Data grids enable users to perform operations such as:


  • Sorting data

  • Filtering data

  • Exporting data

  • In-cell editing

  • Pagination and many more


Data grids are data-driven and are built to handle high-performance business web applications. Features like filtering, sorting, and pagination in data grids make navigating large data sets easier.


In this article, we will discuss FusionGrid, which has two core value additions:


  • A powerful set of rich features
  • Easy implementation with FusionCharts Dashboards


Powerful Features


FusionGrid is a customizable Javascript data grid component for web and mobile applications. It allows you to build data grids in dashboards with the same elegance as Fusion Charts.


A charting library provides 100 charts and 2000 maps for your web and mobile applications. This framework has customization-rich grids that render well in browsers across desktops, tablets, and mobile devices.


As most of the web is accessed on mobile, approximately 54%, according to Statistica), it is essential not to leave it out of the development process.


FusionGrid is built on the most ubiquitous programming language on the web: Javascript. As more web applications are made with the highly dynamic Language, FusionGrid utilizes and takes advantage of it.

  • Column Grouping
  • Real-time Data Update
  • Row Sorting
  • Search/Quick filter
