MUI-Datatables - Datatables for Material-UI

Build Status NPM Downloads Coverage Status dependencies Status npm version

MUI-Datatables is a data tables component built on Material-UI. It comes with features like filtering, resizable + view/hide columns, search, export to CSV download, printing, selectable rows, expandable rows, pagination, and sorting. On top of the ability to customize styling on most views, there are three responsive modes "stacked", "scrollMaxHeight", and "scrollFullHeight" for mobile/tablet devices.

Usage

For a simple table:


import MUIDataTable from "mui-datatables";

const columns = ["Name", "Company", "City", "State"];

const data = [
 ["Joe James", "Test Corp", "Yonkers", "NY"],
 ["John Walsh", "Test Corp", "Hartford", "CT"],
 ["Bob Herm", "Test Corp", "Tampa", "FL"],
 ["James Houston", "Test Corp", "Dallas", "TX"],
];

const options = {
  filterType: 'checkbox',
};

<MUIDataTable
  title={"Employee List"}
  data={data}
  columns={columns}
  options={options}
/>

Or customize columns:


import MUIDataTable from "mui-datatables";

const columns = [
 {
  name: "name",
  label: "Name",
  options: {
   filter: true,
   sort: true,
  }
 },
 {
  name: "company",
  label: "Company",
  options: {
   filter: true,
   sort: false,
  }
 },
 {
  name: "city",
  label: "City",
  options: {
   filter: true,
   sort: false,
  }
 },
 {
  name: "state",
  label: "State",
  options: {
   filter: true,
   sort: false,
  }
 },
];

const data = [
 { name: "Joe James", company: "Test Corp", city: "Yonkers", state: "NY" },
 { name: "John Walsh", company: "Test Corp", city: "Hartford", state: "CT" },
 { name: "Bob Herm", company: "Test Corp", city: "Tampa", state: "FL" },
 { name: "James Houston", company: "Test Corp", city: "Dallas", state: "TX" },
];

const options = {
  filterType: 'checkbox',
};

<MUIDataTable
  title={"Employee List"}
  data={data}
  columns={columns}
  options={options}
/>

API

<MUIDataTable />

The component accepts the following props:

Name Type Description
title array Title used to caption table
columns array Columns used to describe table. Must be either an array of simple strings or objects describing a column
data array Data used to describe table. Must be either an array containing objects of key/value pairs with values that are strings or numbers, or arrays of strings or numbers (Ex: data: [{"Name": "Joe", "Job Title": "Plumber", "Age": 30}, {"Name": "Jane", "Job Title": "Electrician", "Age": 45}] or data: [["Joe", "Plumber", 30], ["Jane", "Electrician", 45]]) Use of arbitrary objects as data is not supported, and is deprecated. Consider using ids and mapping to external object data in custom renderers instead e.g. const data = [{"Name": "Joe", "ObjectData": 123}] --> const dataToMapInCustomRender = { 123: { foo: 'bar', baz: 'qux', ... } }

Customize Columns

On each column object, you have the ability to customize columns to your liking with the 'options' property. Example:

const columns = [
 {
  name: "Name",
  options: {
   filter: true,
   sort: false
  }
 },
 ...
];

Column:

Name Type Description
name string Name of column (This field is required)
label string Column Header Name override
options object Options for customizing column

Column Options:

Name Type Default Description
display string 'true' Display column in table. enum('true', 'false', 'excluded')
empty boolean false This denotes whether the column has data or not (for use with intentionally empty columns)
viewColumns boolean true Allow user to toggle column visibility through 'View Column' list
filterList array Filter value list Example
filterOptions {names, logic, display(filterList, onChange(filterList, index, column), index, column)} (These options affect the filter display and functionality from the filter dialog. To modify the filter chips that display after selecting filters, see customFilterListOptions) With filter options, it's possible to use custom names for the filter fields Example, custom filter logic Example, and custom rendering Example. filterList must be of the same type in the main column options, that is an array of arrays, where each array corresponds to the filter list for a given column.
customFilterListRender DEPRECATED (use customFilterListOptions) function Function that returns a string or array of strings used as the chip label(s). function(value) => string OR arrayOfStrings Example
customFilterListOptions {render: function, update: function} (These options only affect the filter chips that display after filters are selected. To modify the filters themselves, see filterOptions) render returns a string or array of strings used as the chip label(s). function(value) => string OR arrayOfStrings, update returns a filterList (see above) allowing for custom filter updates when removing the filter chip Example
filter boolean true Display column in filter list
filterType string 'dropdown' Choice of filtering view. Takes priority over global filterType option.enum('checkbox', 'dropdown', 'multiselect', 'textField', 'custom') Use 'custom' if you are supplying your own rendering via filterOptions.
sort boolean true Enable/disable sorting on column
searchable boolean true Exclude/include column from search results
sortDirection string Set default sort order enum('asc', 'desc', 'none') (null option has been deprecated, use 'none' instead)
print boolean true Display column when printing
download boolean true Display column in CSV download file
hint string Display hint icon with string as tooltip on hover.
customHeadRender function Function that returns a string or React component. Used as display for column header. function(columnMeta, handleToggleColumn) => string|React Component
customBodyRender function Function that returns a string or React component. Used as display data within all table cells of a given column. function(value, tableMeta, updateValue) => string|React Component Example
setCellProps function Is called for each cell and allows to you return custom props for this cell based on its data. function(cellValue: string, rowIndex: number, columnIndex: number) => object Example
setCellHeaderProps function Is called for each header cell and allows you to return custom props for the header cell based on its data. function(columnMeta: object) => object Example

