You can drag and drop tree nodes from a treeview to a jqGrid instance, or in fact, to any HTML element on the page using the client-side API of the treeview. Note, that you can drag multiple nodes, but Ctrl+Clicking on nodes to select multiple nodes at once.

Switch theme:

Theming is based on the very popular jQuery ThemeRoller standard. This is the same theming mechanism used by jQuery UI and is now a de-facto standard for jQuery based components. The benefits of using ThemeRoller are huge. We can offer a big set of ready to use themes created by professional designers, including Windows-like themes (Redmond), Apple-like theme (Cupertino), etc. In addition to that any jQuery UI controls on the same page will pick the same theme.

Last, but not least, you can always roll your own ThemeRoller theme, using the superb Theme Editor

To use a theme, simply reference 2 Css files in your Html <head> section - the ThemeRoller theme you wish to use, and the jqGrid own ThemeRoller Css file. For example (Redmond theme):

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="/themes/redmond/jquery-ui-1.8.2.custom.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="/themes/ui.jqgrid.css" />
