Data Grid


Data Grid is a tabular data display component. It enables you to add different functionalities.

Use Case

  1. Displaying and Editing Tabular Data.
  2. Collecting and Managing Lists.
  3. Building Dynamic Forms.
  4. Integrating with External Data.


  1. Allow users to directly edit data within cells, eliminating the need for separate edit forms or modals.
  2. Provide tools for users to sort data by different columns and apply filters to narrow down the displayed information.
  3. Pagination
  4. Expandable Rows
  5. Enforce data integrity by implementing validation rules to ensure data accuracy and consistency.



Name Description
onCellClicked The onCellClicked event occurs when the cell in a data grid is clicked
onLinkClicked The onLinkClicked event occurs when the link is clicked


Name Description Parameters
this.getComponent Returns a component whose id has been passed as a parameter (component_ID: String) : Object
this.getValues Gets the current values of all fields () : Object
this.getValue Get A Value From a component (fieldName: String)
this.setData Set the data in the field. The Value object should be of type { componentId: componentValue } (Value: Object)


  1. The show() and hide() methods can also be used to control the visibility of the datagrid in response to user input.
  2. Fields refers to a component ID or a list of component IDs. You can fetch the ID from the Component Attribute panel in the Page Builder.
  3. Before using, make sure the component is hidden. This can be done using this.hide(fields) or by enabling the Hidden checkbox in the Component Attribute panel.
