Customer Reviews

iGrid is fantastic! It is incredibly feature rich, which to me is the most important factor when purchasing a development tool. Not only that, but it is very easy to implement in projects, and the pricetag is very reasonable, especially when compared to similar tools competitors offer. Add to this the responsiveness of the support team and you have a winner!

I originally found you from your google ads when searching on Google for something like "c# .net datagrid". There were several things I liked about your product, but I'll name the main selling points. First of all, I couldn't find any way to accidentally throw unhandled exceptions in design mode without even touching the code in the code editor (which I can't say of all such products). Second, the syntax for doing most tasks was straightforward and easy to learn. Last, your product had very excellent sample code.

We examined many .NET grid controls but didn't like the way most of them required Datasets, were memory inefficient and none of them were an easy replacement. After finding 10Tec's iGrid.NET control our decision was very easy. It is extremely easy to use, very well thought out and documented and the conversion went without a single problem. More time was spent removing the previous control than implementing this one!

We started with iGrid in 2002 after getting no response from SGrid's developer about lacking features. 10Tec implemented suggested features from several users, including ourselves, and grew iGrid into a very worthwhile ListView/Datagrid replacement. It's been improved constantly since it branched off from SGrid and we look forward to many great future enhancements. iGrid is also well-supported and is at the core of all our products. Our software wouldn't be possible without iGrid.

The more I learn about iGrid, the more I love it! Thank you!!!

iGrid.NET 5.0 with new footer section released
2015-May-15
A new significant update of our WinForms grid control is available. The main innovation in this version is a new footer section displayed at the bottom of the grid. This non-scrollable area, which is always visible like the header, can be used to display any additional data for grid cells - such as totals, custom text and graphics messages:

Footer cells support all formatting options available in normal cells - custom colors and font, text alignment, format string. 5 aggregate functions, Sum, Average, Minimum, Maximum and Count, can be calculated automatically and displayed in footer cells. If the standard cell layout is not enough, you can use custom drawing to represent any info in footer cells:

The long list of other improvements in this major update includes the ability to specify empty space after the last column and row, the scroll bar value changing event to modify the position of the thumb box on-the-fly, new methods for cells and column headers that simplify coding, and fixes for all recently revealed bugs.
The electronic documentation was also greatly enhanced to reflect all latest changes and new functionality. The iGrid.NET manual contains renewed sections that describe the classic concepts of the grid control much better.
Read the accompanying comprehensive What's New document to find out more about all changes and enhancements.
AutoFilterManager add-on for iGrid.NET runs in .NET Framework 2.0
2015-Mar-12
We still have customers restricted by the version 2.0 of the .NET Framework, and they need our iGrid.NET with the autofilter functionality in this environment. The previous versions of AutoFilterManager used LINQ, and the minimal version of .NET for it was 3.5 because of this. But we have managed to rewrite AutoFilterManager without LINQ and even optimize it a little bit so now it can be used in .NET 2.0. You can request this special build if you need it.
Christmas update of iGrid.NET brings greatly enhanced functionality
2014-Dec-24
We congratulate all our customers with Christmas 2014 and publish an update of iGrid.NET, build 4.6.20, with some great enhancements. The most important of them is the improved sorting algorithm that allows users to sort primitive data types like integers and strings up to 2.5 times faster! Among other changes you will find bug fixes for some annoying problems related to the keyboard and mouse interaction with the grid control.
The accompanying electronic documentation of the product was also updated. Descriptions of some iGrid members were enhanced, and all links to iGrid members work ok in all versions of the Microsoft Help Viewer supplied with Visual Studio 2010-2013.
iGrid ActiveX 5.0.105 out
2014-Dec-11
This update of our ActiveX grid enhances the virtual mode so it can be used to extend the grid automatically if required when data are pasted from the clipboard. One minor bug with the EndUpdate method was also fixed in this release.
iGrid ActiveX 5.0.102 with improved TreeGrid functionality published
2014-Oct-28
This build of iGrid ActiveX improves the TreeGrid functionality and fixes a series of bugs related to it. Some problems with drawing were also fixed in this release. This is an important update to install if you are building TreeGrid-like interfaces.
One more great enhancement in this release concerns event parameter names. All row index and column index parameters (lRow/lCol) that can contain the zero value were renamed to lRowIfAny/lColIfAny to indicate the fact that the developer should check them before using as row and column indices. No changes are required to the existing code or compiled exe applications due to the COM binary compatibility rules.
The help file was also updated to reflect all recent changes, and more details about the iGrid functionality were added to some topics.
iGrid.NET 4.6.12 out
2014-Sep-26
This update of iGrid.NET adds autoscrolling support for column headers that significantly helps user to reorder columns in wide grids. Some critical bugs related to the autofilter functionality, incremental search and grid events were also fixed.
New Backup Manager sample in iGrid.NET extra sample library
2014-Aug-26
The new extra sample for iGrid.NET contains a ready-to-use implementation of a class that can be used to back up several grids into memory and restore them later. All cell and row properties, column order and column widths, sorting and grouping are saved/restored.
