_title: Spreadsheet Validations: Ensuring Data Integrity through Input Rules

Spreadsheet Validations

Jspreadsheet validations enforce data entry rules, flagging cells for corrections and ensuring inputs match specific requirements. This boosts data integrity by minimizing errors and streamlining data management.

Documentation

Methods

Below are the methods available to manage validations in Jspreadsheet.

Method Description
getValidations Retrieves validation rules for a given index.
getValidations(index: Number) => Object
setValidations Create new or change exiting validation rules.
setValidations(validations: Object[]) => void
resetValidations Resets specific validation rules by index or reset all if no parameters are provided.
resetValidations(indexes?: Number[]) => void
loadValidations Retrieves all validation rules for a specific cell given its coordinates.
loadValidations(x: Number, y: Number) => Object[]
hasErrors Checks if a specific worksheet cell fails the validation rules.
hasErrors(col?: Number|String, row?: Number) => Boolean

Events

Events related to validations.

Method Description
onvalidation onvalidation(worksheet: worksheetInstance, records: Validations[]) => void

Validations[]

All available properties to define a validation

Property Description
index: number Index of an array of validations.
value: Validation[] Array of validation objects

Validation object

Property Description
range: string A cell or a range of cells affect by the validation rules. Example: Sheet1!A1:A8 or a whole column as Sheet1!E:E
type: string 'number' | 'text' | 'date' | 'list' | 'textLength' | 'empty' | 'notEmpty' or 'your-custom-valication'
Action: string 'warning' | 'reject' | 'format'
criteria: string '=' | '!=' | '>=' | '>' | '<=' | '<' | 'between | 'not between' | 'valid date' | 'valid email' | 'valid url' | 'contains' | 'not contains' | 'begins with' | 'ends with'
text: string Define the warning or reject message.
allowBlank: boolean Allow blank values. Only valid for warning messages
format: object color, background-color, font-weight, font-style.
className: string Class name to be added to the cell when the condition is match.

Custom Validations

You can create custom validations in Jspreadsheet using jSuites.validations. Firstly, you define a method that returns true or false based on your validation logic. Note that within the function, the this refers to the cell object, providing access to its coordinates this.x, this.y and the worksheet instance this.w.

Example

For example, to validate that a cell value starts with '=', you can define a validation method like isFormula, which checks the first character of the cell's value.

jSuites.validations.isFormula = function(value, options) {
    return value && value[0] === '=';
}

Now, you can declare your cell validations within the configuration of your Jspreadsheet data grid.

// Create the spreadsheet
const grid = jspreadsheet(document.getElementById('spreadsheet'), {
    worksheets: [{
        data: [
            ["A1*2"],
            ["=A2*2"],
            ["A3*2"],
            ["=A4*2"],
            ["A5*2"]
        ],
        minDimensions: [6, 6],
    }],
    validations: [{
        range: 'Sheet1!A1:A6',
        action: "warning",
        message: "This is a not formula",
        type: "isFormula", // This should be declared as jSuites.validations.isFormula
    }]
});

Examples

Basic Data Grid with Validations

Validations in Jspreadsheet ensure data integrity by enforcing rules either initially or programmatically.
