Recently, I was working on tweaking performance for some of our grids and I needed to access and modify handsontable instance to achieve my goals. Naturally, I turned to ‘beforeInit’ hook but after looking at the profiler output, I realised that there is a bunch of code that gets executed before my callback is reached (If need be, I can elaborate more, but suffice it to say that there is already a large number of handlers assigned to beforeInit, and I need a way to execute my code before they run).
The workaround that I ended up using is to instantiate
Handsontable.Core directly and then do my tweaks before calling instance.init() myself (see screenshot of the original Handsontable constructor below for reference), but that is a non-standard way to instantiate handsontable and I would like to request a (hook, callback?) that is officially sanctioned and documented to achieve the same result.
Thanks in advance,
