We are having two types of Grid Controls in our WPF platform,
GridDataControl is designed based on the cell-oriented architecture of the Windows Forms Grid control that provides more control over cells and supports for Excel-like features.
SfDataGrid is designed based on the WPF template-based architecture that provides support to customize the Grid easily and fully supports binding.
Both SfDataGrid and GridDataControl almost have the same set of features. But SfDataGrid has some features that are richer than GridDataControl. When you want cell level customization and excel-like features you can use GridDataControl. When you want customization like styles and template features, specific to WPF, you can use SfDataGrid.
Comparatively, the performance of SfDataGrid control is better than the GridDataControl. So for the legacy we have removed the GridDataControl from the toolbox, and it is possible to use in XAML file.
Please let me know if you have any concern.
Thank you for your update,
We have SfDataGrid control like GridDataControl. But, when compared to GridDataControl, the SfDataGrid has a better performance and flexibility. SfDataGrid assists you to create entirely customizable and highly interactive features used to display and manipulate the huge amount of data. We suggest you to use the SfDataGrid rather than GridDataControl.
