Getting Started with Grid Web Component

Smart UI for Web Components is distributed as smart-webcomponents NPM package. You can also get the full download from our website with all demos from the Download page.

Setup the Grid

Smart UI for Web Components is distributed as smart-webcomponents NPM package

  1. Download and install the package.

    npm install smart-webcomponents

  2. Once installed, import the Grid module in your application.

    <script type="module" src="node_modules/smart-webcomponents/source/modules/smart.grid.js"></script>

  3. Adding CSS reference

    The smart.default.css CSS file should be referenced using following code.

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="node_modules/smart-webcomponents/source/styles/smart.default.css" />

  4. Add the Grid tag to your Web Page

    <smart-grid id="grid"></smart-grid>

  5. Create the Grid Component

    <script type="module">
    	Smart('#grid', class {
    		get properties() {
    			return {
    				dataSource: new Smart.DataAdapter(
    				{
    					dataSource: [
    						{ "EmployeeID": 1, "FirstName": "Nancy", "LastName": "Davolio", "ReportsTo": 2, "Country": "USA", "Title": "Sales Representative", "HireDate": "1992-05-01 00:00:00", "BirthDate": "1948-12-08 00:00:00", "City": "Seattle", "Address": "507 - 20th Ave. E.Apt. 2A" },
    						{ "EmployeeID": 2, "FirstName": "Andrew", "LastName": "Fuller", "ReportsTo": null, "Country": "USA", "Title": "Vice President, Sales", "HireDate": "1992-08-14 00:00:00", "BirthDate": "1952-02-19 00:00:00", "City": "Tacoma", "Address": "908 W. Capital Way" },

    					],
    					dataFields:
    						[
    							'EmployeeID: number',
    							'ReportsTo: number',
    							'FirstName: string',
    							'LastName: string',
    							'Country: string',
    							'City: string',
    							'Address: string',
    							'Title: string',
    							'HireDate: date',
    							'BirthDate: date'
    						]
    				}),
    				sorting: {
    					enabled: true
    				},
    				filtering: {
    					enabled: true
    				},
    				behavior: { columnResizeMode: 'growAndShrink' },
    				columns: [
    					{ label: 'First Name', dataField: 'FirstName', width: 200 },

    				]
    			}
    		}
    	});
    </script>	   
    	
  6. Open the page in your web server.

Another option to create the Grid is by using the traditional Javascript way:
const grid = document.createElement("smart-grid");

grid.id = "myGrid";
grid.editing.enabled = true;
grid.dataSource = new Smart.DataAdapter(
{
	dataSource: [
		{ "EmployeeID": 1, "FirstName": "Nancy", "LastName": "Davolio", "ReportsTo": 2, "Country": "USA", "Title": "Sales Representative", "HireDate": "1992-05-01 00:00:00", "BirthDate": "1948-12-08 00:00:00", "City": "Seattle", "Address": "507 - 20th Ave. E.Apt. 2A" },
		{ "EmployeeID": 2, "FirstName": "Andrew", "LastName": "Fuller", "ReportsTo": null, "Country": "USA", "Title": "Vice President, Sales", "HireDate": "1992-08-14 00:00:00", "BirthDate": "1952-02-19 00:00:00", "City": "Tacoma", "Address": "908 W. Capital Way" },
		{ "EmployeeID": 3, "FirstName": "Janet", "LastName": "Leverling", "ReportsTo": 2, "Country": "USA", "Title": "Sales Representative", "HireDate": "1992-04-01 00:00:00", "BirthDate": "1963-08-30 00:00:00", "City": "Kirkland", "Address": "722 Moss Bay Blvd." },
		{ "EmployeeID": 4, "FirstName": "Margaret", "LastName": "Peacock", "ReportsTo": 2, "Country": "USA", "Title": "Sales Representative", "HireDate": "1993-05-03 00:00:00", "BirthDate": "1937-09-19 00:00:00", "City": "Redmond", "Address": "4110 Old Redmond Rd." },
		{ "EmployeeID": 5, "FirstName": "Steven", "LastName": "Buchanan", "ReportsTo": 2, "Country": "UK", "Title": "Sales Manager", "HireDate": "1993-10-17 00:00:00", "BirthDate": "1955-03-04 00:00:00", "City": "London", "Address": "14 Garrett Hill" },
		{ "EmployeeID": 6, "FirstName": "Michael", "LastName": "Suyama", "ReportsTo": 5, "Country": "UK", "Title": "Sales Representative", "HireDate": "1993-10-17 00:00:00", "BirthDate": "1963-07-02 00:00:00", "City": "London", "Address": "Coventry House Miner Rd." },

