The DataGrid will have the following set of new features in the Essential JS 2 2021 volume 1 release.
Exporting data to Excel and PDF
Export grid data as Excel or PDF files on the server side, using C# with customization support.
Exporting grid with template columns
Export a grid with template columns that contain images and hyperlinks as Excel and PDF files.
This auto-filter feature will export filtered data along with filter options to Excel files.
Drag and drop rows between grids
Drag and drop rows from grid to grid with a row indicator, which will specify the drop location.
The grid user interface (UI) was redesigned for better viewing and usability on small screens. Customized features will include responsive row rendering, filtering, sorting, searching, and editing.
External drag and drop
This feature will allow users to drag and drop a card from one Kanban board to another. Also, this will allow users to drag a card from Kanban to an external source such as the Schedule or DataGrid control and vice versa.
Median aggregation type
A median aggregation type will be added.
Multiple axes in Pivot Chart
This feature will allow us to display multiple values (i.e., measures) in a single axis.
Query Builder UI
Complex data binding
This feature will allow users to create a subfield for columns by specifying either a complex data source or nested columns.
Define a custom user interface for creating or deleting rules and groups. Customize the AND/OR condition and NOT condition options.
Rich Text Editor
The Rich Text Editor control will have one new feature in the Essential JS 2 2021 Volume 1 release.
Table cell merge and split
Merge two or more row and column cells into a single cell with their content. Split a single cell both horizontally and vertically.
Multiple events drag and drop
Select multiple events and reschedule them quickly by dragging-and-dropping them. Multiple selections can be done by pressing the CTRL key when clicking.
This feature will allow users to set 24-hour or 12-hour time formats in the scheduler. By default, the time format will be applied from the schedule’s current culture configuration.
Keep the specified rows and columns always visible at the top and left side of the sheet while scrolling through it.
This feature will allow users to save spreadsheet data as a PDF document.
Password protection for workbooks
This feature will help users protect a workbook with a password.
Drag and drop
This feature will allow users to reorder Tabs by dragging and dropping to re-prioritize the tab items. It will help us to add tabs dynamically from an external source such as ListView, TreeView and more.
While binding large volume of data, this feature will help users fetch and load data instantly when the vertical scrollbar reaches the end of the TreeGrid.
Maintain states while exporting
Retain the expand or collapse state of a TreeGrid while exporting its rows in a webpage.
