Q. Do I still have access to the underlying grid control if I use Adaptable Blotter?
A. Yes Adaptable Blotter doesn't hide the underlying grid. So you still have full access to the full API and can code against it just as if the Blotter was not being used.
Q. Do you include licences for the underlying grid?
A. No, we don't. If the underlying grid requires a commercial licence then you must pay for that separately. The Adaptable Blotter will not check if the licence is present.
Q. Which grid version do you support?
A. We support the most recent major version of each underlying grid.
Q. Which underlying grids are currently supported?
A. We currently support:
ag-Grid (from ag-Grid)
HyperGrid (from OpenFin)
Kendo Grid (from Telerik)
Adaptable Grid (from Adaptable Tools)
We are adding more grids all the time so please watch this space.
Q. Which grids do you plan to add next?
A. We are planning to add implementations for ng-Grid, SlickGrid and FancyGrid. But if you have urgent requirements for a different grid, please get in touch.
Q. How easy is it to add a new grid? How long does it take?
A. Each use case is different but it usually takes a couple of months for us to implement a new grid. Most of our functions are implemented very quickly, but there is always one that requires a lot of bespoke work and effort.
Q. Can we add a grid implementation?
A. Yes, you can. We would be delighted if others contributed to our current grid implementations. Please get in touch.
Q. Do you support all the functionality in the underlying grid e.g. grouping?
A. Yes, if the underlying grid has grouping then Adaptable Blotter will support it fully and all our functions will work while grouping is applied. For example, see the ag-Grid grouping demo on our demo site.
Q. The Hypergrid doesn't have grouping, will you provide it?
A. Yes. As a general rule we don't add missing features to an underlying grid; our proposition is that we will support any features that the underlying grid offers, and offer our own additional features on top to be used by all implementations. However grouping is such a common request and vital piece of functionality, and the Hypergrid is so popular with our clients that we are making an exception in this case and will shortly be adding grouping for Hypergrid users.