		{ "EmployeeID": 9, "FirstName": "Anne", "LastName": "Dodsworth", "ReportsTo": 5, "Country": "UK", "Title": "Sales Representative", "HireDate": "1994-11-15 00:00:00", "BirthDate": "1966-01-27 00:00:00", "City": "London", "Address": "7 Houndstooth Rd." }
	],
	dataFields:
		[
			'EmployeeID: number',
			'ReportsTo: number',
			'FirstName: string',
			'LastName: string',
			'Country: string',
			'City: string',
			'Address: string',
			'Title: string',
			'HireDate: date',
			'BirthDate: date'
		]
});
grid.columns = [
	{ label: 'First Name', dataField: 'FirstName', width: 200 },
	{ label: 'Last Name', dataField: 'LastName', width: 200 },
	{ label: 'Title', dataField: 'Title', width: 160 },
	{ label: 'Birth Date', dataField: 'BirthDate', cellsFormat: 'd', width: 120 },
	{ label: 'Hire Date', dataField: 'HireDate', cellsFormat: 'd', width: 120 },
	{ label: 'Address', dataField: 'Address', width: 250 },
	{ label: 'City', dataField: 'City', width: 120 },
	{ label: 'Country', dataField: 'Country' }
];

document.body.appendChild(grid);
	

Smart framework provides a way to dynamically create a web component on demand from a DIV tag which is used as a host. The following imports the web component's module and creates it on demand, when the document is ready. The #grid is the ID of a DIV tag.

import "../../source/modules/smart.grid.js";

document.readyState === 'complete' ? init() : window.onload = init;

function init() { 
    const grid = new Smart.Grid('#grid', {
        dataSource: new Smart.DataAdapter(
        {
            dataSource: generateData(1000),
            dataFields:
            [
                'id: number',
                'firstName: string',
                'lastName: string',
                'productName: string',
                'available: bool',
                'quantity: number',
                'price: number',
                'total: number'
            ]
        }),
        editing: {
            enabled: true,
            mode: 'cell'
        },
        columns: [
        {
            label: 'First Name', dataField: 'firstName'
        },
        { label: 'Last Name', dataField: 'lastName' },
        { label: 'Product', dataField: 'productName' },
        { label: 'Available', dataField: 'available', template: 'checkBox', editor: 'checkBox' },
        { label: 'Quantity', dataField: 'quantity', editor: 'numberInput' },
        { label: 'Unit Price', dataField: 'price', editor: 'numberInput', cellsFormat: 'c2' }
        ]
    });
}

Create, Append, Remove, Get/Set Property, Invoke Method, Bind to Event


Create a new element:
const grid = document.createElement('smart-grid');

Append it to the DOM:
document.body.appendChild(grid);

Remove it from the DOM:
grid.parentNode.removeChild(grid);

Set a property:
grid.propertyName = propertyValue;

Get a property value:
const propertyValue = grid.propertyName;

Invoke a method:
grid.methodName(argument1, argument2);

Add Event Listener:
const eventHandler = (event) => {
   // your code here.
};

grid.addEventListener(eventName, eventHandler);

Remove Event Listener:
grid.removeEventListener(eventName, eventHandler, true);

Using with Typescript

Smart Web Components package includes TypeScript definitions which enables strongly-typed access to the Smart UI Components and their configuration.

