Update Settings on the Go

jExcel offers a native feature to customize your table on the go. You can define the method updateSettings to create a parser and customize the data should be shown to the user, as the example below.

// Live update of the settings
$('#my').jexcel('updateSettings', {
    table: function (instance, cell, col, row, val, id) {
        if (col == 2 || col == 3) {
            // Get text
            txt = $(cell).text();
            // Format text
            txt = numeral(txt).format('0,0.00');
            // Update cell value
            $(cell).html(' $ ' + txt);
        }
    }
});
