Q1 - Not easily. You would need to use a virtual GridControl and write some code. See this sample. \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\In Depth\VirtTreeGrid Q2 - There is no simple property setting to do this in a GridControl. You could handle virtual events and implement this functionality, but it will take some coding. Q3 - The GridDataBoundGrid needs a datasource. You can handle the grid.Model.QueryCellInfo event to dynamically provide data other than what is in the datasource to the grid. Another option would be to dynamically create a datasource (like a DataTable or ArrayList or ???) and use that for the DataSource of the grid.

THanks clay, What is Virtual Grid? How the virtual Grid is different is different with GrigControl? What are the criteria to pick which grid should I use? Thanks,

Take a look at the Virtual Grid Lesson in the Essential Grid Tutorial in the grid User''s Guide. A virtual grid is a GridContrl that does not hold any data. It gets its data from virtual events. Here is a forum link on the different grids. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=29413 You can also look through the User Guide sections on each grid.
