Copy & Paste strange behaviour


I just downloaded and test dhtmlxSpreadsheet. It works fine except for a strange behaviour of copy & paste.
I tried to copy some columns from an EXCEL sheet and paste into the DHX sheet.
It does not work (on my application, I tried also the samples attached to code).
Debugging on Firefox I get the following Javascript Error:
TypeError: this._copydump.outside is null.
Paste inside a cell works fine (but the selection fills just one cell and not multiple cells as I want).
The example on DHX dhtmlxSpreadsheet page works fine.
I discovered that if I copy a selection of cells from DHX sheet to Excel file it works. But, more strange :astonished: , if now I copy cells back from Excel (not the same) , I can paste them in the DHX sheet.This works until I refresh the web page that contains the DHX sheet. After the refresh , the behaviour is reset to initial (no working).
The version of dhtmlxSpreadsheet is 2.1 (downloaded from the web page). I tried Firefox and Safari with the same results (I am using an Apple Mac).
Any suggestion is welcome

Hi et sorry for my bad English

Thanks for your nice job.

I have the save problem when I want to delete cells with Del touch.
You can test here : … _init.html

I tried Firefox Mac, Safari Mac, Firefox PC with the same results.
Any suggestion ? Thanks in advance.



I apologize for the delay with the reply.
I’ve tested your project in the firefox and it works well.
The data copied from the excel pasting to the spreadsheet correctly.
Could you please, provide a video or exact steps to reproduce the problem.


Hi Sematik
Thanks a lot for your answer.
Copy & Paste works well.
My problem is when I select many cells and when I want to delete this selected cells with Dell touch, I have this same error in javascript console.
TypeError: this._copydump.outside is null
Thanks in advance
