  • v8.0.0-beta.2 Changes

    July 15, 2020

    We are excited to announce we have just released the second beta version of 8.0.0. This blog post describes changes that happened after the release of the first beta, for the previous changes please see the previous blog post.

    After implementing a new architecture for managing row and column indexes several parts of the library had te be adapted. It mainly includes adjusting the existing hooks to work properly with the new solution for managing the indexes. This is the last step before releasing a stable 8.0.0 version.

    Major changes

    We adapted the library to work with the new architecture for row and column management.

    ๐Ÿ’ฅ Breaking changes

    • ๐Ÿ”จ Changes related to the refactor of HiddenColumns and CollapsibleColumns. They will be compatible with upcoming IndexMappers #6547 along with other adjustments #6178:
      • Hidden indexes will no longer be rendered, as a consequence afterRenderer, modifyColWidth, beforeStretchingColumnWidth will be executable only on visible (meaning, rendered) rows and columns.
      • The getColWidth for hidden index will return 0 - it used to return 0.1. Also, it will no longer be called internally, the need can be now achieved by managers of rows and columns.
      • The modifyColWidth hook will not be called internally. However, it will be executed when the user will call the getColWidth.
      • Hidden indexes aren't rendered. As a consequence hooks beforeValueRender, beforeRenderer, afterRenderer, modifyColWidth, beforeStretchingColumnWidth etc. will be executed just for some of the columns (just the rendered ones).
      • listen function from the core API used to accept modifyDocumentFocus as optional parameter, this parameter was removed.
      • CustomBorders plugin was adapted to work with HiddenColumns properly, from now on hiding cells at the start or at the end of a range will also hide their borders. Also, hiding a single cell with borders will hide all of its borders. #7083.
      • CollapsibleColumns will no longer use HiddenColumns plugin to work. #6204
      • Refactored HiddenColumns to be compatible with upcoming IndexMappers. #6179
      • Renamed the following methods of the IndexMapper:
      • from getPhysicalIndex to getPhysicalFromVisualIndex
      • from getVisualIndex to getVisualFromPhysicalIndex
      • from isSkipped to isTrimmed
      • from getNotSkippedIndexes to getNotTrimmedIndexes
      • from getNotSkippedIndexesLength to getNotTrimmedIndexesLength
      • from SkipMap to TrimmingMap
      • from VisualIndexToPhysicalIndexMap to IndexesSequence.
      • hiddenRow and hiddenColumn hooks were removed. They were used to check if a given index is hidden in the HiddenColumns and HiddenRows plugins. Since now there may be more sources of hiding indexes they have been replaced by IndexMapper with the new isHidden method. It keeps the broad information about hidden indexes and their sources.
      • rowOffset and colOffset were removed since they aliased the methods from Walkontable #6547
    • ๐Ÿ”„ Changes related to adjusting HiddenRows to new IndexMapper architecture #6177:
      • Adjusted HiddenRows to new IndexMapper architecture.
      • Refactored the HiddenRows plugin. #6887
    • Selection behavior changed when hiding cells from the ContextMenu, now it is selecting a column on the right when there is space on right to the last selected column, selecting a column on the left otherwise. #6949
    • Developed a unified way to identify HOT "input" elements. All input elements owned by HOT got an attribute "data-hot-input" which are identified by that key. #6383.
    • ๐Ÿ”Œ NestedHeaders plugin was rewritten, from now on, only a tree-like structure will be allowed, meaning, there will be no possibility to place nested headers in-between layers #6716.
    • โž• Added modifySourceData hook and setSourceDataAtRowProp, setSourceDataAtCell methods. #6664
    • The right mouse button (RMB) click on the corner when there is no data will show all options disabled. This has two exceptions though: Insert column right and Insert row below when a table has data type defined by dataSchema as array, except Insert row right otherwise.
    • Left mouse button (LMB) click on the top left corner will now select all cells along with their headers.
    • โœ‚ Removed the experimental GanttChart plugin #7022

    Depraciations

    • ๐Ÿšš HeaderTooltips plugin becomes deprecated and will be removed in the next major version. #7023
    • ๐Ÿšš Internet Explorer support is deprecated and will be removed by the end of the year #7026

  • v8.0.0-beta.1 Changes

    November 14, 2019

    ๐Ÿ’ฅ Breaking changes

    We implemented a new architecture for row and column management.