Inside the download package, the typescript directory contains .d.ts file for each web component and a smart.elements.d.ts typescript definitions file for all web components. Copy the typescript definitions file to your project and in your TypeScript file add a reference to smart.elements.d.ts

Getting Started with Angular Grid Component

Setup Angular Environment

Angular provides the easiest way to set angular CLI projects using Angular CLI tool.

Install the CLI application globally to your machine.

npm install -g @angular/cli

Create a new Application

ng new smart-angular-grid

Navigate to the created project folder

cd smart-angular-grid

Setup the Grid

Smart UI for Angular is distributed as smart-webcomponents-angular NPM package

  1. Download and install the package.
    npm install smart-webcomponents-angular
  2. Once installed, import the GridModule in your application root or feature module.

    app.module.ts

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { GridModule } from 'smart-webcomponents-angular/grid';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    
    @NgModule({
        declarations: [ AppComponent ],
        imports: [ BrowserModule, GridModule ],
        bootstrap: [ AppComponent ],
    	entryComponents: [ AppComponent ]
    })
    
    export class AppModule { }
    
    

  3. Adding CSS reference

    The following CSS file is available in ../node_modules/smart-webcomponents-angular/ package folder. This can be referenced in [src/styles.css] using following code.

    @import 'smart-webcomponents-angular/source/styles/smart.default.css';

    Another way to achieve the same is to edit the angular.json file and in the styles add the style.

    "styles": [
    	"node_modules/smart-webcomponents-angular/source/styles/smart.default.css"
    ]
    
  4. Example



    app.component.html

     
    	

    app.component.ts

     
    	

    data.ts

    interface IRowGenerateData {
    	id: number;

    		];
    
    	for (let i = 0; i < rowscount; i++) {
    		const row = {} as IRowGenerateData;
    
    		const productindex = Math.floor(Math.random() * productNames.length);
    		const price = parseFloat(priceValues[productindex]);
    		const quantity = 1 + Math.round(Math.random() * 10);
    
    		row.id = startIndex + i;
    		row.reportsTo = Math.floor(Math.random() * firstNames.length);
    
    		if (i % Math.floor(Math.random() * firstNames.length) === 0) {
    			row.reportsTo = null;
    		}
    
    		row.available = productindex % 2 === 0;
    
    		if (hasNullValues === true) {
    			if (productindex % 2 !== 0) {
    				const random = Math.floor(Math.random() * rowscount);
    				row.available = i % random === 0 ? null : false;
    			}
    		}
    
    		row.firstName = firstNames[Math.floor(Math.random() * firstNames.length)];
    		row.lastName = lastNames[Math.floor(Math.random() * lastNames.length)];
    		row.name = row.firstName + ' ' + row.lastName;
    		row.productName = productNames[productindex];
    		row.price = price;
    		row.quantity = quantity;
    		row.total = price * quantity;
    
    		const date = new Date();
    		date.setFullYear(2016, Math.floor(Math.random() * 11), Math.floor(Math.random() * 27));
    		date.setHours(0, 0, 0, 0);
    		row.date = date;
    
    		data[i] = row;
    	}
    
    	return data;
    }
    	
    	

    app.module.ts

Setup the Grid

Smart UI for React is distributed as smart-webcomponents-react NPM package

  1. Download and install the package.
    npm install smart-webcomponents-react
  2. Once installed, import the React Grid Component and CSS files in your application and render it app.js

    import React from "react";
    import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
    import 'smart-webcomponents-react/source/styles/smart.default.css';
    import { Smart, Grid } from 'smart-webcomponents-react/grid';
    
    class App extends React.Component {
    	behavior = {
    		columnResizeMode: 'growAndShrink'
    	}
    
    	appearance = {
    		alternationCount: 2,
    		showRowHeader: true,
    		showRowHeaderSelectIcon: true,
    		showRowHeaderFocusIcon: true
    	}
    
    	paging = {
    		enabled: true
    	}
    
    	pager = {
    		visible: true
    	}
    
    	sorting = {
    		enabled: true
    	}
    
    	editing = {
    		enabled: true
    	}
    
    	dataSource = new Smart.DataAdapter({
    	dataSource: [  
    		  { "firstName": "Beate", "lastName": "Wilson", "productName": "Caramel Latte"},   
    		  { "firstName": "Ian", "lastName": "Nodier", "productName": "Caramel Latte"},   
    		  { "firstName": "Petra", "lastName": "Vileid", "productName": "Green Tea"},

