Sorry, for my late response.
Thanks for the answers so far.We are interested to know what features of C1DataGrid that you are using and we can help you replace it with FlexGrid?
We still don't know, we are in a very early phase of evaluating if .NET 5 is possible or not, it will most likely take some time before we can have an in-depth look into this topic.
We were just surprised to see the announcment, since we are only using C1DataGrid, our project is 10 years old, so I actually can't even tell you why we chose the C1DataGrid over the C1FlexGrid that long ago.
Though after reading the comparison Ruchir.Agarwal shared, I was surprised to read that C1FlexGrid supports "bound mode" I had thought that it only supports "unbound mode" did that change over time, or am I just remembering incorrectly?It's also worth noting that we will continue to support our .NET 4.5.2 controls in .NET 5 apps, so in the meantime, you can continue to use that version when you first migrate to .NET 5, and then replace the controls down the road when/if C1DataGrid is ported, or you find a way to replace it.
Can you elaborate what the disadvantages of using 4.5.2 controls in a .NET 5 project would be?
This would certainly help us with our decision, since C1DataGrid is heavily used in our project, and doing both the transition to .NET 5 and replacing C1DataGrid with C1FlexGrid will be hard to sell to my superiors.
