Xceed today unveiled the most significant upgrade to Xceed DataGrid for WPF since the product's launch in January 2007. Version 2.0 of Xceed DataGrid for WPF Professional Edition features the addition of hierarchical master/detail. Many other new features have been added to both the Professional Edition and the Express Edition. Xceed's support for WPF will help facilitate adoption of Microsoft's next-generation platform, which lets developers create the world's most powerful desktop and rich client applications.

The addition of master/detail capabilities to Xceed DataGrid for WPF Professional Edition makes the component the de facto standard among datagrids for Windows Presentation Foundation, further reinforcing its position as the most feature-rich control of its kind. Version 2.0 of this product lets developers create applications with the utmost in data-presentation flexibility through master/detail grids. This means that each datarow--whether in the main grid or in a detail--can have an unlimited number of details attached to it. Furthermore, details can have "sibling" or "child" details, or both, and also support headers and footers, grouping, sorting, and autofiltering, as well as custom detail relations and different styles for the data items contained in each same-level detail. Finally, custom grouping in grid and details is supported.

Various additions have also been made to both the Professional and the Express editions. Several new editors for a total of thirteen let end-users take full advantage of their data, allowing them to clearly discern the trends and patterns hidden within and consequently make better decisions based on that data: their data will do more work for them. Furthermore, a new design time configuration window lets you set up the most important features quickly and easily, which, when combined with the elegant, intuitive design of the component's object model, will facilitate the creation of grid-based applications. Finally, a Resource Center application now available with the component centralizes various DataGrid for WPF assets and provides a news feed for the latest developments concerning the product.

Finally, Xceed DataGrid for WPF is thoroughly tested and compatible with Visual Studio 2008, .NET 3.5, and Expression Blend, and fully integrates into Microsoft's IDE.

Since its release just over year ago, Xceed DataGrid for WPF has constantly been evolving into a solid, mature product, thanks to no less than ten releases, five of which have been major. Its community forum is highly active, with over 1,000 threads.

The free yet fully functional Express Edition of Xceed DataGrid for WPF offers a complete set of powerful features that fulfills the needs of most developers. This edition provides full distribution rights, free bugfixes and updates, and community support. Simply register to start using it. The Professional Edition is for the most demanding.
