jQWidgets jqxGrid columnreordered Event

  • Last Updated : 03 Nov, 2021

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxGrid is used to illustrate a jQuery widget that shows data in tabular form. Moreover, it renders full support for connecting with data, as well as paging, grouping, sorting, filtering, and editing.

The columnreordered event is activated whenever a column of a displayed jqxGrid is shifted to a different locale.

Syntax:

$("#Selector").on("columnreordered", function (event) {

   // Arguments of the event
   var args = event.args;
   
   // Text of the column
   var columnText = args.columntext;
   
   // Data field of the column
   var dataField = args.datafield;
   
   // Index of the old column
   var oldIndex = args.oldindex;
   
   // Index of the new column
   var newIndex = args.newindex;
});
