Aspose Cells GridWeb compatibility with GridWeb

Hi Aspose Team,

We need to implement the GridWeb control in our MVC project.Is Aspose Cells GridWeb control MVC compatible or not ?

Thanks,
VED

Hi,

Well, I think the MVC framework is rather more like a model view or a controller. I am afraid, Aspose.Cells.GridWeb control or any other such kind of custom .NET web control is like a webform/container which has some differences as compared to MVC framework, so, I am afraid, it cannot be directly used on MVC. Moreover, in Aspose.Cells.GridWeb, we use "ViewState" in the code and I think Asp.Net MVC does not support "ViewState". See the document for your general reference on MVC framework's compatibility with Asp.NET server controls:

Thank you.
