How to add images inside rows in jQgrid

This tutorial will go over how to add an image inside a jqGrid cell when the 'url' is delivered from your json data.
Your grid will look something like this:

1. Add the required title to the colModel.
2. At the appropriate position, add the colModel as follows:
{ name: "photo_mobile_url", formatter: playerPicFormatter},
where "photo_mobile_url" is the key of the image in your json data.
For e.g. my json data looks like..
"photo_mobile_url": "",
3. After your jQGrid definition, add the function:
    function playerPicFormatter(cellvalue, options, rowObject) 
      var html = "<img src='"+cellvalue+"'/>";
      return html;
Here, cellValue will hold the value held at the key: photo_mobile_url and so you can edit it if you have to, to correctly display your image.
Make sure the function name is the same as in the formatter.

That's it!
