Extreme Grid Performance

We are currently using the GridDataBoundGrid (binding to a dataset) but are in the process of changing to the GridControl in Virtual Grid mode using a custom thin XML parser and data source. I have two questions: * I have configured the GridControl in virtual mode but am getting sluggish updates with a lot of data coming through. I am using _grid.Refresh() to update the virtual grid every 2 seconds - is there a better option (i.e. only refresh the cells the client can actually see or does Refresh() do this implicitly?) * Is this the best grid option for *only* displaying a large amount of data (up to 60,000 cells)? No updates are necessary. We have been using the GridDataBoundGrid but the performance isn''t good enough for our needs - we are displaying up to 4 grids at once with some updating P&L for 2000 rows / 300 columns every 2 seconds.

Exactly what kind of work are you doing in QueryCellInfo to get th edata? Is it a simple indexed lookup in something like a DataTable? Or, is it something more involved? The code you have in QueryCellInfo determines for the most part the performance you will see. You can try calling grid.RefreshRange(grid.ViewLayout.VisibleCellsRange) to see if that works better for you. There is a sample, \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\Performance\RefreshGrid, that shows ways to optimize the refreshing of the grid.
