                .then((wbjson) => {                        
                    xs = x_spreadsheet('#gridjs',
                            showToolbar: false,
                            mode: 'read',
                            local: 'en',
                            showContextmenu: true,
                            contextMenuItems: {
                                usedefault: false,
