50,000 records in grid

This sample demonstrates how dhtmlxGrid works with rather big amount of data (50,000 records).
We have put 50,000 records into a table in a Mysql database filled with random words. dhtmlxGrid using Ajax loads visible records only.
When user is scrolling, dhtmlxGrid automatically loads new records from database and displays them. When user is scrolling back, records that have been already loaded are taken from cache.
If user wants to make a search (just enter some word into input fields), grid sends search criteria to server and loads just corresponding to entered criteria data.

Important: sample is working with real data - 50.000 records, but this is not the limit! Enjoy its performance and imagine how it could be used in your product.
