AutoGrid complements the Grid panel by adding the following features:
- Auto indexing of children (based on the AutoIndexingGrid in the WPF SDK).
- Support for Vertical and Horizontal orientation of automatic indexing.
- Support for spanning.
- Automatic setting of the following properties of grid children: Margin, HorizontalAlignment, VerticalAlignment.
The AutoGrid is very convenient for creating tabular data input forms, which is a very common scenario. Since elements are auto indexed, it is very easy to modify the order of the fields or insert something in the middle.
