Fast data processing

The WinUI DataGrid supports data processing operations like sorting, filtering, grouping, summaries, and real-time updates that are handled efficiently using the PLINQ.

Data binding

Data binding works out of the box for all popular data sources. It automatically generates columns for a data-bound collection. It even assigns appropriate column types for specific data types.

Seamless editing experience

  • Use different built-in column types such as combo box, check box, date, and text box.
  • Embed any control, such as a progress bar or rating, to view or edit the data in a cell.
  • Commit or rollback changes when the data object implements IEditableObject.
  • Add new records dynamically.

  • INotifyDataErrorInfo
  • Data Annotations

Also, it’s possible to use:

  • Cell validation
  • Row validation

Data operations

WinUI DataGrid sorting.


Sort data against one or more columns with multiple customization operations. You can also sort by caption summary values when the grid is grouped, or by writing custom logic.

WinUI DataGrid grouping.


Group data by one or more columns either through mouse and touch interactivity in the group drop area or in code behind. Or group data with custom logic.

WinUI DataGrid filter like Excel.


Filter data with the row filter or an intuitive, built-in, Excel-inspired filtering UI.

WinUI DataGrid summary rows.


Calculate and display sum, min, max, average, count, and custom aggregates in a table or group. Display summaries with different summary types, such as:

  • Total or table summary
  • Group summary
  • Summary in group caption or header

Real-time updates

The WinUI DataGrid control can handle high-frequency updates even under the most demanding scenarios where the data is sorted and grouped in real time. The summaries are calculated in an optimized way and the updated summary is displayed in real-time scenarios.

Column sizing

Column width can be adjusted (auto fit) based on the content of any column or column header. All the columns can be fit within the viewport of the data grid.

Master-details view

A master-details view (nested grid view) can be represented through nested grids that can be expanded and collapsed. Functionalities like editing, sorting, filtering, and grouping are supported. Unlimited levels of nested grid relationships are allowed.
