I am to design a table(grid) which is editable/sortable and has standard AJAX refresh calls.

I have being using Nitobi but we are planning to move away from it since it is a paid software.

What do you guys use, any thoughts on which is the best in class now ?

YUI has on, JQuery plug-ins has them, Ext [paid] has one, Dojo has one, I have one [some day it will be open sourced].

You can find grids all over the place. They all do different things, they all perform differently, they may or may not be accessible.

Thanks Eric..

I have tried dojo & YUI so far and they both pretty much do the same thing. In fact, I didnt want my grid (other than ajax updates/edit/sort) to do too much but I wanted to use a framework which I can extend to use other features like tabstrips and so on.

I feel more comfortable in dojo land since the YUI syntax looks different from what I am used to (or is it because I have a done a little bit of dojo's earlier)

Anyways, so far I am leaning towards using the dojo grid. Its just that I am not too happy about the default skins that it provides.
