Easy data binding
The Data Grid was built from the ground up following the WPF design paradigm, so all standard binding features are available. Populating the control is as easy as setting the ItemsSource property to bind to your data model.
Underpinning the Data Grid is a virtualization engine which keeps memory footprint low and application speeds high. Even if you're binding to a large data set, the Data Grid will only create UI visuals for what is necessary. With more than a million records we've clocked the data grid at loading the data in under 400ms! And once the data is loaded, scrolling through those millions of records remains an incredibly responsive experience.
Rich data editor support
The Data Grid comes with automatic support for editing DateTime and Color properties using built-in pickers, as well as drop-downs for enum fields and TextBox support for text and numeric properties. It's easy to modify these for particular properties, and to enable your users to view or edit more exotic data types, using the familiar WPF DataTemplate idiom.
Built-in paging support
Lots of data to show? No need to overwhelm your users -- the Data Grid can break it up into conveniently sized pages. Users can easily navigate through data using the built-in paging control, and the control provides many appearance and behavior options, including placement of ellipsis, number of page buttons displayed and page size.
Advanced column features
Records can be sorted by clicking on the column header, a specified number of columns can be frozen on screen while the horizontal scroll bar pans the remaining columns - they can also be reordered using drag-and-drop behavior. Give your users as much flexibility as you want, or lock down the user interface to its core.
