serious printing (Silverlight and WPF grids provide methods for scaling and paginating the grid), and easy indexing.

I can go on and on about the FlexGrid, but I think it's best you try it out for yourself. Try the WinForms, WPF, or Silverlight version.
