jQuery - a cool, powerful grid!

One of the things I've always wanted the jQuery UI to have has been a grid control.
Alas, it is quite a way down the priority list.

Up until now, I've been using tablesorter, which has been very reliable and useful.
What it was missing was resizeable and moveable columns.

I have now found a jQuery grid control, slickgrid, that supports that plus much much more.

Some of its highlights are:
  • Resizable/reorderable columns

  • Custom cell formatting editing

  • Virtual scrolling. It can manage many thousands of rows of data, while only showing the rows needed

  • Very configurable and customisable
