Version 5.0
Released July 8, 2013

  • Xceed DataGrid for WPF has been updated to version 5.0. This version features the addition of the TreeGridflowView class, which is derived from TableflowView. This new view displays details in a tree-like structure under the main column at the master level. A new property on the DataGridControl class, AutoScrollCurrentItem, allows developers to specify what triggers are allowed to cause the current item to be brought into view. Merged headers have been improved, as this feature now supports detail levels and printing. Furthermore, the AutoFilterControl now offers a SelectAll button which permits to select all the values. The displayed value in a DataCell can now be used when exporting or copying a column defining a ForeignKeyConfiguration or a DisplayedValueConverter. Finally, TableflowView now has a Windows 8 theme.
  • Several bugs have also been fixed.
  • Get build 5.0.13327.15450 now.

    [The corresponding .NET 3.5 build for this release is v3.9. It contains select bug fixes only.]

Version 4.5
Released March 25, 2013

  • Features the addition of merged column headers for TableView and TableFlowView. This capability lets developers present data more clearly and logically in the datagrid, allowing them to organize columns under headers that span multiple columns. Grouped columns can be placed under additional, higher-level headers. For example, "NAME," "AGE," "ADDRESS" fields could be grouped together under a "Private Information" merged header. "CLIENT ID" and "NICKNAME" could be placed under a "Public Information" merged header. And both of these merged headers and their associated columns could be placed under a "Customer Information" header that spans all of these columns. Drag-and-drop and programmatic reordering of columns or grouped columns is supported. They can be moved from one header to another (on the same level), and also removed / added back. Column headers can be resized and support the column chooser.
  • The product now integrates into Visual Studio 2012 Toolbox.
  • Documentation now compatible with VS2012.

  • Print preview capabilities let the end-user see what a document will look like before printing it—page view and layout configurations are reflected in the preview. The preview is generated in the background, so there is no waiting for the entire preview.

Version 3.1
Released January 26, 2009

Vastly improving performance and reducing memory usage, especially when working with large data sources, it also means the UI is decoupled from the data source, which keeps the application responsive while data is being retrieved. The data virtualization also supports caching, pre-emptive data loading, and delayed triggering of events to avoid needless querying during scrolling. Also new are Excel export, persist/restore of user settings, context menu column chooser, UI automation to enable script-based testing and assistive technology.

Finally, custom grouping in grid and details is supported.
