    Blazor Grid Column Pinning Overview

    The Ignite UI for Blazor Data Grid supports the ability to pin columns, allowing the end users to lock a column in a particular column order.

    A column or multiple columns can be pinned to the left-hand or right-hand side of the Data Grid. In addition, you can change the pin state of the columns by utilizing the PinColumn function.

    Blazor Grid Column Pinning Example

    The Column Pinning API in the Data Grid can be enabled by setting either a column's Pinned property, or when setting it by utilizing the PinColumn function of the grid.

    The Pinned property has three options:

    • Left - enabling Left will position pinned columns to the left-hand side of the grid.
    • Right - enabling Right will position pinned columns to the right side of the grid.
    • None - enabling None will unpin a column and reposition its default placement within the grid.

    Unpinned columns that are adjacent to pinned columns will still maintain horizontal scrolling.

    The PinColumn function contains two required parameters. The first parameter is the column to be pinned, and the second is with the PinnedPositions enumeration setting.

    Code Snippet

    The following code demonstrates how to implement column pinning in the Blazor Data Grid with column pinning by using the Pinned property and PinColumn function:

    <IgbDataGrid Height="100%" Width="100%"
        @*Columns Pinned Left*@
        <IgbTextColumn Field="ID" Pinned="PinnedPositions.Left" />
        <IgbTextColumn Field="FirstName" Pinned="PinnedPositions.Left" />
        <IgbTextColumn Field="LastName" Pinned="PinnedPositions.Left" />
        @*Columns Unpinned*@
        <IgbDateTimeColumn Field="Birthday" Pinned="PinnedPositions.None" />
        <IgbNumericColumn Field="Age" Pinned="PinnedPositions.None" />
        <IgbImageColumn Field="CountryFlag" Pinned="PinnedPositions.None" />
        @*Columns Pinned Right*@
        <IgbTextColumn Field="Street" Pinned="PinnedPositions.Right" />
        <IgbTextColumn Field="City" Pinned="PinnedPositions.Right" />
        <IgbTextColumn Field="Country" Pinned="PinnedPositions.Right" />

    Toolbar's Column Pinning UI

    The Column Pinning UI is accessible within the IgbDataGridToolbar component separate from the grid. For this purpose all we have to do is set the toolbar's columnPinning property to true. The toolbar will then display a IgbButton, when clicked, will display the column pinning UI. This button also displays the total of pinned-left columns. If the toolbar is not created, enabling the columnPinning property will have no effect and hide the button.

    The IgbDataGridToolbar provides additional properties such as adding a title to the toolbar by using the ToolbarTitle property, placing text in the IgbButton by setting the columnPinningText property, and adding a title header to the column hiding UI by setting columnPinningTitle.


    Code Snippet

    <IgbDataGridToolbar TargetGrid="DataGridRef"
        ToolbarTitle="Grid Toolbar Title"
        ColumnPinningTitle="Column Pinning" />
    <IgbDataGrid Height="100%" Width="100%"
        DataSource="DataSource" />
    @code {
        private IgbDataGrid grid;
        public IgbDataGrid DataGridRef
                return grid;
                grid = value;
