  • Hi Venkat Rao Doddi,

    This is Microsoft official forum, WPF forum does not support the question of third-party for “SfDataGrid”.

    You could post a new thread in their official web site: https://www.syncfusion.com/forums/wpf/sfdatagrid

    Thank your for your understanding.

    Best Regards,

  • In addition to Xavier's advice.

    I work on a lot of Line of Business applications where users request reporting.

    A while ago I noticed a common pattern in requirements.

    Users start off happy with stacks of data in a datagrid and use the sorting on the columns to pick the important stuff out.

    They're often familiar with excel and used to scrolling through lots of data.

    They ask for reports.

    I then used to give them flexible selection criteria to pick data for a Crystal or Microsoft report.

    They then say they like that flexible selection and can it be used on the datagrid?

    I realised a while back you want some way of filtering your datagrid so they only see a few records and then the users rarely use the column headers to sort.

    If you took the same approach you could use a report to show the underlying data a datagrid is bound to.

    This has a number of advantages, not the least of which is that you can use a reportviewer for print preview.

    I recommend Crystal reports unless the user picks dynamic columns in which case Microsoft reports since you can build the report definition as xml.

    SAP crystal reports is free and offers a xaml friendly reportviewer.

    Also a third part product, but there are forums and a lot of people have been using crystal for decades now because it used to come with visual studio. I'm one of them.


    Hope that helps.
