The DataTable widget is responsible for rendering columnar data into a
highly customizable and fully accessible HTML table. The core
functionality of DataTable is to visualize structured data as a table.
A variety of class extensions can then be used to add features to the
table such as sorting and scrolling.
</p>
</div>

<div class="notice">
<h2 id="migration-intro">Upgrading from version 3.4.1 or older?</h2>
<p>
DataTable was refactored for 3.5.0. Some APIs were changed in backward
incompatible ways.
</p>
<p>
Read the <a href="migration.html">3.5.0 Migration Guide</a> for tips to
avoid unpleasant surprises. If you still run into issues, please
<a href="../../../projects/yui3/newticket/">file a ticket</a>.
</p>
<p>
If you are unable to upgrade due to unresolvable issues, you can use the
<a href="../datatable-deprecated/index.html">`datatable-deprecated`</a>
module suite, which is equivalent to the 3.4.1 implementation. But be
aware that these modules will be removed in a future version of YUI.
</p>
</div>
<h2 id="using">DataTable Basics</h2>
<p>
A basic DataTable is made of columns and rows. Define the columns you
want to display in your DataTable with the `columns` attribute. Rows are
created for you based on the data you provide to the `data` attribute.
</p>
<p>
Under the hood, the DataTable class uses a
<a href="../model-list/index.html">ModelList</a> instance to manage the row
data properties. Read the <a href="#data">Table Data Configuration</a>
section below for details about how to load, configure, and work with the
table data.
</p>
```
// Columns must match data object property names
var data = [
{ id: "ga-3475", name: "gadget", price: "$6.99", cost: "$5.99" },
{ id: "sp-9980", name: "sprocket", price: "$3.75", cost: "$3.25" },
{ id: "wi-0650", name: "widget", price: "$4.25", cost: "$3.75" }
];
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ["id", "name", "price"],
data: data,
// Optionally configure your table with a caption
caption: "My first DataTable!",
// and/or a summary (table attribute)
summary: "Example DataTable showing basic instantiation configuration"
});
table.render("#example");
```
<p>This code produces this table:</p>
<div id="basic-example" class="yui3-skin-sam"></div>
<script>
YUI({ filter: 'raw' }).use('datatable-base', function (Y) {
// Columns must match data object property names
var data = [
{ id: "ga-3475", name: "gadget", price: "$6.99", cost: "$5.99" },
{ id: "sp-9980", name: "sprocket", price: "$3.75", cost: "$3.25" },
{ id: "wi-0650", name: "widget", price: "$4.25", cost: "$3.75" }
];
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ["id", "name", "price"],
data: data,
caption: "My first DataTable!",
summary: "Example DataTable showing basic instantiation configuration"
});
table.render("#basic-example");
});
</script>
<h2 id="columns">Column Configuration</h2>
<p>
The `columns` attribute takes an array of field names that correspond to
property names in the `data` objects. These field names are called "keys".
As long as these keys exist in your data, DataTable will display the
values in the table. By default, the key is also used as the label of the
column header.
</p>
<p>
Use objects instead of key strings to customize how the cells in a column
display.
</p>
```
// Columns must match data object property names
var data = [
{ id: "ga-3475", name: "gadget", price: "$6.99", cost: "$5.99" },
{ id: "sp-9980", name: "sprocket", price: "$3.75", cost: "$3.25" },
{ id: "wi-0650", name: "widget", /* missing */ cost: "$3.75" }
];
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: [
"id",
{ key: "name", label: "part name" },
{ key: "price", allowHTML: true, emptyCellValue: "<em>(not set)</em>" },
"cost"
],
data: data
});
table.render("#example");
```
<p>This code produces this table:</p>
<div id="column-example1" class="yui3-skin-sam"></div>
<script>
YUI().use('datatable-base', function (Y) {
// Columns must match data object property names
var data = [
{ id: "ga-3475", name: "gadget", price: "$6.99", cost: "$5.99" },
{ id: "sp-9980", name: "sprocket", price: "$3.75", cost: "$3.25" },
{ id: "wi-0650", name: "widget", cost: "$3.75" }
];
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: [
"id",
{ key: "name", label: "part name" },
{ key: "price", allowHTML: true, emptyCellValue: "<em>(not set)</em>" },
"cost"
],
data: data
});
table.render("#column-example1");
});
</script>
<p>
Some column configurations affect the table headers and others affect the
data cells.
