Web Components Data Grid Overview

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

    Web Components Data Grid Example

    This demo implements some of the features that are available in the Grid: Filtering, Grouping, Pin/Unpin columns, Reposition columns, Sorting, and Summaries

    Getting Started

    Dependencies

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

    npm install --save igniteui-webcomponents-core
    npm install --save igniteui-webcomponents-grids
    npm install --save igniteui-webcomponents-inputs
    

    Required Modules

    The IgcDataGridComponent requires the following modules:

    import { ModuleManager } from 'igniteui-webcomponents-core';
    import { IgcDataGridModule } from 'igniteui-webcomponents-grids';
    import { IgcDataGridComponent } from 'igniteui-webcomponents-grids';
    
    ModuleManager.register(
        IgcDataGridModule
    );
    

    Optional Modules

    The optional IgcDataGridComponent features, seen above, requires the following modules:

    import { IgcGridColumnOptionsModule } from 'igniteui-webcomponents-grids';
    import { IgcGridColumnOptionsComponent } from 'igniteui-webcomponents-grids';
    import { IgcDataGridToolbarModule } from 'igniteui-webcomponents-grids';
    import { IgcDataGridToolbarComponent } from 'igniteui-webcomponents-grids';
    import { IgcSparklineModule } from 'igniteui-webcomponents-charts';
    import { IgcSparklineComponent } from 'igniteui-webcomponents-charts';
    
    ModuleManager.register(
        IgcGridColumnOptionsModule,
        IgcDataGridToolbarModule,
        IgcSparklineModule
    );
    

    Sample Data Source

    Now that the Web Components data grid module is imported, next is the basic configuration of the Web Components grid that binds to local data.

        this.data = [{
            Discontinued: false,
            OrderDate: new Date("2012-02-12"),
            ProductID: 1,
            ProductName: "Chai",
            QuantityPerUnit: "10 boxes x 20 bags",
            ReorderLevel: 10,
            UnitPrice: 18.0000,
            UnitsInStock: 39
        }, {
            Discontinued: false,
            OrderDate: new Date("2003-03-17"),
            ProductID: 2,
            ProductName: "Chang",
            QuantityPerUnit: "24 - 12 oz bottles",
            ReorderLevel: 25,
            UnitPrice: 19.0000,
            UnitsInStock: 17
        }, {
            Discontinued: false,
            OrderDate: new Date("2006-03-17"),
            ProductID: 3,
            ProductName: "Aniseed Syrup",
            QuantityPerUnit: "12 - 550 ml bottles",
            ReorderLevel: 25,
            UnitPrice: 10.0000,
            UnitsInStock: 13
        }, {
            Discontinued: false,
            OrderDate: new Date("2016-03-17"),
            ProductID: 4,
            ProductName: "Chef Antony Cajun Seasoning",
            QuantityPerUnit: "48 - 6 oz jars",
            ReorderLevel: 0,
            UnitPrice: 22.0000,
            UnitsInStock: 53
        }, {
            Discontinued: true,
            OrderDate: new Date("2011-11-11"),
            ProductID: 5,
            ProductName: "Chef Antony Gumbo Mix",
            QuantityPerUnit: "36 boxes",
            ReorderLevel: 0,
            UnitPrice: 21.3500,
            UnitsInStock: 0
        }];
    

    Auto-Generate Columns

    The following code demonstrates how to bind the Web Components data grid to the above local data.

    <igc-data-grid id="grid"
          height="100%"
          width="100%"
          auto-generate-columns="true"
          default-column-min-width="100"
          summary-scope="Root"
          is-column-options-enabled="true"
          is-group-collapsable="true"
          group-summary-display-mode="RowBottom"
          column-moving-mode="Deferred"
          column-moving-animation-mode="SlideOver"
          column-moving-separator-width="2"
          column-showing-animation-mode="slideFromRightAndFadeIn"
          column-hiding-animation-mode="slideToRightAndFadeOut"
          selection-mode="SingleRow"
          corner-radius-top-left="0"
          corner-radius-top-right="0">
    </igc-data-grid>
    
    let grid1 = (document.getElementById("grid") as IgcDataGridComponent);
    grid1.dataSource = data;
    

    Manually Define Columns

    <igc-data-grid id="grid"
        width="100%"
        height="500px"
        auto-generate-columns="false">
            <igc-numeric-column field="ProductID" header-text="Product ID"></igc-numeric-column>
            <igc-text-column field="ProductName" header-text="Product Name"></igc-text-column>
            <igc-text-column field="QuantityPerUnit" header-text="Quantity Per Unit"></igc-text-column>
            <igc-numeric-column field="UnitsInStock" header-text="Units In Stock"></igc-numeric-column>
            <igc-date-time-column field="OrderDate" header-text="Order Date"></igc-date-time-column>
    </igc-data-grid>
    
    let grid1 = (document.getElementById("grid") as IgcDataGridComponent);
    grid1.dataSource = data;
    

    Styling Columns

    The following code demonstrates how to style specific columns using the provided column's properties.

    <igc-text-column 
        background="SkyBlue"
        text-style="Italic Bold 16pt Times New Roman"
    ></igc-text-column>
