Navigate your way. Sidebar and Sidemenu

Hi everybody. Today we will be speaking about Webix ways to optimize server-client communication in case of huge data. Those of you who are happy to fetch long datasets at once, please raise your hands!

Webix dynamic loading

 

Just as I’ve expected, nobody’s here.  Everybody has gone to dynamic loading which is implemented very easily with Webix data components.

webix.ui({
    view:"datatable", url:"mydata.php", datafetch:100
});

Initially, a limited number of records (e.g. 100) is loaded, while further requests are triggered by scrolling or paging automatically. Guys, isn’t it nice?

Still, such a pattern requires quite a specific format of a server response –  {data:[ /*array of records*/], pos:0, total_count:100  } – and you may ask yourself: “So what should I do, if I cannot tune the response or I don’t know the total length of server-side data?” Indeed, there are lots of web services that do not provide such information.

The article below shows the solution that relies totally on Webix public API and can be built by any of you. Read more

Webix 3.2 released

 

And definitely we would like to start with the most important part of our release – the new widget.

Spreadsheet widget

The truly outstanding hallmark of the February release is a feature-rich Spreadsheet widget that allows editing data in Excel-like manner. Being fully client-side it can load data either from plain JSON or database or even Excel document.

Spreadsheet allows you not only to format text values within cells but also define custom dimensions for cells, merge them into spans, copypaste the cells as well as calculate their values using Excel mathematical functions.  During data editing you can revert all the changes you’ve made and apply them back, if needed.
