On Monday, the WPF team released the CTP of their new datagrid control. You can download it from here. [Note that it requires .NET 3.5 SP1, released monday too] I have been playing with it so I created this 3 part series. Part 1 (this write-up) is about the features in the grid and the ones missing from it. Part 2 is a hands-on exercise to apply the features to customize the presentation of data (aka view) of the datagrid. Part 3 includes a few tips & tricks on customizing/styling the datagrid. The source for this sample is here. Getting Started was trivial. I got the bits from codeplex, created a new WPF application, and added a reference to the WPFToolkit.dll. From my Window1.xaml, I added the xmlns declaration so I could refer to the datagrid. No need to map the assembly, the tools do that for you.
