Spreadsheet Columns

Column settings in a spreadsheet determine the behaviour of all cells within a column, including input data types and properties such as read-only status, data masks, and rendering options. This section provides a comprehensive overview of settings, events, and programmatic methods available in Jspreadsheet, designed to tailor the spreadsheet functionality to specific application requirements.

Documentation

Methods

Below are the methods for programmatically interacting with spreadsheet columns.

Method Description
autoWidth Resize the given column numbers based on their content.
autoWidth(columns: number[]) => void
getWidth Get the width from one or all defined columns.
getWidth(colNumber?: Number) => number | array
setWidth Set the column width.
setWidth(col: number|number[], width: number|number[]) => void
getColumn Get the column settings by number.
getColumn(colNumber: Number) => Object
getColumnIdByName Get the column position number by name, when the data is a JSON.
getColumnIdByName(columnName: String) => Number
getPrimaryKey Get a column in which the primaryKey property is defined as true.
getPrimaryKey() => mixed
moveColumn Change the position of one or more columns.
moveColumn(columnNumber: Number, newPositionNumber: Number, quantityOfColumns?: Number) => void
insertColumn Create one or more new columns.
@param {number|Object[]} - number of columns or column definitions.
@param {number?} columnNumber - The new column reference position.
@param {boolean?} insertBefore - The new column(s) should be included before or after the columnNumber defined
insertColumn(columns?: Number|Object[], position?: Number, insertBefore?: Boolean) => void
deleteColumn Delete one or more columns.
@param {number|number[]} columns - Column number or list of column numbers to delete.
@param {number?} numOfColumns - Number of columns to be excluded when the first argument is a number.
deleteColumn(columns: Number|Number[], numOfColumns?: Number) => void
showColumn Show a columns
@param {number|number[]} columns - Show the column by numbers.
showColumn(columns: Number|Number[]) => void
hideColumn Hide a column by number.
@param {number|number[]} columns - Hide the column by numbers.
hideColumn(columns: Number|Number[]) => void
showIndex Show the index column for the spreadsheet.
showIndex() => void
hideIndex Hide the index column for the spreadsheet.
hideIndex() => void
getProperty Get the column settings by number.
getProperty(colNumber: Number) => Object
setProperty Set the column settings by number.
setProperty(colNumber: Number, properties: Object) => Object

Adding a New Column

To insert a new column into the data grid, you can pass an array of objects, each object containing three properties outlined below. This approach allows for the creation of multiple columns in a single operation.

Method Description
data: any[] Array with the column data
column: number The index where the new column will be inserted.
options: object An object specifying the column's attributes.
Example

To add a new column at the beginning of the grid:

worksheet.insertColumn([
    {
        data: [1,2,3],
        column: 0,
        options: {
            type: 'calendar',
            title: 'My new column'
        }
    }
]);

Events

There are several events related to the column in your spreadsheet. There are a few onbefore events you can use to intercept, validate or cancel a user action.

Event Description
oncreatecolumn When a new column is created.
oncreatecolumn(worksheet: Object, columnNumber: number, td: HTMLElement, options: Object)
onbeforeinsertcolumn Before a new column is inserted. Return false to cancel the user action.
onbeforeinsertcolumn(worksheet: Object, columns: Object[]) => Boolean | Object[] | void
oninsertcolumn After a new column is inserted.
oninsertcolumn(worksheet: Object, column: Object[]) => void
onbeforedeletecolumn Before a column is excluded. Return false to cancel the user action.
onbeforedeletecolumn(worksheet: Object, cols: Number[]) => boolean | Number[] | void
ondeletecolumn After a column is excluded.
ondeletecolumn(worksheet: Object, cols: Number[]) => void
onmovecolumn After a column is moved to a new position.
onmovecolumn(worksheet: Object, origin: Number, destination: Number, quantity: Number)
onresizecolumn After a column width change for one or more columns.
onresizecolumn(worksheet: Object, column: Mixed, width: Mixed, oldWidth: Mixed)
onchangecolumnvisibility When the visibility of cols changes.
onchangecolumnvisibility(worksheet: Object, state: boolean: affected: []]) => void

Initial Settings

The following column-related properties are available through the initialization of the online spreadsheet.

Property Description
allowInsertColumn: boolean Enable the user to enter new columns. Default: true
allowManualInsertColumn: boolean A new column is added when the user presses the tab key in the last column. Default: true
