"Using Xceed DataGrid for WPF Professional Edition in Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2010 helped us greatly reduce the time and resources necessary for developing all the data presentation features we needed. Working with Xceed has been a pleasure, and they update the product often and provide innovative new features such as 3D views for visualizing data. We will certainly continue to look at their technology in the future as a complement to our products."
- Norman Guadagno, director of product marketing for Microsoft Visual Studio Team System, October 27, 2008
"IBM U2 researched existing third-party solutions and identified Xceed DataGrid for WPF as the most suitable tool. The datagrid’s performance and solid foundation take true advantage of WPF and provide the extensibility required for IBM U2 customers to take their applications to the next level in presentation design and styling."
- Vinnie Smith, U2 Tools product manager at IBM, October 27, 2008
I have been using the WPF Grid for 3 years now. I have been very satisfied with the updates that have been added. I am a little sad about the free version, but totally understand the need to make money, and I support that effort whenever I can get a customer to see the value. Your support staff has always been good about getting to the bottom of issues and helping developers understand the functionality and fixing issues that have been found. So kudos to you!

I just recently gave a presentation to the CEO of the reporting application I developed with Xceed DataGrid for WPF. He absolutely loved it. ... Xceed has a great product but equally as important they also have a outstanding and very knowledgeable support staff.

"Having met a number of obstacles in getting Microsoft’s WPF DataGrid control to function as I required I decided it may be prudent to look at some of the other offerings. ... So how does Xceed DataGrid for WPF stack up against Microsoft’s? ... In short, most of the stumbling blocks that I’ve hit getting the Microsoft WPF DataGrid to do something pretty trivial ‘just work’ with the Xceed grid."

"...a great data grid that is not only full of rich features, but really adheres to the WPF design principles."

"God, how long did it take you to digest enough WPF knowledge to write this control? It's crazy good. Hands down to the best grid I've ever seen, top work."

"I highly recommend Xceed DataGrid for WPF. This is a solid product with good support. It has been out in real release, not beta, for a long time already, and it just works. It took a half day or so to drop it in and hook it up, figure out a few subtleties, and it was ready to go. I still had some questions, so we purchased this product too, and their support staff turned the questions around quickly with definitive answers. Xceed also offers a free, highly-capable version of DataGrid for WPF, so check it out. Save yourself some time and hassle and go straight to Xceed DataGrid for WPF."

"In what is probably the single coolest usage I've seen (from a purely practical developer geek kind of way) Xceed created an interactive XBAP to show off their new data grid."

"WPF didn't ship with a DataGrid control in .NET Framework 3.0. The fine folk at Xceed Software recognized that and have now released an enterprise strength WPF Data Grid control to the community. They have a beautiful demo XBAP called Xceed DataGrid for WPF LiveExplorer that lets you see the control in action and use it for yourself."

"I appreciate the grouping feature and the fact that it supports UI virtualization, a non-trivial bit of functionality that makes a big difference when you're working with large datasets."

"…and I started to play around I actually was speechless! It's called DataGrid for WPF and its rocks! Ohhh, and its FREE."

"By the way, thanks for all of the help. We recently converted ALL of our
50+ datagrids to use Xceed because we were so pleased with your product.
We understand that it is a 1.0 product, but the support has been
wonderful and for the most part we have been able to get done what we
need to get done."
- Ed Schultz, AI Systems, May 14, 2007, a day before the release of v1.1
"A few weeks ago I was introduced to a fantastic WPF datagrid control made by the team at Xceed... what really suprised me was the fact that it was being given away for free!!! So being the ever sceptic, I thought to myself that Xceed have got a great rep for controls so surely they haven't just slapped something together... Thankfully they had really done their homework and have produced an awesome control. I've used it extensively now and have nothing but positive things to say about it... for a first release it is wonderfully stable and the binding support makes it a breeze to work with."

"As a promotional 'here we are' for their company this is an incredibly smart idea – but its also a great service to the dev community."

"I just started using this grid a few days ago and I can say that the power and flexibility offered are incredible... In my limited experience so far, the support provided by the community forum has been excellent and is well staffed by the Xceed development team. Every question I have asked was quickly answered with accurate and detailed information."

"Xceed DataGrid for WPF is neat and beautiful with almost all the features that we expect from a GridView... One of best custom controls written for Windows Presentation Foundation until now."

"This free control fills the void left by Microsoft in not supplying a data grid for WPF, and it seems to do it quite well."