</p>
<p>
Use the `key` property to reference the associated data field when
configuring columns with objects. Other supported configuration
properties are listed in <a href="#column-config">Appendix A</a> below.
</p>
<h3 id="nested">Stacked Column Headers</h3>
<p>
Use the `children` column configuration to create multiple rows of column
headers.
</p>
```
var columns = [
'username',
{
// Important: Parent columns do NOT get a key...
// but DO get a label
label: "Access",
// Pass an array of column configurations (strings or objects) as children
children: [
'read',
'write',
]
}
];
var data = [
{ username: "root", read: true, write: true },
{ username: "spilgrim", read: true, write: false },
{ username: "fizzgig", read: false, write: false }
];
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: columns,
data : data
}).render("#example");
```
<p>This code produces this table:</p>
<div id="nested-example" class="yui3-skin-sam"></div>
<script>
YUI().use('datatable-base', function (Y) {
var data = [
{ username: "root", read: true, write: true },
{ username: "spilgrim", read: true, write: false },
{ username: "fizzgig", read: false, write: false }
];
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: [
'username',
{
// Important: Parent columns do NOT get a key...
// but DO get a label
label: "Access",
// Pass an array of column configurations (strings or objects) as children
children: [
'read',
'write'
]
}
],
data : data
}).render("#nested-example");
});
</script>
<p>
`children` takes an array of column configurations, just like the `columns`
attribute itself. The columns defined in the `children` property will have
header cells rendered below the parent column's header.
</p>
<p>
Columns that have `children` don't relate directly to the data cells in the
table rows, so they <strong>should not</strong> have a `key` configured.
They should, however, include a `label` to provide the header's content.
</p>
<h3 id="formatters">Formatting Cell Data</h3>
<p>
Customizing the content of the cells in your table is done using column
configurations. The most common formatting-related column configurations
are:
</p>
<ul>
<li>
`allowHTML` - set this to `true` if your cell data, `emptyCellValue`, or
`formatter` outputs HTML. By default, cell data is HTML escaped for
security.
</li>
<li>
`emptyCellValue` - string to populate cells where no data (empty
string, `undefined`, or `null`) is available in a record.
</li>
<li>
`formatter` - string or function used to translate the raw record data
for each cell in a given column into a format better suited to display.
</li>
<li>
`nodeFormatter` - function used to customize the DOM structure of a
cell, its row, or its surrounding elements. Use with caution.
</li>
</ul>
<p>
`formatter`s are expected to return the string content to populate each
cell in that column, and `nodeFormatter`s are provided with the cell Nodes
and expected to populate them using the Node API.
</p>
<p>
For best performance, <strong><a href="#formatter-vs-nodeformatter">avoid
`nodeFormatter`s unless absolutely necessary</a></strong>.
</p>
```
var columns = [
{
key: 'item',
formatter: '<a href="#{value}">{value}</a>',
allowHTML: true // Must be set or the html will be escaped
},
{
key: 'cost',
formatter: '${value}' // formatter template string
},
{
key: 'price',
formatter: function (o) {
if (o.value > 3) {
o.className += 'expensive';
}
return '$' + o.value.toFixed(2);
}
},
{
label: 'profit',
nodeFormatter: function (o) {
var profit = o.data.price - o.data.cost,
prefix = '$',
row;
if (profit < 0) {
prefix = '-' + prefix;
profit = Math.abs(profit);
row = o.cell.ancestor();
o.cell.addClass('negative');
// Assign a rowspan to the first cell and add a new row
// below this one to span the last three columns
row.one('td').setAttribute('rowspan', 2);
row.insert(
'<tr class="auth"><td colspan="3">' +
'<button class="ok">authorize</button>' +
'<button class="stop">discontinue</button>' +
'</td></tr>',
'after');
}
o.cell.set('text', prefix + profit.toFixed(2));
}
}
];

<p>
The parameters passed to `formatter` functions and `nodeFormatter`
functions are described in <a href="#formatter-props">Appendix B</a> and <a
href="#nodeformatter-props">Appendix C</a>, respectively. Also look for
what can be passed in to the columns in
<a href="#column-config">Appendix A</a>.
