I would like to know which grid control is best for use in unbound mode with code
grid formating and value insertion. Also any example could help.

Best regards!

Hi Danilo,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products,

You can use Syncfusion  GridGroupingControl for unbound mode.  You can add the unbound column using UnboundFields property from GridTableDescriptor class. if you want to save the values in unbound column you can use theSaveValue and QueryValue event.

Refer to the following code example.

//Add the UnboundFields in GridGroupingControl


void TableDescriptor_SaveValue(object sender, FieldValueEventArgs e)


    if (e.Field.Name == "UnboundField") //&& RecordIndex >= 0)


        UnboundValues[e.Record.Id] = e.Value;



void TableDescriptor_QueryValue(object sender, FieldValueEventArgs e)


    if (e.Field.Name == "UnboundField")


        e.Value = UnboundValues[e.Record.Id];

Hi Danilo,

The GridControl is the best for using unbound mode in Grid formatting and value insertion. If you want to use data source to the grid, you can use the GridGroupingControl. And also, if you want to use sorting, filtering and grouping options in the Grid, you can use the GridGroupingControl, since GridControl does not support this.

Please refer to the following KB to choose the best grid,

Please let us know if we had misunderstood your query.
