Getting started

This page describes how to start with the DataGrid widget by adding a simple table to your Svelte application.

Step 1. Install the package

Get the widget package here and follow the installation instructions: Installation.

Step 2. Create and initialize the Grid

Import the Grid component to your project:

<script>    
import { Grid } from "@wx/svelte-grid";
</script>

Initialize the Grid properties.

The example below shows how to create a simple table with six columns and two rows.

The data array holds data to be displayed in the table and the columns array includes the table columns. It's necessary to define the components inside the Grid tag.

<script>
import { Grid } from "@wx/svelte-grid";

const data = [{
id: 1,
city: "Amieshire",
email: "Leora13@yahoo.com",
firstName: "Ernest",
lastName: "Schuppe",
companyName: "Lebsack - Nicolas",
},
{
id: 2,
city: "Gust",
email: "Mose_Gerhold51@yahoo.com",
firstName: "Janis",
lastName: "Vandervort",
companyName: "Glover - Hermiston",
},
];

const columns = [{
id: "id",
width: 50
},
{
id: "city",
width: 100,
header: "City",
footer: "City",
},
{
id: "firstName",
header: "First Name",
footer: "First Name",
width: 150,
},
{
id: "lastName",
header: "Last Name",
footer: "Last Name",
width: 150,
},
{
id: "email",
header: "Email",
footer: "Email"
},
{
id: "companyName",
header: "Company",
footer: "Company"
},
];
</script>

<Grid {data} {columns} />

More instructions about loading data you can see here Loading data.

Step 3. Apply a theme

To add look and feel to the application, import one of the predefined themes, which will also make all elements display correctly:

  • Material
  • Willow
  • WillowDark
<script>
import { getData } from "./common/data";
import { Grid } from "@wx/svelte-grid";

import { Willow } from "@wx/svelte-grid";

</script>

<Grid {data} {columns} />

Apply the desired theme by wrapping Grid into the required theme tag:

<script>
import { getData } from "./common/data";
import { Grid } from "@wx/svelte-grid";

import { Willow } from "@wx/svelte-grid";

</script>

<Willow>
<Grid {data} {columns} />
</Willow>
