React Data Grid License key
Handsontable is available under Commercial and Free licenses, depending on your usage.
We require you to specify which terms apply to your usage, by passing a license key in Handsontable's
licenseKey configuration option.
If you use the paid version of Handsontable, pass the string of numbers delivered to you after the purchase. Note that the license key is a string, so you need to wrap it in quotes
<HotTable licenseKey="00000-00000-00000-00000-00000" />
If you use Handsontable for purposes not intended toward monetary compensation such as, but not limited to, teaching, academic research, evaluation, testing and experimentation, pass the string
<HotTable licenseKey="non-commercial-and-evaluation" />
The validation process
We validate the license key to determine whether you are entitled to use the software. To do that, we compare the time between two dates. These dates come from two sources of information. One is the
build date that is provided in each version of Handsontable. The other is the
creation date that comes with the license key. This process does not trigger any connection to any server.
If your license key is missing, invalid, or expired, Handsontable will display an appropriate notification. The notification is displayed in two places, below the table as HTML text and in the console. The messages are as follows:
Missing license key
