How to add a template in ribbon backstage

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejSpreadSheet


This knowledge base explains how to add a template in ribbon backstage.


It can be achieved by using ‘loadComplete’ client-side event in the Spreadsheet. Here we have added button as a template in the ribbon backstage and we will update the template data by using “openTemplate()” method, when template button is clicked.

The following code example demonstrate how to add template in ribbon backstage,




<div id="Spreadsheet"></div>




  1. Render the Spreadsheet control.


    loadComplete: "onLoadComplete"




        events => events.LoadComplete("onLoadComplete")




<ej:Spreadsheet ID="Spreadsheet" runat="server">
    <ClientSideEvents LoadComplete="onLoadComplete" />




  1. Use “loadComplete” client-side event to add template in ribbon backstage.


function onLoadComplete() {
    var spreadsheetID = "Spreadsheet", backstageNewElem = $("#" + spreadsheetID + "_backstagetabnew"), backstageItem, templateID = spreadsheetID + "_bstab_template", buttonOption;
    //Adding Backstage Item 
    if (!backstageNewElem.find("#" + templateID).length) {
        backstageItem = '<div class="e-spreadsheet-template"><button id="' + templateID + '"></button><span></span></div>',
        buttonOption = { height: 120, width: 150, contentType: "textOnly", text: "Template", click: "openTemplate" };
        $("#" + templateID).ejButton(buttonOption);
function openTemplate(args) {
    //To update template data in the Spreadsheet
    var spreadsheetID = "Spreadsheet", xlObj = $("#" + spreadsheetID).data("ejSpreadsheet"), sheetIdx = xlObj.getActiveSheetIndex(), templateData = { dataSource: [{ Product: "XYZ", Price: "2000", Quantity: "10", Price: "20", Amount: "200" }], showHeader: "true", startCell: "A1" };
    xlObj.updateRange(sheetIdx, templateData);
    $("#" + spreadsheetID + "_Ribbon").data("ejRibbon").hideBackstage();


The following is displayed as output of adding custom template in the Spreadsheet ribbon backstage.