    		  { "firstName": "Regina", "lastName": "Fuller", "productName": "Caffe Americano" },  
    		  { "firstName": "Regina", "lastName": "Burke", "productName": "Caramel Latte"},   
    		  { "firstName": "Andrew", "lastName": "Petersen", "productName": "Caffe Americano"},  
    		  { "firstName": "Martin", "lastName": "Ohno", "productName": "Espresso con Panna"},   
    		  { "firstName": "Beate", "lastName": "Devling", "productName": "Green Tea"},

    		  { "firstName": "Marco", "lastName": "Johnes", "productName": "Caffe Mocha"}  
    	 ],  
    		dataFields: [
    			'firstName: string',
    			'lastName: string',
    			'productName: string'
    		]
    	})
    
    	columns = [{
    		label: 'First Name',
    		dataField: 'firstName'
    	},
    	{
    		label: 'Last Name',
    		dataField: 'lastName'
    	},
    	{
    		label: 'Product',
    		dataField: 'productName'
    	}
    	]
    
    	componentDidMount() {
    
    	}
    
    	render() {
    		return (
    			<div>
    				<Grid
    					dataSource={this.dataSource}
    					columns={this.columns}
    					appearance={this.appearance}
    					behavior={this.behavior}

    					>
    				</Grid>
    			</div>
    		);
    	}
    }
    
    ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.querySelector("#root"));
    
    export default App;

Getting Started with Vue Grid Component


Setup Vue Environment

We will use vue-cli to get started. Let's install vue-cli

npm install -g @vue/cli

Then we can start creating our Vue.js projects with:

vue create my-project

Setup the Grid

Open the "my-project" folder and run:

npm install smart-webcomponents

Setup with Vue 3.x

  • Make Vue ignore custom elements defined outside of Vue (e.g., using the Web Components APIs). Otherwise, it will throw a warning about an Unknown custom element, assuming that you forgot to register a global component or misspelled a component name.

    Open src/main.js in your favorite text editor and change its contents to the following:

    main.js

    import { createApp } from 'vue'
    import App from './App.vue'
    
    const app = createApp(App)
    
    app.config.isCustomElement = tag => tag.startsWith('smart-');
    app.mount('#app')
    		
  • Open src/App.vue in your favorite text editor and change its contents to the following:

    App.vue

    <template>
      <div class="vue-root">
        <div class="demo-description">
          The Grid in this demo displays data in a series of rows and columns. This
          is the simplest case when the Grid is bound to a local data source.
        </div>
        <smart-grid id="grid"></smart-grid>
      </div>
    </template>
    
    <script>
    import { onMounted } from "vue";
    import "smart-webcomponents/source/styles/smart.default.css";
    import "smart-webcomponents/source/modules/smart.grid.js";
    
