MUI-Datatables - Datatables for Material-UI

Build Status NPM Downloads Coverage Status npm version

MUI-Datatables is a responsive datatables component built on Material-UI. It comes with features like filtering, resizable columns, view/hide columns, draggable 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 "vertical", "standard", and "simple" for mobile/tablet devices.

Version 3 has been released! You can read about the updates here!

Table of contents

Install

npm install mui-datatables --save

If your project doesn't already use them, you need to install @material-ui/core and @material-ui/icons as well.

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]]). The customBodyRender and customBodyRenderLite options can be used to control the data diaplay.
options object Options used to describe table
components object Custom components used to render the table

Options:

Name Type Default Description
caseSensitive boolean false Enable/disable case sensitivity for search.
confirmFilters boolean false Works in conjunction with the customFilterDialogFooter option and makes it so filters have to be confirmed before being applied to the table. When this option is true, the customFilterDialogFooter callback will receive an applyFilters function which, when called, will apply the filters to the table. Example
columnOrder array An array of numbers (column indices) indicating the order the columns should be displayed in. Defaults to the order provided by the Columns prop. This option is useful if you'd like certain columns to swap positions (see draggableColumns option).
count number User provided override for total number of rows.
customFilterDialogFooter function Add a custom footer to the filter dialog. customFilterDialogFooter(curentFilterList: array, applyFilters: function) => React Component
customFooter function Render a custom table footer. function(count, page, rowsPerPage, changeRowsPerPage, changePage, textLabels: object) => string| React Component Example
customRowRender function Override default row rendering with custom function. customRowRender(data, dataIndex, rowIndex) => React Component
customSearch function Override default search with custom function. customSearch(searchQuery: string, currentRow: array, columns: array) => boolean
customSearchRender function Render a custom table search. customSearchRender(searchText: string, handleSearch, hideSearch, options) => React Component
customSort function Override default sorting with custom function. If you just need to override the sorting for a particular column, see the sortCompare method in the column options. function(data: array, colIndex: number, order: string) => array Example
customTableBodyFooterRender function Render a footer under the table body but above the table's standard footer. This is useful for creating footers for individual columns. Example
customToolbar function Render a custom toolbar
customToolbarSelect function Render a custom selected rows toolbar. function(selectedRows, displayData, setSelectedRows) => void
download boolean true Show/hide download icon from toolbar
downloadOptions object see -> An object of options to change the output of the CSV file:

  • filename: string
  • separator: string
  • filterOptions: object
    • useDisplayedColumnsOnly: boolean
    • useDisplayedRowsOnly: boolean

Default Value:{filename: 'tableDownload.csv', separator: ','}

draggableColumns object {} An object of options describing how dragging columns should work. The options are:

  • enabled:boolean: Indicates if draggable columns are enabled. Defaults to false.
  • transitionTime:number: The time in milliseconds it takes for columns to swap positions. Defaults to 300.

To disable the dragging of a particular column, see the "draggable" option in the columns options. Dragging a column to a new position updates the columnOrder array and triggers the onColumnOrderChange callback.
elevation number 4 Shadow depth applied to Paper component.
enableNestedDataAccess string "" If provided a non-empty string (ex: "."), it will use that value in the column's names to access nested data. For example, given a enableNestedDataAccess value of "." and a column name of "phone.cell", the column would use the value found in phone:{cell:"555-5555"}. Any amount of nesting will work. Example demonstrates the functionality.
expandableRows boolean false Enable/disable expandable rows. Example

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
customBodyRender function Function that returns a string or React component. Used to display data within all table cells of a given column. The value returned from this function will be used for filtering in the filter dialog. If this isn't need, you may want to consider customBodyRenderLite instead. function(value, tableMeta, updateValue) => string| React Component Example
customBodyRenderLite function Function that returns a string or React component. Used to display data within all table cells of a given column. This method performs better than customBodyRender but has the following caveats:

  • The value returned from this function is not used for filtering, so the filter dialog will use the raw data from the data array.
  • This method only gives you the dataIndex and rowIndex, leaving you to lookup the column value.

