DataTable Class

Extends DataTable.Base
Module: datatable-base
Parent Module: datatable

Available since 3.5.0

A Widget for displaying tabular data. Before feature modules are use()d, this class is functionally equivalent to DataTable.Base. However, feature modules can modify this class in non-destructive ways, expanding the API and functionality.

This is the primary DataTable class. Out of the box, it provides the ability to dynamically generate an HTML table from a set of column configurations and row data. But feature module inclusion can add table sorting, pagintaion, highlighting, selection, and more.


// The functionality of this table would require additional modules be use()d,
// but the feature APIs are aggregated onto Y.DataTable.
// (Snippet is for illustration. Not all features are available today.)
var table = new Y.DataTable({
    columns: [
        { type: 'checkbox', defaultChecked: true },
        { key: 'firstName', sortable: true, resizable: true },
        { key: 'lastName', sortable: true },
        { key: 'role', formatter: toRoleName }
    ],
    data: {
        source: 'http://myserver.com/service/json',
        type: 'json',
        schema: {
            resultListLocator: 'results.users',
            fields: [
                'username',
                'firstName',
                'lastName',
                { key: 'role', type: 'number' }
            ]
        }
    },
    recordType: UserModel,
    pagedData: {
        location: 'footer',
        pageSizes: [20, 50, 'all'],
        rowsPerPage: 20,
        pageLinks: 5
    },
    editable: true
});

Column Configuration

The column configurations are set in the form of an array of objects, where each object corresponds to a column. For columns populated directly from the row data, a 'key' property is required to bind the column to that property or attribute in the row data.

Not all columns need to relate to row data, nor do all properties or attributes of the row data need to have a corresponding column. However, only those columns included in the columns configuration attribute will be rendered.

Other column configuration properties are supported by the configured view, class as well as any features added by plugins or class extensions. See the description of DataTable.TableView and its subviews DataTable.HeaderView, DataTable.BodyView, and DataTable.FooterView (and other DataTable feature classes) to see what column properties they support.

Some examples of column configurations would be:


// Basic
var columns = [{ key: 'firstName' }, { key: 'lastName' }, { key: 'age' }];

// For columns without any additional configuration, strings can be used
var columns = ['firstName', 'lastName', 'age'];

// Multi-row column headers (see DataTable.HeaderView for details)
var columns = [
    {
        label: 'Name',
        children: [
            { key: 'firstName' },
            { key: 'lastName' }
        ]
    },
    'age' // mixing and matching objects and strings is ok
];

// Including columns that are not related 1:1 to row data fields/attributes
// (See DataTable.BodyView for details)
var columns = [
    {
        label: 'Name', // Needed for the column header
        formatter: function (o) {
            // Fill the column cells with data from firstName and lastName
            if (o.data.age > 55) {
                o.className += ' senior';
            }
            return o.data.lastName + ', ' + o.data.firstName;
        }
    },
    'age'
];

// Columns that include feature configurations (for illustration; not all
// features are available today).
var columns = [
    { type: 'checkbox', defaultChecked: true },
    { key: 'firstName', sortable: true, resizable: true, min-width: '300px' },
    { key: 'lastName', sortable: true, resizable: true, min-width: '300px' },
    { key: 'age', emptyCellValue: 'unknown' }
];

Row Data Configuration

The data configuration attribute is responsible for housing the data objects that will be rendered as rows. You can provide this information in two ways by default:

  1. An array of simple objects with key:value pairs
  2. A ModelList of Base-based class instances (presumably Model subclass instances)

If an array of objects is passed, it will be translated into a ModelList filled with instances of the class provided to the recordType attribute. This attribute can also create a custom Model subclass from an array of field names or an object of attribute configurations. If no recordType is provided, one will be created for you from available information (see _initRecordType). Providing either your own ModelList instance for data, or at least Model class for recordType, is the best way to control client-server synchronization when modifying data on the client side.

The ModelList instance that manages the table's data is available in the data property on the DataTable instance.

