    • field: the id in the column / of the data

    • editor: default: readonly, can be text, uprules, downrules, date, select (needs an array with options), versionletter, user, textline, design, ...

    • options: (for select) array with id, name pairs, for rules: singleSelect:true, showTitle:true

  • canBeModified: true, // if true, rows can be added and moved,

  • create: true, // if canBeModified also can add lines (with little icon)

  • showLineNumbers: true, // whether to show line numbers in front of each row

  • maxRows: -1, // if set to a value other than -1, the maximum number of rows which can be created

  • readonly_allowfocus: false // whether not editable cells can get focus (e.g. with tab)
