I have nothing against Infragistics...well, that's not true. I have a love/hate relationship with them. Their controls are powereful, but the deployment issues with VS.NET 2003 are just annoying.

I'm wondering if anyone has used any of the other control suites out there, and if anyone can recommend one. I'm wanting to start trying out some alternatives to avoid some of the headache we're experincing in the current project happening in the future.

We have had bad experiences with ComponentArt, I wouldn't recommend them. 6/21/2006 7:12 AM | Steven R

Deployment issues indeed. I've also had good exp with devExpress, but I have recently decided to drop all third part components from my apps (esp. web apps) and roll my own - and have systematically been replacing all of my Infragistics asp grid code. I see the light, I just wish our company had our $1500 back :-).

Longer development, but FAR less maintenance headaches. .02c 6/23/2006 9:14 PM | Hal
