ParamQuery is a lightweight yet advanced web based javascript control for desktop, laptop or mobile phones

It supports important spreadsheet features like Autofill, unlimited worksheeets, cross worksheet calculations, most of the commonly used Excel formulas, styles, dates and number formatting, comments, import from and export to Excel xlsx, csv format, merged cells, etc.

Every cell, row and column in spreadsheet corresponds to plain javascript object. In fact whole spreadsheet is designed around a simple JSON model which is fully scriptable providing full flexibility and interactivity at your coding fingertips. Consider this similar to VB scripting for MS Excel and Apps scripting for Google spreadsheets.

Even more, after opening a xlsx spreadsheet, it can be used as a simple grid or a treegrid and vice versa. Most features of spreadsheet and other modules are interoperable which is unique to ParamQuery thus abolishing the boundaries between grid, treegrid and spreadsheet applications.


This example is based on mock data for demonstration purpose only.
