Instead of this:
{name:'lastname', label: 'Last Name', index:'lastname', width:200},
{name:'firstname', label: 'First Name', index:'firstname', width:250},

Open in new window


I essentially want: Last Name, First Name

have a look at the Custom Formatter option

example:

function myFormatter(cellvalue, options, rowObject){
    return rowObject.firstName + " " + rowObject.lastName;
}

Open in new window

Thank you. I just can't seem to figure out how to incorporate that into my grid as a column.

Is it a new column? i.e.

{name: 'fullname', formatter:myFormatter, index... then what?}

i believe you would do something like this:

{name:'fullName', label: 'Full Name', index:'fullName', width:200, formatter:'myFormatter'},

function myFormatter(cellvalue, options, rowObject){
    return rowObject.firstName + " " + rowObject.lastName;
}

Open in new window

That has a column with 'undefined' as the values. I'm stumped.

This was correct, I just had to lower case the 'n'. I had to place the function about my document.ready as well. Thanks so much.
