Updating to the latest version

Updating Flexmonster Pivot Table & Charts to the latest version is a very simple process requiring just a couple of steps:

    2. Unzip the files from the package.
    3. Replace your flexmonster/ folder with the new one (you can find it in the component/ directory or in the client/ directory – depending on the type of package that you downloaded).
  • Update via npm package manager:
    Run this command to update the Flexmonster node module:
    npm update flexmonster --save
    
  • If you are updating from a previous major version to 2.8, check out the Migration guide from 2.7 to 2.8.
  • To ensure that you updated the component, you can check the component’s version by clicking on the grid and pressing Ctrl+Alt+i. The information about the version of the component and its edition will be shown in the pop-up window.
