All the best features of our products combined in one!

Enterprise-quality grid solution for next-generation web applications now featuring:

Design-Time Experience

Grid FX's design-time editing capabilities allow developers unprecedented control over the grid's properties. Now the developer can click and drag right on the design surface or access Smart Tags where most functionality is readily available in graphical way rather than a simple list of properties.

Innovative design-time features to help developers easily produce more robust data-driven applications.


Found within Grid FX Auto Format Wizard, Motifs are a powerful and effective way to quickly apply visuals to your grid. Rather than customizing individual grid elements, Grid FX has pre-built professionally designed Motifs for virtually every major application, like Microsoft® Office, Outlook®, Sharepoint®, Windows Vista, Dynamics™ CRM plus other popular formats such as Gmail™, Yahoo® and iTunes® among others. These motifs not only change colors but also apply fonts, column and row effects and even change the characteristics of buttons and other navigation controls to match the grid's parent container or the application visuals. In addition, there are also palettes available to change virtually every grid color with a single mouse click.


Drag and Drop editing

Grid FX allows the developer to intuitively grab, drag and rearrange grid elements right on the design surface. Gone are the days of working through abstract modal dialogs for design-time customization.

Smart Tag capabilities

Grid FX expands on the Visual Studio concept of Smart Tag Wizards by implementing full blown, context-sensitive wizards where most important functionality is readily available in an intuitive, graphical method.


Image handling

Grid FX automatically detects binary fields and allows the you to decide whether the field is an image. For images references as a URL string, Grid FX gives you the option of using the full image URL or a partial string prefix/suffix.

End-User Experience

The end-user experience is pivotal in a successful Web 2.0 application. We began this area of Grid FX by listing out everything we found odd in existing grids from a usability perspective and redesigning a grid component that gives decision makers a level of control over data that hasn't yet been available.

New run-time features allow the end-user to unleash additional power without additional development.

Floating bar

The Grid FX FloatingBar appears in an elegant and usable manner when the user hovers over an editable area. Properties are presented to allow the customization of aesthetic as well as functional aspects of the grid.


Data editing

With Grid FX, end-users can easily insert, update and delete data using either in-place data editing or customizable modal dialog data editing. Either option allows for an intuitive method of end-user manipulation of data.

Grouping, sorting and filtering

End-users need to be able to efficiently manipulate and digest data in order to make key business decisions. Grid FX allows these users to group, sort and filter their data in any way their needs dictate.


Interactive thumbnails

Grid FX can display image thumbnails and allow the end user to expand it to full size at runtime, by hovering or clicking. Similarly, charts can be shown as icons or thumbnails and can also expand to full size on demand.

Innovative functionality

Grid FX introduces new features never before seen in a grid control, or any other Visual Studio control for that matter. Software FX has leveraged over 10 years of award-winning component development experience to produce a grid component with unrivalled functionality.

Best of breed data visualization and analysis features combined like never before.

Integrated Chart FX technology

Grid FX ships Chart FX products in-the-box, offering immediate charts, digital panels, gauges and maps. In addition, these elements respond to contextual information such as clicks, drill-downs and master-detail.



Sidebars define space for child data that enhances the grid without additional design or development. Sidebars are completely flexible and can be used to display anything from html elements to Chart FX objects.

Card view

Card View gives developers an alternative method of displaying data in a non-columnar way. Developers can define custom templates and use these templates to display your data items in any particular layout.


Master detail

Sometimes it's necessary to display detailed information about a particular data row. Master detail allows developers to define areas to display supporting data that may otherwise not fit into their defined tabular layout.
