# 8.0.0

Released on 5th of August, 2020

Major changes

This version introduces a completely new architecture for row and column management - index mapper, which is responsible for the storage and management of index values. In prior versions, the calculation between physical and visual indexes was based on callbacks between hooks. That solution slowly led to inconsistencies and the calculation was imperfect in some cases. To fix that there was a major change in the whole system of mapping the indexes. The current solution offers an easier and more straightforward way to perform CRUD and move operations on rows and columns. It keeps all data in one place so getting and managing information is easier and less prone to bugs.

The existing features were adapted to benefit from the new architecture. Apart from that, extra methods and hooks were added and there are few depreciations and removals, too.

Breaking changes

  • Modifying the table's data by reference and calling render() will not work properly anymore. From this point onward, all the data-related operations need to be performed using the API methods, such as populateFromArray or setDataAtCell.
  • The modifyRow, modifyCol, unmodifyRow, unmodifyCol hooks are no longer needed and were removed. Their functionality can be achived by using API. More information in the 8.0.0 migration guide (opens new window).
  • skipLengthCache hook was removed, indexMapper is now responsible for the cache and length.
  • The manualColumnFreeze plugin doesn't use the manualColumnMove plugin anymore.
  • The collapsibleColumns plugin doesn't use the hiddenColumns plugin anymore.
  • The nestedRows and filters plugins don't use the trimRows plugin anymore.
  • The minSpareRows and minRows options will ensure that the number of visible rows corresponds to the value provided to them (for example, the trimRows plugin won't have an impact on the number of displayed rows).
  • toPhysicalRow and toVisualColumn now return null for non-existant rows/columns. #5945 (opens new window)).
  • The afterLoadData hook receives a different set of arguments. It used to be just the initialLoad flag, now the first argument is sourceData, followed by initialLoad.
  • The manualColumnFreeze plugin will now put the unfrozen columns right next to the last frozen one.
  • The RecordTranslator object and the t property available in the plugins were removed.
  • After-prefixed hooks (afterLoadData, afterFilter, etc.) are now called just before the render call.
  • Newly created rows and columns are now placed in the source data in the place calculated from its position in the visual context (they "stick" to their adjacent rows/columns). It also applies to moved rows and columns.
  • When the nestedRows plugin is enabled, moving rows will be possible only using the UI or by calling the dragRows method of the manualRowMove plugin.
  • The beforeRowResize, afterRowResize, beforeColumnResize, afterColumnResize hooks have the order of their arguments rearranged for the sake of consistency with other hooks and to fix an issue where multiple hooks didn't get the modified value in the pipeline: #3328 (opens new window).
  • Changed the argument structure in collapsibleColumns' toggleCollapsibleSection method: #6193 (opens new window).
  • The following sublist shows changes related to the refactor of HiddenColumns and CollapsibleColumns. They will be compatible with upcoming IndexMappers #5945 (opens new window) along with other adjustments #6547 (opens new window):
    • Hidden indexes aren’t rendered. As a consequence hooks beforeValueRender, beforeRenderer, afterRenderer, modifyColWidth, beforeStretchingColumnWidth etc. will be executed just for some of the columns (just the rendered ones).
    • The getColWidth for hidden index will return 0 – it used to return 0.1. Also, it will no longer be called internally, the need can be now achieved by managers of rows and columns.
    • The modifyColWidth hook will not be called internally. However, it will be executed when the user will call the getColWidth.
    • Hidden indexes aren't rendered. As a consequence hooks beforeValueRender, beforeRenderer, afterRenderer, modifyColWidth, beforeStretchingColumnWidth etc. will be executed just for some of the columns (just the rendered ones).
    • listen function from the core API used to accept modifyDocumentFocus as optional parameter, this parameter was removed.
    • CustomBorders plugin was adapted to work with HiddenColumns properly. From now on hiding cells at the start or the end of the range will also hide their borders. Hiding a single cell with borders will hide all of its borders. #7083 (opens new window).
    • CollapsibleColumns will no longer use HiddenColumns plugin to work. #6204 (opens new window).
    • Adjusted HiddenColumns to be compatible with upcoming IndexMappers. #6547 (opens new window).
    • hiddenRow and hiddenColumn hooks were removed. They were used to check if a given index is hidden in the HiddenColumns and HiddenRows plugins. Since now there may be more sources of hiding indexes they have been replaced by IndexMapper with the new isHidden method. It keeps the broad information about hidden indexes and their sources.
    • rowOffset and colOffset were removed since they aliased the methods from Walkontable. #6547 (opens new window).
  • Changes related to adjusting HiddenRows to new IndexMapper architecture are #6177 (opens new window):
  • Developed a unified way to identify HOT "input" elements. All input elements owned by HOT got an attribute "data-hot-input" which are identified by that key. #6383 (opens new window).
  • NestedHeaders plugin was rewritten, from now on, only a tree-like structure will be allowed, meaning, there will be no possibility to place nested headers in-between layers. #6716 (opens new window)
  • The right mouse button (RMB) click on the corner when there is no data will show all options disabled. #6547 (opens new window).
  • Left mouse button (LMB) click on the top left corner will now select all cells along with their headers. #6547 (opens new window).
  • Removed the experimental GanttChart plugin. #7022 (opens new window).
  • Adding properties which were not defined on initialization or by updateSettings to the source data is possible only by the usage of setSourceDataAtCell. #6664 (opens new window).
  • Passing columns or data inside the settings object when calling the updateSettings method will result in resetting states corresponding to rows and columns (ie. row/column sequence, column width, row height, freezed columns etc.). The same behavior can be seen when using loadData. In such cases, it is assumed that a new dataset is introduced upon calling updateSettings or loadData .#6547 (opens new window).
