Hi,

The component documentation has a widget named GridContainerJSON
However, this widget is not in that component. Is that component still under development?

Thank you

Hi Ferhat,

Thanks for pointing it out.

We considered having such an approach but, in the end, we opted for not implementing this feature. Unfortunately, we didn't remove the reference from the documentation. We'll release a new version without this reference there. 

Nevertheless, do you feel the need for such a feature?

Looking forward to hearing back from you,

Ricardo Alves

Hi Alves,

In my opinion, it would be nice.
Actually, we wanted to use it on our application but couldn't find the widget with direct JSON.

I'm just curious about the background of that idea why you didn't want to build that widget?
At the moment I need to create an additional REST API.

I wish I could use it like table records. In preparation, I get my records then serialize JSON.
It's less effort than building a REST API

Best Regards

Hi Ferhat,

We decided to put that particular feature on hold since it had lots of performance issues.

Nevertheless, we're improving the component still, and we'll be adding more capabilities as well. We know that there are some development issues and we intend to address them.

Please keep giving us your feedback, so that we can keep going in the right direction.

Regards,

Ricardo Alves