Rendering

Table rendering is a collaborative process between the DataTable and its configured view. The DataTable creates an instance of the configured view (DataTable.TableView by default), and calls its render() method. DataTable.TableView, for instance, then creates the <table> and <caption>, then delegates the rendering of the specific sections of the table to subviews, which can be configured as headerView, bodyView, and footerView. DataTable.TableView defaults the headerView to DataTable.HeaderView and the bodyView to DataTable.BodyView, but leaves the footerView unassigned. Setting any subview to null will result in that table section not being rendered.

Methods

Methods

@renderUI

() protected

Inherited from DataTable.Base: datatable/js/base.js:425

Available since 3.6.0

Instantiates the configured view class that will be responsible for setting up the View class.

_addAttrs

(
  • cfgs
  • values
  • lazy
)
private

Implementation behind the public addAttrs method.

This method is invoked directly by get if it encounters a scenario in which an attribute's valueFn attempts to obtain the value an attribute in the same group of attributes, which has not yet been added (on demand initialization).

Parameters:

  • cfgs Object

    An object with attribute name/configuration pairs.

  • values Object

    An object with attribute name/value pairs, defining the initial values to apply. Values defined in the cfgs argument will be over-written by values in this argument unless defined as read only.

  • lazy Boolean

    Whether or not to delay the intialization of these attributes until the first call to get/set. Individual attributes can over-ride this behavior by defining a lazyAdd configuration property in their configuration. See addAttr.

_addLazyAttr

(
  • name
  • [lazyCfg]
)
private

Finishes initializing an attribute which has been lazily added.

Parameters:

  • name Object

    The name of the attribute

  • [lazyCfg] Object optional

    Optional config hash for the attribute. This is added for performance along the critical path, where the calling method has already obtained lazy config from state.

_addOutOfOrder

(
  • name
  • cfg
)
private

Utility method used by get/set to add attributes encountered out of order when calling addAttrs().

For example, if:

this.addAttrs({
     foo: {
         setter: function() {
            // make sure this bar is available when foo is added
            this.get("bar");
         }

    The full set of table columns

_filterAdHocAttrs

(
  • allAttrs
  • userVals
)
Object private

Parameters:

  • allAttrs Object

    The set of all attribute configurations for this instance. Attributes will be removed from this set, if they belong to the filtered class, so that by the time all classes are processed, allCfgs will be empty.

For example, without the additional filter, if you have nested widgets, each widget will have a delegate listener. If you click on the inner widget, the inner delegate listener's filter will match once, but the outer will match twice (based on delegate's design) - once for the inner widget, and once for the outer.

Parameters:

Returns:

Boolean: true if it's OK to fire the custom UI event, false if not.

_getColumns

(
  • columns
  • name
)
protected

Provided by the datatable-core module.

Defined in datatable/js/core.js:431

Available since 3.5.0

The getter for the columns attribute. Returns the array of column configuration objects if instance.get('columns') is called, or the specific column object if instance.get('columns.columnKey') is called.

Parameters:

    The current value stored in the columnset state

  • name String

    The attribute name requested (e.g. 'columnset' or 'columnset.foo');

_getFullType

)
String private

Returns the fully qualified type, given a short type string. That is, returns "foo:bar" when given "bar" if "foo" is the configured prefix.

NOTE: This method, unlike _getType, does no checking of the value passed in, and is designed to be used with the low level _publish() method, for critical path implementations which need to fast-track publish for performance reasons.

Parameters:

  • type String

    The short type to prefix

Returns:

String: The prefixed type, if a prefix is set, otherwise the type passed in

_validTabIndex

(
  • tabIndex
)
protected

Parameters:

addAttr

(
  • name
  • config
  • lazy
)
Object chainable

Adds an attribute with the provided configuration to the host object.