</p>
<p>
<strong>Note</strong>: It's highly recommended to keep the data in the
underlying `data` ModelList as pure data, free from presentational
concerns. For example, use real numbers, not numeric strings, and store
link urls and labels either in separate data fields or in a single data
field, but as separate properties of a value object. This allows the data
to be used for calculations such as sorting or averaging.
</p>
<h4 id="formatter-function">Setting content with `formatter` functions</h4>
<p>
Set the cell content with column `formatter`s by returning the desired
content string from the function. Alternately, just update `o.value` with
the new value in the object passed as an argument to the `formatter`. When
updating `o.value` <em>do not include a return statement</em>.
</p>
<p>
`formatters` are very powerful because not only do they have access to the
record's value for that column's field, but they also receive the rest of
the record's data, the record Model instance itself, and the column
configuration object. This allows you to include any extra configurations
in your column configuration that might be useful to customizing how cells
in the column are rendered.
</p>
```
function currency(o) {
return Y.DataType.Number.format(o.value, {
prefix : o.column.currencySymbol || '$',
decimalPlaces : o.column.decimalPlaces || 2,
decimalSeparator : o.column.decimalSeparator || '.',
thousandsSeparator: o.column.thousandsSeparator || ','
});
}
var cols = [
{ key: "price", formatter: currency, decimalPlaces: 3 },
...
```
<p>
See <a href="#formatter-props">Appendix B</a> for a list of all properties
passed to `formatter` functions.
</p>
<h4 id="nodeformatters">Setting content with `nodeFormatter` functions</h4>
<p>
Unlike `formatters` which can effectively default to the normal rendering
logic by leaving `o.value` unchanged, `nodeFormatters` must assign content
to the cells themselves. The cell's initial classes will be set up, but
that's it. Everything else is your responsibility.
</p>
<p>
<strong>`nodeFormatter`s should return `false`</strong>.
<a href="formatter-vs-nodeformatter">See below</a> for details.
</p>
<p>
While there are <a href="#formatter-vs-nodeformatter">few scenarios that
require `nodeFormatter`s</a>, they do have the benefits of having the Node
API for constructing more complex DOM subtrees and the ability to access
all nodes in the `<tbody>`. This means they can reference, and even modify,
cells in other rows.
</p>
<p>
Like `formatters`, `nodeFormatters` are provided with the data field value,
the record data, the record Model instance, and the column configuration
object.
</p>
<p>
See <a href="#nodeformatter-props">Appendix C</a> for a list of all
properties passed to `nodeFormatter` functions.
</p>
<h4 id="formatter-vs-nodeformatter">Why `formatter` and `nodeFormatter`?</h4>
<p>
For good rendering performance and memory management, DataTable creates
table content by assembling `innerHTML` strings from templates, with
`{placeholder}` tokens replaced with your data. However, this means that
the Nodes don't exist yet when a column's `formatter`s are applied.
</p>
<p>
To minimize the need to create Nodes for each cell, the default rendering
logic supports the addition of cell classes as well as row classes via
`formatter` functions. Event subscriptions should be
<a href="http://yuilibrary.com/yui/docs/event/delegation.html">delegated</a>
from the DataTable instance itself using the
<a href="http://yuilibrary.com/yui/docs/api/classes/DataTable.html#method_delegate">`delegate()` method</a>.
</p>
<p>
On the rare occasion that you <em>must</em> use Nodes to supply the cell
data, DataTable allows a second pass over the generated DOM elements once
the initial string concatenation has been completed and the full HTML
content created.
</p>
<p>
It is important to note that `nodeFormatters` will necessarily create a
Node instance for each cell in that column, which will increase the memory
footprint of your application. If the Node instance wrappers around the
DOM elements don't need to be maintained beyond the life of the
`nodeFormatter`, return `false` to remove them from the internal object
cache. <strong>This will not remove the rendered DOM, but it will remove
event subscriptions made on those Nodes</strong>.
</p>
<p>
In general, `nodeFormatter`s should only be used if absolutely necessary,
and should <em>always return `false`</em>.
