A datagrid control that can be personalized... anyone??


Hello all,

I need a datagrid control that has following features, besides other regular stuff like paging, sorting, filtering, etc:

The user should be able to -

1. Select columns to view

2. Select column Sequence

3. Select default sort column

4. Store the setting (as a view) and use it on next visit.

5. llow multiple such views to be stored for a user for future use.

All these settings should be saved and when the user comes back he gets the same settings.

Really appreciate your time and would love to get any ideas.
