TerminusDB React Table

Learn how to include TerminusDB React Table components in your projects to display documents in an interactive table.


The best way to use @terminusdb/terminusdb-react-table is via the npm package that you can install with npm (or yarn if you prefer).

npm install @terminusdb/terminusdb-react-table

The library has two main components TDBReactTable and AdvancedSearch



Properties Description
start:Number The pagination start value, we view the row from start to start+limit
limit:Number Determines the amount of rows on any given page, the default value is 10
totalRows:Number The total number of rows
result:Array The data array to display in the table
config Table configuration. The main options are columns:Array<Column> required - The core columns configuration object for the entire table. rowClick : Function A function that acts as a callback when the table row is clicked
orderBy:Array - An array of sorting objects. The sorting object should contain an id key with the corresponding column ID to sort by. An optional desc key (defaults to false) - this information is stored in state
filterBy:Array - An array of objects, each having a column id and a corresponding filter value. This information is stored in state
downloadConfig:Object - The download config object should contain an filename for the file output, a headersLabel array with the list of columns to add to the files, and a className to style the download button component
setFilters:Function - A function that acts as a callback when the columns input filter is filled and the Enter key if pressed, row filters need to be implemented outside of the table
setOrder:Function - A function that acts as a callback when the columns sort arrow is clicked. Implement your own sorting outside of the table
setLimits:Function(currentlimit:Number,currentstart:Number) - A function that acts as a callback when the pageSize or the pageIndex changes in the table. You should implement your own sorting outside of the table
setHiddenColumns:Function(id:String, checked:Bool) - A function that acts as a callback when the hide/show check box if clicked

Column Options

The following options are supported on any column object you can pass to columns.

Properties Description
accessor:String - Function(originalRow, rowIndex) => any - Required - This string/function is used to build the data model for your column.
id: String - Required - This is the unique ID for the column. It is used as a reference in things like sorting, grouping, filtering etc.
Header: String - Optional, the column title, the id will used if this property is not provided
width:Number - Optional
minWidth: Number - Optional
maxWidth: Number - Optional
disableSortBy : Bool - Disables sorting of a column.
disableFilters:Bool - Disables filtering of the column.
renderer: String or Function - Optional, - The available values for the string value are json - number - string - image. If you pass a function instead, this will receive the table instance and cell model as properties and return a JSX object or a string
filter:Object - This object should have a type property, the available values for type are : list , number, string or boolean. Use an options object to set the operator for the filter to override the defaults
