A new sample demonstrating the integration of the cell merging functionality with other grid features was added to the iGrid.NET demo. This is the Project Plan sample that shows how merged cells, tree functionality and post-paint drawing can be used together to display project plans in a Gantt chart form:
A standalone demo of the iGrid.NET control is also included into the demo package now. It does not require installation or administrator privileges to launch it and can be used to quickly evaluate the features of the iGrid.NET product without deploying the full demo package.
A major version update of our WinForms grid control was released today. iGrid.NET 6.0 is a big update that implements numerous improvements compared to the previous major version, and the most significant of them is the long-awaited versatile cell merging feature for normal cells. Now iGrid can be also considered as an advanced DataGridView alternative with merged cells:
The updated PrintManager add-on released with iGrid.NET 6.0 supports printing of merged cells and some new options. In addition to all that, the new iGrid.NET contains performance improvements and bug fixes for all bugs revealed since the previous public update. All changes in the control and its PrintManager add-on are listed in the comprehensive What's New file on 11 pages.
The printable manual and electronic help system for iGrid.NET were updated to reflect all new concepts from the version 6.0. The new iGrid demo contains several new samples that demonstrate usage of merged cells in various scenarios.
The demo installation package was also enhanced for faster deployment of the control DLLs and all accompanying files.
This update of iGrid fixes 3 minor problems. One of them is the annoying beep when the user presses the Delete or Backspace key in our ActiveX grid in Microsoft Access forms, which is a common problem for all 3rd-party ActiveX controls used in this development environment. Now iGrid is free from this drawback due to a special low-level keyboard hook based on the IOleInPlaceActiveObject COM interface.
This update of our ActiveX grid control brings two new experimental features and fixes some serious problems mainly related to combo box cells. The comprehensive What's New file supplied with the grid control describes all the changes in details.
The help file for iGrid has been also updated. The updated versions of some topics contain more detailed descriptions of the corresponding iGrid members and coding techniques.
This service update for 10Tec xDir ActiveX Library fixes one problem related to enumeration of files and folders in UNC style paths (\\server\share).
Two new samples were added to the extra samples library for iGrid.NET. The first sample, CheckBoxIconTree, demonstrates how to implement a TreeListView with icons and checkboxes to select multiple rows:
The second new sample, Drop-Down Calendar with Date Ranges, provides you with a ready-to-use class that implements a drop-down calendar editor with the ability to limit the date selection range.
The earlier implemented Backup Manager sample was enhanced. Now it can be also used to back up and restore the contents of tree grids, including the expansion state of every tree node.

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!!!
