Guriddo jqGrid JavaScript 5.0 is released

August 3rd, 2015 6 comments

Hello All,

We are pleased to announce the new Guriddo jqGrid 5.0 release. This release is a cornerstone in our job. We plan great new features and improvements in the future like Node.js port, JavaScript exporting to PDF and much more.

In addition to adding native Bootstrap support to the grid, we’ve also added a lot of improvements to our pivot and tree grid features, improved support for the latest jQuery releases (2.1.x), intensive tests with jQuery 3.0 future release, provided better experience for mobile users adding a responsive option and fixed more than 20 bugs. Here are the highlights:

Native Boostrap Support

As of version 5.0 Guriddo jqGrid can be adapted easy with any CSS framework. We have develoed a Bootstrap port. To use the feature you will need only to include the appropriate CSS

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="path_to_css_files/ui.jqgrid-bootstrap.css" />

file and tell jqGrid to use Bootstrap – with the option:

$("#grid").jqGrid( {
styleUI : "Bootstrap",

Except Column Chooser and re sizing the grid with a mouse we support all the jqGrid existing features.

You can enjoy the Guriddo jqGrid Bootstrap Demo

Independent CSS Styling

We have changed our code so that jqGrid can be developed with any CSS framework. This can be achieved with a setting of the styleUI object to use the appropriate classes. The full description will be added into the documentation.

Responsive Grid
We have added a responsive options which make the grid a really responsive.
With this options the grid is re sized automatically when the device is rotated and the windows width is changed. Another useful feature is auto calculating the the space of the navGrid buttons – if the space does not fith the grid width we create a drop dawn menu button where all actions are inserted.


We added new events and a method called reloadNode. With this method is possible to reload only certain node data and put it into the treeGrid instead of reloading the entrie treeGrid which in some situations consume a lot of time.

The code below reloaded only the added or edited node (Form editing module)

var reloadnode = function (rowid, rowdata, rowobject)
var id = $("#tree").jqGrid('getGridParam','selrow');
if(id) { // if add a root do not reload
var record = $("#tree").jqGrid('getLocalRow',id);
$("#tree").jqGrid('reloadNode', record);

{ "afterComplete" : reloadnode, "reloadAfterSubmit" : false, "closeAfterSubmit" :true}, //add
{ "afterComplete" : reloadnode, "reloadAfterSubmit" : false, "closeAfterSubmit" :true}, //edit

Fixed a lot of Bugs related to showing the labels and groupig.

Full list of changes us a URI ENCODED, comma separated list of tags. For example to tag with 'ASP.NET MVC', 'dependency injection', 'DI' and 'TDD': data-tags="ASP.NET%20MVC%2cdependency%20injection%2cDI%2cIOC%2cTDD" ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- -->

jqGrid is now Guriddo

December 15th, 2014 19 comments


There have been a lot of changes in Trirand over the last month that made me reconsider our work. It has been seven and a half years since we have launched the first version of jqGrid Java Script. From the very beginning jqGrid was open source and had the exceptionally liberal MIT license. That enabled many people to participate in the project development and in the same time, a lot of people used it commercially.

The numerous visits and comments, improvements and amendments serve as testament that jqGrid JavaScript is an interesting and promising project and yet we are not able to fulfill completely the users’ needs. Therefore, I decided that the Trirand team should focus exclusively on this project, as well as on the server PHP component.
In order to achieve this, we have to make some significant changes:

  • jqGrid JavaScript shall change its license from MIT/GPL 2 to Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 License. This means that the code can be seen by everyone but in order to use it commercially, the relevant license has to be paid.
  • The name will be changed – from now on the new name of the project shall be Guriddo jqGrid JavaScript.
  • In order to synchronize these operations, we created the new website This website shall serve Guriddo jqGrid Java Script and the guriddo PHP components.
  • The existing shall serve and develop ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC jqGrid components as a separate subdivision.

Any and all existing clients of the PHP component with a valid license shall be served by All users from along with the forum are transferred to the new website. The transfer was not an easy feat, so we would like to apologize in advance for any irregularities. As of now shall remain as is, as a learning experience.

We hope that with this new beginning, we will be able to make Guriddo jqGrid one of the best grid components.

Sincerely Yours,
Tony Tomov
