    Clear search is broken. len = $t.p.colModel.lenght is misspelled.

    $(“.clearsearchclass”,tr).click(function() {
    var ptr = $(this).parents(“tr:first”),
    colname = $(“td.ui-search-oper”, ptr).attr(‘columname’), coli=0, len = $t.p.colModel.lenght;
    while(coli<len) {
    if($t.p.colModel[coli].name === colname) {

    Thanks. I noticed there was another change in the updated source file, but the minified file has not been updated as well. Can the minified file be updated?

    if(fld.srcfmt && fld.newfmt && fld.srcfmt !== fld.newfmt ) {

    … as opposed to …

    if(typeof fld.srcfmt === “string” && typeof fld.newfmt === “string” ) {

    From where you get the code (I mean from where you have downloaded it)

  5. August 22nd, 2019 at 16:39 | #5

    The expression:

    if(fld.srcfmt && fld.newfmt && fld.srcfmt !== fld.newfmt ) {

    is wrong, since in case if the srcfmt = ‘d/m/Y’ = newfmt = ‘d/m/Y’ will give wrong result

    I downloaded from http://guriddo.net/?page_id=103292

    To be clear the version change I have in the source has…
    if(typeof fld.srcfmt === “string” && typeof fld.newfmt === “string” ) {

    The minified version does not have this change.

    1) getDataIDs not working in 5.4.0 — Is there any alternative implemented to get row IDs in gridComplete.

    2) Autocomplete in dataInit not showing the suggestion list. element always set to display none.

    Both the above were working fine in jqgrid 4.4.4. But, those are not working in 5.4.0

    quick help is appreciated.