The config argument object supports the following properties:

value <Any>
The initial value to set on the attribute
valueFn <Function | String>

A function, which will return the initial value to set on the attribute. This is useful for cases where the attribute configuration is defined statically, but needs to reference the host instance ("this") to obtain an initial value. If both the value and valueFn properties are defined, the value returned by the valueFn has precedence over the value property, unless it returns undefined, in which case the value property is used.

valueFn can also be set to a string, representing the name of the instance method to be used to retrieve the value.

readOnly <boolean>
Whether or not the attribute is read only. Attributes having readOnly set to true cannot be modified by invoking the set method.
writeOnce <boolean> or <string>
Whether or not the attribute is "write once". Attributes having writeOnce set to true, can only have their values set once, be it through the default configuration, constructor configuration arguments, or by invoking set.

The writeOnce attribute can also be set to the string "initOnly", in which case the attribute can only be set during initialization (when used with Base, this means it can only be set during construction)

setter <Function | String>

The setter function used to massage or normalize the value passed to the set method for the attribute. The value returned by the setter will be the final stored value. Returning Attribute.INVALID_VALUE, from the setter will prevent the value from being stored.

setter can also be set to a string, representing the name of the instance method to be used as the setter function.

getter <Function | String>

The getter function used to massage or normalize the value returned by the get method for the attribute. The value returned by the getter function is the value which will be returned to the user when they invoke get.

getter can also be set to a string, representing the name of the instance method to be used as the getter function.

validator <Function | String>

The validator function invoked prior to setting the stored value. Returning false from the validator function will prevent the value from being stored.

validator can also be set to a string, representing the name of the instance method to be used as the validator function.

lazyAdd <boolean>
Whether or not to delay initialization of the attribute until the first call to get/set it. This flag can be used to over-ride lazy initialization on a per attribute basis, when adding multiple attributes through the addAttrs method.

The setter, getter and validator are invoked with the value and name passed in as the first and second arguments, and with the context ("this") set to the host object.

Configuration properties outside of the list mentioned above are considered private properties used internally by attribute, and are not intended for public use.

Parameters:

  • name String

    The name of the attribute.

  • config Object

    An object with attribute configuration property/value pairs, specifying the configuration for the attribute.

    NOTE: The configuration object is modified when adding an attribute, so if you need to protect the original values, you will need to merge the object.

  • lazy Boolean

    (optional) Whether or not to add this attribute lazily (on the first call to get/set).

Returns:

Object: A reference to the host object.

addAttrs

(
  • cfgs
  • values
  • lazy
)
Object chainable

Configures a group of attributes, and sets initial values.

NOTE: This method does not isolate the configuration object by merging/cloning. The caller is responsible for merging/cloning the configuration object if required.

Parameters:

  • cfgs Object

    An object with attribute name/configuration pairs.

  • values Object

    An object with attribute name/value pairs, defining the initial values to apply. Values defined in the cfgs argument will be over-written by values in this argument unless defined as read only.

  • lazy Boolean

    Whether or not to delay the intialization of these attributes until the first call to get/set. Individual attributes can over-ride this behavior by defining a lazyAdd configuration property in their configuration. See addAttr.

Returns:

Object: A reference to the host object.

addColumn

(
  • config
  • [index]
)
DataTable chainable

Provided by the datatable-mutable module.

Defined in datatable/js/mutable.js:60

Available since 3.5.0

Adds the column configuration to the DataTable's columns configuration. If the index parameter is supplied, it is injected at that index. If the table has nested headers, inject a subcolumn by passing an array of indexes to identify the new column's final location.

The index parameter is required if adding a nested column.

This method is a convienience method for fetching the DataTable's columns attribute, updating it, and calling table.set('columns', _updatedColumnsDefs_)

For example:

// Becomes last column
table.addColumn('name');

// Inserted after the current second column, moving the current third column
// to index 4
table.addColumn({ key: 'price', formatter: currencyFormatter }, 2 );

// Insert a new column in a set of headers three rows deep.  The index array
// translates to
// [ 2, --  in the third column's children
//   1, --  in the second child's children
//   3 ] -- as the fourth child column
table.addColumn({ key: 'age', sortable: true }, [ 2, 1, 3 ]);

Parameters:

Returns:

DataTable chainable

Provided by the datatable-mutable module.

Defined in datatable/js/mutable.js:198

Available since 3.5.0

Adds a new record to the DataTable's data ModelList. Record data can be an object of field values or an instance of the DataTable's configured recordType class.

