Is it possible to remove the expand/collapse button from the jqGrid header?

I'm using the jqGrid available at and I can't find a way to disable its expand/collapse button on the top right of the header. Anyone know if there's an option to do that?

I'd like to remove the thing circled in red: alt text



Yes, there is an option for this: hidegrid: false

From the jqGrid documentation wiki for Options:



Enables or disables the show/hide grid button, which appears on the right side of the Caption layer. Takes effect only if the caption property is not an empty string.


Use this code to colllapse all jqgrid on the page

elements = $('div.ui-jqgrid-bdiv');
elements.each(function() { $(this).css("display", "none"); });
elements = $('div.ui-jqgrid-hdiv');
elements.each(function() { $(this).css("display", "none"); });

If you want to disable the main grids toggle button then you can set

hidegrid: false

If you are trying to disable or hide the subgrids expand and collapse button then use this on loadcomplete

jQuery("#GridTeableID").jqGrid('hideCol', "subgrid");
