iGrid ActiveX 7.5 SP1 (build 0004) available

Another critical bug fixed in this update is iGrid crash while the user is doing drag select. We strongly recommend that you update iGrid ActiveX to this latest version to avoid any problems in your apps.
Enhancements in AutoFilterManager add-on for iGrid.NET (v10.0.24)

iGrid.NET demo and help file updated
The demo of our WinForms grid product was updated. Some samples were significantly changed to demonstrate features introduced in the latest releases of iGrid.NET. One of these samples is the full-featured My Customers sample, which now outputs group row totals in normal cells in corresponding columns and uses the footer section as grand total. Another greatly redesigned sample named Right-to-Left Mode shows how to localize the grid UI and how to force left-to-right layout for individual cells while the whole grid works in right-to-left mode. You will find functionality improvements and modern 32-bit icons in other samples.
The latest update of Visual Studio, version 16.8.4, brings a problem that causes delays up to 10 seconds while opening pages from the local iGrid.NET help system. The updated help package for iGrid.NET no longer suffers from this problem. It is included into the updated demo installation or can be downloaded separately from the Download section.
