Getting Started with Table 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 Table

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 Table module in your application.

    <script type="module" src="node_modules/smart-webcomponents/source/modules/smart.table.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 Table tag to your Web Page

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

  5. Create the Table Component

    	<script type="module">
    		Smart('#table', class {
    			get properties() {
    				return sortMode: "many"
    			}
    		});
    	</script>	   
    		

    Another option is to create the Table is by using the traditional Javascript way:
    	const table = document.createElement('smart-table');
    
    	table.disabled = true;
    	document.body.appendChild(table);
    		

    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 #table is the ID of a DIV tag.

    	import "../../source/modules/smart.table.js";
    
    	document.readyState === 'complete' ? init() : window.onload = init;
    
    	function init() { 
    		const table = new Smart.Table('#table', sortMode: "many");
    	}
    	

  6. Open the page in your web server.

Bordered Table

Add ".table-bordered" for borders on all sides of the table and cells.

Demo

See the Pen Table Bordered Demo by Boyko Markov (@boyko-markov) on CodePen.



Dark

Add ".table-dark" to make the table with Dark Background and White Color.



Demo

See the Pen Table Dark Bordered Demo by Boyko Markov (@boyko-markov) on CodePen.



Table Sorting

Add sort-mode="one" or sort-mode="many" to make the table Sortable by one or many columns. To sort the table through the API, use "sortBy" method and pass two arguments - Column's Name and 'asc', 'desc' or null to sort ascending, descending or remove the column's sort.



Demo

See the Pen Table Sort Demo by Boyko Markov (@boyko-markov) on CodePen.



Striped Rows

Use .table-striped to add zebra-striping.

Responsive

Responsive tables make them easily scrollable. To make the Smart.Table responsive across all viewports, use the ".table-responsive" CSS class. Or, pick a maximum breakpoint with which to have a responsive table up to by using .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl}.

Breakpoint specific

Use .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl} as needed to create the responsive element up to a particular breakpoint. From that breakpoint and up, the web component will behave normally and not scroll horizontally.



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


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

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

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

Set a property:
	table.propertyName = propertyValue;
	

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

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

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

	table.addEventListener(eventName, eventHandler);
	

Remove Event Listener:
	table.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

Read more about using Smart UI with Typescript.

Getting Started with Angular Table 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-table

Navigate to the created project folder

cd smart-angular-table

Setup the Table

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 TableModule in your application root or feature module.

    app.module.ts

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    
    import { TableModule } from 'smart-webcomponents-angular/table';
    
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    
    @NgModule({
        declarations: [ AppComponent ],
        imports: [ BrowserModule, TableModule ],
        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

     
    <div class="demo-description">Our Table web component can be used to wrap or replace standard Tables
        and add different styles, hover effects, sorting by one or multiple columns,
        add, remove and update rows.</div>

Getting Started with React Table Component

Setup React Environment

The easiest way to start with React is to use create-react-app. To scaffold your project structure, follow the installation instructions.

	npm install -g create-react-app
	create-react-app my-app
	cd my-app
	npm start
	

Preparation

Open src/App.js andsrc/App.css

  1. Remove everything inside the App div tag in src/App.js:
    <div className="App"> </div>
  2. Remove the logo.svg import
  3. Remove the contents of src/App.css
  4. Remove src/logo.svg

Setup the Table

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 Table Component and CSS files in your application and render it app.js

    import 'smart-webcomponents-react/source/styles/smart.default.css';
    import React from "react";
    import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
    import { Table } from 'smart-webcomponents-react/table';
    
    class App extends React.Component {
    
    	init() {
    	
    	}
    
    
    	componentDidMount() {
    
    	}

Getting Started with Vue Table 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 Table

  1. Open the "my-project" folder and run:

    npm install smart-webcomponents

  2. Ignored Elements

    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:

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

    App.vue

    <template>  
    	  <smart-table id="table"></smart-table>  
    	 </template>   
    	 <script>  
    	 import "smart-webcomponents/source/styles/smart.default.css";  
    	 import 'smart-webcomponents/source/modules/smart.table.js';  
    	 export default {  
    	  name: "app",  
    	  mounted: function() {  
    	   window.Smart(  
    		"#table", class {  
    		 get properties() {  
    			return  sortMode: "many" 
    		 }  
    		}  
    	   );  
    	  }  
    	 };  
    	 </script>  
    	 <style>  
    	  body {  
    	   min-height: 700px;  
    	  }  
    	 </style>  
    	
    We can now use the smart-table with Vue. Data binding and event handlers will just work right out of the box.
    We have bound the properties of the smart-table to values in our Vue component.

Running the Vue application

Start the app with
npm run serve
and open localhost:8080 in your favorite web browser to see the output below:
