Release Notes

First release of this assembly includes SPPagedGridView control.
It is a grid view that looks and behaves like a tree view. It inherits from SPGridView and overrides a few properties of base class to allow custom paging. It should be very usefull in cases where very large result sets should be displayed but not all of the results should be retrieved from data store at once.
The first release is fully tested on MOSS 2007 but test projects are still not included in solution (will come soon).

The Idea
I needed a paged grid control on one of the projects I was involved in recently. It was a MOSS 2007 project, I wanted the grid to look similar to MOSS 2007 grids so my first choice was SPGridView control. When I tried the control I saw its built-in paging functionality is not suitable for my needs because SPGridView expects the whole result set and then it does the paging automatically. Because of very large result set that my grid should show in MOSS that was not a solution for me. Therefore I started looking for a solution that will allow me a kind of custom paging where only results that should be shown on a current page are retrieved from data stored and assigned to grid control.
I couldn't find one but I remembered that I used once a similar grid control published on CodeProject by Fadrian Sudaman (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/aspnet/GridViewNeatPaging.aspx). I used similar idea, created my own control that inherits from SPGridView and decided to share that with Microsoft community.
