VCL Grid v7 - New Layout View

11 August 2010

Our VCL team is actively developing the next version of the ExpressQuantumGrid - we are hoping to release the first beta in Sept. Over the coming days, I'll talk about some of the key features in this update.

The New Layout View

Many have here it is...a new view type allowing you incredible UI flexibility and offering end-users powerful customization options. If you're familiar with our standalone Layout Control then you'll love this new native Grid View type within our VCL grid.

VCL Grid - Layout View

As you can see in the image above, the Layout View turns the limitations of a traditional row/column approach to data display within a  container control on its ears. You have total control so as to deliver a solution that specifically meets a customer's requirements.

VCL Grid - Layout View Customization

Of course, the new VCL Grid Layout View will ship with customization options - so your end-users can manipulate the UI as needed.

It´s good to hear that VCL comps still alive in DX. Because in the site's title bar it´s missing any reference of VCL comps...

@Junior - They do mention Delphi and C++ builder at the end of their title bar. They also mention them in multiple other areas on the main page.

Glad to see some other new VCL posts today as well. I'm looking forward to the updates. :-)

Looks promising. Hopefully collapsed record caption can also contain a field from collapsed record. Trademark + model for example.

Ray, What's about RightToLeft support.

Have you done any thing in this area?

That looks... REALLY interesting!

The image does not show if the unusable "scroll window buttons" in todays CardView will be replaced with an in-record scrollbar. This is very important usability-wise, presumably for this new view-type as well.

Furthermore, for this nice thing above to be really usable I think there should be properties to make a fixed number of records (or one and only one) show at any given moment. Navigation between cards today with scrollbars can be confusing for users, having one record/card showing they can navigate using a navigator instead and keys they think of as being used between fields could be blocked from switching records.
