Default Unbound Grids


Hi Im very very New to VB.Net (Just Started-Today, I have experiance in VB6). Therefore I came a cross some very basic doubts

I want to use a unbound grid to display my records. While I was searching a grid, I saw 3 different grids. One is Datagrid (Can I use for unboud), List view and MsFlexGrid.

MsFlex grid is from COM Components. It is exactly same as VB6. If I use this component, Do I need to additionaly do a separate setup for installation ?

And is there any flexible grid is available for Unbound purpose ?

Pls direct the correct path

Thanks
Raj

Using COM components is generally frowned on in .Net

Which means Using COM component is not advisable or Not recommended.
Then Which is the better alternative grid ? Can I use data grid or Listview. I want to make editable and showing date control on grid cell


Pls advice

You can't use it in unbound mode, but if you don't want to use an ADO.Net dataset, you can create your own custom class that implements IList (or IListSource) and bind the data grid to that, essentially giving you all the control of unbound mode.
