How to add/update Grid data through copy and paste from Excel?

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejGrid

This documentation explained how to add or update the Grid data through copy and paste from Excel sheet.


If you want to add or update the grid data from Excel sheet, first you need to convert the data into JSON object. In here we have converted this pasted data by using oninput event of jquery. Then we have merged this JSON object with Grid dataSource. After that we have assigned that merged dataSource to the Grid by using dataSource method of the Grid.




1. Render the Grid control.













 Jquery event






IE browser doesn’t support jquery oninput event. So we have created the jquery.pastable.js script to achieve this requirement in IE browser. You need to refer this script file in your application to achieve this requirement in IE. Refer the following code snippet to how to use this script file in your project.






The following output is displayed the above behavior
