Is there any User experience(UX) design guideline document available for Web platform grid control? I am developing ASP.NET grid control and wanted to know if there is anything already available. I searched it in google and this Stackoverflow site, I couldnt find it.

Are you referring to guidelines for any web-based data grid? Is there something you're looking for in particular? – GotDibbs Aug 6 '12 at 15:32
I need it especially for Microsoft related web related controls such as ASP.NET or ASP.NET MVC. – sankar Aug 14 '12 at 12:22

Yes, there is, or kind of. Microsoft (MSDN) have released Walkthrough: Accessibility Guidelines for Using the GridView Control - which is a part of User Experience.

This walkthrough shows how to use the GridView control in ways that help make a Web page accessible for people who use screen reader software. These techniques can help you meet the following Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 guideline: Separating structure from presentation (WCAG guideline 1.3).

If not comprehensive - it's a good start.
