React Data Grid Overview

    The Ignite UI for React Data Table / Data Grid is a tabular React grid 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 tables are optimized for live, streaming data, with the ability to handle unlimited data set size in number of rows or columns.

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

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

    Required Modules

    The IgrDataGrid requires the following modules:

    Optional Modules

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

    import { IgrGridColumnOptionsModule } from 'igniteui-react-grids';
    import { IgrDataGridToolbarModule } from "igniteui-react-grids";
    import { IgrSparklineModule } from 'igniteui-react-charts';
    
    IgrGridColumnOptionsModule.register();
    IgrDataGridToolbarModule.register();
    IgrSparklineModule.register();
    

    Sample Data Source

    Now that the React data grid module is imported, next is the basic configuration of the React 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 React data grid to the above local data.

    <IgrDataGrid
        height="100%"
        width="100%"
        dataSource={this.data}
        autoGenerateColumns="true"
        defaultColumnMinWidth="100"
        summaryScope="Root"
        isColumnOptionsEnabled="true"
        isGroupCollapsable="true"
        groupSummaryDisplayMode="RowBottom"
        columnMovingMode="Deferred"
        columnMovingAnimationMode="SlideOver"
        columnMovingSeparatorWidth="2"
        columnShowingAnimationMode="slideFromRightAndFadeIn"
        columnHidingAnimationMode="slideToRightAndFadeOut"
        selectionMode="SingleRow"
        cornerRadiusTopLeft="0"
        cornerRadiusTopRight="0"
        />
    

    Manually Define Columns

    <IgrDataGrid
        height="100%"
        width="100%"
        dataSource={this.data}
        autoGenerateColumns="false">
        <IgrNumericColumn field="ProductID" headerText="Product ID"/>
        <IgrTextColumn field="ProductName" headerText="Product Name"/>
        <IgrTextColumn field="QuantityPerUnit" headerText="Quantity Per Unit"/>
        <IgrNumericColumn field="UnitsInStock" headerText="Units In Stock"/>
        <IgrDateTimeColumn field="OrderDate" headerText="Order Date"/>
    </IgrDataGrid>
    

    Styling Columns

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

    <IgrTextColumn
        background="SkyBlue"
        textStyle="Italic Bold 16pt Times New Roman"
    />
