Do you support grouping?
f the underlying grid has grouping then Adaptable Blotter will support it. Additionally we are planning to write grouping for the Hypergrid as this is one of the most commonly received feature requests we receive. See this demo of the Adaptable Blotter implementing a Grid that has advanced aggressions, grouping and pivoting features applied.
Do you support banded columns?
Yes, if the underlying grid supports it. For instance, ag-Grid has Column Groups which are essentially banded columns and they are fully supported by Adaptable Blotter.
Can we open Function popups via a keyboard shortcut?
Not at present, though we may add this in a future version. You can currently access Functions either from the Functions Dropdown, or from a Function Bookmark - both in the Dashboard. Some Functions additionally have a toolbar to provide easy access to the functionality and avoid needing to use the popup altogether.
Can we include our own cell editors? If we have custom editors can we use them?
Yes. You can use any editors that the underlying grid supports. Adaptable Blotter doesn't have any view on what cell editors are used; all it needs to know is the previous and changed cell value. So you can use any cell editors that you wish.
Can I have a cell with a button?
Yes you can put anything you want in a column or cell. If you have a button you will need to write the event logic but Adaptable Blotter won't prevent it from working.
Do you support the grid's readonly columns?
A. Yes. If a column has been set to be readonly when the grid is defined, none of the Adaptable Blotter's editing functions (e.g. Smart Edit, Shortcuts, Plus / Minus etc) will work. Similarly AdaptableBlotter.JS will respect it if the column is set to not filterable or not sortable.
Do you support readonly cells?
Not at present but we plan to support that in a forthcoming release.
Can we provide our own colours for the colour palette instead of using your defaults colours?
Yes, you can supply your own colour palette at design time which will ship with the system containing the grid. This is done through configuration - see more at User Interface Config.
Can we see a summary in the Wizard of what steps have been completed so far?
Yes. Each wizard displays a list of all the required steps along the top, together with an indication of the current step.
Can this wizard summary be clickable?
At the moment its just a static representation of the steps available but in a future release the wizard legend will also be clickable (where appropriate). We have recently added a finish button so that when editing an existing item you dont need to click all the way to the end if just making one change.
Is there a way to show / hide the Floating Filter?
You can do so in 2 ways: from any column header menu, or from the Column Filter toolbar. The latter has a show/hide button that.
Why does my Grid not have a Floating Filter?
Not every vendor grid contains a Floating Filter. The Adaptable Blotter uses an existing floating filter if one is there in the Vendor Grid (and extends the functionality) but it wont create one if one doesnt already exist.
Is there a way to ensure that modal windows only take up their own screen estate and dont encroach on other windows?
Yes, set the modalContainer property in AdaptableBlotterOptions to Grid.
