10Tec ActiveX Grid Control Customer Reviews

Customer reviews of 10Tec iGrid, an ActiveX grid control for the Microsoft Windows OS.

Rated 5 of 5 based on 38 reviews.

I love iGrid and I really appreciate your work.
Thanks to iGrid I could focus on functionality instead of user interface - it saves A LOT of time during developing and then testing.
iGrid is like missing piece of puzzle you were looking for. And when you try it - you love it and you can't live without it.
Without iGrid - I wouldn't be able to create some of my programs. Even more - iGrid gives you new ideas you wouldn't have before.
Thanks again and good luck.

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.
It's working great! There is no other grid out there that does what iGrid does. Sure, SGrid doesn't flicker, etc., but it has tons of bugs and isn't being worked on. The new iGrid (v3) is simply fantastic!
Our software wouldn't be possible without iGrid.

I have purchased ActiveX iGrid and I think it’s great. It has really helped me bring a nice user experience to my Access application. A flexible data grid is the one control that Access really doesn’t have that is so often used.

I enjoy working with iGrid, it has a lot of options but yet it's simple and intuitive . Since I began using the grid, it inspires me and helps me find better solutions for my application's interface. Your support is also very good.

I was looking for a "grid" product, I tried several ones but your component it's the best.
I'm using it for a Betfair Horse Racing Betting Automation program.
Your component is the main interface for the user to view/update/edit table data. I use it in a very extensive mode.
Thank you for iGrid, i'm still happy to have found a so good com for my program.

I’m the main developper here at BMD gestion informatisée inc. We bought your iGrid module (with sourcecode) yesterday and its already under implementation. I must say it’s a very good product and (seeing the sourcecode) you guys did a really great job.

I’m working hard on implementing iGrid in my MS Access project.
Up to now I did not find anything what I cannot do so I am really impressed about your work!!!

Thanks for your hard work to deliver such an amazing product, iGrid is the only choice I will use to replace Microsoft FlexGrid, power, easy to use, with good looking, cool!

iGrid 2.5 control from 10Tec is the best tool I could find on the market. Its high level properties, events and methods allowed me to easily tailor the grid to specific requirements I had. Help system, full source code samples provided and customer support are superb. For this price its a bargain and I wish I had found the control much earlier and saved all the months I spent trying to work with the DataGrid control.

iGrid is an great replacement for MS Flexgrid and listview controls. The long list of built-in features are not just impressive, but very flexible and useful. With available Visual Basic source code and great help from 10Tec Staff, we found it easy to modify to suit our needs. As a software developer, we are very pleasantly surprised with iGrid and plan to use it extensively in our products.

When I was looking for a tool that extends functionality of the standard Microsoft Visual Basic 6 grid controls, I found a reference to iGrid. It looked impressive and its interface was flexible and very easy to implement right out of the box. In no time my application looked and functioned the way I wanted. iGrid has lots of features for various types of applications.
If you need an advanced grid product for your next development project (and for a bargain price), you found it!

I like you. I know my purchase from you was a wise choice.
I consider documentation very helpful, but I tend to look at the samples first and documentation second. Thanks for the demos they were a great help.
Rating: rating 5 of 5 stars
The current version of iGrid is good and It suites my needs. A .Net version would be good and opens up the market for you and could potentially bring in sales from developers using .NET that would have gone elsewhere. Keep ahead of the competition or at least in line with it.
Hope this helps and keep up the good work

Thanks for your help and your fast response. Your speed in replying to me is fantastic. I have downloaded the extra samples pack, and will take a look in there for the solution.
Once again thanks for the great service and great product.

I love iGrid! Its many powerful features are really good, and your philosophy of continually updating the product leaves many other ocx suppliers in shame!

In answer to your question about what are the things I like best about iGrid I know the first thing that came into my mind was your user support! I rarely contact suppliers such as 10Tec, either with bugs, wish lists or for technical help. To tell the truth I suppose it's rare because I've pretty well given up trying to get *any* response from most of them - and that includes from the smallest to the very largest corporations (read Microsoft, Crystal Decisions...). 10Tec however is to be congratulated on the quality and speed of your responses! And who could complain about the speed of fixing these (relatively minor) bugs!

It is really difficult to say for sure at the moment which properties or methods I like best, I just know that I have been able to do what I need with the control and I have not yet tried a lot of the features. I find with a lot of controls I have worked with that I can not achieve what I want and resort to API calls to try to get there. As I am using database most of the time, the FillFromRS method is very useful. I also use the BeforeCommitEdit and AfterCommitEdit events a lot to monitor exactly what the user is up to while editing in the grid and then react based upon their actions. I also like the ability to be able to edit the properties of the cells one at a time, for instance I may change the back color of a single cell if the value in it indicates something may be out of the ordinary.

