Wpf GridControl was initially developed for use in high-performance financial applications. GridControl architecture has many convenient features that are commonly use in financial applications (e.g. cell blinking with specified color for a specified time interval or binding to data sources running in non-GUI threads). Most Wpf GridControl functions are inherited from its predecessor, .Net Grid, that was developed for WinForms technology. It also provides developers with a simple and intuitive API so that they can focus on developing application business logic easily expanding its functionality as desired. Broad usage of data binding and data templates enables creation of high-quality applications with various styles that give only positive impressions to end users.
Wpf GridControl performance is a special issue. The control is the best performing component in the market. It is capable of processing huge data volumes with lowest possible CPU and memory utilization. For example, a GridControl of 5000 rows can process over 30000 data updates per second with simultaneous cell blinking with average processor load not exceeding 20%
