Examples

Customizing output

The default behavior shown above is to display all of the fields in each record. To customize the display of records, a columns property can be provided. The columns property can contain an array of data property names, and only those columns will be displayed in the table.

await io.select.table("Users", {
data: [
{
email: "carsta.rocha@example.com",
phone_number: "(60) 1416-4953",
birthdate: "1993-08-04",
first_name: "Carsta",
last_name: "Rocha",
image: "https://example.com/photos/21351234.jpg",
website_url: "https://example.com",
},
{
email: "irene.morales@example.org",
phone_number: "625-790-958",
birthdate: "1982-04-28",
first_name: "Irene",
last_name: "Morales",
image: "https://example.com/photos/8321527.jpg",
website_url: "https://example.org",
},
],
columns: ["first_name", "last_name", "email"],
});

The columns array can also contain definition objects, with a label property and either an accessorKey string or a renderCell callback that returns an object with optional label, value, url, action string properties, and optional params and image object properties.

await io.select.table("Users", {
data: [
{
email: "carsta.rocha@example.com",
phone_number: "(60) 1416-4953",
birthdate: "1993-08-04",
first_name: "Carsta",
last_name: "Rocha",
image: "https://example.com/photos/21351234.jpg",
website_url: "https://example.com",
},
{
email: "irene.morales@example.org",
phone_number: "625-790-958",
birthdate: "1982-04-28",
first_name: "Irene",
last_name: "Morales",
image: "https://example.com/photos/8321527.jpg",
website_url: "https://example.org",
},
],
columns: [
{
label: "Name",
renderCell: row => `${row.first_name} ${row.last_name}`,
},
{
label: "Phone number",
accessorKey: "phone_number",
},
{
label: "Photo",
renderCell: row => ({
image: {
url: row.image,
alt: `${row.first_name} ${row.last_name} profile photo`,
size: "small",
},
}),
},
{
label: "Birth date",
renderCell: row => {
const [y, m, d] = row.birthdate.split("-").map(s => Number(s));
const birthDate = new Date(y, m - 1, d);
return {
label: birthDate.toLocaleDateString(),
value: birthDate,
};
},
},
{
label: "Website",
renderCell: row => ({
label: row.website_url,
url: row.website_url,
}),
},
],
});

If the renderCell callback returns an action property, a link will be generated to the action with that slug. A params object can also be defined, this object will be passed to the action's ctx.params context value.

tip

The two forms shown above can be combined within a single columns definition.

Adding menus

Beginning with SDK v0.25.0, each row can be given a dropdown menu using the rowMenuItems property, a function that provides the current row as the only argument and returns an array of menu items.

const selected = await io.select.table("Albums", {
data: albums,
columns: ["album", "artist", "year"],
rowMenuItems: row => [
{
label: "Edit metadata",
action: "edit_album",
params: { id: row.id },
},
{
label: "Listen on Spotify",
// external URLs automatically open in a new tab.
url: `https://open.spotify.com/album/${row.spotifyId}`,
},
],
});
