jQuery Grid 3.0

March 22nd, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m happy that at end the 3.0 version of jqGrid is out. The good news is that the full documentation is ready. It was a hard work for me since my English is not very good. I apologize if there are some errors and hope to correct them with a help of community.

    Hi there,

    Nice work again and the documentation is so easy to read, well done and thanks for the hard work!! So here’s my question (same as posted in “Grid 3 final preview”):

    Do you plan on introducing a mode that allows multiple select of rows based on drag/drop operation, i.e. via a transversal mouse drag across the grid ?

    Hi Nicolas,

    I really do not understand what you mean 🙁 . Sorry. If I look into the example that you publish in previous post I see that only particular cell is validated at server – nothing more.

    Please explain me in detail what you mean.

    Yes – this can be done via methods – showCol, hideCol – see documantation for more details

    Hi, first a huge thank is in order for this amazing plugin. Brilliant; thanks a lot.

    Now from the preview version to the final release, I am getting a slight problem with the method “sortGrid”;

    Data is fed using javascript; Records are not in order and while entering I would like to sort by the date field; Now I have tried setting “sortName” and “sortOrder” while initializing the grid which didn’t work. The way I had the preview version to work was to call “sortGrid” method before/after adding the data.

    for(var i=0;i<=mydata.length;i++) jQuery(“#smslog”).addRowData(i+1,mydata[i]);

    on final release, on loading the page, it is always displaying in ascending order; I have tried setting “setSortOrder” to both “asc”/”desc” without any luck; finally as a workaround I am using

    for(var i=0;i<=mydata.length;i++) jQuery(“#smslog”).addRowData(i+1,mydata[i]);

    Not very efficient; any idea?

    Also, calling the method “setSortName” is returning an error “p is null or not an object”


    thanks once again for this brilliant code.

    When I selected a data line time, how to get this data, there is a problem
    Initialization do not show how that data will only show a title, and then I click the right button in time that the data will show that there should be a boolean value!

    There is a bug in setSortName – it is corrected – Thank you.
    If you call setSortName or setSortOrder after that you should call trigger(“reloadGrid) to have this effect – that is:
    1. add data
    2.setSortName or/and setSortOrder
    3. trigger(“reloadGrid”)

    sortGrid do this at once.
    There is other issue with sorting which I should resolve.

    If data is local these methods should be called after the data is populated and not before. If you add data via addRowData grid does not recognize that data should be sorted when the row is added. With other words your first call of sortGrid is not needed.

    Maybe here is the solution

    onSelectRow: function (rowid) {

    mydata = jQuery(“#mygrid”).getRowData(rowid)
    // my data is array that have a selected row values


    For more information read API methods in Documentation section

    Hi Tony,

    where can I download the new release?

    As an idea, can we get onMouseOver as an event or perhaps a way to change the look of the alt tags : that would be awesome;

    Thanks once again.

    I plan to publish the bug fix release at end of this week.

    As for the altRows – you can change this in the css – see alt rows.
    If you want to do that dynamically you can make something like:
    $(“table.scroll tr.alt td”,”#mygridid”).css(“background-color”,”mycolor”)

    Documentation section
    hidegrid Type: boolean
    Enables or disables the hide grid button, which appear into the right side of the Caption layer. Have sense only if caption parameter is not empty string.
    Default value: true !

    how to hide grid? not hide gird button?
    When I JQGrid initialization time, how kind hidden Grid, show only Caption

    Hi Tony,

    My question in more details:

    Try going to this address: http://www.zapatec.com/website/main/products/grid/demo.jsp#editable_autosave_cell.html

    Now, with your mouse start from the upper left corner of the grid, hold down the mouse button and drag down to the bottom right corner.
    You will notice that a “rectangle selection“ (tranparent div with dashed border) draws over the rows wich activates an alternate state (color) for each row hovered in the grid.

    Well that’s what I mean. I’d like to enable users to “select” multiple consecutive rows.

    In the end my goal is to be able to re-arrange the grid by moving those selected rows up or down like in this example:
    but with multiple rows at a time.

    I’m describing it right ? Bear with me I’m french 😉
    Tx for your time.

    If you set a caption the button is displayed automatically according to the option hidegrid. If you do not set caption this options remain true, but the caption is not displayed.

    At end I understand what you mean 🙂 . I’m not sure that this will be done at near future, but you can try integrate the dragable plugin combined with loadComlete event – i.e. use loadComplete to bind dragging of each row.
