Evaluating .NET MS DataGrid


 I am currently evaluating the .Net MS DataGrid
Can anybody help me with the following questions

1) Is it possible to make individual cells read only
2) Is it possible to define input masks for individual cells i.e numeric only or date only
3) Is it possible to make cells as type password so that any data enterred is in the form "****"
4)Is there a facility to highlight entire row by clicking on a cell
5) is there a facility double click on a row and fire up an Event
6) Is there a facility to add conbo boxes or other controls to individuall cells
7)Is there a facility to add and delete rows to the datagrid

Many Thanks

Well it is much easier to use the datagrid from infragistics or componentOne, because they have implemented most of the features you want already  without writing a lot of code yourself. Where as in the standard datagrid you have to build them yourself, some are real easy but some, like 1,2,3 aren't that easy to implement.

You better switch to a "real" grid. Do you know that you can get ComponentOne grids fro free from http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbrkit/

Hi Thanks,
Although now I know that all the features are available. Is it possible if some one could tell me how easy is it to implement these features relative to other Datagrid controls such as WinGrid from infragistics. Your help would  be appreciated.

It's real urgent need to prodce a document by tomorrow