I have finally got round to buying your grid - it is a pleasure to use compared to, say, the over-complicated Infragistsics thing which I struggle with. Moral: Keep It Simple!

We are building a CAD based utility program for sewer systems. We used iGrid a lot in the program for properties of entities, layer manager etc. iGirid made our job very easy even you can not imagine.

Thank you very much for your reply. The samples are well put together, and answered my question, together with some other questions that I would have had to ask next.
Thanks for your help and support!

I'm enjoying working with your IGrid control...great job on it!
Rating: rating 5 of 5 stars
First, let me say how happy I am that I discovered iGrid! I'm in the middle of a project that I really couldn't have done successfully without it. What a wonderful job you've done!
Your web site, demos, documentation... everything had me convinced to buy it even before I realized I could actually download it and try it before buying. Then, there was no question - it did everything I needed and much more!
I'm looking forward to learning the various features... and I'm already imagining replacing my old "solutions" with iGrid ones.
Brilliant work - Congratulations!

I bought your iGrid yesterday and am currently integrating it into my development project. All of the deficiencies of MSFLEXGRID are laid bare when using your more sophisticated product.
Rating: rating 5 of 5 stars
I have spent several weeks (maybe months)... trying to get MSFlexgrid to do many of the things that you've done in iGrid and I think that iGrid can save me from many weeks (or months) more work.
I am a new user of iGrid (for just 2 days) and I want to tell you how excellent iGrid is. I am able to do much more with iGrid in a shorter period of time then I ever could with FlexGrid.... and the support is extraordinary.
I am close to implementing a set of database applications making extensive use of FillFromRS and other functions and I am switching over from using FlexGrid.
I was also able to implement ExportGrid to Excel (using modified routines from your demo applications) in a matter of minutes. This is something that my users want their new database system to do since they are comfortable working with their data in spreadsheets.
I find your demo source code to be very useful as a base for my routine code.
This is an excellent product, well worth the price.

Generally, iGrid is really really really cool. I tried MSFlexGrid, MSHFlexGrid, SharpGrid, uGrid, and tons of other Grid components found in the Internet, iGrid still SIMPLY THE BEST!!!

Thanks for help and my compliments on the grid control. I have used many grids over the years and recently switched to yours, it is by far the best I have ever encountered and you have proved the point with excellent help.

I've bought your product, iGrid, and I have to say that this is the best vb component i've ever worked with .... and best of all, at a reasonable price .. Thanks...
Rating: rating 5 of 5 stars
I have been working with your IGRID product for two weeks now and like what I see. Great Value for the price.
I write a lot of code in a scripting language called Winbatch and it has an extender very similar to xDir. Thanks for making a simple but elegant tool available.

Thanks for you quick reply. This is another reason I like using your product. You are helpful to your customers.
I don't know if I speak for all, but as for me, I like controls that are lite, simple to use and work fast. Too many of the products out there are so bloated with features and are so large that I feel like the program is hauling around a lot of extra baggage that slows it down and presents opportunities for the control to fail for some unplanned reason.

Thanks again for your friendly help! iGrid seems to be the best thing I found in the last 3 years. I'm really sure that iGrid could find "a new home" in my application. :-)

I have finsihed my integration of iGrid. It works perfect, fast and very smart. With iGrid I could delete many unattractive old code lines.
Your extra examples helps me a lot, above all the great thumbnail code!
THANK YOU FOR DEVELOPING iGRID!!!

I just wanted to thank you for all your help you have offered while I was learning how to work with the iGrid tool. This tool is great and helped us out so much!

Thanks for the great OCX. I always have trouble finding a way to present live data to the user without getting the undesirable "flash". IGrid handles it just fine.

We googled around looking for an activeX Grid component and found it at your web site. We then downloaded it and made several tests and decided it was able to do all we needed. After the tests it still contained features we do not use at present but we may use them in the future. This was also an important point for us.
The documentation of the iGrid component has proofed to be very clear. The use of iGrid in our programming environment is easy and straightforward.

iGrid is a fantastic product and I appreciate the quick response this morning. FYI, iGrid replaced a VB databound grid in a VB6 application used at Volkswagen of America...
Thanks again!

It has always been a gross oversight that MS, among all the garbage activex components they distribute with VS and VB, do not offer a decent editable grid. One has to stand on one's head to mimic editability in the MS-distributed grids. IGrid is a long overdue and necessary component. Better yet, it works as advertised and the level of support 10TEC provides is phenomenal.
