beforeSheetAdd

caution

The beforeSheetAdd 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 === "addSheet") {
console.log(actionName, config);
return false;
}
});

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

Description

Fires before a new sheet is added

Usage

beforeSheetAdd: (name: string) => void | boolean;

Parameters

The callback of the event takes the following parameters:

  • name - (required) the name of the new sheet

Returns

Return true to add a sheet, false to prevent adding of a sheet

Example

const spreadsheet = new dhx.Spreadsheet("spreadsheet", {
// config parameters
});
// subscribe on the "beforeSheetAdd" event
spreadsheet.events.on("beforeSheetAdd", function(name) {
console.log("A new sheet will be added");
console.log(name);
return true;
});

Changelog: Added in v4.1
