React Data Grid Overview and Configuration

The Ignite UI for React Data Table / Data Grid is a tabular React component that allows you to quickly bind and display your data with little coding or configuration. Features of the React data grid include filtering, sorting, templates, row selection, row grouping, row pinning and movable columns. The React data table is optimized for live, streaming data, with the ability to handle unlimited data set size in number of rows or columns.



When installing the React grid package, the core package must also be installed.

  • npm install --save igniteui-react-core
  • npm install --save igniteui-react-grids
