Web Components Table / Grid

The Ignite UI for Web Components Data Table / Data Grid is a tabular Web Components 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 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 Web Components grid package, the core package must also be installed.

  • npm install --save igniteui-webcomponents-core

Code Snippet

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

Auto-generated columns:

<igc-live-grid id="grid"
let grid1 = (document.getElementById("grid") as IgcLiveGridComponent);
grid1.dataSource = data;

Manual definition of columns:

<igc-live-grid id="grid"
        <igc-numeric-column property-path="ProductID" header-text="Product ID"></igc-numeric-column>
        <igc-text-column property-path="ProductName" header-text="Product Name"></igc-text-column>
        <igc-text-column property-path="QuantityPerUnit" header-text="Quantity Per Unit"></igc-text-column>
