In MS Excel when you type a number you can easily go to other cells by using the arrow keys and type in another number, thus allowing for fast editing of the spreadsheet. This does not work in the spreadsheet component. this functionality only needs to work when not creating a formula.
Allow additional control over what a user can undo/redo, or a clearer way to control the undo/redo stack. Right now, users cannot undo more complex custom logic - i.e. a user deletes the content of a single cell which triggers code for us to clear the content of every cell in that row. When a user then attempts a single undo via keyboard shortcut, it cannot undo this more complex chain of events.
When using the bottom right corner of a cell to batch copy values across a range by dragging the corner, an error popup appears if a disabled cell is found inside the range that was dragged into. It is possible to reproduce this with this demo: https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/spreadsheet/disabled-cells 1. Set the quantity column to disabled. 2. Select B3. 3. Drag the bottom right corner of B3 to D3. 4. See error: "Destination range contains disabled cells." There should be an option to allow that to copy into any enabled cells in that range and ignore the disabled ones.
Allowing custom editors to be inline would be very helpful. In particular, inline editors using other Kendo controls (e.g. masked textbox, numeric textbox) should be possible.
Custom editors are great! But often when you have a custom editor, you want to restrict data entry to only use that editor, and not free-form typing in the cell. You can prevent free-form typing in the cell by disabling the cell, but then the custom editor button is no longer available. Suggestion is to still show custom editor button even if cell is disabled, perhaps with an additional setting; so that you could optionally not show the custom editor if the cell is disabled, since often a disabled cell should prevent any kind of modification.
Currently the spreadsheet dynamically creates the FilterMenu for a range, that is, it's not created until someone clicks the filter dropdown, and it's destroyed if they switched tabs. There is no event that is fired when these things happen, which makes it hard to attach to, and customize, the FilterMenu without setting up some crazy listening code (setTimeout, etc.). It would be great if either (or both: - You could specify a template for the filter menu. - You could listen for a "FilterMenu Initialized" event and capture the menu there and customize it.
The current context menu lets you hide a row or column, but then you cannot show it again, so the user can lose data. At present there is no context menu option to unhide it and there is no element indicating the column/row was there in the first place. This should behave like in Excel.
We have clients with large spreadsheets that print out across multiple pages, which can mean losing track of which column refers to what on new pages after a page break, so they want to be able to assign a row of column headers to be printed on new pages above each column to keep track
Currently if you access cells range programmatically, you can set background color, text color etc. It would be good to have the way to set classes or to get the DOM of the range. Another option would be to get DOM or set a class to individual cells (e.g. via range.forEachCell).
Presently in Spreadsheet tooltip is not working for filter applied range so tooltip should display for each cell in which the range of filter is applied
I know that Kendo Spreadsheet works like most popular Spreadsheets (Excel and Google Spreadsheet) where, if you copy or drag and paste values from cells, you will copy also the styles, validations, etc from that cell to the new one (unless you select "paste values only" in a context menu or ctrl + shift + v). It would be awesome if we can set how this works by configuring a property in the Spreadsheet configuration, something like pasteValuesOnly: false/true or even more complex with an object where you can choose if paste values, validations, formulas, styles or whatever. Also you could attach this functionalities to a context menu (as Google Spreadsheet does) and be able to paste everything, values only, format only, formulas or data validation.
DefaultCellStyle property in spreadsheet has a field “Wrap”, but doesn’t have a field “Format”. For example, if I need to process all cells as text, I must set the field “Format” on a client side: sheet.range("A1:AX200").wrap(true).format("@"); It works. But the initialization of the range ("A1:AX200") takes time… It is not very fast… It would be better to have the field “Format” in the DefaultCellStyle property in spreadsheet…
