Spreadsheet Viewport

The viewport delimits the area of the visible cells in the JavaScript grid. When the viewport is enabled, JSS will render only the necessary visible cells. That means viewport is the most important configuration when dealing with a large amount of data. tableOverflow: true will enable the viewport along the properties tableWidth and tableHeight to define the viewport width and height respectively. It is also possible to use fullscreen: true to make sure all available screen area is used for cell rendering. Those properties are defined at the worksheet level. That means the developer can choose different viewport sizes for each worksheet.
