# ManualRowMove

# Description

This plugin allows to change rows order. To make rows order persistent the Options#persistentState plugin should be enabled.

API:

  • moveRow - move single row to the new position.
  • moveRows - move many rows (as an array of indexes) to the new position.
  • dragRow - drag single row to the new position.
  • dragRows - drag many rows (as an array of indexes) to the new position.

Documentation explain differences between drag and move actions. Please keep in mind that if you want apply visual changes, you have to call manually the render method on the instance of Handsontable.
