Hi,

Would like to suggest 2 features for the spreadsheet which will be very useful

 

1) Ability to delete specific cell (not just the content, but the cell itself). Currently there is way to delete row or columns, but no cell deletion.  When cell is deleted, user should be prompted whether to allow all cells below the deleted cell to shift up, or all cells on the right of it to shift left. Akin to excel

 

2) Format painter. The ability to "paint" the styles (such as font size, boldness) from existing text to another existing text. Akin to excel.

Hello

We are trying to use the Kendo Jquery spreadsheet but are running across some issues in terms of setting up for printing and/or exporting to PDF.

 

Currently, we let the user modify the spreadsheet to suit their needs.  The problem is there is no way to see page breaks at this time...that we know of.  The users stretch columns and row to suit their needs but the only way to see if they 'broke' across a page is to export to pdf to see...

 

We would like one or two options...

1. We know what our page size is - 8 1/2 x 11.  Is there a way to fix the max size of the spreadsheet so it's 1 page wide?  If the user inserts columns then the other columns just get smaller and smaller - proportionally - but ultimately the sheet is as only as wide as 1 page...

 

2. The ability to see where the page breaks are so they can set up the sheet correctly.

 

Please let me know if one of these options is feasible or are we stuck?

 

Thank you

Jeffrey Suffet

How to add Superscript, Subscript HTML Entities to Kendo Spreadsheet Cell Data
Declined
Last Updated: 26 Feb 2020 14:16 by ADMIN
Please see Demo https://dojo.telerik.com/UNOPUvaB/2

In first data row (Row 3) I create a range of numeric values from a , middle and maximum value.
Validation works perfectly, e.g. when manipulating the Middle value, I cannot go below minimum cell value and not above maximum cell value, until adjusted.

I want to accomplish the same with dates in second data row (Row 4 when I reference another "C4", it looks like validation works as expected, but the Date Picker is broken.

Make Spreadsheet xlsx import failure more user friendly. Currently, when xlsx import fails, the UI thread is blocked and the user needs to reload the page in the browser. The import operation instead could process the file in the background and could return meaningful message without blocking the UI.

Dear Concerned,

1. Launch https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/spreadsheet/index

2. Open attached MultipleSheetsRowHeightIssue.xlsx

3. Please notice there are 3 sheets with default row height 20, 30, 40 respectively (you can check in MS Excel)

4. Now Click export, and open the exported file again 

5. Now we have an issue here - all sheets set to default row height to 40. (It seems that it is setting the last sheet's default row height to all sheets)

Its severe issue, please share a fix or at least provide some workaround.

I see some potential for improvements here, I see how the Spreadsheet entirely depends on the JSON structure. It doesn't have to be like this as the setDataSource() method shows clearly that the columns could be further configured: 

https://www.telerik.com/forums/datasource---specify-columns#msCK2ytWcESxeUMs-6a3uQ

Therefore, the Sheet columns could be configured upon the widget initialization. Such configuration options could be represented in the following manner for the HTML helper version of the widget:

.Columns<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.SpreadsheetProductViewModel>(columns =>
{
    columns.Add(c => c.ProductId).Name("Product ID").Width(100);
    columns.Add(c => c.ProductName).Name("Name").Width(415);
})

Hi,

We are using Kendo spreadsheet one of our applications. We wanted to get applied filters and set back to the Kendo spreadsheet. Not able to find a documentation for that. Can you please anyone help to sort this issue out?

Thanks

Hi,

When editing a workbook with the Spreadsheet component, if a user switches from a worksheet to another, then moves the scrollbars, when switching back, although the active cell is adequately recovered, the scrollbars are not (the user experience is that they do not react to worksheet switching).

Is this behavior planned to be changed? Is there a workaround?

Best

Different scroll position should be persisted for each sheet.

It would be nice to have custom attributes for rows and cells so that I can track things behind the scenes such as row identifiers that could be used to update a corresponding rows in a the data base. This id would not be editable by the user. There are many more uses I would like this for and that is just one example.

I would rather not have to create a column in the spreadsheet just for this and then hide it. I find that very clunky.

 

Thanks.

Currently, after export to excel and opening the exported file again in Spreadsheet, the row heights for rows with predefined height change. The above could be easily observed on the Index demo:

* initially, the height of the top row is set to 70px;

* export the Spreadsheet to Excel;

* after re-importing the above file, the height of the first row "Invoice #52" becomes 81px without any apparent reason.

Currently the font sizes in the Spreadsheet are in pixels, while in Excel they are in points (pt). The values for the fontSize remains the same upon export / import. As a result, fonts in Excel appear lager than those in Spreadsheet.

Hello,

We are using Spreadsheet widget in our system and have following questions to meet the demands of our customers:

  1. How can the filters be limited to valid choices by type of column? For example a numeric column does not need Filter By Condition options by date or by text containing values.
  2. On initial drop down of the filter the Filter by Value section opens, since most of our columns are numeric that isn't useful. How could we collapse the filter by value option on initial opening of the filter?

Currently we use spreadsheet filtering configuration according to this example:

            $("#spreadsheet").kendoSpreadsheet({
                sheets: [
                {
                    name: "OrdersLog",
                    mergedCells: [
                        "A1:G1",
                        "A2:F2"
                    ],
                    filter: {
                        ref: "A3:G49",
                        columns:[]
                    },

Can you please provide us with working examples of configuration (or required code adjustments) that will help us to meet the requrements above?

The sheets bar should be configurable with some configuration options to control the ability to..

1. Add sheets

2. Remove sheets

3. Rename sheets

4. Reorder sheets

1. The top tab section (with the Home, Insert, Data, Undo, Redo) button of the toolbar should be configurable to be hidden, i.e. "single toolbar" configuration should be supported. Since it is possible to configure the toolbar to show custom items, it should also be possible to hide other tabs and the undo/redo button and only have a single toolbar as the configuration.

/* Style hack to hide the "Home/Insert/Data" tabstrip at the top of the spreadsheet. */
.k-spreadsheet-tabstrip.k-tabstrip {
    & > ul {
        display: none;
    }

    & .k-content {
        border-top: 0px;
    }
}

/**
 * Style hack to hide the undo/redo buttons in the quick-access toolbar.
 */
.k-tabstrip-wrapper .k-spreadsheet-quick-access-toolbar {
    display: none;

When we use custom validation for a cell using below method
kendo.spreadsheet.defineFunction("CUSTOM_VALIDATION", function(num){});
its triggered for each cell. Let say i have applied this validation method for 100 cells. If i changed any one cell then this method got invoked 100 times. Instead it should execute single time i.e, for that changed cell only. We cant keep 100 different methods for 100 cells. This will impact more on performance. Please look it on this and fix accordingly. 
This feature will be helpful for complex usage.

IF any custom validation available for spreadsheet cells, then while exporting the sheet, those validation error messages or formats not getting exported. So here it will be helpful if its exports validations too. So user can see error in both UI and Exported file. 
In the below example, user can see the error messages in ui but cant see on the exported file.