function(dataIndex, rowIndex) => string| React Component Example
customHeadLabelRender function Function that returns a string or React component. Used for creating a custom header to a column. This method only affects the display in the table's header, other areas of the table (such as the View Columns popover), will use the column's label. function(columnMeta : object) => string| React Component
customFilterListOptions object (These options only affect the filter chips that display after filters are selected. To modify the filters themselves, see filterOptions)

  • render: function that returns a string or array of strings used as the chip label(s). function(value) => string OR arrayOfStrings Example
  • update: function that returns a filterList (see above) allowing for custom filter updates when removing the filter chip. filterType must be set to "custom". function(filterList, filterPos, index) => filterList Example

customHeadRender function Function that returns a string or React component. Used as display for column header. function(columnMeta, handleToggleColumn, sortOrder) => string| React Component
display string 'true' Display column in table. Possible values:

  • true: Column is visible and toggleable via the View Columns popover in the Toolbar.
  • false: Column is not visible but can be made visible via the View Columns popover in the Toolbar.
  • excluded: Column is not visible and not toggleable via the View Columns popover in the Toolbar.

See also: viewColumns and filter options.

download boolean true Display column in CSV download file.
draggable boolean true Determines if a column can be dragged. The draggableColumns.enabled option must also be true.
empty boolean false This denotes whether the column has data or not (for use with intentionally empty columns).
filter boolean true Display column in filter list.
filterList array Filter value list Example
filterOptions object

These options affect the filter display and functionality from the filter dialog. To modify the filter chips that display after selecting filters, see customFilterListOptions

This option is an object of several options for customizing the filter display and how filtering works.

  • names: custom names for the filter fields Example
  • logic: custom filter logic Example
  • display(filterList, onChange(filterList, index, column), index, column, filterData): Custom rendering inside the filter dialog 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.
  • renderValue: A function to customize filter choices Example. Example use case: changing empty strings to "(empty)" in a dropdown.
  • fullWidth (boolean): Will force a filter option to take up the grid's full width.

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.
hint string Display hint icon with string as tooltip on hover.
print boolean true Display column when printing.
searchable boolean true Exclude/include column from search results.
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
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
sort boolean true Enable/disable sorting on column.
sortCompare function Custom sort function for the column. Takes in an order string and returns a function that compares the two column values. If this method and options.customSort are both defined, this method will take precedence. (order) => ({data: val1}, {data: val2}) => number Example
sortDescFirst boolean false Causes the first click on a column to sort by desc rather than asc. Example
sortThirdClickReset boolean false Allows for a third click on a column header to undo any sorting on the column. Example
viewColumns boolean true Allow user to toggle column visibility through 'View Column' list.

customHeadRender is called with these arguments:

function(columnMeta: {
  customHeadRender: func,
  display: enum('true', 'false', 'excluded'),
  filter: boolean,
  sort: 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 - Please use currentTableData instead
  currentTableData: array, // The current 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>
    );

  }
}

Custom Components

You can pass custom components to further customize the table:

import React from "react";
import Chip from '@material-ui/core/Chip';
import MUIDataTable, { TableFilterList } from "mui-datatables";

const CustomChip = ({ label, onDelete }) => {
    return (
        <Chip
            variant="outlined"
            color="secondary"
            label={label}
            onDelete={onDelete}
        />
    );
};

const CustomFilterList = (props) => {
    return <TableFilterList {...props} ItemComponent={CustomChip} />;
};

class CustomDataTable extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
            <MUIDataTable
                columns={columns}
                data={data}
                components={{
                  TableFilterList: CustomFilterList,
                }}
            />
        );
    }
}

Supported customizable components:

  • Checkbox - A special 'data-description' prop lets you differentiate checkboxes Example. Valid values: ['row-select', 'row-select-header', 'table-filter', 'table-view-col'].The dataIndex is also passed via the "data-index" prop.
  • ExpandButton Example
  • TableBody
  • TableViewCol - The component that displays the view/hide list of columns on the toolbar.
  • TableFilterList - You can pass ItemComponent prop to render custom filter list item.
  • TableFooter
  • TableHead
  • TableResize
  • TableToolbar
  • TableToolbarSelect
  • Tooltip

For more information, please see this example. Additionally, all examples can be viewed live at our CodeSandbox.

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",
    },
  }
  ...
}
