Spreadsheet Headers

This section provides instructions for creating custom headers in spreadsheets and modifying them programmatically. The user can alter the header titles using the context menu or perform a long click on one of the headers.

What's new in Version 11?

Advanced API usage: In the latest update, the internal instance.headers structure within Jspreadsheet has been replaced with instance.cols. This new structure consolidates all column-related information, including references to the DOM elements of each column, into a single, accessible format.
