afterFilter - distinguishing user triggered changes from programmatic changes

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f2495aed010>

Hi,

"@handsontable/react": "^11.0.1",
"handsontable": "^11.0.1",

I’m trying to save filter settings in state to restore filters when react component update.
I use afterFilter hook to save filterStack to state and then when I need to restore it, I use

  const plu = hot.getPlugin('Filters');
  plu.clearConditions();
  for (const filter of this.state.filterStack) {
    plu.addCondition(filter.column, filter.conditions[0].name, filter.conditions[0].args[0]);
  } 
  plu.filter();

The problem is that when I run filter(), this also triggers afterFilter and I get into a loop.

Is there any way to distinguish whether afterFilter was caused by user action or by programmatic change?

Thank you,

Unfortunately at the moment React state management isn’t working as it should with Handsontable, you can read more about this topic here: https://github.com/handsontable/handsontable/issues/8372

We will address that issue as soon as possible.

I am happy to announce that the epic at https://github.com/handsontable/handsontable/issues/8372 is solved in v12. If you would have any issues with updating to the newest version please contact us at support@handsontable.com
