List issues according to reaction score


The minimum React version material-table supports is ^16.8.5 since material-table v1.36.1. This is due to utilising react-beautiful-dnd for drag & drop functionality which uses hooks.

If you use an older version of react we suggest to upgrade your dependencies or use material-table 1.36.0.


1.Install package

To install material-table with npm:

npm install material-table @material-ui/core --save

To install material-table with yarn:

yarn add material-table @material-ui/core

2.Add material icons

There are two ways to use icons in material-table either import the material icons font via html OR import material icons and use the material-table icons prop.



Import Material icons

Icons can be imported to be used in material-table offering more flexibility for customising the look and feel of material table over using a font library.

To install @material-ui/icons with npm:

npm install @material-ui/icons --save

To install @material-ui/icons with yarn:

yarn add @material-ui/icons

If your environment doesn't support tree-shaking, the recommended way to import the icons is the following:

import AddBox from "@material-ui/icons/AddBox";
import ArrowDownward from "@material-ui/icons/ArrowDownward";

If your environment support tree-shaking you can also import the icons this way:

import { AddBox, ArrowDownward } from "@material-ui/icons";

Note: Importing named exports in this way will result in the code for every icon being included in your project, so is not recommended unless you configure tree-shaking. It may also impact Hot Module Reload performance. Source: @material-ui/icons


import { forwardRef } from 'react';

import AddBox from '@material-ui/icons/AddBox';
import ArrowDownward from '@material-ui/icons/ArrowDownward';
import Check from '@material-ui/icons/Check';
import ChevronLeft from '@material-ui/icons/ChevronLeft';
import ChevronRight from '@material-ui/icons/ChevronRight';
import Clear from '@material-ui/icons/Clear';
import DeleteOutline from '@material-ui/icons/DeleteOutline';
import Edit from '@material-ui/icons/Edit';
import FilterList from '@material-ui/icons/FilterList';
import FirstPage from '@material-ui/icons/FirstPage';
import LastPage from '@material-ui/icons/LastPage';
import Remove from '@material-ui/icons/Remove';
import SaveAlt from '@material-ui/icons/SaveAlt';
import Search from '@material-ui/icons/Search';
import ViewColumn from '@material-ui/icons/ViewColumn';

const tableIcons = {
    Add: forwardRef((props, ref) => <AddBox {...props} ref={ref} />),
    Check: forwardRef((props, ref) => <Check {...props} ref={ref} />),
    Clear: forwardRef((props, ref) => <Clear {...props} ref={ref} />),
    Delete: forwardRef((props, ref) => <DeleteOutline {...props} ref={ref} />),
    DetailPanel: forwardRef((props, ref) => <ChevronRight {...props} ref={ref} />),
    Edit: forwardRef((props, ref) => <Edit {...props} ref={ref} />),
    Export: forwardRef((props, ref) => <SaveAlt {...props} ref={ref} />),
    Filter: forwardRef((props, ref) => <FilterList {...props} ref={ref} />),
    FirstPage: forwardRef((props, ref) => <FirstPage {...props} ref={ref} />),
    LastPage: forwardRef((props, ref) => <LastPage {...props} ref={ref} />),
    NextPage: forwardRef((props, ref) => <ChevronRight {...props} ref={ref} />),
    PreviousPage: forwardRef((props, ref) => <ChevronLeft {...props} ref={ref} />),
    ResetSearch: forwardRef((props, ref) => <Clear {...props} ref={ref} />),
    Search: forwardRef((props, ref) => <Search {...props} ref={ref} />),
    SortArrow: forwardRef((props, ref) => <ArrowDownward {...props} ref={ref} />),
    ThirdStateCheck: forwardRef((props, ref) => <Remove {...props} ref={ref} />),
    ViewColumn: forwardRef((props, ref) => <ViewColumn {...props} ref={ref} />)



Here is a basic example of using material-table within a react application.

import React, { Component } from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import MaterialTable from "material-table";

class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <div style={{ maxWidth: "100%" }}>
            { title: "Adı", field: "name" },
            { title: "Soyadı", field: "surname" },
            { title: "Doğum Yılı", field: "birthYear", type: "numeric" },
              title: "Doğum Yeri",
              field: "birthCity",
              lookup: { 34: "İstanbul", 63: "Şanlıurfa" },
              name: "Mehmet",
              surname: "Baran",
              birthYear: 1987,
              birthCity: 63,
          title="Demo Title"

ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById("react-div"));
