Feature Request: OwnerDraw event in certain cases

Post by stoffman » Fri Mar 25, 2022 8:57 am

Please enable user OwnerDraw event for the following situations:

1. Before any datasource is attached to the grid
2. When the datasource is attached but is *empty*
3. When data is being fetched from the server (so you can have "Loading..." text or animation)

For example, see the difference for use case number 2 (empty results), even with my limited skills it looks much more user friendly when you can display a clear message inside the grid area.

Hello,

We'll look at the best places to add the callbacks and prepare a test version.
