After cell editing the grid you have the opportunity to parse the value before inserting it into your data. This is done using Value Parsers.
A Value Parser is the inverse of a Value Formatter.
Example Value Parser
Below shows an example using value parsers. The following can be noted:
- All columns are editable. After any edit, the console prints the new data for that row.
- Column 'Name' is a string column. No parser is needed.
- Column 'Bad Number' is bad because after an edit, the value is stored as a string in the data, whereas the data value should be number type.
- Column 'Good Number' is good because after an edit, teh value is converted to a number using the value parser.
Value Parser Return Value
The return value of a value parser should be the result of the parse, i.e. return the value you want stored in the data.
Value Parser Parameters