</p>
<h4 id="formatters-vs-empty">Formatters vs. `emptyCellValue`</h4>
<p>
The `emptyCellValue` configuration is useful to provide fallback content in
the case of missing or empty column data, but it interacts with each type of
formatter differently.
</p>
<p>
String formatters will only be applied if the field data for that cell is
not `undefined`. This allows the `emptyCellValue` to populate the cell.
</p>
<p>
Function formatters are applied before the return value or (potentially
altered) `o.value` property is tested for `undefined`, `null`, or the empty
string. In any of these cases, the `emptyCellValue` populates the cell.
</p>
<p>
The `emptyCellValue` configuration is ignored by columns configured with
`nodeFormatter`s.
</p>
<h2 id="data">Table Data Configuration</h2>
<p>
Each record in the table is stored as a
<a href="../model/index.html">Model</a> instance, where the
keys of the record objects become Model attributes. This allows you to
interact with the models as you would any other <a
href="../base/index.html">Base</a>-based class, with `get(attr)`,
`set(attr, value)`, and subscribing to attribute change events.
</p>
```
var data = [
{ item: "widget", cost: 23.57, price: 47.5 },
{ item: "gadget", cost: 0.11, price: 6.99 },
{ item: "sprocket", cost: 4.08, price: 3.75 },
{ item: "nut", cost: 0.01, price: 0.25 }
];
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ["item", "cost", "price"],
data: data
});
var sprocket = table.getRecord(2);
// Fires a costChange event, and the table is updated if rendered
sprocket.set('cost', 2.65);
```
<p>
The Model class used to store the record data is created for you, based on
the objects in the `data` array. If `data` is not set, the column keys
identified in the `columns` configuration is used.
</p>
<h3 id="recordtype">Specifying the Record Model</h3>
<p>
To use a custom Model for your records, pass your Model subclass to the
`recordType` attribute.
</p>
```
var pieTable = new Y.DataTable({
recordType: Y.PieModel,
columns: ['slices', 'type'],
data: [
// Y.PieModel has attributes 'slices', which defaults to 6, and 'type',
// which defaults to 'apple'. Records can use these defaults.
{ type: 'lemon meringue' },
{ type: 'chocolate creme', slices: 8 },
{} // equivalent to { type: 'apple', slices: 6 }
]
});
// Y.PieModel has its idAttribute assigned to 'type', overriding the default
// of 'id'. Fetch a PieModel by its id.
var applePie = pieTable.getRecord('apple');
// eatSlice is a method on the Y.PieModel prototype
applePie.eatSlice();
```
<p>
Alternately, `recordType` will accept an array of attribute strings or an
`ATTRS` configuration object to make it easier to create custom attribute
behaviors without needing to explicitly build the Model subclass.
</p>
<p>
If the `columns` configuration is omitted, but the `recordType` is set, the
`columns` will default to the `recordType`'s attributes.
</p>
```
var data = [
{ item: "widget", cost: 23.57, price: 47.5 },
{ item: "gadget", cost: 0.11, price: 6.99 },
{ item: "sprocket", cost: 4.08, price: 3.75 },
{ item: "nut", cost: 0.01, price: 0.25 }
];
// Effectively synonymous with setting the columns attribute if no special
// column configuration is needed.
var table = new Y.DataTable({
recordType: [ 'item', 'cost', 'price' ],
data: data
});
// Or for more control, pass an ATTRS configuration object
var table = new Y.DataTable({
recordType: {
item: {},
cost: {
value: 0,
setter: function (val) { return +val || 0; }
},
price: {
valueFn: function () { return (this.get('cost') + 0.1) * 10; },
setter: function (val) { return +val || 0; }
}
},
data: data
});
```
<p>
When the table data is loaded asychronously, it is often a good idea to
configure the `recordType`. This can prevent the generation of a record
Model that is missing fields that are omitted from the `columns`
configuration because they aren't intended for viewing.
</p>
<h3 id="modellist">The `data` ModelList</h3>
<p>
The record Models are stored in a
<a href="../model-list/index.html">ModelList</a>, which is assigned to the
`data` <em>property</em> on the instance (for easier access than going through `table.get('data')`).