This relays all parameters to the data ModelList's add method.

If a configuration object is passed as a second argument, and that object has sync: true set, the underlying Model will be save()d.

If the DataTable's autoSync attribute is set to true, the additional argument is not needed.

If syncing and the last argument is a function, that function will be used as a callback to the Model's save() method.

Parameters:

  • data Object

    The data or Model instance for the new record

  • [config] Object optional

    Configuration to pass along

  • [callback] Function optional

    Callback function for Model's save()

    • err Error | Null

      If an error occurred or validation failed, this parameter will contain the error. If the sync operation succeeded, err will be null.

    • response Any

      The server's response. This value will be passed to the parse() method, which is expected to parse it and return an attribute hash.

Returns:

addRows

Available since 3.5.0

Adds an array of new records to the DataTable's data ModelList. Record data can be an array of objects containing field values or an array of instance of the DataTable's configured recordType class.

This relays all parameters to the data ModelList's add method.

Technically, this is an alias to addRow, but please use the appropriately named method for readability.

If a configuration object is passed as a second argument, and that object has sync: true set, the underlying Models will be save()d.

If the DataTable's autoSync attribute is set to true, the additional argument is not needed.

If syncing and the last argument is a function, that function will be used as a callback to each Model's save() method.

Parameters:

  • data Object[]

    The data or Model instances to add

  • [config] Object optional

    Configuration to pass along

  • [callback] Function optional

    Callback function for each Model's save()

    • err Error | Null

      If an error occurred or validation failed, this parameter will contain the error. If the sync operation succeeded, err will be null.

    • response Any

      The server's response. This value will be passed to the parse() method, which is expected to parse it and return an attribute hash.

Returns:

Boolean

Fire a custom event by name. The callback functions will be executed from the context specified when the event was created, and with the following parameters.

The first argument is the event type, and any additional arguments are passed to the listeners as parameters. If the first of these is an object literal, and the event is configured to emit an event facade, that object is mixed into the event facade and the facade is provided in place of the original object.

If the custom event object hasn't been created, then the event hasn't been published and it has no subscribers. For performance sake, we immediate exit in this case. This means the event won't bubble, so if the intention is that a bubble target be notified, the event must be published on this object first.

Parameters:

  • type String | Object

    The type of the event, or an object that contains a 'type' property.

  • arguments Object*

    an arbitrary set of parameters to pass to the handler. If the first of these is an object literal and the event is configured to emit an event facade, the event facade will replace that parameter after the properties the object literal contains are copied to the event facade.

Returns:

Boolean: True if the whole lifecycle of the event went through, false if at any point the event propagation was halted.

focus

() chainable

Causes the Widget to receive the focus by setting the "focused" attribute to "true".

get

Any

Returns the current value of the attribute. If the attribute has been configured with a 'getter' function, this method will delegate to the 'getter' to obtain the value of the attribute.

Parameters:

  • name String

    The name of the attribute. If the value of the attribute is an Object, dot notation can be used to obtain the value of a property of the object (e.g. get("x.y.z"))

Returns:

Any: The value of the attribute

getAttrs

(
  • attrs

Object

Gets multiple attribute values.

Parameters:

  • attrs String[] | Boolean

This is only really useful after the widget's DOM structure is in the document, either by render or by progressive enhancement.

Parameters:

  • [skinPrefix] String optional

    The prefix which the implementation uses for the skin ("yui3-skin-" is the default).

    NOTE: skinPrefix will be used as part of a regular expression:

    new RegExp('\\b' + skinPrefix + '(\\S+)')
    

    Although an unlikely use case, literal characters which may result in an invalid regular expression should be escaped.

Returns:

String: The name of the skin, or null, if a matching skin class is not found.

)
DataTable chainable

Provided by the datatable-mutable module.

Defined in datatable/js/mutable.js:329

Available since 3.5.0

Updates an existing record in the DataTable's data ModelList. The record can be provided explicitly or targeted by it's id (see ModelList's getById method), clientId, or index in the ModelList.

