WinForms Grid - Guess the Feature

Thinking Out Loud
17 January 2013

The next major release of our WinForms Subscription will include a highly requested feature for our Grid Control.

We've had so many requests for this feature, I thought I'd see who'll be the first to tell me what it is by viewing the following video:

Let see who gets the answer first. :)

Slick! I'm guessing it's the grouped row that slides at the top of the grid?

Am loving it.  That super smooth scrolling looks amazing and the group headers staying in place is going to be a massive win for me.  10,0000 points to DevExpress :)

Hm .. I love the smooth way the grid content moves. So I guess it's not the header whichs stays on top of the group but the pixelwise movement of the content (instead of jumping row by row).

Its a 'static' group header. Displays the current group as header for the group items that are scrolling in/out the top of the screen. This way the group header stays visible.

Really great job guys!

Hi,

is it the iOS-style scroll behavior? Those headers get stuck until another header hits the top border and moves the previous one out of view.

Anyway, looks nice.

I'm going with "sticky" group rows that stay on-screen while a group member is visible and that little button that looks like it's for popping to the top of the group.

I think it's not my request, but when i red the title I was sure it was the chartview I expect for so long :)

Anyway, looks like to have something about the icon displayed at the right of some data rows. Can't wait to see what you're preparing for us.

Partial row scrolling? Really? THIS is a highly requested feature? Then I guess I really don't fit with the typical DX customer profile.

My app users couldn't care less about partial row scrolling. If I show this to them, first thing they'll ask (again) is why on earth am I wasting my time (and their money) on such things while there's still no way to have a single scrollbar for a master-detail grid!
