Hello Good People,

Today we released new version of DotNetBar with SuperGrid Data-Grouping feature. The SuperGrid now supports single and multiple Column grouping, with the ability to specify the sort direction for each group. It provides the end-user with user interface for creating groups and sorting. The grouping section displayed on top of the grid shows current grouping. To perform data-grouping you simply drag & drop column into the group section. Following screen-shot shows grouping in SuperGrid control:

The SuperGrid supports user rendering of additional “detail” group rows through the dynamic use of the GetGroupDetailRows event. Group Detail Rows are temporary rows that can be added by the application following a SuperGrid grouping operation. Group Detail Rows are automatically removed when the grouping changes (either cleared or set/reset to another group criteria). Group Detail Rows are totally defined and rendered by the user application – the row’s content is neither known nor managed by the grid. Following screen-shots from sample app included with DotNetBar shows how detail group rows are used to add totals to the SuperGrid:

There are 60 new features and fixes in this release. Here are detailed Release Notes. If you have current DotNetBar license download latest release on Customer Only web site.
