Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

The problem with adding a feature like this is it prevents incremental rendering of the grid. That is, you would need to download and render all the rows (could be in the millions) rather than using the scrolling and paging that the grid provides. This would be an extremely heavy burden on your page.

If you would like to attach a patch and a test case, we may consider adding it as an option. However, given the direction that the grid is currently heading, I am closing this for now as wontfix. You can reopen it when you have a patch and test case provided.
