Sneak peek: WinForms grid – the best keeps getting better with multi-summary footers (coming in v2011.1)

Today is my fifth anniversary of working at DevExpress (I started on the 15th March, 2006), and just like that very first day, I’m travelling. This time, it’s chez Microsoft where we’re learning about the New Stuff coming up in the near future.

This coming year though, more than of all those five, it seems we’ll be announcing much more functionality than ever before across all our supported platforms. Today I have a quick sneak peek for our WinForms XtraGrid control.

The grid will be gaining multi-summary footers per column in the next major release, v2011 vol.1. As usual pictures are worth a thousand words, so I’ll show you what it all means. First here’s a grid with a simple single summary row, like what you get now.

Next, here’s an image showing multiple summaries in that summary row:

Finally, here’s an image showing how your end-user would add or remove summary fields from the summary row.

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks: we’re getting closer and closer to code freeze for v2011.1.

Will this functionality work with XAF? Perhaps just separating with a Semicolon in the GroupSummary property?

Looks interesting!

ASPxGrid Team, are you watching this as well?

Can't wait... :-)

Looks great!  Sure would be nice if those context menus could be skinned without requiring a barmanager on a form :)

How will this affect the current workaround for displaying multiple summaries? (A1101)

It's always better to use native solution :).

You will have printing and exporting support.

As for kb article - workaround should work too.

The ASPxGridView already support multiple summaries:

And the ASPxGridView has had this feature since it was first created. :)

Any chance the summaries will now be subject to whatever filter is set?
