Column Methods

Version 5.5.5 introduced set_grid_method() method. You can use this method to call any jqGrid javascript method that can perform actions on the grid as a whole. However, it’s not possible to manipulate the grid on a row or cell level using set_grid_method.

The example below demonstrates set_grid_method to grouping header by calling the jqGrid “setGroupHeader” method.

$dg = new C_DataGrid("SELECT * FROM payments", "customerNumber", "orders");

$dg->set_col_width("customerNumber", 30);
$dg->set_col_width("checkNumber",50);
$dg->set_col_width("amount",50);

$dg->set_grid_method('setGroupHeaders',
                        array(
