A Tale of Two Grids

If you buy RAD Studio XE5, Delphi XE5 or C++Builder XE5 between now and the end of the year, then you get both the InfoPower XE5 VCL Grid and components, as well as the InfoPower XE4 FireMonkey grid! The InfoPower grid by Woll2Woll is one of the best grids for VCL application development, and has been for years. It is great to see the InfoPower grid now on FireMonkey. With these two grids your apps can have the best grid ever, on any platform we support: Windows, OS X, iOS and Android.

I made a little video showing some of the features. Also you can download the InfoPower grid demo for Android from the Google Play store. Install it on your Android device today and check out the potential.

Downloaded InfoPower grid demo and tried on a 2013 Nexus 7 with KitKat 4.4.2. Unimpressive, though this is probably mostly the fault of FireMonkey. A 40MB download, choppy horizontal scrolling, and sorting by column works intermittently.

I tested on a 2013 Nexus 7 and the scrolling was very smooth (the video doesn’t do it justice). You can dramatically reduce your binary size by switching to release mode. Sometimes you can improve performance by terminating other apps that are running in the background. Android usually does a good job of that, but sometimes it gets out of hand, especially if there are games ran recently.