</p>
```
var records = [
{ item: "widget", cost: 23.57, price: 47.5 },
{ item: "gadget", cost: 0.11, price: 6.99 },
{ item: "sprocket", cost: 4.08, price: 3.75 }
];
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ["item", "cost", "price"],
data : records
});
// Add a new Model using the ModelList API. This will fire
// events and change the table if rendered.
table.data.add({ item: "nut", cost: 0.01, price: 0.25 });
```
<p>
When assigning the DataTable's `data` attribute with an array, a ModelList
is created for you. But you can also pass a ModelList instance if you are
sharing a ModelList between widgets on the page, or you have created custom
Model and ModelList classes with additional logic, such as adding a
<a href="../model-list/#implementing-a-list-sync-layer">data sync layer</a>.
</p>
```
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ['type', 'slices'],
data: new Y.PieList()
});
// The Y.PieList class implements a sync layer, enabling its load() method
table.data.load(function () {
table.render('#pies');
});
```
<h3 id="getting-data">Getting Remote Table Data</h3>
<p>
To fetch remote data, you have three options:
</p>
<ol>
<li>
<p>
<strong>For quick one-offs</strong>, you can load and parse the
data manually, using `Y.io(...)`, `Y.jsonp(...)`, etc., then assign
that data to the DataTable's `data` attribute. This isn't very
elegant or maintainable, so is best avoided for anything other than
proofs of concept.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
<strong>For the most control</strong>, better maintainability, and
better encapsulation of business logic, create Model and ModelList
subclasses that
<a href="../model-list/#implementing-a-list-sync-layer">implement a
sync layer</a> as suggested above.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
<strong>For common read-only scenarios</strong>, use the
<a href="{{apiDocs}}/classes/Plugin.DataTableDataSource.html">`Y.Plugin.DataTableDataSource`</a>
plugin to bind your table to a
<a href="../datasource/index.html">`DataSource`</a> instance. Use
plugins to add DataSource features.
</p>
</li>
</ol>
```
// Create a JSONP DataSource to query YQL
var myDataSource = new Y.DataSource.Get({
source: 'http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?format=json&' +
'env=store%3A%2F%2Fdatatables.org%2Falltableswithkeys&q='
});
myDataSource.plug(Y.Plugin.DataSourceJSONSchema, {
schema: {
resultListLocator: 'query.results.Result',
resultFields: [
'Title',
'Phone',
{
// Important that record fields NOT include ".", so
// extract nested data with locators
key: 'Rating',
locator: "Rating.AverageRating"
}
]
}
})
.plug(Y.Plugin.DataSourceCache, {
max: 3
});
// No data is provided at construction because it will load via the
// DataTableDataSource plugin
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ['Title', 'Phone', 'Rating'],
summary: 'Pizza places near 98089'
});
table.plug(Y.Plugin.DataTableDataSource, {
datasource: myDataSource
})
// Initially render an empty table and show a loading message
table.render('#pizza')
.showMessage('loadingMessage');
// Load the data into the table
table.datasource.load({
request: encodeURIComponent(
'select *' +
' from local.search' +
' where zip="94089"' +
' and query="pizza"');
});
```
<h2 id="features">DataTable Modules and Features</h2>
<p>
For a basic, stripped down `Y.DataTable` class, include the `datatable-base`
module in your `use()`.
</p>
<p>
Feature modules, such as `datatable-sort`, will bring in `datatable-base`
automatically. By including only feature modules in your `use()`, you will
get a `Y.DataTable` that supports specifically those features, without
extra code for other features you won't be using.
</p>
<p>
The `datatable` module is a bundle of `datatable-base` plus a set of common
feature modules. Other feature modules need to be included explicitly in
`use()`.

<h3 id="base">Features in `DataTable.Base`</h3>
<p>
By including only `datatable-base` in your `use()` line, you get both
`Y.DataTable` and `Y.DataTable.Base` classes. With no other module
inclusion, these classes are effectively the same. When additional
DataTable related modules are included, those modules' features will
usually be added to `Y.DataTable`, but <strong>never</strong> to
`Y.DataTable.Base`.
</p>
<p>
Though it can be instantiated, the purpose of `Y.DataTable.Base` is
primarily as a superclass to a custom DataTable implementation that has a
locked set of features that will not be modified, as `Y.DataTable` can be,
by the inclusion of other modules.