    export default {
      name: "app",
      setup() {
        onMounted(() => {
          window.Smart(
            "#grid",
            class {
              get properties() {
                return {
    				columns: [  
                         {  label: 'First Name', dataField: 'firstName' },  
                         { label: 'Last Name', dataField: 'lastName' },  
                         { label: 'Product', dataField: 'productName' }  
                    ],  
                    dataSource: new window.Smart.DataAdapter(  
                    {  
                         dataSource: [  
                              { "firstName": "Beate", "lastName": "Wilson", "productName": "Caramel Latte"},   
                              { "firstName": "Ian", "lastName": "Nodier", "productName": "Caramel Latte"},   
                              { "firstName": "Petra", "lastName": "Vileid", "productName": "Green Tea"},   
                              { "firstName": "Mayumi", "lastName": "Ohno", "productName": "Caramel Latte"},   
                              { "firstName": "Mayumi", "lastName": "Saylor", "productName": "Espresso con Panna"},   
                              { "firstName": "Regina", "lastName": "Fuller", "productName": "Caffe Americano" },  
                              { "firstName": "Regina", "lastName": "Burke", "productName": "Caramel Latte"},   
                              { "firstName": "Andrew", "lastName": "Petersen", "productName": "Caffe Americano"},  
                              { "firstName": "Martin", "lastName": "Ohno", "productName": "Espresso con Panna"},   
                              { "firstName": "Beate", "lastName": "Devling", "productName": "Green Tea"},   
                              { "firstName": "Sven", "lastName": "Devling", "productName": "Espresso Truffle"},  
                              { "firstName": "Petra", "lastName": "Burke", "productName": "Peppermint Mocha Twist"},  
                              { "firstName": "Marco", "lastName": "Johnes", "productName": "Caffe Mocha"}  
                         ],  
                         dataFields:  
                         [  
                              'firstName: string',  
                              'lastName: string',  
                              'productName: string'                           
                         ]  
                    }) 
                };
              }
            }
          );
        });
      }
    };
    </script>
    
    <style>
    body {
      min-height: 700px;
    }
    
    smart-grid {
      width: 100%;
      height: auto;
    }
    </style>
    		
    We can now use the smart-grid with Vue 3. Data binding and event handlers will just work right out of the box.

Setup with Vue 2.x

  • Make Vue ignore custom elements defined outside of Vue (e.g., using the Web Components APIs). Otherwise, it will throw a warning about an Unknown custom element, assuming that you forgot to register a global component or misspelled a component name.

    Open src/main.js in your favorite text editor and change its contents to the following:

    main.js

    import Vue from 'vue'
    import App from './App.vue'
    
    Vue.config.productionTip = false
    Vue.config.ignoredElements = [
    'smart-grid'
    ]
    
    new Vue({
      render: h => h(App),
    }).$mount('#app')
  • Open src/App.vue in your favorite text editor and change its contents to the following:

    App.vue

    <template>
      <smart-grid id="grid"></smart-grid>
    </template>

    import 'smart-webcomponents/source/modules/smart.grid.js';
    import { generateData } from "./data.js";
    
    export default {
      name: "app",
      mounted: function() {
        Smart(
          "#grid",
          class {
            get properties() {
              return {
    			    columns: [  
                         {  label: 'First Name', dataField: 'firstName' },  
                         { label: 'Last Name', dataField: 'lastName' },  
                         { label: 'Product', dataField: 'productName' }  
                    ],  
                    dataSource: new window.Smart.DataAdapter(  
                    {  
                         dataSource: [  
                              { "firstName": "Beate", "lastName": "Wilson", "productName": "Caramel Latte"},

                              { "firstName": "Petra", "lastName": "Vileid", "productName": "Green Tea"},   
                              { "firstName": "Mayumi", "lastName": "Ohno", "productName": "Caramel Latte"},   
                              { "firstName": "Mayumi", "lastName": "Saylor", "productName": "Espresso con Panna"},   
                              { "firstName": "Regina", "lastName": "Fuller", "productName": "Caffe Americano" },

                              { "firstName": "Sven", "lastName": "Devling", "productName": "Espresso Truffle"},  
                              { "firstName": "Petra", "lastName": "Burke", "productName": "Peppermint Mocha Twist"},  
                              { "firstName": "Marco", "lastName": "Johnes", "productName": "Caffe Mocha"}  
                         ],  
                         dataFields:  
                         [  
                              'firstName: string',  
                              'lastName: string',  
                              'productName: string'                           
                         ]  
                    }) 
            }
          }
        );
      }
    };
    </script>
    
    <style>
      body {
        min-height: 700px;
      }
    
      smart-grid {
        width: 100%;
        height: auto;
      }
    </style>
    		
    We can now use the smart-grid with Vue. Data binding and event handlers will just work right out of the box.
    We have bound the properties of the smart-grid to values in our Vue component.
