Spread makes it easy to create a prototype quickly or to customize your finished
designs using the built-in Designers and Wizards.
You can quickly design a spreadsheet component using the Spread Designer.
Whether you are prototyping a complete spreadsheet component or simply customizing
some aspect of an existing spreadsheet component, the dedicated graphical interface
offers many features to save time and effort. It also provides a way for you to
add data to and set properties for the component, including properties that are
not available at design time in Visual Studio.
You can set both design-time and run-time properties. In most cases you can preview
changes before applying them to the spreadsheet. Once all the changes are made,
you apply the changes to the spreadsheet component on your form.
With the Spread Designer, customizations can be made quickly and easily. Spread
Designer lets you make just about any customization to the spreadsheet component
as well as add shapes to improve the user interface. There are dozens of built-in
shapes and the ability to customize them.
The Spread Designer also allows you to save your work to a file and share that file
with others or use it as a template. You can save your design as a file and open
files of previous work or from another team member from within Spread Designer.

data binding, headers and footers, grouping and titles, columns, the scroll bar

when you are finished.
