How to count number of row and column ?

Patrick TAVARIS asked on November 6, 2019

I need to be able to grab values of all totalCol/rows cells.
First I have tried to use customizeCellFunction but I realized that this method is called only when the cells are drawn. If the pivoTable is  big and contains scrollbars, I won’t be able to use this custmzeCellFunction to grab my values on page load.
So I found aftergriddraw event which sounds to be the good place to know when the dataset and flexmonster table is loaded.
In this event caught, I need to use getCell() to grab requested values but here is the issue. I don’t know how to grab the rows count and column count to getCell() only on the total rows+cols.
How can I do that ?
Maybe there is another way to get total cells values aftergriddraw ? (without being forced to scroll the pivotTable front end side)

Thank you for writing to us.
For your case, we kindly suggest using the getData() API call:

1) You can pass a separate slice to getData() with only measures specified:
This way it will be easier to get the grand total values.

2) Also, you can pass a default slice to getData() and retrieve any other needed data values:
Please let us know if you have any questions.

Hi Vera,
I don’t see any clue in your jsfiddle sample neither with usage of getData().
What i want to do is when reportcomplete() event is caught, determinate total number of rows in the pivotTable (already displayed or not due to a potential scrollbar).
Then with this number retrieved, I can call getCell on this last line and do what I need to do for the purpose of my app.
Am I making sense ?
So I have to keep using getCell() blindly (currently) until I find the lastRow+1 telling me it is not filled.
I hope you will have a better idea for me.

Thank you for your reply and for providing more details regarding your case.
Flexmonster has special API calls for retrieving the total grid column count:


and grid row count:


Here is a JSFiddle example for illustration:
