Flexmonster configuration questions

Steve Pietrek asked on March 4, 2019

I do have additional questions from my client.

  1. Doex Flexmonster support a sidebar that ag-grid has? My client would like to see all the settings at once without having to click into a dialog. One thought I had was to create a custom one that gets displayed over the Flexmonster grid.
  2. Does Flexmonster support master/detail?
  3. Does Flexmonster support pagination?
  4. Does Flexmonster support floating filters like ag-grid? These filters are always visible on the screen.
  5. Does Flexmonster support column header groups? For example, be able to group a set of columns together under a single header group where the columns are tied to that parent and couldn’t be moved outside of the column group. See the last example, Dynamic Header Heights, here.
  6. Does Flexmonster support a Row Group Panel like ag-grid? See the Keeping Columns Visible example here. It allows the user to drag and drop the order and easily remove columns. This could be one where I create a custom panel which support drag/drop and removal.

Hello Steve,
Thank you for your questions. Could you please specify what of our tools you are comparing to ag-grid? Is it the pivot table from Flexmonster or the flat table? 
Please find our answers to your questions below:

  1. Our current Field List is implemented based on Flexmonster API calls. The rich variety of API calls allow implementing a sidebar on your own depending on the style of your application. Many of our clients decided to move such a way.
  2. The analog of master/detail feature in Flexmonster is a drill-through view. You can open it by either double-clicking on a cell or using the context menu. Please see the video example:
  3. The pagination approach is not applicable to the pivot table. Flexmonster was designed to operate with large data sets in a fast and smooth way. Therefore, the pagination is not necessary.
  4. You can implement the floating filter on your own. Here is an example:
  5. Such a thing can be implemented in Flexmonster Pivot Table using the hierarchy data type. Please find the example here:
  6. The drag n drop functionality is supported by default in our pivot table: You can try it on our demo: The drag n drop functionality can be also disabled if necessary.

Please note that most of our answers are only applicable to the are only applicable to the pivot table.
Let us know in case of any other question.
