ParamQuery Team is pleased to release version 2.2.0 of jQuery grid (ParamQuery grid) with many tempting features which make it behave like an Excel spreadsheet spreadsheet, most prominent among them are as follows:

1) Copy / paste functionality: At times we have useful data in an Excel spreadsheet, Google spreadsheet or any other spreadsheet program which we want to move to ParamQuery Grid easily. And at other times we wish to do the opposite i.e., we want to move the data from ParamQuery to those applications and sometimes to move the data from one ParamQuery spreadsheet to another ParamQuery spreadsheet! Copy / paste functionality of ParamQuery provides fuss free ability to do it with shortcut keys Ctrl - C, Ctrl - V, thus breaking the barrier between desktop applications and web applications. See it in action.

2) Support for undo / redo: Many a times we wish to revert the changes we recently made in the grid during inline editing, copy / paste or through addRow/updateRow/deleteRow API. It's during these moments that undo comes to the rescue and sends the grid data back in time :)
See it in action.

Please check the change log at github and API for 2.2.0 for more details.
