Highly optimized new version of VIBlend WPF DataGrid is almost here

by viblend 18. November 2010 23:44

The main focus of the upcoming major release is on the WPF DataGrid control. There are two main areas that were the target of improvement – performance and business-oriented features. The performance is improved in various scenarios including navigation, scrolling and data binding. You can easily create an excel-like spreadsheet with thousands of rows and columns or bind the DataGrid to large datasets. Some of the key new features will be the built-in Clipboard support, Localization Provider, enhanced Data Layer through binding to a DataTable and improved support for MVVM. 


If you have already worked with the VIBlend Silverlight and WinForms DataGrids, you will also benefit from the shared codebase between our DataGrid controls.

Another small improvement will be the new default theme: 

We sincerely hope that you'll like the new changes and we'll be glad to hear your feedback. If you have any questions regarding the new release, please feel free to contact us at