</p>
```
// Create a custom DataTable that includes only the core set of APIs, plus
// sorting and message support.
Y.MyDataTable = Y.Base.create('myTable', Y.DataTable.Base,
[ Y.DataTable.Sortable, Y.DataTable.Message ]);
Y.use('datatable-scroll', function (Y) {
// Y.DataTable now has support for scrolling
var table = new Y.DataTable({ scrollable: 'y', ... });
// Y.MyDataTable does not (the config does nothing)
var myTable = new Y.MyDataTable({ scrollable: 'y', ... });
});
```
<p>
`Y.DataTable.Base` includes the `columns`, `data`, `caption`, and other
basic table attributes, the underlying ModelList and View rendering
architecture, as well as methods to fetch rows and cells or columns and
records.
</p>
<p>
Rendering features include most column configurations, such as `children`
and `allowHTML`, as well as column formatting options `formatter`,
`nodeFormatter`, `cellTemplate`, etc.
</p>
<h3 id="datatable-message">Table Messages</h3>
<p>
The `datatable-message` module adds the ability to display a message in the
table body. By default, the "emptyMessage" will display when the table's
ModelList has no data records. The message will hide when data is added.
</p>
```
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ["id", "name", "price"],
data: []
}).render('#example');
```
<p>This code produces this table:</p>
<div id="message-example" class="yui3-skin-sam"></div>
<script>
YUI({ filter: 'raw' }).use('datatable-message', function (Y) {
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ["id", "name", "price"],
data: []
}).render('#message-example');
});
</script>
<p>
Use `table.showMessage("message")` and `table.hideMessage()` to toggle the
message display.
</p>
<p>
`showMessage` supports internationalized strings by using a few named
strings, which are registered in the language packs for the
`datatable-message` module . These strings are currently:
</p>
<ul>
<li>
`table.showMessage("emptyMessage")` defaults to "No data to display".
</li>
<li>
`table.showMessage("loadingMessage")` defaults to "Loading...".
</li>
</ul>
<p>
Other values passed to `showMessage` will pass that content directly
through to the message Node.
</p>
<h3 id="colwidths">Column Width Configuration</h3>
<p>
The `datatable-column-widths` module adds basic support for specifying
column widths.
</p>
```
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: [
{ key: 'item', width: '125px' },
{ key: 'cost', formatter: '${value}' },
...
],
data : data
}).render("#example");
```
<p>This code produces this table:</p>
<div id="colwidths-example" class="yui3-skin-sam"></div>
<script>
YUI({ filter: 'raw' }).use('datatable-column-widths', function (Y) {
var data = [
{ item: "widget", cost: 23.57, price: 47.5 },
{ item: "gadget", cost: 0.11, price: 6.99 },
{ item: "sprocket", cost: 4.08, price: 3.75 },
{ item: "nut", cost: 0.01, price: 0.25 }
];
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: [
{ key: 'item', width: '125px' },
{ key: 'cost', formatter: '${value}' },
{ key: 'price', formatter: '${value}' },
{ key: 'profit', formatter: function (o) {
var price = o.data.price,
cost = o.data.cost;
return (((price - cost) / cost) * 100).toFixed(2) + '%';
}
}
],
data : data
}).render("#colwidths-example");
});
</script>
<p>
<strong>CAVEAT</strong>: Column widths will expand beyond the configured
value if column cells contain data that is long and can't line-wrap. Also,
column widths may be reduced below the configured value if the table width
(by configuring the DataTable's `width` attribute, or constrained by a
narrow containing element) is too narrow to fit all data at the configured
widths.
</p>
<p>
To force column widths, including cell data truncation and allowing the
table to spill beyond its configured or inherited width, wrap the cell
content in a `<div>` either by configuring the column's `formatter` or
`cellTemplate`, then assign the `<div>`'s CSS style with the desired width
(or "inherit"), plus `overflow: hidden;`. Then set the DataTable column's
`width` configuration accordingly.
</p>
<h3 id="sorting">Column sorting</h3>
<p>
The `datatable-sort` module adds support for sorting the table rows either
through the added APIs or by clicking on the table headers.
