Mobile Layout

If client width is less than 321px, the grid will render in mobile mode. In which, you can see that grid user interface is customized and redesigned for best view in small screens. The customized features includes responsive row rendering, filtering, sorting, searching and editing.

Responsive Row

Enabling Responsive row makes the Grid to render the record values in vertical order which removes the need for horizontal scrolling to view complete record details. It can be enabled by defining enableResponsiveRow property as true.

  • html
  • <div id="Grid"></div>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    $("#Grid").ejGrid({
    
    		dataSource: window.gridData,
    		isResponsive: true,
    		enableResponsiveRow: true,
    		allowPaging: true,
    		pageSettings: {
    		pageCount: 3,
    		pageSize: 7
    		},
    		columns:
    			 [
    				 {field: "OrderID",isPrimaryKey: true,headerText: "Order ID"},
    				 {field: "CustomerID",headerText: "CustomerID"},
    				 {field: "EmployeeID",headerText: "Employee ID"},
    				 {field: "ShipCity",headerText: "Ship City"},
    				 {field: "Freight",headerText: 'Freight',format: "{0:C}"}
    			]

  • html
  • <div id="Grid"></div>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    $("#Grid").ejGrid({
    
    	dataSource: window.gridData,

    Width

    By default, the grid is adaptable to its parent container. It can adjust its width of columns based on parent container width. You can also assign width of columns in percentage.

  • html
  • <div id="Grid"></div>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    $("#Grid").ejGrid({
    	dataSource: window.gridData,
    	columns:
    	 [
    		 {field: "OrderID",isPrimaryKey: true,headerText: "Order ID",width: "10%",textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right},
    		 {field: "CustomerID",headerText: "CustomerID",width: "15%"},
    		 {field: "EmployeeID",headerText: "Employee ID",width: "10%",textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right}
    		]
      });
    
    </script>

    IMPORTANT

    allowScrolling should be false while defining width in percentage.

    Min Width

    Min Width is used to maintain minimum width for the Grid. To enable Min Width, minWidth should be defined. If the grid width is less than minWidth then the scrollbar will be displayed to maintain minimum width.

  • html
  • <div id="Grid"></div>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    $("#Grid").ejGrid({
    
    	dataSource: window.gridData,
    	minWidth: 700, 
    	allowPaging: true,
    	columns:
    	 	[
    			 {field: "OrderID",isPrimaryKey: true,headerText: "Order ID",width: 90,textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right}, 
    			 {field: "CustomerID",headerText: "CustomerID",width: 100}, 
    			 {field: "EmployeeID",headerText: "Employee ID",width: 90,textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right}, 
    			 {field: "ShipCity",headerText: "Ship City",width: 120}, 
    			 {field: "Freight",headerText: 'Freight',width: 110,format: "{0:C}"}
    			]
    		});
    
    </script>

    minwidth

    MinWidth set to Grid

    NOTE

    We can render the Grid to be height responsive by setting the scrollSettings height as 100%. If the grid height is greater than its parent container’s height then the vertical scrollbar will be displayed to view the content.

    Priority for Columns

    Priority makes column to be visible or hidden based on the priority value and browser’s width, to accommodate the best possible columns. To enable priority for columns, priority needs to be defined in columns collection. These Priority values are from one to six.

  • html
  • <div id="Grid"></div>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    $("#Grid").ejGrid({
    	dataSource: window.gridData,
    	allowPaging: true,
    	columns: 
    		[
    			{field: "OrderID",isPrimaryKey: true,headerText: "Order ID",width: 90,priority: 1,textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right},
    			{field: "CustomerID",headerText: "CustomerID",width: 100,priority: 2},
    			{field: "EmployeeID",headerText: "Employee ID",width: 90,priority: 1,textAlign: ej.TextAlign.Right},
    			{field: "ShipCity",headerText: "Ship City",width: 120,priority: 3},
    			{field: "Freight",headerText: 'Freight',width: 110,format: "{0:C}",priority: 4,}
    		]
