If you’re not using DevExpress, Start!

ActiveDataTools is a Windows application that helps manage, convert and cleanse data. Using ActiveDataTools, you can read and write dozens of popular data formats, correct and format data, query and filter information and quickly validate datasets. The system contains hundreds of ways to manage data, like correcting padding and letter case, making date formats consistent, correcting number fields and more.

The central component of ActiveDataTools is the grid. Because of this, we spent a huge amount of time researching all the grid components available in the market place. We even considered writing our own but quickly realised that that just wouldn’t have been feasible!

We downloaded and installed many components and spent a long time building test scenarios. After reviewing as many different grid components as possible, we quickly established that there was only ever going to be one choice for us – XtraGrid by Developer Express. XtraGrid is clearly the most powerful grid component available. Not only can it handle huge data sets incredibly quickly, but the number of end-user customisation options is staggering. From dynamic groups and sorts to filters and summaries, there is virtually no limit to the ways in which our customers are able to present their data.

Of course, all these features are automatically built in to our product, meaning that we are delivering these powerful options straight to our users.
