10 Reasons You Should Choose Syncfusion Blazor DataGrid

10 Reasons You Should Choose Syncfusion Blazor DataGrid

Are you a Blazor application developer looking for a robust and powerful data grid to quench your UI requirements? If so, I will give you 10 good reasons to choose Syncfusion Blazor DataGrid, and show you why it is the best data grid around.

Here are the 10 reasons you should choose our Blazor DataGrid component for your application development:

Let’s take a close look at each of these!

Blasting fast WebAssembly performance

Usually, a data grid lags in performance when the Document Object Model (DOM) element’s weight increases. Most of us justify it as an architectural behavior, but this is not so.

Syncfusion Blazor DataGrid overcomes this issue in any application. And, you can experience its consistent performance while using grid actions like sorting, filtering, selection, resizing, and more.

In accordance with the Blazor WebAssembly performance best practices, we have provided support to :

The following metrics are taken from a configuration of 1500 rows and 10 columns in our Blazor DataGrid component for a WebAssembly application:

Column resizing~100ms
Column chooser~400ms
Column menu~250ms
Filtering pop-up UI~310ms
Context menu~190ms

Support to load millions of data records

A good data grid should provide support to load millions of records. Our Blazor DataGrid has a feature called virtualization through which you can easily load millions of data records within seconds without any performance degradation.

The virtual scrolling feature loads and renders data that are needed for the current viewport alone. The rest of the data are loaded on demand while scrolling vertically.

Virtualization is not only for loading purposes; you can perform all kinds of grid actions with a virtualized grid.

Refer to the following GIF image.

Note: For more details, check out the live performance in our Load millions of data in Blazor DataGrid with template columns and mask row live demos.

Seamless data binding

Data binding is the most essential feature of a data grid. The Syncfusion Blazor DataGrid can bind data seamlessly with various local and remote data sources such as JSON, RESTful services, OData services, and WCF services. It uses a built-in data manager to handle data and supports customizing data requests.

List binding

Our Blazor DataGrid is a generic component that is strongly bound to a model type. There are cases when the model type is unknown during compile time. In such cases, you can bind data to the grid as a list of ExpandoObject/DynamicObject.

This kind of data binding support is not only for display purposes; it also supports all grid actions like CRUD, sorting, filtering, and more.  The supported objects of list binding in our Blazor DataGrid are:

  • ExpandoObject
  • Dynamic Object
  • IQuerable
  • DataTable
  • Indexer field

Remote data binding

You can bind the Blazor DataGrid to all RESTful data services. To interact with the remote data source, provide the endpoint URL. The supported objects of remote data binding are:

Note: For more details, refer to the HTTP client, SQL server data, Entity Frameworks, and observable collection binding documentation pages.

Custom binding

The SfDataManager has custom adaptor support which allows you to perform manual operations on the DataGrid. You can utilize this to implement custom data binding and editing operations in the DataGrid component.

Note: For more details, refer to the custom data binding in Blazor DataGrid demos.

Customizable UI

Everyone has different needs. Our Blazor DataGrid does not restrict users to only built-in features. You are free to pursue your own customizations for each feature.

The Blazor DataGrid has templated components that accept one or more UI segments as input and render them as part of the component. You can customize various parts of the UI using the template parameters. The DataGrid also allows you to render custom components or content based on your logic.

The available template options in our DataGrid are:

Exporting data to Excel, CSV, and PDF file formats

Often, we want to export manipulated data to different file formats. With our Blazor DataGrid, you can easily export the data to various file formats such as Excel, PDF, or CSV with complete customization.

State-of-the-art features

Necessity is the mother of invention. So, a data grid should satisfy its users’ needs by delivering innovative features.  You can enjoy the following advanced feature sets in our Blazor DataGrid:

  • Lazy load grouping: Loads a huge amount of grouped data on demand without any performance degradation as shown in the following GIF image.

  • State management: Allows users to save and load the grid state.
  • Events: Provides more than enough event support to trigger every appropriate DataGrid action.

Web accessibility

Web accessibility is a major and essential requirement for an application. Since an app should be readable and understandable for users with disabilities.

We have developed our Blazor DataGrid with complete web accessibility support to satisfy this essential need.

Accessibility is achieved in the Blazor DataGrid component through the WAI-ARIA standard and keyboard navigation.

  • WAI-ARIA: The Blazor Data Grid UI includes high-contrast visual elements, helping users with low vision have the best viewing experience. Also, valid UI descriptions are easily accessible through assistive technologies such as screen readers.
  • Keyboard navigation: Ensures that every cell is keyboard accessible. Major features like sort, select, and edit can be performed using keyboard commands alone; no mouse interaction is required. This helps in creating highly accessible applications using this component.

Theme customization

Themes provide an elegant look and feel to an application. Six built-in Sass-based themes are available in our Blazor DataGrid:

Material Light and Dark
Material (Light and Dark)

Bootstrap (Light and Dark)

Bootstrap 4

Tailwind CSS (Light and Dark)

Fabric (Light and Dark)

You can easily customize these themes either by overriding the existing Sass styling or creating custom themes using the theme studio.

Ease of use

Every user prefers to render a component and enable their required functionalities with minimal configuration. We developed our Blazor DataGrid to render and enable features with minimal property declaration and configuration.

From the API name itself, a user can easily understand the usage of the property. Also, we have provided component rendering support for complex properties declaration like FilterSettings, SortSettings, and more to avoid typecasting and object type declaration.

Check out the details about minimal configuration in the Getting Started with Blazor DataGrid documentation.
