Product List »
The new generation of our flagship WinForms grid control, iGrid.NET X, was released on July 10th, 2020.
iGrid.NET X is a big revamp of the existing 10Tec WinForms grid control with a cleaner modern UI and support for high-resolution screens and tablets:
The X letter is a roman numeral equal to the version number of the product - 10. It reflects the huge amount of changes made in the product since the previous major release, v6.0. X is also a symbol depicting one of the new UI elements in the grid control - remove buttons in headers of grouped columns.
The work on this product was started in spring 2019 when we decided to release a product that suits the modern software and hardware environment. In addition to that, we wanted to enhance existing grid control based on customer requests gathered since the first versions. Many of these improvements could not be done in the original product and required rewriting of its basic infrastructure modules. Now this hard and long work is finished.
In addition to aforementioned features, iGrid.NET X brings numerous improvements related to usual interface tasks. Among them are the aforementioned x-buttons in grouped column headers to easily remove columns from grouping and one row layout for the grouping panel. There are non-UI improvements related to optimized memory usage and new members providing up to 60% performance gain in operations with cell values. And sure, the new iGrid.NET supports .NET Core 3.0/3.1 and the forthcoming .NET 5.

Our congratulations to all developers using our WinForms grid control for .NET!
iGrid.NET X has been released today. It is an important milestone in the history of the product development because iGrid.NET X is a new generation of the product bringing improvements required in the modern software world. Among them are support for high-resolution screens and tablets, new UI elements for easier use of the grid control, visual enhancements and internal optimizations related to speed and memory usage. All changes implemented over the past year and a half are described in detail with accompanying pictures in the 30-page What's New document for iGrid.NET X.
The demo installation and its portable version include the new iGrid.NET X DPI-Aware sample. This sample is dedicated to demonstration of the new features of iGrid.NET X. The demo was built to support the native resolution of high-resolution screens and allows you to change the size of iGrid UI elements dynamically for comfortable use on tablets.
Read the What's New file, download the new and updated demos to see the new features in action, and enjoy using the new iGrid.NET.
The development of iGrid.NET X has been successfully finished, and the RC2 build of the control is available. The release date is postponed on the first half of July because we decided to implement some non-planned useful features suggested by our customers in June.
The RC2 demo pack now also includes the updated main demo of iGrid.NET with full source code and the demo versions of the control DLLs. You can use them to try the new iGrid.NET in your apps.
The first public Release Candidate build of iGrid.NET X is available. Download the demo pack including the portable DPI-aware demo and its full source code to see iGrid.NET X in action.
We are preparing the next generation of our WinForms grid control, iGrid.NET version X, for publishing. Read the announcement at the top of the page, download the What's New for the new iGrid, and follow our news to find out more about the new iGrid.NET.
This release of iGrid.NET fixes two critical problems related to the right-to-left mode and entering symbols with diacritical marks like circumflex or accent (â, é, etc.). One minor problem related to non-sortable rows was also fixed in this release.
10Tec Forum was upgraded to the latest version of the YetAnotherForum engine. The new version provides appealing and modern responsive interface suitable for usage on desktop workstations and mobile devices. Visit our forum to see its new look, to know how our products are used in real-world apps and to ask your questions if you have ones.
The first and main improvement in the latest version of our flagship WinForms grid control is full compatibility with .NET Core 3.0 which supports WinForms apps and controls. The source code of iGrid.NET was tested for compatibility with the release version of .NET Core 3.0 and changed to make it possible to recompile the product as 100% native .NET Core library. Among other changes in the latest iGrid.NET build you will find enhancements related to resource usage and fixes for all bugs revealed by the moment of publishing.
The demo application of iGrid.NET was enhanced. One of the most significant improvement is the Folder Size Manager sample rewritten as a multi-threaded app. This sample demonstrates how to use iGrid.NET as a TreeGridView control and populate it from a background thread created with the standard .NET BackgroundWorker component:
The electronic and printable documentation for the product was improved as well. Now the iGrid manual is provided in 3 formats - as a traditional PDF document, a Microsoft Word document and HTML stream. The last two versions of the manual can be used to reformat the manual for any desired paper format and/or for convenient reading from screens with various resolution (tablets, e-book readers, etc.). The contents of the manual and reference topics for iGrid.NET members were supplemented with new samples and descriptions. All minor problems in the documentation like broken links and missing references were also fixed.
The demo installation program including the product demo and documentation was updated. It has a more modern light interface, uses bigger fonts and performs faster due to the new technology of adding of the component icons to the Visual Studio Toolbox compatible with all modern editions of Visual Studio 2017 and 2019.
A new version of the .NET documentation tool we are using for our .NET components is available. This version brings interface improvements and fixes some minor problems.
The second service pack for iGrid OCX 7.0 fixes two problems found in the last six months since the previous update. One of the problems is related to working with combo cells in the user interface, the other problem is related to row removal from code. Read the What's New file for more info.

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!!!
