I am new to a project which uses jqGrid. But let me tell you the most unique feature of our requirements and please tell me if there is a better grid for this task:
We need to display a small number of rows to the user (less than 100) and provide a checkbox to the left. But each row is sometimes part of a group of rows and the check/uncheck behavior of individual; rows is sometimes related to the checkbox status of other rows. Also, we need to insert images in the checkbox like a dot, for the parent row when rows are grouped.
I assume this is pretty complex behavior and wonder what is the best tool. Free is best but I'd consider a grid with a license to buy if this functionality is out of the box.
Also, there is an Ajax component and we require this to be unobtrusive.
