    dhtmlxList is awesome component, however it would be good to have the following features:
    1. Infinite scrolling via ajax (ie paging by ajax)
    2. attach to other dhtmlxComponents especially layout and popup

    That’s an awsome library! I can’t find browsers you’re supporting, especially Internet Explorer version! ;) IE8+ ? Thanks for adding this info in your doc.

    • Ivan (DHTMLX team) November 6, 2015 at 5:45 pm

      Yes, it supports IE8. It even works on IE6+ now, but we’re planning to stop support IE6 and IE7.

    The dhtmlxSuite product is aching for full AngularJS support! Is this really an impossible technical challenge for the dhtmlx development team that it has no choice but to ignore the possible substantial sales/income it can earn from AngularJS developers?

    • Eduardo Almeida November 6, 2015 at 10:20 pm

      Hello Oscar,

      The DHTMLX framework is ‘framework agnostic’ .. it means you can use it with every framework you want.

      Regarding ‘to provide’ support for angular, it is not possible, but not due a DHTMLX fault

      In fact, Angular works over a model/paradigm that pretty differs from frameworks like DHTMLX, which implements built in components, and does NOT requires you to create components from the scratch using html ..

      This what Angular does.

      The divergent point is just one: the architectural paradigm.

      On an Angular application, you view is html template, or a meta template (Jade) …

      On a DHTMLX application, you view is a javascript class which instantiate DHTMLX components.

      Of course Angular is not only a template driven solution, it implements several other things, like routing and directives.

      Unfortunately, the Angular router can not be used, or at least, you will not take all it advantage if using with frameworks which implements built in components.

      The directives, is just a syntax sugar over binding and syncing components. In other words, directives are just the ‘Angular model’ of binding component / data …

      DHTMLX provides a full featured model and APIs for bind and sync.

      Regarding routing feature, I dont know any public project which implements MVC and routing for those type of applications. All routers I know implements the same paradigm: explicit or meta templates

      I’m writing one based on the Marionette API( http://marionettejs.com/ ) .. it is not done yet .. but you can preview the API and a demo usage here:

      API – http://pastebin.com/PadxYw07
      demo – http://pastebin.com/HZzbJtAQ

      Then in resume, I don’t see any sense in implement Angular support, even why, you can easly it in mix with DHTMLX .. what you can not, is to expect that Angular works friendly with a completely different paradigm
