Headers with colSpan change columns when scrolling horizontally

This issue has been tracked since 2022-12-03.

Describe the bug

When headers span multiple columns, the headers change columns when scrolling vertically.

To Reproduce

  1. Create a table that has a decent number of columns (enough to have to scroll horizontally)
  2. Create headers that span multiple columns (e.x. colSpan: (args) => (args.type === 'HEADER' ? 4 : undefined),)
  3. Ensure the viewport/window is setup where there is horizontal scrolling required to view all the columns
  4. Scroll and notice that the headers move around and change which columns they span

Expected behavior

Headers should never change columns


  • react-data-grid version: 7.0.0-beta.20
  • react/react-dom version: 17 and 18

Additional context

Here are some screenshots that show the problem when scrolling horizontally:


After scrolling to the right a little bit, the header changes spanned columns


colSpan for normal rows appears to be correctly calculated and stable

The colspan values were incorrect. If a column spans another column then the spanned column should not have colspan. Check the updated example