</p>
<p>
By default, when `datatable-sort` is included, DataTables will inspects
the `columns` objects, looking for `sortable: true` to enable table sorting
by those columns, triggered by clicking on their respective headers.
</p>
```
var cols = [
{ key: "Company", sortable: true },
{ key: "Phone" },
{ key: "Contact", sortable: true }
];
```
<p>
For convenience, you can enable header-click sorting for all columns by
setting the `sortable` attribute to `true`, or pass an array of column keys
to enable just those column's headers.
</p>
```
// Set all columns to be sortable
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ["Company", "Phone", "Contact"],
data: ...
sortable: true
}).render("#example");
```
<p>This code produces this table:</p>
<div id="sort-example1" class="yui3-skin-sam"></div>
<script>
YUI({ filter: 'raw' }).use('datatable-sort', function (Y) {
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ['Company', 'Phone', 'Contact'],
data: [
{ Company: "Company Bee", Phone: "415-555-1234", Contact: "Sally Spencer"},
{ Company: "Acme Company", Phone: "650-555-4444", Contact: "John Jones"},
{ Company: "Indutrial Industries", Phone: "408-555-5678", Contact: "Robin Smith"}
],
sortable: true
}).render('#sort-example1');
});
</script>
<p>
Hold down the `shift` key while clicking on column headers to subsort by
that column. Doing so repeatedly will toggle the subsort direction.
</p>
<p>
As long as the `datatable-sort` module has been included, you will always
be able to sort the table data through the API, even by columns that aren't
configured to accept header-click sorting.
</p>
<p>
When a table is sorted, any new records added to the DataTable's ModelList
will be inserted at the proper sorted index, as will the created table
rows.
</p>
<p>
Disable header-click sorting by setting `sortable` to `false`.
</p>
<h4 id="customsort">Custom Sorting</h4>
<p>
Assign a function to a column's `sortFn` to support customized sorting. The
function will receive the two records being compared and a boolean flag
indicating a descending sort was requested.
</p>
```
var columns = [
{
key: 'id',
label: '&#9679;', // a big dot
formatter: function (o) {
return o.value ? '' : '&#9679;'; // only new records have a dot
},
sortable: true,
sortFn: function (a, b, desc) {
var aid = a.get('id'),
bid = b.get('id'),
acid = a.get('clientId'),
bcid = b.get('clientId'),
order = // existing records are equivalent
(aid && bid) ? 0 :
// new records are grouped apart from existing records
(aid && -1) || (bid && 1) ||
// new records are sorted by insertion order
(acid > bcid) ? 1 : -(acid < bcid);
return desc ? -order : order;
}
},
...
```
<p>
The function must return 1, 0, or -1. 1 specifies that the Model passed as
the first parameter should sort below the Model passed as the second
parameter. -1 for above, and 0 if they are equivalent for the purpose of
this sort.
</p>
<h4 id="sortapi">Sorting Methods</h4>
<p>
To sort the table in the code, call `table.sort(NAME OR KEY)`. To
toggle the sort direction, call `table.toggleSort(NAME OR KEY)`.
</p>
```
// Sorts the table by values in the price field in ascending order
table.sort('price');
// Flips to descending
table.toggleSort('price');
```
<p>
To sort by multiple columns, pass an array of column keys to `sort` or
`toggleSort`.
</p>
<p>
Calling `toggleSort` with no arguments will reverse all current sort
directions. Calling with specific column names or keys will toggle only
those columns.
</p>
```
// Sort first by author, subsort by title in ascending order
table.sort(['author', 'title']);
// Now descending by author then title
// same as table.toggleSort(['author', 'title']);
table.toggleSort();
// Now ascending by author, descending by title
table.toggleSort('author');
```
<p>
To specify a sort direction, pass an object instead of a string to `sort`.
The object should have the column name as the key, and sort direction as its
value.
</p>
```
// Explicitly sort by price in descending order
table.sort({ price: 'desc' });
// Each column gets its own object
table.sort([{ author: 'desc' }, { title: 'desc' }]);
```
<p>
Acceptable values for the sort direction are "asc", "desc", 1, and -1. 1 is
equivalent to "asc", and -1 to "desc".
