    Hi, Our team is working on WPF version of the grid. Even WPF technology has big performance problems, our alpha version of WPF grid demonstrates a performance, comparable to winforms one. We hope this summer we'll release full-futured WPF grid. Best regards, Dapfor

    Good to hear you are working on a WPF version. I guess with the rich data binding features and dependency properties, WPF should provide for better performance than windows apps. Our requirement is to have a grid that supports real time fast updates coming in from the network and provide real time sorting, filtering, grouping while the updates continue. We have 4-5 such grids open at the same time in our real time dashboard showing different views. I guess there must be more than 1000-1500 updates/ sec in all. The requirement is that the CPU utilization should not go above 15-20% which we are not able to meet using our in house grid. I am hoping yours will :)

    Hi, Yes, it'll support dependency properties as well as all kind of bindings provided by .Net Grid. May be it will be a surprise for you, but WPF text rendering is 5..10 times less performant comparing to GDI one. Regardless this fact, the WPF grid will support about 20000 updates/second which is 3-4 times less comparing to winforms. Best regards, Dapfor

    Is this still planned / in development? All the other grids on the market are terrible compared to the Dapfor grid but it really is about time we had WPF support!

    Dear Joshua,

    Thank you for your interest in our products. We work on the WPF version of the grid, but at the moment we can't provide delays when it'll be released. What we can say: our prototype has very good performance characteristics comparing to the .Net Grid. It inherits the best features from its previous version and we hope it'll be a good alternative for existing solutions.

    Best regards,

    Dapfor

    Is the work still continuing or has it been shelved?

    That is exciting news. Is there any way to get a beta version or a look at preliminary documentation ahead of the official release? I'm currently working on a new development project at my firm and it would be good to have an idea of the Dapfor grid architecture in the back of mind to make the eventual port as easy as possible.

    Please find an attached example of the Wpf Grid, demonstrating its performance and some features.

    Are you looking into making your XAML grid work under Windows 10 with x:Bind support?

    Thank you for your interest in our work. At the moment we are working on data binding, auto filtering (we'll also keep the INotifyPropertyChanged pattern) and cell blinking. The grid is designed to work on all Frameworks >= 3.5 and all OS >= Windows 7. 

    Best regards,

    Microsoft admitted at Build that data binding was particularly slow.  For Windows 10 Universal Applications (which can be in C++ or C# compiled native with garbage collection but outside the .Net framework), they announced something called x:Bind that will allow for much better data binding performance.  They have indicated that x:Bind will be brought over to the .Net framework, but no time frame for that has been given.
