jQWidgets jqxTreeGrid cellBeginEdit Event

  • Last Updated : 22 Oct, 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 jqxTreeGrid is used for representing data in a tree-like structure. This widget is useful for displaying multi-column of hierarchical data, data paging, sorting and filtering, data editing, column resizing, fixed columns, conditional formatting, aggregates, and rows selection. These widgets also read and display the data from any type of data source such as XML, JSON, Array, CSV, or TSV.

The cellBeginEdit event is triggered when a cell editing of the specified jqxTreeGrid is started. This event will work when the ‘editSingleCell‘ sub- property is set to true inside the ‘editSettings‘ property.

Syntax:

$('#jqxTreeGrid').on('cellBeginEdit',  function (event)
{
    // Argument of the Event
    var args = event.args;
    
    // Key of the row
    var rowKey = args.key;
    
    // Data of the row
    var row = args.row;
    
    // Data field of the cell
    var columnDataField = args.dataField;
    
    // Display field of the column
    var columnDisplayField = args.displayField;
    
    // Value of the cell
    var value = args.value;
});
