[regression] Reduce measurements in the grid

Reported by: Kris Zyp Owned by: Bryan Forbes
Priority: high Milestone: 2.0
Component: DojoX Grid Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: 14open Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


One the primary performance bottlenecks for the grid is the extensive measurements that are performed for laying out the rows/cells in the grid. Measurements are extremely expensive operations (because they require the browser to layout the DOM and compute widths and heights). I believe the grid could be much more efficient and fast if these measurements could be reduced.

I am attaching a patch that caches some measurements where possible and introduces a new property on the grid, "rowHeight", which can be used to set a static height for the rows. This property can be set and provide a means for eliminating the need for many of the height measurements that take place during rendering.

Any idea why the changeset didn't connect to the ticket?

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by dante

@kzyp - no, but sometimes we "lose sync". Always a good idea to doublecheck. You would have received an email presumably showing the resolution change had post-commit done it's work.

I went revision-by-revision and as of [19976], DataGrids? in TabContainers? stopped appearing entirely in Safari 4 and FF 3.5.

  1. Go to
  2. Click the "Markup structure" tab

You do not see a DataGrid? in the tab! IE8 is unaffected by this bug.

DojoX Grid and EnhancedGrid are deprecated in favor of dgrid and gridx.

You should upgrade your code to use one of those two grids.

We will consider patches to the old DojoX Grid code though.
