Win32 Grid - ZeeGrid - PreRelease - Free for Everyone
« on: December 25, 2015, 06:00:13 pm »
Hello Everyone.

I am finishing up the preparation of my ZeeGrid, the successor to BabyGrid, and have decided to release it freely instead of commercially.  I am wondering if any of you would like to try it out with Pelles C.  It is more than 98% complete and I'd be interested to know how easily it can be integrated into other Programming platforms.  I am not a Pelles C user.  But I have designed this grid control to be used by any language.  The LoadLibrary() function is all that is needed to load the control.  From then on, it's strictly handled with SendMessage() functions.  It's fast.  It's clean.  It's easy to use and program.

If anyone is interested in trying it out, reply here and I'll post a download link.  At this point in the development, I'm just trying to find and fix any inconsistencies, and the more people analyzing it the better.  Those of you who have worked with BabyGrid and tried to improve on it, know that the development of a grid control just about exceeds the limitation of a single person.  Part of this is design decisions would benefit greatly from multiple users and a consensus deciding the final direction.

So ZeeGrid did not just disappear, never to be seen again.  It's just been under quiet development, for more than 10 years, getting better all the time.  You are welcome to use it.

Thanks for your interest.

Hello David,
welcome on PellesC forum.
I think that like myself a lot of people here are interested in a new grid control, and everybody will be glad to help as they can.
Thanks for sharing.  :)

Thanks for the reply.  I am finishing up documentation for it.  I will get the website working in just a few hours.  I will post again with the URL.

Hi Everybody,

It won't be the prettiest website you've ever seen.  This was written in Notepad.  It should be refreshing though, as there are no ads and crazy HTML.

You can get ZeeGrid from http://www.kycsepp.com

Hello David,

I'm glad to see that Zgrid is available again! 8) My own version of the Baby Grid, while suiting my needs, fell far short of the kind of flexibility of some of the MFC based grid controls.  I look forward to trying out this revision  when I get some time.

Regards,
David MacDermot

Nice :)
One exported function could be good to make possible to make reference to that dll thru import lib.
May the source be with you

David,
  I see you have an updated release which includes a 64bit version.

Preliminary tests have been promising.

Could be interesting if it could have a *.lib file for linking library
Can the control display images?
I should be very interested, but post an example.
Is it a virtual listview?

It seems simple to use but all the possibilities are not in the tutorial.
How many maximum rows/cols?
I would like to use it for showing the images informations but I can have 15500 images. I will not display the images, but 1500 rows with 30 columns is it supported. I have generated more than 50 000 rows in my phase test.
This library would be useful for me but without any informations...
At the first glance, it seems a good work.
Is is possible to ownerdraw?
