Data Presentation

  • Banded Layout
    The Banded Layout displays a single record within the control. Users can navigate the records in the underlying dataset via the grid's horizontal scroll bar. If there are more fields than can fit into the vertical grid's area vertically, the layout wraps into another "column".

  • Muti-Record Layout
    The Multi-Record layout displays and arranges records vertically from left to right with a single header (caption) column.

  • Tree Display Mode
    Because individual rows can hold a collection of child rows, you can easily represent data using a tree-like UI metaphor where parent rows can be expanded/collapsed in order to display/hide associated child rows.

  • Caterories
    By using Categories, you can arrange rows into individual groups for improved readability and more efficient data entry. End-users can expand/collapse Category Rows as needed. Should your application require runtime customization, you can allow users to create new Categories and re-arrange them as needed.

Compare Records Side-by-Side

Deliver an experience familiar to everyone.

You can easily configure the Vertical Grid control to allow users to compare individual records side-by-side, temporarily hiding other records. To compare individual records, simply right-click a record's header and select "Add to Comparison" (or select the record using the checkbox). When all required records are selected, invoke the context menu once again and select "Show Comparison".

Data Editing & Input Validation

CRUD operations made easy.

DevExpress WinForms Subscription ships with dozens of data editors that can be easily embedded into individual grid cells. Its advanced features include:

  • Multi-Editor Rows
    Multi-editor Rows are a great way to optimzie use of screen real estate. These rows can display multple cells, i.e. can display the data from several bound data fields.

  • Input Validation & Error Indication
    With built-in data validation support, you can control the manner in which data is entered. An error indicator is displayed if a value violates restrictions you've specified. You can implement validation rules for individual cells and/or records.

  • Masks & Value Formatting
    Implement restricted data input as well as formatted data output.

  • Excel-inspired Conditional Formatting
    With our WinForms Conditional Formatting engine, your app can easily highlight cells or columns based on specified criteria without writing a single line of code. Cells and columns can be highlighted using animated data bars, icons, and predefined color scales.
