Currently the API is very much limited to what is possible in the frontend in my opinion. It would be great if you could add events like: - A cell/range was selected - A cell was cut/pasted/copied - The context menu was initialized - A row/column was added - A row was added/deleted/hidden - A cell's content was modified ... ...
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.
Define by Settings or via API Calls custom context Menu for any Cell, like change current by Event BeforeContextMenu(ref ContextMenuElement)
On excel, you can filter merged rows. On the kendo spreadsheet widget, filtering on merged rows is not possible. It would be a very useful feature for us. Also worth noting is that if you convert an excel file to JSON using Telerik RadSpreadProcessing, and load the kendo widget with the JSON, the widget displays a filter icon but clicking it loads a non-functioning filter. Wouldn't it make more sense to load with a message along the lines of 'You loaded a spreadsheet with filters applied to merged rows, which is not supported in this widget'. Otherwise it's quite confusing to our users.
It would be great if you would add accessabbility to the spreadsheet as it seems to be the last control without this feature.
Currently the focus gets trapped inside its grid and the user cannot leave the spreadsheet with the TAB key. At least this should be avoided. It would be also better if only the first cell would be focusable and you then could navigate with the arrow keys, as with thousands of cells it is not very comfortable to use the TAB key.
When a string, used as old_text for SUBSTITUTE(text, old_text, new_text, [instance_num]) function, is repeated more than once and the new_text is an empty string, one occurrence of the old_text remains not substituted.
=SUBSTITUTE(A1, "ab", "")
ab with another string, e.g.
cd, replaces all instances of
ab as expected.
113ab11 - when ab is repeated more than once in a row, one of its instances remains unchanged to an empty string
Additional functionality for: -- Conditional Formatting -- coloring of cells, for example based upon a value and then be able to import from excel, and export back out. -- Data Validation (dropdowns). Also be able to import and export back out.
Client-side exported Excel workbooks are exported "uncompressed" (as readable text) and their size is much greater than the original document.

2. Click Background or Text Color icon , select custom color
3. See the popup UI , there is boarder and margin issues, boarder is visible on top,left & bottom side but not on right side
2. Copy from F3:F15
3. Paste as value (ctrl+shift+v) in H3
4. See it pasted only non-empty cells
Empty cells values should be pasted as well as Excel does.
When a cell/row is selected, its first cell is focused and the sheet is scrolled to show it. If a long sheet is scrolled down/right to edit cells, this scroll top/left is very annoying and user unfriendly.
In these scenarios Excel focuses the topmost/leftmost currently visible cell, avoiding sheet scrolling.
NOTE: for rows reproduction select cell AX2, then click on the header of row 2 - sheet is scrolled to the left and cell A2 is focused.
Column C is selected, cell C1 is focused and the sheet is scrolled to top.
The used has to scroll down to the bottom row again to edit data at the bottom of the sheet.
Column C is selected. The currently visible topmost cell of column C is focused, without scrolling the sheet. Excel works that way
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.
