Inherits

  • activation

    Type:
    bool
    Default:
    true

    Enables / disables activation of rows and cells. Activation implies ability to perform navigating through cells and rows via the keyboard, and selecting rows and cells using CTRL / SHIFT - in the way cells/rows are selected in Ms Excel.

    Code Sample

     
            //Initialize
            $(".selector").igGrid({
                features : [
                    {

            });
            
            //Get
            var activation = $(".selector").igGridSelection("option", "activation");
            
            //Set
            $(".selector").igGridSelection("option", "activation", true);
          
  • mode

    Type:
    enumeration
    Default:
    row

    Defines type of the selection.

    Members

    • row
    • Type:string
    • Defines row selection mode.
    • cell
    • Type:string
    • Defines cell selection mode.

    Code Sample

     
            //Initialize
            $(".selector").igGrid({