After locating the target Model, this relays the all other passed arguments to the Model's setAttrs method.

If a configuration object is passed as a second argument, and that object has sync: true set, the underlying Model will be save()d.

If the DataTable's autoSync attribute is set to true, the additional argument is not needed.

If syncing and the last argument is a function, that function will be used as a callback to the Model's save() method.

Parameters:

  • id Object | String | Number

    The Model instance or identifier

  • data Object

    New data values for the Model

  • [config] Object optional

    Configuration to pass along to setAttrs()

  • [callback] Function optional

    Callback function for Model's save()

    • err Error | Null

      If an error occurred or validation failed, this parameter will contain the error. If the sync operation succeeded, err will be null.

    • response Any

      The server's response. This value will be passed to the parse() method, which is expected to parse it and return an attribute hash.

Returns:

moveColumn

Parameters:

  • circular Boolean

    Boolean indicating if the parent's first child should be returned if the child has no next sibling.

Returns:

Widget: Widget instance.

on

(
  • type
  • fn
  • [context]
  • [arg*]
)
EventHandle

Subscribe a callback function to a custom event fired by this object or from an object that bubbles its events to this object.

 this.on("change", this._onChange, this);

Callback functions for events published with emitFacade = true will receive an EventFacade as the first argument (typically named "e"). These callbacks can then call e.preventDefault() to disable the behavior published to that event's defaultFn. See the EventFacade API for all available properties and methods. Subscribers to non-emitFacade events will receive the arguments passed to fire() after the event name.

To subscribe to multiple events at once, pass an object as the first argument, where the key:value pairs correspond to the eventName:callback.

 this.on({
     "attrChange" : this._onAttrChange,
     "change"     : this._onChange
 });

You can also pass an array of event names as the first argument to subscribe to all listed events with the same callback.

 this.on([ "change", "attrChange" ], this._onChange);

Returning false from a callback is supported as an alternative to calling e.preventDefault(); e.stopPropagation();. However, it is recommended to use the event methods whenever possible.

Parameters:

  • type String

    The name of the event

  • fn Function

    The callback to execute in response to the event

Parameters:

render

(

final chainable

Establishes the initial DOM for the widget. Invoking this method will lead to the creating of all DOM elements for the widget (or the manipulation of existing DOM elements for the progressive enhancement use case).

This method should only be invoked once for an initialized widget.

It delegates to the widget specific renderer method to do the actual work.

Parameters:

  • parentNode Object | String

    Optional. The Node under which the Widget is to be rendered. This can be a Node instance or a CSS selector string.

    If the selector string returns more than one Node, the first node will be used as the parentNode. NOTE: This argument is required if both the boundingBox and contentBox are not currently in the document. If it's not provided, the Widget will be rendered to the body of the current document in this case.

renderer

KEY_NAMES

Object static

Provided by the datatable-keynav module.

Defined in datatable/js/keynav.js:21

Mapping of key codes to friendly key names that can be used in the keyActions property and ARIA_ACTIONS property.

It contains aliases for the following keys:

  • backspace
  • tab
  • enter
  • esc
  • space
  • pgup
  • pgdown
  • end
  • home
  • left
  • up
  • right

keyActions

Object

Provided by the datatable-keynav module.

Defined in datatable/js/keynav.js:130

Table of actions to be performed for each key. It is loaded with a clone of ARIA_ACTIONS by default.

The key for each entry is either a key-code or an alias from the KEY_NAMES table. They can be prefixed with any combination of the modifier keys alt, ctrl, meta or shift each followed by a hyphen, such as "ctrl-shift-up" (modifiers, if more than one, should appear in alphabetical order).

The value for each entry should be a function or the name of a method in the DataTable instance. The method will receive the original keyboard EventFacade as its only argument.

If the value is a string and it cannot be resolved into a method, it will be assumed to be the name of an event to fire. The listener for that event will receive an EventFacade containing references to the cell that has the focus, the row, column and, unless it is a header row, the record it corresponds to. The second argument will be the original EventFacade for the keyboard event.

columns

Object[] | String[]

Provided by the datatable-core module.

