HTML5 Data Grid: Master Detail, Input Validation and More (Coming soon in v14.2)

We launched our HTML 5 Data Grid in June of this year. With this update, we've extended and refined its capabilities with the following new features. Master-detail mode, validation and many more.

Master Detail

The name of this feature says it all...The grid now supports master-detail so you can deliver information rich user experiences in your next web app.

Data Summaries

Our HTML 5 Data Grid can now display total and group summary information for all rows within a column. Total summaries are displayed within the grid footer. Group summaries can be displayed within grouped rows or as a group footers.

Input Validation

The Data Grid fully supports DevExtreme's HTML5 Input Validation engine, allowing you to specify rules . The rules can be defined for grid columns directly within the grid’s configuration object.

Additional Enhancements

  • New data filter mode: End-users can specify filters for multiple columns and apply them simultaneously.
  • New "cell" editing mode: Once end-users edit an individual cell, its input value will be committed to the server immediately.
  • Navigation buttons and information on the currently viewed grid page have been added to the pager.
  • Improved performance (as a result of partial rendering).


As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts...let us know what you think of these new features.
