Row Spanning in JavaScript (ES5) Grid control

03 Oct 2022 / 4 minutes to read

The grid has option to span row cells. To achieve this, You need to define the rowSpan attribute to span cells in the QueryCellInfo event.

In the following demo, Davolio cell is spanned to two rows in the EmployeeName column.

Also Grid supports the spanning of rows and columns for same cells. Lunch Break cell is spanned to two rows and three columns in the 1:00 column.

When paging is enabled in grid, you can disable the rows and columns spanning for any particular page. To achieve this, we need to check requestType as paging <code class='language-text'> string</code> in queryCellInfo event of grid.
