The Extended Silverlight Toolkit is a collection of Silverlight controls made available outside the normal Silverlight Toolkit. This first release includes advanced DataGrid and ListBox controls.

What's in the 1.0.0 Release?

These controls are built from the ground up with an asynchronous architecture. They feature virtualized background data retrieval, with active pre-fetching. As a result, your app's UI never freezes, even with slow remote data sources, and users don't have to wait when paging up or down, because on-demand queries are avoided.

DataGrid also features:
  • Fluid smooth scrolling, column reordering, group collapse/expand
  • Rich in-place editing
  • Beautiful data grouping with navigation and search
  • Lots os other capabilities
ListBox also features:
  • Fluid smooth scrolling
  • API-compatible. Drop-in replacement for the stock Silverlight listbox
  • Powerful grouping, navigation, and filtering
  • Try it now! Here's the commercial version of the ListBox in action here
