Book Description

jqGrid is a JS library built with the principles of power and flexibility, and it fully embraces the open source community. It makes no preconceptions on how you should use it, and it gives you the opportunity to showcase and manipulate your data from the front end itself, thereby gaining independence from server-side technology and a database back end.

Instant jqGrid invites you into the world of possibilities provided by jqGrid. Starting from the most humble of setups, we move on to adding controls, captions, and features, turning a simple table element into a living component on your page.

Instant jqGrid introduces you to the vast library of options jqGrid has to offer. You will start from scratch and progress through the most common scenarios. You will learn how to take data and not only display it, but manipulate it from the front end itself. You will cover topics such as validation and persisting changes to the back end, and you will learn how to further extend your setup with special functions and events. By the end of Instant jqGrid, you will know how a lot of it works, but more importantly, you will know where to find the things you need.
