beforeColumnDelete

caution

The beforeColumnDelete event has been deprecated in v4.3. The event will continue work, but you'd better apply a new approach:

spreadsheet.events.on("beforeAction", (actionName, config) => {
if (actionName === "deleteColumn") {
console.log(actionName, config);
return false;
}
});

For more details about the new concept, see Spreadsheet actions.

Description

Fires before a column is deleted

Usage

beforeColumnDelete: (cell: string) => void | boolean;

Parameters

The callback of the event takes the following parameters:

  • cell - (required) the id of a cell

Returns

Return true to delete a column, false to prevent deleting of a column

Example

const spreadsheet = new dhx.Spreadsheet("spreadsheet", {
// config parameters
});
// subscribe on the "beforeColumnDelete" event
spreadsheet.events.on("beforeColumnDelete", function(cell){
console.log("A column will be deleted");
console.log(cell);
return true;
});
