A C# grid control.

Sample Image - grid_control.jpg


This is a simple C# grid control. The control provides a way to display and edit string’s collection. When your program wants to get input from user, generally, you can put EditBox control on your form. But when you need to get a set of dates, the EditBox control is not the best choice. Do we have another choice? Try this, maybe it is appropriate for you.

The control features

  • In-place edit
  • Insert rows and columns
  • Cell copy and paste
  • Line copy and paste
  • Multi-line copy and paste
  • Mark a line
  • Display multi-line in a cell
  • Changing column width with mouse at runtime
  • VS.NET IDE integration

How to use?

Simply add the control to you VS.NET Toolbox, then you can drop it to your form. That’s all, no other. Once you create an instance of this control in your form, you can add columns in IDE environment or dynamically add columns at run-time.
