What Datagrid Do You Use?

We are about to undertake a major development, and I might be wrong but the standard data grid looks a bit simplistic.

Can anyone advise on a datagrid suitable for development of a large business application.

Does it support paging data?

Ie you run a grid on 20,000+ records, will it return the first couple of pages worth then retrieve more as you scroll?

The datagrid control which is supplied with the .NET environment is very useful. I have used it in my projects and it is an outstanding tool. Of course, it isn't as flexible as other proprietry tools such as Objective Grid but it does the job fine. If you want to learn how to manipulate datagrids properly, have a look at this link:

It was extremely useful for me, I hope it will be for you!
