datagrid modern HTML/Design and Jquery
the datagrid Features are quite ok, But the wizards and the generated HTML ist still the 2.0 stuff.
Webforms is still the fastest way to bring data to the browser. If you dont need full control or tests webforms should get some design improvements, html code optimizations and jquery Background refresh.
The GridView and ListView controls allow for quite a lot of customization when it comes to what they render. Is your suggestion particularly focusing on the markup generated by the wizards in Visual Studio or the HTML generated by the control at runtime itself?
