Need a simple grid for ASP.NET Ajax?

A client grid control is probably the most requested control for the Ajax Control Toolkit. It will come eventually but if you need a simple grid control right now, DotNetSlackers' Ajax Data Controls do a pretty good job. Their grid supports pagination, sorting, drag and drop of columns, in-place edition and is server-integrated. They also provide repeater types of controls but those are made a little more complex to use because of the lack of data binding. The whole thing is open-source. w00t!

Cool, thanks for the tip. The open source controls are specially nice because I have the chance to dig into the code just to see new ideas from other programmers.

kamii47: We already have that feature on our to-do list.

Mike: This page just lists the samples that are available for the Gridview control. There is no ajax used on that page.

Bertrand: Thanks for the posting this :)

Hi Roy,

This is regarding the status bar getting displayed in the alert box. I had posted my reply to your query in that post but my reply is not getting reflected there.

Actually, the browser versions are same for both and also, its the browser's status bar that is getting displayed in the alert box.

@Raj: the comments are moderated, and this is mentioned clearly when you try to submit a comment. Re-submitting comments ten times doesn't help ;) Commenting on a different post helps even less. And my first name is Bertrand, not Roy...
