ThemedDataGrid and WPFToolkit's DataGrid vs. .NET 4.0 Datagrid

ThemedDataGrid inherits from the WPF Datagrid found in the WPFToolkit.dll.

Since MS released a similar (yet not identical) Datagrid with their .NET 4.0 release, is there any plan to remove the dependency on the WPFToolkit version? I understand that not everyone runs on .NET 4.0, but the internet seems to think that MS is abandoning WPFToolkit (and that it's pretty buggy), and it seems like just a placeholder until the .NET framework catches up.

Hi Mick,

Yes indeed.  The problem right now is that we currently target .NET 3.5 SP1 so we can't point to the .NET 4.0 one.  That being said, we announced a little while ago in our blog that the upcoming 2012.1 version moves our minimum requirements to .NET 4.0 and as such, we've already updated it to use the .NET 4.0 native one instead of the WPFToolkit one.

Hi Mick,

Also, our ThemedDataGrid is open sourced and available on CodePlex, so you can take our project and retarget it for .NET 4.

Hello, our control simply inherits the native WPF DataGrid with some theming extensions.  If you search the web for information how to use the native WPF DataGrid or post in Microsoft's forums, you should be able to get further assistance on how to do data binding.
