    Good morning/afternoon

    I'm writing in regards of the blog post:

    It seems like the given snippet doesn't work as the mentioned function doesn't exists on the activeSheet instance, I've commented the post few days ago but I guess this is the right channel to address the problem.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Davide,

    The blog post refers to an older version of SpreadJs. In the current version(v12), we need to register our custom commands using the commandManager.register() method. Please refer to the following code snippet and the sample demonstrating the same:
    function registerCustomCommands(spread) {
    var commandManager = spread.commandManager();
    var editOnF2Command = {
    canUndo: false,
    execute: function(wbContext, options, isUndo) {
    var sheet = wbContext.getSheetFromName(options.sheetName);
    if (sheet) {
    return true;

    113, // key code for F2


    API reference:
    • register method: http://help.grapecity.com/spread/SpreadSheets12/webframe.html#SpreadJS~GC.Spread.Commands.CommandManager~register.html

    For any query or issues related to Spread.Sheets, please use the following support forum dedicated to Spread.Sheets discussions:

    Thanks Sharad,

    This solved my issue. I would suggest to place somewhere the referred version on the blog post so people don't get confused.
