enables/activates the escape mode (activated by default)

boolean escape;


webix.csv.escape = false;


The CSV parser can work in two modes:

  • Simplified;
  • Escape (full escape processing)

The difference between modes is that the escape mode treats escaped data, special chars and the simplified mode doesn't.


  • The simplified mode is much faster than the escape one but can break the parser.
  • If your data might have some escaped or quoted text - use the escape mode.
  • If you sure that data doesn't contain any special chars - use the simplified mode which will improve performance of CSV parsing/serialization.
