I have a new project starting that requires very specific grid functionality and I''m not sure which Syncfusion grid to use. I’ve been using the GridDataBoundGrid for several months on a previous project, but I’m not sure if it’s the best choice for this one. Here is what I need: The column names of my grid will be a variable amount of weeks. The row headers will be a variable amount of buggy whip names. For each buggy whip row there is data for each week. The intersection contains a group of cells containing data for that week (price, available inventory, sold inventory, …) I have checkboxes above the grid that hide / show the individual data cells. The individual data cells are have a specific background color. I’m accomplishing the above with a GridDataBoundGrid by formatting my DataTable and using the PrepareViewStyleInfo event. But I also need a total section in the grid that totals all the buggy whips for the week column. The rows names would be price, available inventory, sold inventory … The values would sum the individual cells from above. I would also like to group the individual data cells with some type of border. So which grid should I go with? I’m dealing with a lot of data, and I also need to format area of my grid differently than other areas. Thank you for reading this and I greatly appreciate any general suggestions. Steve

There are a couple of pluses for using a GridDataBoundGrid. One is that you are familiar with it, and you have already done some of teh layout work. The other is that the data is in a DaatTable and using the GridDataBoundGrid makes that simple to bind. So, on to the problems. Having summary rows directly in teh GridDatBoundGrid will be problematic. One solution is to put a GridControl into the GridDataBoundGrid''s clientarea. Then you can just use teh GridDataBoundGrid as you are now, and use teh GridControl to provide summary information. Here is a KB link showing how you could do this. It only add''s one summary row, but you could extend the idea to several rows I think. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/article.aspx?id=10398
