    The following quick start guide is intended to get you up and running with the FlexGrid control. In this quick start, you'll start by creating a new MAUI application, add the FlexGrid control to it, and bind it with a data source.

    The following image displays the FlexGrid control showing the customer details, such as First Name, Last Name, Address, City etc.

    Setup the App

    1. In Visual Studio, create a new .NET MAUI App. For detailed steps, see Configure MAUI Application.
    2. In the Solution Explorer, right click Dependencies and select Manage NuGet Packages.
    3. In NuGet Package Manager, select as the Package source.
    4. Search and select the following package and click Install.
      • C1.Maui.Grid
    5. Register the FlexGrid control by adding the following line of code to the CreateMauiApp method in MauiProgram.cs file.
      Copy Code

    Configure the References and the FlexGrid control

    1. Declare the required namespaces using the following code in XAML:
      Copy Code
    2. Place the cursor between the <ContentPage></ContentPage> tags to add the FlexGrid control using the following code:
      Copy Code
      <c1:FlexGrid x:Name="grid" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
              <c1:GridColumn Binding="FirstName" />
              <c1:GridColumn Binding="LastName" />
              <c1:GridColumn Binding="City"/>
              <c1:GridColumn Binding="Country"/>
              <c1:GridColumn Binding="Active"/>
    3. Switch from XAML to C# code view and bind the FlexGrid control to a datasource. Here, we use the Customer class added to the Data folder of the application.
      Copy Code
      var data = Customer.GetCustomerList(20);
      grid.ItemsSource = data;
