The PHP DataGrid is a high-performance and feature-rich control. It is used to display data from JSON or web services in a tabular format and have more features with an attractive UI. The DataGrid control’s rich feature set includes many functionalities: data binding with adaptors, editing, filtering, grouping, paging, freezing rows and columns, aggregating rows, and exporting to Excel, Word, and PDF formats.

Data Binding

Data binding in grid is a powerful feature that is used to bind local JSON data and remote data, i.e. all RESTful services including OData web services. Further, it supports Essential JavaScript’s data manager binding which has a complete customization option for data processing. Flow chart for server and client data binding to grid

Virtual Scrolling

Virtual scrolling makes grid more compatible for scenarios where huge data needs to be bound without paging layout. It uses on-demand loading for adding rows at the event of scrolling, thus improving the grid’s initial loading time by requesting only visible row data.
