    Hi –
    Sounds like you have addressed a whole load of issues here. That’s good news. I wonder if this fixes the 500 server error that’s raised if the ShowEditValidationMessage method is called?

    Thank you, especially for grouping headers!
    (we almost started to fork project to make own grouping)

    “Allow user to override request method for inline edits (GET,POST) – i.e added mtype parameter”

    Bless you, I spent hours hacking a solution to make the inline edits more REST friendly. Now I just have to figure out how to undo them with the new version.

    Thank you for all new versions. 🙂

    Example for feature “header grouping” is in demos under “Grouped header row config” example?

    I have a problem with the search on a field with autocomplete; the variable filters is like this:
    filters: “{“groupOp”:”AND”,”rules”:[{“field”:”descr”,”op”:”eq”,”data”:””}]}”
    attr ‘data’ isn’t valorized.

    Tree grid group row does not actually expand the group when is_expanded is returned in the XML data. The group row shows an “down arrow” icon as if it is expanded, but it is not actually expanded. I found a comment somewhere that mentioned a 5th extra field in the XML for isLoaded. If I return that with a value of true, then the group expands as it used to do. Is this a new required field in the XML or is this a bug in tree grid? I doo not see it referenced in the wiki. Thanks.

    I just downloaded 4.2.0. Testing it with existing code. I do a delete with reloadAfterSubmit: false. When I delete I now get an error: G.split is not a function – on line 318 of the min file – any idea why?

    Thanks a lot for the header grouping feature. Though it was a much anticipated feature that was announced to be rolled out soon to users, I was surprised to see it released so soon. Thanks a lot jqGrid Team. This plugin rocks!

    How to implement a setGridHeight passing the available height where the whole grid will expand? setGridWith works fantastic, but adjusting the grid height is a pain… right there.

    Why not to include such very asked functionality?
