# Data properties

You have to provide columns and rows properties to the datagrid to show some data. The properties of each column object define how the data will be rendered -

  • field - where the cell data comes from (string|function)
  • header - column header (string|object)
  • width - column width (number, in pixels)
  • align - cell text alignment (left|right|center)
  • format - number/date format (string|function)
  • fixed - fixed (true/false) for columns on the left or right side

The style (string|object) or className properties allow to change the styling of the column and cell elements.

const columns = [
  {header: 'Code', field: 'customerID', width: 80, style: 'background:#def', fixed: true},
  {header: 'Company Name', field: 'companyName', width: 160},
  {header: 'Contact', field: 'contactName', width: 120},
  {header: 'Title', field: 'contactTitle', width: 120},
  {header: 'Address', field: 'address', width: 120, align: 'right'}

const rows = northwind.customers;
<ax-datagrid [columns]="columns" [rows]="rows"></ax-datagrid>

# User events

In addition to the standard DOM keyboard and mouse events the datagrid emits composite mouse event which makes it easier to find the elements affected by the user action -

function onMouse({row, column}){
    alert(`row ${row.key} clicked!`);
<ax-datagrid (mouse)="onMouse($event)" [columns]="columns" [rows]="rows"></ax-datagrid>
