    No problem. Glad to help. It just struck me as strange when it happened. I uninstalled and reinstalled the latest complete package back to my other drive.

    – Grid Appearance
    Save column size, row size, column sort, column order
    (and later apply them to the grid again)
    So next time the user open the application, then these settings are the same.

    Maybe: saveGridSettingsToXML() and loadGridSettingsFromXML().

    Also the possiblity to get the settings as a string, so these settings could be saved in a database.

    +1 for Implement ICloneable.

    Odi:
    What is the release date for v2.0 of the grid ?

    Regards
    C#

    Office 2003 look & feel would definately be a plus, in a perfect world COM and native Win32 programmers would have access to the latest Windows GUI enhancements (XP/.NET) without having to change to another development environment.

    I’m using a custom editor that implements the ICellEditor-interface, and inherits from System.Windows.Forms.TextBox. I’ll try and catch the Tab-key in the implemented IsInputKey-method. Thank you.

    Hello Neil.

    Your suggestion makes perfect sense! As a mather of fact, Xceed Zip ActiveX v5.0 (and 4.x) supports “extra headers” (that’s the name for the custom data you refered to). One of those is the extended filetime extra header, which can hold all three filetimes (last write, last access and creation).

    Supporting extra headers in the next version of Xceed Zip for .NET is on top of the feature list!

    I would like the ability to store a full date/timestamp for last write and create dates without breaking compatibility. Doesnt the zip format allow for custom data? Perhaps Xceed could manage this intelligently so as to associate a timestamp to a file stored in an archive and then shield the developers from it by encapsulating it as a standard datetime property.

    Forgive me if this is an absurd request. I’m not an expert on zip formats, so I dont know if this is possible or not.

    Thank you for the reply. I tried it, and the Tab-key is now caught by OnKeyDown. The code is executed like it should (more or less), but because IsInputKey returns true, the CellEditor of the current cell is activated when I press the Tab-key. Can this be suppressed?

    <b>~PROPERTY TOOLBOX~</b>
    One thing we really need is the Property Toolbox that was in 2.0.

    It was a major feature that we used on our activeX app, but now moving to .NET we need to come up with some way of faking it. I’m considering using the taskpane, but I can’t control the spacing (for alignment of textboxes, combos, etc.) and I can’t add a button after a text box to provide any kind of dialog, especially a network dialog.

    <b>~TAB STRIPS~</b>
    None of our users, and no one I know for that matter, is a big fan of the OfficeXP tab style. A nicely malleable TabStrip control similar to the one found in SUI2.0 is so incredibly useful that I can’t even put it into words. Because this is no longer included, I’m now looking at Infragistics version… which I really didn’t want to have to do. If XCeedSoft could be my one-stop GUI control shop, the world would be a better place!

    <b>~CHECKBOX & OPTION CONTROLS~</b>
    Manipulating windows controls to get the WinXP look (orange hover, green check, etc.) is a royal pain and often does not look quite right. The options controls provided look perfect, but they are not free-form placement.

    <b>~BUTTONS~</b>
    Also, having individual buttons would be really nice. As it is, I have to fake that as well by creating a new Toolbar for each button I want to use. Since this method works fairly well, it doesn’t seem as high a priority.

    1. I would like to see some performance improvement when using the .Indent and .Setparent properties.
    The control is fast for a big number of items unless you use a combination of both properties.

    2. XP look & feel scrollbars

    3. The explorer task pane (as found in the .net version) would be very nice!

    Also, it would be nice to include buttons. Right now as it stands, I can’t replicate the exact look and feel of say, the File Explorer search task pane, because for one thing, I can’t include command buttons, unless there is a way to do this now that I don’t know about. If so, could someone please explain how?

    I would like to see XP style tab pages. I have searched high and wide, and I don’t see any control that will simulate true XP style tab pages. Using Application.EnableVisualStyle() with .NET 1.1 or a manifest resource to enable XP styles only enhances the tabs themselves. The actual page is still the windows background color.

    I don’t know why no one has done this yet. I’m looking for a true XP style interface, not a partial XP interface.

    Hi Jason,

    There are two possible options that might be of interest to you:

    1- You can use a ValueRow that has a GridCheckBox as a viewer and editor for the desired column and, if your user checks that cell, then it checks all checkboxes in the corresponding column. Of course, the ValueRow would be in the grid’s FixedHeaderSection if you do not want it to scroll with the grid body.

    2- If you want the CheckBox to be in the ColumnManagerRow, then you will need to create a class that derives from the ColumnManagerRow class and override the PaintForeground method. In the PaintForeground method, you can then use the Framework’s ControlPaint.DrawCheckBox method to paint the checkbox (according to its state). The only problem you might encounter with this solution is that when you click on the ColumnManagerRow, the grid will be sorted according to the values of that column. You can always set the columns AllowSort property to false to prevent it from being sorted though.

    I hope this helps!
