header format

Sets or retrieves the data format converter for the grid column headers (header format).

Format converters are used to perform client-side data transformations, for example, encode html control characters or apply particular date or number formats.

Syntax

var value = obj.getHeaderFormat(); 
obj.setHeaderFormat(value);        

obj.onHeaderFormatChanging = function(value){...}; 
obj.onHeaderFormatChanged = function(value){...}; 
obj.onHeaderFormatError = function(value){...}; 

Defined in

header model

Examples

Encoding html control characters (<, >, ", &).

obj.setHeaderData("<header text>", 0);
obj.setHeaderFormat(new AW.Formats.String, 0);
obj.setHeaderText(function(i){
    var data = this.getHeaderData(i);
    var format = this.getHeaderFormat(i);
    return format ? format.dataToText(data) : data;
});

Applying number format

var number = new AW.Formats.Number;
number.setTextFormat("$ #,###.##");

obj.setHeaderData("1234567.890", 0);
obj.setHeaderFormat(number, 0);
obj.setHeaderText(function(i){
    var data = this.getHeaderData(i);
    var format = this.getHeaderFormat(i);
    return format ? format.dataToText(data) : data;
});

Remarks

To activate the data/text transformations set the header text property to the converter function, like in example above.
