ComponentOne grids are relied upon by banks and other financial institutions for high-performance, high-throughput data visualization and manipulation. In some financial applications it becomes necessary to merge cells, similar in functionality to popular spreadsheet applications, in order to enable the user to work with data in a form-like fashion.