    It allows an easier and more straightforward way to perform CRUD and moving operations on rows and columns. This change forced us to create some breaking changes:

    ๐Ÿ—„ The observeChanges plugin is no longer enabled by columnSorting and became deprecated.

    Modifying the table's data by reference and calling render() will not work properly anymore. From this point onward, all the data-related operations need to be performed using the API methods, such as populateFromArray or setDataAtCell.

    ๐Ÿšš The modifyRow, modifyCol, unmodifyRow, unmodifyCol and skipLengthCache hooks are no longer needed and were removed.

    ๐Ÿšš The manualColumnFreeze plugin doesn't use the manualColumnMove plugin anymore.

    ๐Ÿ”Œ The collapsibleColumns plugin doesn't use the hiddenColumns plugin anymore.

    ๐Ÿ”Œ The nestedRows plugin doesn't use the trimRows plugin anymore.

    ๐Ÿ”Œ The filters plugin doesn't use the trimRows plugin anymore.

    ๐Ÿ”Œ The minSpareRows and minRows options will ensure that the number of visible rows corresponds to the value provided to them (for example, the trimRows plugin won't have an impact on the number of displayed rows).

    Methods like toPhysicalRow, toVisualColumn, etc. now return null for non-existant rows/columns.

    The afterLoadData hook receives a different set of arguments. It used to be just the initialLoad flag, now the first argument is sourceData, followed by initialLoad.

    The manualColumnFreeze plugin will now put the unfrozen columns right next to the last frozen one.

    ๐Ÿšš The RecordTranslator object and the t property available in the plugins were removed.

    after-prefixed hooks (afterLoadData, afterFilter, etc.) are now called just before the render call.

    Newly created rows and columns are now placed in the source data in the place calculated from its position in the visual context (they "stick" to their adjacent rows/columns). It also applies to moved rows and columns.

    ๐Ÿšš When the nestedRows plugin is enabled, moving rows will be possible only using the UI or by calling the dragRows method of the manualRowMove plugin.

    ๐Ÿ‘€ For more in-depth information about these changes, see the description of pull request #5945. (#5751)

    The beforeRowResize, afterRowResize, beforeColumnResize, afterColumnResize hooks have the order of their arguments rearranged for the sake of consistency with other hooks:

    Was:
    (currentIndex: number, newSize: number, isDoubleClick: boolean)

    Is:

    (newSize: number, index: number, isDoubleClick: boolean)

    (#3328)

    ๐Ÿ”„ Change the argument structure in collapsibleColumns' toggleCollapsibleSection method.

    Was:

    (coords: object, action: string)

    Is:

    coords: Array<object>, action: string)

    (#6193)

    ๐Ÿ†• New features (also present in the upcoming version 7.3.0)

    • ๐Ÿ”Œ We're introducing a new option to the Context Menu plugin - uiContainer. It allows declaring a DOM container, where all the Context Menu's element will be placed. It may come espacially handy when using Handsontable inside of an iframe or some other content-trimming context. (#6283, #6417)
    • ๐Ÿ”Œ We also added a uiContainer option to the Copy/Paste plugin. It works in a similar way to the one described above, but is used to declare the container for the Copy/Paste plugin's DOM elements. (#6343)

    ๐Ÿ”„ Changes

    • Resolved a problem with data not being added to the table properly with the columnSorting option enabled. (#2685)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed a problem with loadData not resetting the row order changed by the manualRowMove plugin. (#3568)
