Grids for WPF Forum

Hi, just a general question really. I was just wondering if there were any planned updates or rewrites to the WPF propertygrid coming up? 

We've just had to switch back to the WinForms property grid because we found data-binding to the Actipro WPF version was too slow for us and caused pauses in the rest of the application. Profiling showed it taking a while to "measure" elements to fit it on screen.

The problem we have now is that the properties grid is fast but it looks rubbish because it is WinForms and the rest of our application is WPF.

Thanks.

Hi Gareth,

Yes, the current WPF dev plan is to start with the TreeListBox control (similar to the VS Solution Explorer) that is in development and being discussed on Slack.  Please continue to visit our Slack #uicontrols channel and give feedback there.

Then evolve that into a TreeListView control (possibly making it a separate control), and then work towards rewriting PropertyGrid using that previous tree control as a foundation.  We're making sure the core mechanisms are very fast and fully use virtualization.  We expect the future PropertyGrid rewrite to harness all those advancements and be very fast itself.
