Freeze Columns

Freezing columns in a spreadsheet allows you to keep specific columns visible while scrolling through the sheet. This feature helps keep essential data in view, even when working with large amounts of data. You can enable this feature either during the initialization of the grid or programmatically using the setFreezeColumns method.

Note Freeze columns feature only works when the tableOverflow or fullscreen property is enabled.
