Adding rows, rowGroup

Adding rows, rowGroup

Bindrid2Bindrid2 Posts: 72Questions: 0Answers: 12

I am using rowGroup grouped by fiscal year (4 digit string);
When I add a new row via Editor, I am expecting the row to be added to the appropriate group.
What it does do is add a duplicate group and adds the row to the duplicate group at the bottom of the table.

I do not save data back to the server during the add row process. Changes to the table are all saved at once triggered by user action.

Suggestions? Is there a way during the row create process to tell the DataTable to do a full table draw instead of just the row?

(rowGroup is missing from the list of extensions in the Category dropdown for these forums)

 this.editorDef = {
        table: "#" + this.tableId,
        template: "#EquityTemplate",
        display: 'bootstrap',
        fields: [
            {
                name: "FiscalYear", label: "Fiscal Year", type: "display"
            },
            {
                data: "one",
                id:"ddlEditorEquity",
                name: "one",
                label: "One",
                type: "select2",
                message:"<span style='color:red'>Required Field</span>",
                options: JSON.parse(sessionStorage.getItem("Equity_DllList")),
                optionsPair: { label: 'Text', value: 'Value' }
             
            },

            // direct cite
            {
                name: "two", label: "Percent", type: "numeric", def:"0.0", attr: {
                    tabIndex: 2, 
                    class: "form-control-sm text-right"
                }
            },
            { name: "three", label: "Work Years", type: "numeric", def: "0.0", attr: { tabIndex: 3, class: "form-control-sm text-right" } },
            // reimbursable

           { name: "seven", label: "Outsource Work Years", type: "numeric", def: "0.1", attr: { tabIndex: 5, class: "form-control-sm text-right" } }
        ],
        formOptions: {
            inline: {
                onBlur: 'submit',
            },
            bubble: {
                buttons: false,
                onBlur: "submit"
            }

        }
    };

    Field type type: "numeric", above, is my own plug-in that ensures that the data is returned as a number, not a string.

    figured it out

            ...
            rowGroup: {
                dataSrc: "FiscalYear",
                startClassName: "start-table-group",
                endClassName: "end-table-group",
                className: "class-name",
            },
            ordering:true,
            "orderFixed": [[0, 'asc'], [1, 'asc']],
            columnDefs: [
                {targets:"_all", orderable: false}],
    
             // I added the rowGroup column to the list of columns but hid it
      columns: [
            {data:"FiscalYear", visible:false},
            {data: "one" },
            {data: "two"},
            { data: "three"},
            { data: "four },
            { data: "five" },
            { data: "six},
          ],
       ...

    Good to hear you got it working.

    4 digit string

    I suspect what is happening is that the data from the server is a string, but your plug-in is returning a number. RowGroup uses a string equivalence operator (===) so 1999 and "1999" are not the same thing, even if they are eventually printed out as the same thing.
