    I installed version upgraded from 3.8.2 to 4.0 and got a jQuery(“#listSales”).getPostData is not a function

    Doing a search on the 4.0 source file shows no result for ‘getPostData’ as a search term. Has this function been replaced (and if so by what) or is this a bug?
    Please advise

    Why don’t you guys implement minimum column width parameter for colmodel instead of having hard-coded value of 33px? :) i have to do it by myself with every update. It’s quite easy to do, and usefull. Looking forward for that feature.
    And thanks for your work again. Really best js tables component. Love it.

    Oh and i forgot one thing. When we have lot of columns, 20 for example, and 100 rows at page – we see very slow perfomance on horizontal scrolling. Column headers and cells become unsynchronized for a short time (and after short time they get back to normal align)

    Hi jqGrid DEV!

    Best free JS grid ever! Keep on good work, and please implement column freezing first :) Implementing PDF, XLS export can be done without jqGrid. I did export (in one of my projects) to PDF via tcpdf class, and Excel export by PHPExcel class – so it’s not so necessary to implement directly in jqGrid ;)

    Hi Wooya,
    I think the same as you that JQGrid should not further implement invest much effort into Excel export. PHPExcel is the better working and more professional choice. Since I use ZEND as datamodel there is even no chance to get the jqgrid run with excel export.
    One question: can you provide an example how you mastered to export the _full_ grid content into excel? There are only two examples out there:
    a) the one from qjGrid-Team. This approach can export the all data but needs to build db-select statements (which is not a good approach if one has OR-mappers in use)
    b) the one from stackoverflow. This approach only exports the visible data that are present currently at the client.
    I understood that you have some other solution?

    Hello,

    I am Jason and I represent the most trusted low-cost web hosting reviews in the market.
    I am really amused with the way you present your ideas/concepts on your site.

    Would you be open in discussing a sensible business proposal or some sort of sponsorship?

    Thanks,

    Since the forum seems somewhat unreadable currently (lines are just trailing off the side of the screen), I’m posting this here as well:

    It appears there has been in a change in handling for column width in the new version. In past versions, jqGrid used the defined width to set the column width *including* any margin/padding. Now, the column itself is given the full width assigned in the colModel, with the margin and padding added on. Would it be possible to add a setting to toggle it back to the old behavior? It’s much easier to get the grid to align with other fields on-screen when the column sizes include the extra spaces, and I would prefer not to have to update the colModel for every grid just to get them back to displaying as they used to.

    Thanks for all of your continued work on this project.

    Hi jqGrid DEV!
    Best free JS grid ever!..

    It’s confusing to me. On site there is section Licencing/Pricing. You say that it is free. I don’t understand. Is jqGrid free?

    @Иван
    Иван, сам грид бесплатен, платным является его серверная реализация для PHP, ASP – т.е. компоненты.

    When i upgraded to 4.0.0 the add button in the grid is functional for 1 time. When the button is clicked for the second time, the application gives a error.

    What is the reason for that error?

    You folks are doing some amazing work. It would be good if you’ll can separate JqGrid plugin from the commercial product.

    I’m using SELECT based approach. I’m building a dynamic query based on filters used at current grid and then exporting to XSLX file via PHPExcell class.

    Hi.
    There is a bug in a function fillData(). There is a fragment:
    if(fld && fld[0] !== null) {

    }
    , where even if fld is an empty array, fld[0] !== null returns true and first of the “fld[0]….” calls inside that if block fails. You should use different comparison.
    Sorry I posted it here instead of forum, but I’m just lazy to register.

    @Hanno Schupp

    Similar issue. After an upgrade to 4.0, the function setPostDataItem() is not recognized.

    Does anyone actually monitor and respond here?

    jQuery(”#grid_id”).jqGrid(‘setPostData’, newdata)
    jQuery(”#grid_id”).jqGrid(‘appendPostData’, newdata)

    are both replaced by

    jQuery(”#grid_id”).jqGrid(‘setGridParam’,{postData:newdata})

    Both can not be replaced by exactly the same function???? As a matter of fact, the replacement is only the equivalent to appendPostData, but where is the right syntax for the setPostData ?

    Hello Tony,

    The multiple language support doesn’t work in the new search module, i.e. select options and button’s titles… This is sure quite easy to fix. It would help if you define the variables with default values and update the locale files later. When can the community expect the first bug fix (4.1) and the documentation update?
    Thanks for the grate plugin!

    I had a problem with jqGrid4 in FF with jQuery 1.6. I had an edit form with “checkbox” field and I wasn’t able to save “on” value if it was checked. It saved “off” regardless of if it was checked in or out. I found out that the problem was in function getFormData, in the fragment:
    ——————–
    case “checkbox”:
    if($(this).attr(“checked”)) {
    postdata[this.name]= $(this).val();
    }else {
    var ofv = $(this).attr(“offval”);
    postdata[this.name]= ofv;
    }
    break;
    —————-
    Problem is, that $(this).attr(“checked”) returns “undefined” even if checkbox is checked. I have replaced it with $(this).is(“:checked”) to get a correct results. $(this).val() returns “on”, as expected.

    I am trying to use the Formatter plugin to support desired date format, like “Y-m-d H:i:s”, with the inline editor. But the checkDate function inside grid.common.js will not take it. How should I handle the date invalidation? It looks to me that I can only display the date in a specific format, but input.

    @teto
    Hi, I think you need to use jquery 1.6.1 because 1.6.0 removed some of “checked” events. But 1.6.1 I hear they made the events back like they used to be.

    But also, jqgrid 4.0 is compatible with 1.5.2, but not officially with 1.6+ yet I think.

    Hi,
    Recently I upgraded my JQGrid version from 3.8 to 4.3. In this upgrade am facing date format issue, because I have used the below mentioned format functions
    $.jgrid.formatter.date.srcformat=’d/m/y’;
    $.jgrid.formatter.date.newformat=’m/d/Y’;
    After upgrade I am getting the resultant format as NaN/NaN/NaN. Can you please let me know what needs to be done to resolve this issue?

    Thanks in advance :)
