  • component.redraw([reselect_again]) can redraw rows again (only for modifications, if you will remove some row you need to update the entire model)
  • component.resetfilter() can reset a filter
  • component.exportrows(page_from or true from the current page, pages_count, callback(rows, internal_options), [reset_to_page or true for the current page]) can export rows with server-side rendering
  • component.appendrow(row_object, [scrolldown], [prepend]) appends and render row
  • component.redrawrow(row_object, [new_object_row]) redraws row or NEW: replaces+redraws row_object with a new new_object_row
  • component.clear() clears all changes
  • component.select(row) selects row must be the same object as in data-source
  • component.editcolumn(row_index, col_index) executes config.change internally (only for advanced usage)
  • component.applyfilter(obj) can apply a custom filter { name: 'Peter', age: '20 - 50' }
  • component.resetcolumns() resets columns
  • component.readfilter() returns a current filter
  • component.rebind(schemaname__or__columnsdeclaration) the method rebinds the schema
  • component.reload() executes config.exec with the current filter and sorting
  • component.empty() empties all rows
  • component.redrawcolumns() redraw columns without reset them
  • NEW: component.schema(name) changes a schema and refreshes data


  • component.meta returns internal meta info about filters, columns and rows

Good to know:

  • NULL('link.to.data') evaluates config.exec
  • SET('link.to.data', data, 'noscroll') --> noscroll type disables reseting of scrolling

How to extend a class of row?

  • look to the {{ if active }} line, it extends a class of row by adding dg-active-class if the active will be valid
    '{{ if active }} dg-active-class{{ fi }}',
    { name: 'name', text: 'Name', width: 200 },
    // other columns ...

Multiple schemas:

<ui-component name="datagrid" path="obj">

    <script type="text/plain" data-id="SCHEMA_A">
            { name: 'name', text: 'Name', width: 200 },
            // ...

    <script type="text/plain" data-id="SCHEMA_B">
            { name: 'price', text: 'Price', width: 100 },
            // ...


    // Usage
    var obj = {};
    obj.schema = 'SCHEMA_A';
    obj.items = [];

    // Changing of schema
    setTimeout(function() {
        obj.schema = 'SCHEMA_B';
        obj.items = [];
    }, 5000);
