Is there a DataGridView-derived or DataGridView-like grid for WinForms that shows both filters for each column and a summary row?

There is a CodeProject FilterableDataGrid and a CodeProject Summary DataGridView, but they can't be mixed together because FilterableDataGrid inherits from the obsolete DataGrid, while the Summary DataGridView inherits from DataGridView, so I can't make one inherit from the other.

What I'd like is a control that has the functionlity of both.


  • Winforms (not WPF).
  • Show both filters and a summary row.


  • Is free.
  • Filters allow searching by text, and for numeric and datetime columns searching by more, less or a range, in addition to just enumerating values.
