checkbox-column

Rows selection is done by a predefined column, simply add a column with a field name of 'checkbox'.

Checkbox column has supports the following properties:

name type description default value
id* string, number a unique id for the column ---
field* string defines the column as a 'checkbox' column 'checkbox'
pinned boolean whether the column will be pinned to the side, supported only in the first and last columns false

  maxWidth: null,
  resizable: false,
  visible: true,
  // cellRenderer: ({isChecked, callback, disabled, rowIndex}) => ( children )
  // headerCellRenderer: ({isChecked, callback, disabled}) => ( children )
}

rows

Type: array of objects.

This prop containes the data for the rows.

Each row should have a unique identifier field, which by default is id, but it can be changed to a different field using the rowIdField prop.

// row data

{
  "id": "some-unique-id", 
  "objectValueField": {"x": 1, "y": 2}, 
  "username":"wotham0",
  "first_name":"Waldemar",
  "last_name":"Otham",
  "avatar":"https://robohash.org/atquenihillaboriosam.bmp?size=32x32&set=set1",
  "email":"[email protected]",
  "gender":"Male",
  "ip_address":"113.75.186.33",
  "last_visited":"12/08/2019"
}

Note: If a property value is not of type string, you'll have to use the getValue function on the column in order to format the value.

Example:

Let's say the field's value for a cell is an object:

{ ... , fullName: {firstName: 'some-first-name', lastName: 'some-last-name'} },

Its getValue function for displaying the first and last name as a full name, would be:

getValue: (({value, column}) => value.firstName + ' ' + value.lastName

The value that returns from the getValue function will be used for searching, sorting etc...

headerRenderer

Type: function

This function is used for rendering a custom header.

By default the header renders a search and column visibility components, you can render your own custom components and still use the table's callbacks.

If you just want to replace the search or the column visibility management components, you can use the searchRenderer or the columnVisibilityRenderer props.

Arguments:

name type description default value
searchText string text for search ""
setSearchText function a callback function to update search text setSearchText(searchText)
setColumnVisibility function a callback function to update columns visibility that accepts the id of the column that should be toggled setColumnVisibility(columnId)
columns function the columns configuration [ ]

Example:

headerRenderer={({searchText, setSearchText, setColumnVisibility, columns}) => (
    <div style={{display: 'flex', flexDirection: 'column', padding: '10px 20px', background: '#fff', width: '100%'}}>
        <div>
            <label htmlFor="my-search" style={{fontWeight: 500, marginRight: 10}}>
                Search for:
            </label>
            <input 
                name="my-search"
                type="search" 
                value={searchText} 
                onChange={e => setSearchText(e.target.value)} 
                style={{width: 300}}
            />
        </div>
        <div style={{display: 'flex', marginTop: 10}}>
            <span style={{ marginRight: 10, fontWeight: 500 }}>Columns:</span>
            {
                columns.map((cd, idx) => (
                    <div key={idx} style={{flex: 1}}>
                        <input 
                            id={`checkbox-${idx}`}
                            type="checkbox" 
                            onChange={ e => setColumnVisibility(cd.id) } 
                            checked={ cd.visible !== false } 
                        />
                        <label htmlFor={`checkbox-${idx}`} style={{flex: 1, cursor: 'pointer'}}>
                          {cd.label || cd.field}
                        </label>
                    </div>
                ))
            }
        </div>
    </div>
)}

footerRenderer

Type: function

This function is used for rendering a custom footer.

By default the footer renders items information and pagination controls, you can render your own custom components and still use the table's callbacks.

Arguments:

name type description default value
page number the current page 1
totalPages number the total number of pages 0
handlePagination function sets the page to display handlePagination(pageNumber)
pageSizes array of numbers page size options [20, 50, 100]

    totalRows,
    selectedRowsLength,
    numberOfRows
}) => (
    <div style={{display: 'flex', justifyContent: 'space-between', flex: 1, padding: '12px 20px'}}>
        <div style={{display: 'flex'}}>
          {`Total Rows: ${totalRows} 
          | Rows: ${numberOfRows * page - numberOfRows} - ${numberOfRows * page} 
          | ${selectedRowsLength} Selected`}
        </div>
        <div style={{display: 'flex'}}>
            <div style={{width: 200, marginRight: 50}}>
                <span>Items per page: </span>
                <select 
                    value={pageSize} 
                    onChange={e => {setPageSize(e.target.value); handlePagination(1)}}
                >
                    { pageSizes.map((op, idx) => <option key={idx} value={op}>{op}</option>) }
                </select>

            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
)}

How to...

Row-Editing

Row editing can be done by rendering your row edit button using the cellRenderer property in the column configuration, then when clicked, it will set a state proprty with the clicked row id, and that row id would be used in the editRowId prop, then the table will render the editing components for columns that are defined as editable (true by default), and as was defined in the editorCellRenderer which by default will render a text input.

// state
const [rows, setRows] = useState(MOCK_DATA);
const [editRowId, setEditRowId] = useState(null)

// columns
let columns = [
  ...,
  {
    id: 'my-buttons-column'
    field: 'buttons', 
    label: '',
    pinned: true,
    sortable: false,
    resizable: false,
    cellRenderer: ({value, row, column, rowIndex, searchText}) => (
      <button onClick={e => setEditRowId(row.id)}>Edit</button>
    )
    editorCellRenderer: ({value, field, onChange, row, rows, column, rowIndex}) => (
      <div style={{display: 'inline-flex'}}>
        <button onClick={e => setEditRowId(null)}>Cancel</button>
        <button onClick={e => {
          let rowsClone = [...rows];
          let updatedRowIndex = rowsClone.findIndex(r => r.id === row.id);
          rowsClone[updatedRowIndex] = row;

          setRows(rowsClone);
          setEditRowId(null);
        }}>Save</button>
      </div>
    )
  }
];

// update handler
const updateRowData = (row) => {
  let rowsClone = [...rows];
  let rowIndex = rowsClone.findIndex(it => it.id === item.id);
  rowsClone[rowIndex] = row;
  setRows(rowsClone);
}

// render
<GridTable 
    columns={columns}
    rows={rows} 
    editRowId={editRowId}
    ...
/>

For columns which holds values other than string, you'll have to also define the setValue function on the column so the updated value won't override the original value.

Example:

  setValue: ({value, row, setRow, column}) => {
    // value: '35', 
    // row: { ..., { fieldToUpdate: '27' }} 
    let rowClone = { ...row };
    rowClone[column.field].fieldToUpdate = value;
    setRow(rowClone);
  }

Styling

Styling is done by css class selectors. the table's components are mapped with pre-defined classes, and you can add your own custom class per column in the columns configuration.
