3rd party Gridview that can be edited like a spreadsheet


I have been looking for ways to make an GridView editable like a spreadsheet and it does not look possible.
Are there any third party controls that do this and can be purchased by themselves instead of buying a product like Telerik for example?

Hi Murray,

What you are looking for can be achieved by using many commercial solutions which range between Free to Ridiculously high priced.

If you have a budget in mind things become bit easier.
Personally I would go with any of the big 3 (Telerik, DevXpress or Infragistics - The last one is my favorite for Grids/Reporting features)

Now, If you want to put in some effort and looking for a simpler / free solution then please check:

Their code is open sourced and support is dirt cheap (if you really need that).
