Cell Spanning Columns

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fd2cf416550>

Hi there @aleksandra_budnik

Is this possible? Having a cell span over 2…n columns?


This is a screen shot of a handsontable that I’ve manually hacked within the inspector, adding a colspan="2" to the DOM.

I can’t seem to find a way to do this properly through the API. How would I go about this?

To be honest, we have spent some time to find a way to do it, but it hasn’t been implemented to Handsontable yet. We’re testing it for the spread viewer, which is not a beta yet.

Oh heck! OK, thanks @aleksandra_budnik

Hey again Phil,

I had a second thought - might merging https://handsontable.com/docs/7.1.0/demo-merged-cells.html fit your needs?

I’m on 6.1.1 @aleksandra_budnik

merging is nearly as old as Handsontable itself - works for 6.1.1 as well https://handsontable.com/docs/6.1.1/demo-merged-cells.html

Oh! I see what you mean @aleksandra_budnik.
I thought you were talking about merging a PR for future features to make this work.

That could be exactly what I want!!! Checking it out now.

Hey Phil,

haven’t talked for a while. Did you had time to try the mergeCells?

I think that we can close the issue as there’s no response for more than 3 weeks.
