ZingGrid v1.4.0 is here! We have been working hard these last few months on several new features and options that we think will really help you get the most out of ZingGrid! Check out some of our most recent new features:

ZingGrid now has the ability to preserve its state by setting the preserveStateId  attribute on your grid. Grids that share the same preserveStateId will share states.

For a full list of states that the grid preserves, check out the docs (https://www.zinggrid.com/docs/features/grid-state-persistence).

To only preserve some states, use the preserveStateOptions attribute to specify states to persist.

We’ve also now added support to use an HTML table as a grid data source. Easily convert an HTML table to a ZingGrid by adding [is="zing-grid"] to the <table> tag.

There are also two alternative ways to use an HTML table as a data source:

- Wrap the <zing-grid> tag around the <table> element

- Set ZingGrid[data] to the selector of the HTML table

  • After, take advantage of the grid features to visualize your table data.

ZingGrid now supports CSV and XML data and can detect the type of its data source. However, ZGParam[name="dataType"] is added if you choose to specify the static data type.

For CSV data sources, check out the CSV docs (https://www.zinggrid.com/docs/data/csv) to configure how to parse the data.

We’ve also added the new column type, record duplicate. This will render a column of buttons that will duplicate the row. The duplicated row will be inserted right under the original, making creation and editing much faster and more efficient.
