The DevExpress Silverlight Data Grid is an Outlook inspired editing and data shaping component allowing your end-users to easily manage information and display it on-screen as business requirements dictate. The grid ships with dozens of market leading features including integrated master-detail support and multiple data view options such as TableView and TreeView. And when you need to target modern devices such as the Surface tablet, DXGrid offers built-in touch support.
DevExpress Data Grid Control for Silverlight

High Performance Data Loading

No matter the number of records in your dataset, the DevExpress Silverlight Grid delivers unmatched performance across all data shaping operations. The DXGrid is powered by an asynchronous patent-pending server-side data processing engine (DevExpress Instant Feedback™ UI Mode) so that regardless of dataset size, users can shape and analyze information at lightning speeds, never sacrificing features or capabilities.
When DevExpress Instant Feedback™ UI Mode is used, the DevExpress Silverlight Grid Control and the host application will always remain responsive to user actions regardless of data operations initiated against the grid - from record scrolling, sorting, grouping and data filtering (because data loading is performed asynchronously, in a background thread).

Flexible Data Binding

DXGrid can display tabular data and hierarchical information within it and can be bound to data from a database, an XML file or to any data created at runtime. The grid can be bound to any object that implements the System.Collections.IEnumerable interface or its descendant (IList, ICollection). A rich collection of data source providers are available so you can build highly responsive solutions regardless of data service preferences.

Multiple UI Views

DXGrid can efficiently display data from a single data source or master-detail relationships of any complexity. It offers a comprehensive set of UI Views so you can deliver solutions that solve real-world business problems, without wasting precious time.
Standard Grid – Tabular View: Emulates the look feel and behavior of the Microsoft® Outlook® grid and displays information using a standard table metaphor.
TreeList View: A multi-column TreeView displays hierarchical data using a TreeList display metaphor, where columns represent data fields and nodes represent data records.
Banded Grid View: Quickly arrange column headers and corresponding data cells across multiple rows.
Master-Detail: Display "one-to-many" data relationships of any complexity. Since there are no limits to the number of relationships or nesting levels, each record can expand multiple detail grids and each detail record can have its own detail information.

Powerful Runtime Customizations

A nearly endless array of easy-to-use features are built-in to DXGrid so you can deliver solutions that can be customized at both design and runtime as needs dictate.
