ComponentOne FlexGrid for WinForms Features:

ComponentOne FlexGrid for WinForms Great design time support
We make it easy to implement decisions at design time. For example, you can set up styles at design time with an easy-to-use style editor dialog box instead of writing code to do it at run time.

Favorite Features from VSFlexGrid Pro:
Bound or unbound mode and custom data sources
Use the grid in bound mode, where it displays data from an ADO.NET data source, or in unbound mode, where the grid itself manages the data. You’re in charge: bind the grid to existing data structures, use calculated “virtual” fields, perform data validation, or load data on demand.

Integrated printing
Print the grid with a single statement! You have control over paper orientation, margins, and footer text, or you can show a dialog box to let your users select and set up the printer. Printing events allow you to control page breaks, add repeating header rows, or add custom elements to each page.

Translated ImageLists
Bind grid columns to image lists, an easy and efficient way to display database information graphically.

Column references
Refer to columns by name instead of position, if desired. Column keys are automatically assigned to field names when the grid is data-bound, or you may assign them with code. You can later refer to a column using a ColIndex(ColKey) syntax, which will retrieve the column you want even if your user has moved it to a different position on the grid.

Range aggregates
Calculate totals, averages, and other statistics for ranges of cells with a single statement.

Merged cells
Merge contiguous like-valued cells, making them span multiple rows or columns to enhance appearance or clarity.

Hierarchical styles
View data the way that’s best for you and your users with helpful new properties and methods! For example, you can summarize data and add aggregate values with the Subtotal method or use the Tree property to display hierarchical views of the data.

Enhanced cell editing
Use simple text editing, drop-down lists and combo lists, cell buttons, masks, and advanced data validation to control the editing process. For example, you can use an input mask to provide a template that automatically validates data as your users type, or choose to prevent users from editing specific columns altogether.

Even better painting
Make the grid look the way you want it to by painting special effects such as lines, bitmaps, and icons in appropriate grid cells. New to this version are scalable images and transparency.

Simpler, more powerful object model
Now you can customize the grid display by changing stock styles (or defining your own) and assigning them to rows, columns, or arbitrary cell ranges without having to use the multiple properties of the ActiveX control. The new object model replaces them, making the process even more efficient.
