Sneak peek: Date interval grouping in server mode. Again the WinForms grid scores (coming in v2011.1)

08 March 2011

In version 11.1, we'll be adding support for group intervals for date-time columns in XtraGrid, our WinForms grid. In server mode, no less, in order to minimize the data transferred across the wire. You’ll be able to change group intervals via a single property setting in server mode in the exactly the same way as you do in regular binding mode.

The following animated image shows the user changing a column's group interval in XtraGrid:


(Click to make larger.) I do like the “Smart” grouping interval, I must say.

There’s more new WinForms sneak peeks coming. Stay tuned.

Please note (Month week) and (year week number) Groupping are a must

Great future! Will custom group-operators be posible? I would like to see "Group by Quarter" :-)

@Marjus: Not in this version, I am afraid. As you understand, we have to construct a query to execute it on the server side, and it may be difficult to approach it in a general case if you are using a custom grouping algorithm.
