Freeze Pane

Freeze pane allows you to keep a portion of the sheet visible, while scrolling through the rest of the worksheet.

The freeze pane can be applied in a following ways,

  1. User Interface
  2. Initial Load
  3. Method

User Interface

Select any cell and on OTHERS tab click Freeze Panes in Freeze Panes dropdown list.

Initial Load

You can use allow-freezing property to enable or disable freeze pane in Spreadsheet.
To specify number of rows and columns to be frozen, use frozen-rows and frozen-columns property in sheets.

The following code example describes the above behavior,

<ej-spread-sheet id="Spreadsheet" allow-freezing="true">
    <e-sheets>
        <e-sheet frozen-rows="5" frozen-columns="2" datasource="ViewBag.Datasource"></e-sheet>
    </e-sheets>
</ej-spread-sheet>