Defined in datatable/js/core.js:39

Available since 3.5.0

Columns to include in the rendered table.

If omitted, the attributes on the configured recordType or the first item in the data collection will be used as a source.

This attribute takes an array of strings or objects (mixing the two is fine). Each string or object is considered a column to be rendered. Strings are converted to objects, so columns: ['first', 'last'] becomes columns: [{ key: 'first' }, { key: 'last' }].

DataTable.Core only concerns itself with a few properties of columns. These properties are:

  • key - Used to identify the record field/attribute containing content for this column. Also used to create a default Model if no recordType or data are provided during construction. If name is not specified, this is assigned to the _id property (with added incrementer if the key is used by multiple columns).
  • children - Traversed to initialize nested column objects
  • name - Used in place of, or in addition to, the key. Useful for columns that aren't bound to a field/attribute in the record data. This is assigned to the _id property.
  • id - For backward compatibility. Implementers can specify the id of the header cell. This should be avoided, if possible, to avoid the potential for creating DOM elements with duplicate IDs.
  • field - For backward compatibility. Implementers should use name.
  • _id - Assigned unique-within-this-instance id for a column. By order of preference, assumes the value of name, key, id, or _yuid. This is used by the rendering views as well as feature module as a means to identify a specific column without ambiguity (such as multiple columns using the same key.
  • _yuid - Guid stamp assigned to the column object.
  • _parent - Assigned to all child columns, referencing their parent column.

Default: (from `recordType` ATTRS or first item in the `data`)

It is similar to numberFormat but it applies to any column using the number formatter. The values are often retrieved from a resource of localized configuration.

Fires event numberFormatChange

Fires when the value for the configuration attribute numberFormat is changed. You can listen for the event using the on method if you wish to be notified before the attribute's value has changed, or using the after method if you wish to be notified after the attribute's value has changed.

Parameters:

  • e EventFacade
    An Event Facade object with the following attribute-specific properties added:
    • prevVal Any
      The value of the attribute, prior to it being set.
    • newVal Any
      The value the attribute is to be set to.
    • attrName String
      The name of the attribute being set.
    • subAttrName String
      If setting a property within the attribute's value, the name of the sub-attribute property being set.

recordset

Object[] | Recordset deprecated

Provided by the datatable-core module.

Defined in datatable/js/core.js:164

Deprecated: Use the `data` attribute

Available since 3.5.0

Deprecated as of 3.5.0. Passes through to the data attribute.

WARNING: get('recordset') will NOT return a Recordset instance as of 3.5.0. This is a break in backward compatibility.

Fires event recordsetChange

Fires when the value for the configuration attribute recordset is changed. You can listen for the event using the on method if you wish to be notified before the attribute's value has changed, or using the after method if you wish to be notified after the attribute's value has changed.

Parameters:

  • e EventFacade
    An Event Facade object with the following attribute-specific properties added:
    • prevVal Any
      The value of the attribute, prior to it being set.
    • newVal Any
      The value the attribute is to be set to.
    • attrName String
      The name of the attribute being set.
    • subAttrName String
      If setting a property within the attribute's value, the name of the sub-attribute property being set.

recordType

Function

Provided by the datatable-core module.

Defined in datatable/js/core.js:87

Available since 3.5.0

Model subclass to use as the model for the ModelList stored in the data attribute.

If not provided, it will try really hard to figure out what to use. The following attempts will be made to set a default value:

  1. If the data attribute is set with a ModelList instance and its model property is set, that will be used.
  2. If the data attribute is set with a ModelList instance, and its model property is unset, but it is populated, the ATTRS of the `constructor of the first item will be used.
  3. If the data attribute is set with a non-empty array, a Model subclass will be generated using the keys of the first item as its ATTRS (see the _createRecordClass method).
  4. If the columns attribute is set, a Model subclass will be generated using the columns defined with a key. This is least desirable because columns can be duplicated or nested in a way that's not parsable.
  5. If neither data nor columns is set or populated, a change event subscriber will listen for the first to be changed and try all over again.

Default: (see description)
