View Full Version : Does Grid support formatting and links in grid cells

22 Apr 2007, 4:21 PM

I would like to convert an existing CRUD application into one using grids for viewing data. However some rows will need to contain on eof the following things:
- <span> with background color
- links that go to external pages
- javascript that opens external pages

Is this possible with the extjs grid? I have seen you can create cell-listeners. To allow me to transition I would like to defer this to later.

Thanks for any comments and help.

yes you can do formatting at either the row or cell level. To do formatting at cell level you can setup a renderer. Here is an example of a column definition in the column model:
header: 'Priority',
dataIndex: 'priority',
renderer: function(data, cell, record, rowIndex, columnIndex, store) {
cell.css = "redcell"; //set the css class of the cell
data = "<strong>" + data "</strong>"; //wrap html around the cell data

Hope this helps
