has shipped Web Forms 3
, a component that adds full-featured spreadsheet capabilities or highly advanced grid functionality to ASP.NET applications.
frees you from spending tedious hours coding features that are missing in other grids. In Spread for Web Forms
, many of those features are only a property setting or line of code away.
Complied against both the 1.1 and 2.0 Frameworks, Spread for Web Forms
is a complete ASP.NET spreadsheet component that supports bound or unbound modes (no dataset needed), AJAX, native Microsoft Excel import/export, in-cell editing, multiple edits on multiple rows without server round trips, client-side column/row resizing, multiple sheets, searching, filtering, multiple cell types, validations, cell spans, multiple headers, sorting, complete customization at the cell level, over 300 built-in calculation functions, hierarchical display and much more.
Written from the ground up in C#, Spread for Web Forms
provides an easy and reliable, feature-rich, user-friendly online experience, while giving enabling an extensive spreadsheet feature set.
The product includes client-side scripting support for Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, and Spread Designer to easily customize the control at design-time.
The Load on Demand paging feature allows the Web page to load on demand. As the user scrolls further down the spreadsheet the FarPoint Spread component on the client loads another page of rows from the server as needed. This is similar to what was called "virtual mode" in the COM version of the product.
You can specify the number of rows to load initially and how many are added in subsequent loads. You can specify these properties at the component level (for FpSpread) or at the sheet level.
With Grouping, you can set up the display to allow Outlook-style grouping of rows. For large amounts of data, this is helpful to display the data in the order the user needs.
The user selects columns by which to sort and the component then organizes and displays the data in a hierarchy with rows organized accordingly.
With Conditional Formatting, you can set up conditional formats within cells that determine the formatting of the cell based on the outcome of a conditional statement. Use a named style to specify various formatting options such as borders and colors to apply if the condition statement is valid.
New Calculation Engine features and improvements include
- GoalSeeking capability
- COLUMN function
- ROW function
- VALUE function
