ASP.NET & MVC - Grid Performance Enhancements (v18.1)

ASP.NET Team Blog
24 May 2018

With the v18.1 release, we have improved performance of the DevExpress ASP.NET GridView control's adaptive mode. In fact, these enhancements are available for both ASP.NET WebForms and MVC.

Using new internal algorithms, we've significantly improved the layout recalculation logic of the ASP.NET and MVC Grid View in adaptive mode. The control's client Initialization is now up to 6 to 18 times faster when compared to earlier versions.

Adaptive Mode

The DevExpress ASP.NET & MVC GridView controls allow you to build adaptive or responsive page layouts with ease. The grid can automatically resize or hide grid data when the browser window is resized. The layout behavior can be customized by using the SettingsAdaptivity property.

This feature is great for your end-users who view your website from mobile devices.
