First Couple of 12.1 Features: Even Better Grids

Last modified date

Work on our next release (12.1) is well under way. Here are a couple of features that are ready for you to play with:

ListGrid Rotated Titles

In 12.1, listGrid field titles may be rotated to optimize the use of screen space. Note how in the grid below, many fields with long titles can be shown at once without scrolling the grid or clipping the titles. This may be appropriate whenever titles are much longer than values (i.e. long titles or short values), therefore maximizing use of space and user experience.

Achieving this couldn’t be easier. Just set rotateHeaderTitles to ‘true‘:

With titles rotated, all the user features like sort, group, autofit, etc. are of course still available.

Try the live sample here.

Custom Group Sorting

By default, the implicit sorting of group nodes with sortByGroupFirst uses their group value, but by defining the method groupSortNormalizer, you can sort them in any way you choose.

In the example below, we have the normalizer return the number of data records (leaf nodes) beneath a group node, so that we sort those nodes with the least number of data records beneath them first.

Clicking the “Sort Ascending” button reverses the order of the implicit sort.

Observe that you can apply an explicit sort on top of the implicit one by clicking on one of the header buttons. If you apply an explicit sort by “Category” or “Ship Date”, note that it sorts by group value as expected, and overrides the implicit sort.

Try the live sample here.
