jqGrid 3.5 Alfa 3

Happy to introduce the alfa 3 of jqGrid 3.5. This is the last alfa release. Beta will be published soon.
There are a couple of changes. The full list of changes will be published with the beta release.
Important changes in alfa 3.
– ARIA ready (this can be discussed in the future)
– UI Dialog will not be supported (excluded from alfa3). I have made a decision to make own modal (at end).

In order to process easy user contributions I have publish the source code to GitHub.

The link to the updated demo can be found here

    “What does it mean? I can’t use jqGrid in a ui-dialog?”
    You can use UI Dialog wher you want, but jqGrid does not use UI Dialog for the modals

    Is there a way of doing a “show” using the modals.
    In legacy apps I convert, I usually have way two many rows to put in a grid, so usually I put enough
    to identify the row in the grid, then use a show for the rest of the detail.

    Is it possible to avoid instant record addition/updation and instead can be done in a batch mode.

    For instance, when i add a record, its instantly saved to Database through Ajax call which is defined in JqGrid on ready event. Instead is it possible to post all the data that are available in the JQGrid based on a form submit or onclick event ?

    Tony, i was using 3.5 alfa-2 and everything was going well. And well beyond expectation great plugin!!

    I upgraded to 3.5 alfa-3 and i have some showstoppers issues:

    1. I have an overlay on top of my grid.
    2. If i set navGrid with the most basic setting (search and refresh) i always have an modal window (Please select a row) after initial loading.
    3. i’m not able to edit anything and the layout is completely off compared to alfa-2.

    In simple words, it’s unusable!! Is there anything i’m missing? i completey replaced the js jqgrid folder and reset the include path. I dont use the css provided since already loaded a theme with a different plugin (accordion menu).

    i’ll check the version of jquery i’m using but was there a change? i’m not using the jquery-ui-1.7.1.custom.min.js since i need pretty much everything from jquery somewhere in my application.

    Any idea? I din’t find any post giving a solution to Timothy Farrar.

    Ok found it!
    Location of css file (ui.jqgrid.css) had changed yes i know it was obvious. :-). Never thought that a css file could have that impact.

    Have a nice day and keep up the excellent work!

    I’ve just started using jqGrid, and think it is a fantastic pluggin, so great work on that.

    The problem I am having is that I am embedding the jqGrid inside of a UI-Dialog, but it seems to me that the generated grid isn’t selectable.. it seems to be behind an overlay or something..

    Any suggestions?

    Am also facing the same problem. css is getting applied but no images…

    I’m not sure how css can be applied but no images. In my case, the css file was not loading at all since the path was incorrect.

    I’m using IE 6. I have the same problem. It shows ‘warning’ popup, but “please select row” message is not displaying. It’s working fine in firefox 3.0. Did you solve that issue?

    “Found an issue in IE7 while clicking the “Edit”/”Delete” icons from the navigation menu. If I don’t select any record on the grid, the “Warning” message pops-up with no text in it. Checked the same page in Google Chrome, the “Warning” message text is displayed.”

    Shiva, did you figure out how to do this?

    I want to use a jqGrid as part of a more complicated form, but I don’t want to do updating on the server until the entire form is complete. The reason is that the form will contain child objects and they can’t be added to the server before the parent. Is there a way to submit the contents of the jqGrid as part of form on the rest of the page?

    Dear all,

    I am using 3.5 version and I am trying to implement a tree.
    I have placed the below code:

    treeGrid: true,
    ExpandColumn: ‘title’,
    autowidth: true,
    ExpandColClick: true,
    treeIcons: {leaf:’ui-icon-document-b’},
    onSelectRow: function(id) {
    //my business logic

    When I load or refresh my page I cannot see any images in the ‘title’ column.
    I have include all the specified css files and images.

    could you please advice?

    Thanks in advance.
