Silverlight 2 DataGrid December 2008 Release


We are very happy to get out a bug-fix release of the Silverlight 2 DataGrid.  It should be very easy to simply drop this into your project and the get the benefits of a bunch of bug fixes..

This updated DataGrid contains almost 30 fixes to the top issues that we heard, including:

  • Rows containing focus no longer disappear when the ItemsSource changes
  • ComboBox and other controls opening a popup now work as expected
  • DataGrid Selection is preserved when sorting
  • Buttons outside the DataGrid work as expected when they are clicked while the DataGrid is in editing mode
  • Improved FrozenColumn behavior
  • Improved cell currency
  • SelectedItem is updated before the CurrentCellChanged event is raised
  • Many more…

For the full list of fixes check out this post by Brian Braeckel one of our DataGrid developers.

You can find full install instructions and more information on Scott Morrison’s blog

  8. My latest in a series of the weekly, or more often, summary of interesting links I come across related to Visual Studio. Greg Duncan posted a link to the Silverlight Spy release . The application shows the structure of a Silverlight application. Similar

    There is only one bug fix required, and it applies to entire Silverlight 2, and 3:

    It is a memory and performance hog, eating quad core machines.

    Unusable for anything but toy demos and it is incredible that with all the DirectX and OpenGL acceleration you cannot bring it down to something meaningful like:

    A button, a grid 12columnsx4000 rows to take 10MB of RAM as it should, inclusive of CLR. Why oh why.. when it can be all done in 1MB.. why pay 100MB, plus the browser.. unusable.
