Most of the data on the Internet is stored in tables within a database. RadDataGrid provides the same abstraction over the data – it has Columns and Rows and the intersection of a Row and a Column is called a Cell. When the data from a database is sent to the client, it is usually converted to a Business object (or the so-called ViewModel) where each instance represents a Table Row and each property of the object represents a Column within the original table.
RadDataGrid Key Features:
