jqGrid is a popular jQuery Plugin for displaying and editing data in tabular form. It has some other more sophisticated features, like subgrids, TreeGrids, grouping and so on.

jqGrid was developed originally by Tony Tomov and it was available under MIT/GPL-licenses till the version 4.7.0 published Dec 8, 2014 (see here). Short time after that the license agreement was changed (see here) and new 4.7.1 version was published.

The code from the GitHib repository is the fork of jqGrid 4.7.0 - the latest version available under MIT/GPL-licenses. It will be provided under MIT/GPL-licenses.

Below you can find short description of new features and the bug fixes implemented in free jqGrid 4.14.1 (compared with version 4.14.0). The version is developed by Oleg Kiriljuk, alias Oleg on the stackoverflow and OlegK on trirand forum.

Read Wiki for more detailed information about the features of free-jqGrid. The preliminary version of the documentation can be found here.

One can install the package with respect of npm by using "npm install free-jqgrid", with respect of bower by using "bower install free-jqgrid" or from NuGet by using "Install-Package free-jqGrid".

The package is published on WebJars too and it's deployed to Maven Central.

Free jqGrid is is available from jsDelivr CDN and cdnjs. Thus one can use it directly from Internet by including for example the URLs like

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/free-jqgrid/4.14.1/css/ui.jqgrid.min.css">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/free-jqgrid/4.14.1/js/jquery.jqgrid.min.js"></script>

or

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/free-jqgrid/4.14.1/css/ui.jqgrid.min.css">
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/free-jqgrid/4.14.1/jquery.jqgrid.min.js"></script>

The locale file is optional. One can, but one don't need to include grid.locale-en.min.js, because the same information is already included in the jquery.jqgrid.min.js (or jquery.jqgrid.src.js).

If somebody want to test the latest version of free jqGrid, one can load it directly from GitHib using RawGit service:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://rawgit.com/free-jqgrid/jqGrid/master/css/ui.jqgrid.css">
<script src="https://rawgit.com/free-jqgrid/jqGrid/master/js/jquery.jqgrid.src.js"></script>

All other language files and plugins are available from CDN too. See the wiki article for more details about the usage of free jqGrid from CDNs and RawGit.

Remark: the above URLs will be available after publishing the release of the version of 4.14.1.

New main features implemented in the version 4.14.1 compared with 4.14.0:

  • Add support of generateDatalist:true in searchoptions and new method generateDatalistFromColumnIndex. The option generateDatalist: true can be added to searchoptions of the column, which has createColumnIndex: true. It generates <datalist> with unique values of the column. As the result, one gets the feature close to Autocomplete using only built-in functionality of HTML5. The demo https://jsfiddle.net/OlegKi/su7ebs65/ shows the usage of the feature. The demo is close to the demo https://jsfiddle.net/OlegKi/yvbt6w54/ from the README to the version 4.14.0, but it uses no jQuery UI Autocomplete.
  • Performance improvement in $.jgrid.isCellClassHidden method. See the issue for more details.
  • Allow to use callback functions as the value of Boolean properties of editrules.
  • Initialize this and add the options for jsonmap/xmlmap defined as functions. Add second options parameter with two properties: cmName and iItem.
  • Add filters property of prmNames and searching.sFilter allows to change the name of postData properties used for filtering.
  • Add Event parameter to onSortCol callback and jqGridSortCol event. See the issue for more details.
