What's New in SpreadJS 11

SpreadJS v11 - December 6, 2017

SpreadJS 11's set of JavaScript libraries has been enhanced to solve even more of your spreadsheet and data grid needs. We have fixed customer-reported issues and added a few different enhancements that will make SpreadJS the only spreadsheet component you will need.

Chart Support

Spread Sheets can now successfully import and export Excel files with charts. With Spread Sheets, customers can make changes to those charts, and developers are given the tools to add and edit charts with the Spread Sheets Designer. New charts include column, bar, line, pie, doughnut, area, scatter, bubble, stock, and combination.

SpreadJS v11.1 - April 25, 2018

Undo/Redo enhancement

In previous versions, undo and redo for custom commands had to be handled with multiple functions. Now the user only needs to define the "execute" function, making it much simpler.

FilterDialog UI enhancement

SpreadJS now supports tree hierarchies in the filter dialog, useful for dates and outlines. The hierarchies support conditional filters like text, number, and date, as well as color.

Protection Options Enhancement

More protection options have been added to the sheet, including allowDragInsertRows/Columns, allowInsertRows/Columns, and allowDeleteRows/Columns. These options can also be set in the designer.

Custom IconSet

You can now add custom icons for individual IconCriterion in a custom icon set.

Diagonal line

Diagonal line borders are now supported in cells and ranges. Several line styles are included, and they're supported in JSON serialize/deserialize, ExcelIO, and printing.

Vertical text

SpreadJS now supports vertical text in cells, just like Excel. Properties include alignment, indent, word-wrap, etc.

Double underline

This feature is similar to the single underline support currently in SJS, but now provides a double underline option—ideal for any financial or accounting application. This also works well with the Cell Alignment, ForeColor, WordWrap, Indent, ShrinkToFit, and CellOverflow options.
