Ignite UI API Reference

ui.igHierarchicalGrid

ui.igHierarchicalGrid_image

The igHierarchicalGrid control is a hierarchical jQuery Grid control that features filtering, group by, column hiding, paging, column resizing, row selectors, cell selection, sorting, column summaries, tooltips, and updating functionality. For more information on each of these features, see their corresponding API document: igGridFiltering, igGridGroupBy, igGridHiding, igGridResizing, igGridPaging, igGridRowSelectors, igGridSelection, igGridSorting, igGridSummaries, igGridTooltips, igGridUpating. The igHierarchicalGrid control is built on top of the stand-alone flat-data igGrid control. The API for the igGrid control serves as the base for configuring the igHierarchicalGrid control and its columnLayouts settings. See the igGrid control API document for more details.

The following code snippet demonstrates how to initialize the igHierarchicalGrid control.
