Sencha GRUI is a perfect modern enterprise solution for React UI that includes 100+ data grid features. Sencha has rebuilt the Ext JS Javascript Grid from the ground up to use modern JavaScript and a whole new architecture that will deliver all the same great features and even better performance in an easy-to-use React API. The Ext React includes 140+ pre-built UI components that are fully supported and designed to work together seamlessly over the lifetime of the application. ExtReact supports React 15 and React 16, which can be useful when combined with Sencha GRUI to build React applications.

  • Here is a quick overview of some of the features:
  • Ability to handle millions of records.
  • Large feature set (filtering, grouping, infinite scrolling, and more).
  • Full customization control.
  • Data Export capabilities (CSV, tsv, HTML, pdf, xls).
  • Pre-tested across a wide range of platforms and browsers.
  • Easy UI component integration to the grid.

With incredibly fast data processing, massive amounts of data are never a problem. Utilizing client and server-side buffered stores, the Sencha DataGrid is able to load and manipulate large data sets within milliseconds!

Key Features

  • Virtual rendering of rows AND columns
  • Rendering of visible columns even when configuring an unlimited number of columns
  • Huge performance increase for large numbers of columns

Infinite Scrolling

  • Refreshes the viewed rows from the page cache as needed

  • The paging toolbar allows you to paginate forwards and backwards in the record sets with the slider buttons and input field

Column Drag and Drop

  • Reorder columns with the intuitive drag and drop interface

Column Editors

  • Each column can be edited, and you can create custom editors using React components.