customHeadRender is called with these arguments:

function(columnMeta: {
  customHeadRender: func,
  display: enum('true', 'false', 'excluded'),
  filter: boolean,
  sort: boolean,
  sortDirection: boolean,
  download: boolean,
  empty: boolean,
  index: number,
  label: string,
  name: string,
  print: boolean,
  searchable: boolean,
  viewColumns: boolean
}, handleToggleColumn: function(columnIndex))

customBodyRender is called with these arguments:

function(value: any, tableMeta: {
  rowIndex: number,
  columnIndex: number,
  columnData: array, // Columns Options object
  rowData: array, // Full row data
  tableData: array, Full table data
  tableState: {
    announceText: null|string,
    page: number,
    rowsPerPage: number,
    filterList: array,
    selectedRows: {
      data: array,
      lookup: object,
    },
    showResponsive: boolean,
    searchText: null|string,
  },
}, updateValue: function)

Plug-ins

The table lends itself to plug-ins in many areas, especially in the customRender functions. Many use cases for these render functions are common, so a set of plug-ins are available that you can use.

Available Plug-ins:

Name Type Default Description
debounceSearchRender function Function that returns a function for the customSearchRender method. This plug-in allows you to create a debounced search which can be useful for server-side tables and tables with large data sets. function(debounceWait) => function Example

Customize Styling

Using Material-UI theme overrides will allow you to customize styling to your liking. First, determine which component you would want to target and then lookup the override classname. Let's start with a simple example where we will change the background color of a body cell to be red:

import React from "react";
import MUIDataTable from "mui-datatables";
import { createMuiTheme, MuiThemeProvider } from '@material-ui/core/styles';

class BodyCellExample extends React.Component {

  getMuiTheme = () => createMuiTheme({
    overrides: {
      MUIDataTableBodyCell: {
        root: {
          backgroundColor: "#FF0000"
        }
      }
    }
  })

  render() {

    return (
      <MuiThemeProvider theme={this.getMuiTheme()}>
        <MUIDataTable title={"ACME Employee list"} data={data} columns={columns} options={options} />
      </MuiThemeProvider>
    );

  }
}

Remote Data

If you are looking to work with remote data sets or handle pagination, filtering, and sorting on a remote server you can do that with the following options:

const options = {
  serverSide: true,
  onTableChange: (action, tableState) => {
    this.xhrRequest('my.api.com/tableData', result => {
      this.setState({ data: result });
    });
  }
};

Localization

This package decided that the cost of bringing in another library to perform localizations would be too expensive. Instead the ability to override all text labels (which aren't many) is offered through the options property textLabels. The available strings:

const options = {
  ...
  textLabels: {
    body: {
      noMatch: "Sorry, no matching records found",
      toolTip: "Sort",
      columnHeaderTooltip: column => `Sort for ${column.label}`
    },
    pagination: {
      next: "Next Page",
      previous: "Previous Page",
      rowsPerPage: "Rows per page:",
      displayRows: "of",
    },
    toolbar: {
      search: "Search",
      downloadCsv: "Download CSV",
      print: "Print",
      viewColumns: "View Columns",
      filterTable: "Filter Table",
    },
    filter: {
      all: "All",
      title: "FILTERS",
      reset: "RESET",
    },
    viewColumns: {
      title: "Show Columns",
      titleAria: "Show/Hide Table Columns",
    },
    selectedRows: {
      text: "row(s) selected",
      delete: "Delete",
      deleteAria: "Delete Selected Rows",
    },
  }
  ...
}
