Just wondering what factors would lead someone to chose the GridTree over the GridData control and vica versa?  The examples look very similar and I can't tell how they are different. 

Thank you,

HI Richard,


Thank you for your update.


We have 5 different grids each derived from the same base grid but optimized for a special purpose.





Standard data bound grid with good performance characteristics. Features such as grouping, filtering and sorting are built-in.


Raw grid API optimized for performance. Can handle data display in a completely virtual manner with no specific binding. Very high update and scrolling speeds.

Spreadsheet control

Excel-like spreadsheet with full formula support. Uses Excel files as its persistence model.

Treegrid control

Tree-like UI with multiple column support. Can be used when Tree-like UI is required with virtualization and high performance.

PivotGrid control

Grid control with pivot UI. High performance Pivot engine is shipped with the control. Operations happen in memory with no dependence on a backend server.


Additional details on aspects to look for with a grid control are available in the below location,
