You have 300,000 rows of data you need to display in a grid. Loading
this in memory will take a long time to read and display, thus making your
customer wait during this entire process. That is if your current grid will even
support this much data.
Using Spread’s Virtual Mode, the display time
will be much faster, and the Spread control supports up to two billion rows and
two billion columns.
Virtual Mode allows Spread to hold in memory and
buffer a limited number of records at any given time. This feature greatly
decreases the amount of time it takes to populate the spreadsheet, giving your
customer a prompt display of your data.
For example, you can specify
that you want to load and display one screen’s worth of data at any given time.
Spread will fetch and display this data. When the user scrolls up or down,
Spread will request the additional data and display it at that time. Your
application no longer needs to load an entire file into memory at one time,
which means a faster application and happier customers.
