A Quick Look at Silverlight 2's DataGrid Control
If you follow my blog, you have probably noticed my obsession with data grids. I haven't actually checked my archives, but if I had to guess I would bet somewhere around 70% of all my posts in some way include ASP.NET's Repeater, GridView or ListView controls. Lately I have been taking a look at Silverlight 2 so naturally I was curious when I saw Scott Morrision's post titled Using the Silverlight DataGrid.
I eagerly read through his post and started working on creating a very basic demo app. I thought a good way to introduce myself to the DataGrid would be to build a page that allows me to set the values of the DataGrid properties so I could watch how it effects how the DataGrid presentation (usually this is what a designer is for, but it wasn't working so well for me. I am sure it's user error.). Anyway, I found this little app useful so I figured I would post the demo and source.
Also, just in case you haven't seen - the Silverlight DataGrid supports column resizing and freezing column/row headers! If you play around with the demo page you can see how this looks.
That's it. Enjoy!
