View Full Version : Row Height Resize in Grid (Same as Column Resize)

31 Jan 2011, 2:19 AM
I have a grid which is now looking very much like a spreadsheet with a fair bit of functionality now. You can see it here at: http://www.aztec-online.com/spreadsheet

I have a couple of things left, but the main thing I want to sort out at the moment is resizing row heights. How do I add the splitter like for a column resize, to the rows?

I would really like to have it work the same way, any suggestions?

P.s any bugs anyone can spot would be helpful, there are bound to be a couple in there!

Any suggestions?

The columns don't actually have splitters. The entire grid header is a drag/drop zone created with Ext.grid.HeaderDragZone and Ext.grid.HeaderDropZone.

You would have to create your own Ext.ux.grid.RowDragZone and Ext.ux.grid.RowDropZone classes and create them in the grid view afterRenderUI method.

Ok, I see that is its within the gridview, but what is "Ext.grid.GridView.SplitDragZone"?

Is it HeaderDragZone/DropZone or has it got anything to do with SplitDragZone? I saw this which made me think this way:

if (grid.enableColumnResize !== false) {
this.splitZone = new Ext.grid.GridView.SplitDragZone(grid, this.mainHd.dom);

if (grid.enableColumnMove) {
this.columnDrag = new Ext.grid.GridView.ColumnDragZone(grid, this.innerHd);
this.columnDrop = new Ext.grid.HeaderDropZone(grid, this.mainHd.dom);

Oops... Yes I meant Ext.grid.GridView.SplitDragZone.

You would have to create a different dragzone for the grid rows (look at the Ext.grid.GridView.SplitDragZone code and modify it for rows instead of columns).

One little issue I am having is that the 2 values you pass in the constructor in the column splitdragzone are (grid, header). The problem is with resizing row heights, is that I cannot pass a single element that is the first column.

I need to break it up and apply this dragzone to every rows first column?

Correct, so you'll have to pass the entire grid body element and detect if the mouse is over the first cell yourself.

did anyone proceeded with suggestions of Condor? I need a very similar UI control for in browser xl sheet we are making. I'll be more than happy to take anyone's partial work and improve on it.
