Simply drag-and-drop a WebGrid instance from the toolbox onto the designer window, and start working. The SmartTag provides quick access to all the commands needed to bind the WebGrid to a data source control.

As Microsoft’s ASP.NET AJAX continues to grow in popularity, many developers are understandably concerned about potential difficulties in deploying it side by side with the OnTheFlyPostBack® engine. Rest assured, we are intimately familiar with the capabilities of AJAX technology, and our engineers have worked diligently to ensure that all Intersoft components fully support ASP.NET AJAX, including WebGrid. This means that you can use WebGrid in your existing AJAX enabled website with no changes to WebGrid or to your existing code. You can also safely put WebGrid inside an Update Panel with no fear of conflicts. As both AJAX and OnTheFlyPostBack® continue to grow and evolve, we will also continue to ensure that they remain compatible, protecting your valuable investment in development resources.
