More on live grids : DHTMLXGRID

We 've covered Jquery, extjs and DOJO 's grid : even though they all cover a gerat amount of features, none of them opensource celebrities can compete with chaklf GPL half commercial DHTMLXGRID, that delivers all features you can expect from a modern HTML AJAX powered Grid : buffered data (unlimited scrolling), editable fields with rich in-cell editing, fixed multiline headers/footers, resizable, sortable and draggable columns, built-in filtering, searching and grouping capabilities. Numerous event handlers let you add necessary interactivity to grid-based interfaces .The only drawback to relying on such vendors is that one day -it's probably a matter of weeks- the opensource geeks will be up to date, including many more functions and compatibility guarantees. In the meanwhile, if you can't afford to wait, go for DHTMLXGRID with GPL license. If you plan to switch technologies, make sure your server side data delivery complies to standards datasources supported by most javascript grids, such as XML or JSON.
