jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxGrid is used to illustrate a jQuery widget that shows data in tabular form. Moreover, it renders full support for connecting with data, as well as paging, grouping, sorting, filtering, and editing.

The setcolumnproperty() method is used to set a property of a specified column in the displayed jqxGrid. However, the viable names of the property are ‘text’, ‘hidden’, ‘hideable’, ‘renderer’, ‘cellsrenderer’, ‘align’, ‘cellsalign’, ‘cellsformat’, ‘pinned’, ‘contenttype’, ‘resizable’, ‘filterable’, ‘editable’, ‘cellclassname’, ‘classname’, ‘width’, ‘minwidth’, and ‘maxwidth’. It does not returns anything.

Syntax:

$('Selector').jqxGrid('setcolumnproperty', 
    dataField, propertyName, propertyValue);

Parameters:

  • dataField: It is the stated data field of the column which is of type string.
  • propertyName:  It is the stated property name for the column which is of type string.
  • propertyValue: It is the stated property value which is of type Object.
