You can obtain and use DHTMLX components bundled or standalone. What's nice about using the Suite is that logic model of the components and API creation approach are similar - that simplifies understanding of the library and speeds up the development process.
Mutual integration of the components (for example, drag-n-drop between Tree, Grid and TreeGrid, or Windows integration into the Layout, Tabbar, or Accordion), in its turn, provides more opportunities for creation of user-friendly web interfaces. On top of that, DHTMLX framework provides skin inheritance, which means that a skin set for the Layout will be applied to the attached components as well.
DHTMLX - Reviews
We have discovered numerous bugs, some significant, and 1 a complete show stopper. The combobox will not allow entry of text not contained in the list portion of the control as the text is cleared when the control loses focus.
After several email nitrations, DHTMLX Support refused to understand the basic functionality of a combobox, and haphazardly deemed it as the “design” of the control. Only upon our refusal to accept that as a valid response, did they even acknowledge the bug. Then no commitment to when, or if it would be fixed.
After a few more more email cycles, attempting to escalate the matter to company leadership, we were told DHTMLX does not do Hot fixes, but that the bug was in the development queue, slated for a release in the next 2 months.
Based on the other bugs we have discovered, how the support treated us and how hard it is to communicate them, we have made a difficult decision to move away from the DHTMLX Suite.

Totally agreed; yes "what a breath of fresh air".
