Dhtmlxgrid uses ajax to load data dynamically, so grid records can be sorted and edited without page reload. Searching, filtering and grouping capabilities are also supported.
To allow greater flexibility, dhtmlxgrid uses unique mechanism called excell (extended cell) to define data format and the way of editing data for each cell. The grid already supports a wide variety of cell formats such as text, image, combo box, list box, checkbox, radio button, calendar, etc.
