Using grids without making them visible

I want to do things to grids like calculate formulas and do search and replace on them without ever making the grid visible. The grids are virtual.

When I try to do this nothing happens. It seems the cells never get a GridCellRenderer instance assigned to them so they don't know how to do anything (I could be completely wrong, of course).

Is there a way to use grid functionality without making the grid appear on the screen?

Hi Ben,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

It is not possible to use Grid when it is invisible, since we could not retrieve
the any Grid information such as row index, col index etc. Any process can be done when we set the grid visibility to true.

Please let me know if any concerns.