</p>
<h4 id="sortby">The `sortBy` Attribute</h4>
<p>
Every sort operation updates the `sortBy` attribute. You can also trigger
a sort by setting this attribute directly. It accepts the same values as
the `sort` method.
</p>
```
// Sort by author in descending order, then by title in ascending order
table.set('sortBy', [{ author: -1 }, 'title']);
```
<p>
To specify an initial sort order for your table, assign this attribute
during instantiation. This will sort the data as soon as it is added
to the table's ModelList.
</p>
```
// Pre-sort the data
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ['item', 'cost', 'price'],
data: [...],
sortBy: { price: -1 }
});
```
<h4 id="sortevent">The `sort` Event</h4>
<p>
Clicking on a column header, or calling the `sort` or `toggleSort` methods
will fire a `sort` method containing an `e.sortBy` property that
corresponds to the requested sort column and direction. The value will be
in either string or object format, depending on how each method was used.
</p>
<p>
Preventing the `sort` event will prevent the `sortBy` attribute from being
updated. Updating the `sortBy` attribute directly will not fire the `sort`
event, but will still sort the data and update the table.
</p>
<h3 id="mutation">Table Mutation APIs (`addRow`, etc)</h3>
<p>
The `datatable-mutable` module adds APIs for adding, removing, and
modifying records and columns.
</p>
<h4 id="column-mutation">Column Mutation Methods</h4>
<p>
Use the methods `addColumn`, `removeColumn`, `modifyColumn`, and
`moveColumn` to update the table's configured `columns`.
</p>
```
// Insert a column for the profit field in the data records as the third column
table.addColumn('profit', 2);
// Actually, make that the fourth column
table.moveColumn('profit', 3);
// Actually, strike that. Don't show it after all
table.removeColumn('profit');
// Instead, add a formatter to the price column that includes the profit data
table.modifyColumn('price', {
formatter: function (o) {
return o.value + ' (' + (o.data.profit / o.data.cost).toFixed(2) + '%)';
}
});
```
<p>
Each column mutation method fires an identically named event. See
<a href="{{apiDocs}}/classes/DataTable.html">the API docs</a> for details.
</p>
<h4 id="row-mutation">Row Mutation Methods</h4>
<p>
Use the methods `addRow`, `addRows`, `removeRow`, and `modifyRow` to update
the table's ModelList.
</p>
```
table.addRow({ item: 'collet', cost: 0.42, price: 2.65 });
table.addRows([
{ item: 'nut', cost: 0.42, price: 2.65 },
{ item: 'washer', cost: 0.01, price: 0.08 },
{ item: 'bit', cost: 0.19, price: 0.97 }
]);
// Remove table records by their Model, id, clientId, or index
table.removeRow(0);
// Modify a record by passing its id, clientId, or index, followed by an
// object with new field values
table.modifyRow('record_4', { cost: 0.74 });
```
<p>
Everything that's done by these methods can be accomplished through the
table's ModelList instance methods, but having methods on the table itself
can make the code more readable.
</p>
```
// Same as table.addRow(...);
table.data.add({ item: 'collet', cost: 0.42, price: 2.65 });
```
<p>
By default, changes made to the table are only local, they don't update the
server or other data origin if the data was served remotely. However, if
your table's ModelList is built with a sync layer, the mutation methods
can also trigger the appropriate sync behavior by passing an additional
argument to the methods, an object with the property `sync` set to `true`.
</p>
```
// Tell the server we're down to one slice of apple pie!
table.modifyRow('apple', { slices: 1 }, { sync: true });
// Uh oh, make that 0. No more apple pie :(
table.removeRow('apple', { sync: true });
```
<p>
If all modifications are destined for the server/origin, you can set the
`autoSync` attribute to `true`, and the row mutation methods will
automatically call into the sync layer.
</p>
```
var pies = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ['type', 'slices'],
data: new Y.PieList()
autoSync: true
});
pies.data.load(function () {
pies.render('#pie-cart');
// The new PieModel's save() method is called, notifying the server
pies.addRow({ type: 'pecan', slices: 8 });
// Let us eat some pie!
pies.modifyRow('lemon meringue', { slices: 5 });
});
```
<h3 id="scrolling">Scrolling</h3>
<p>
<strong>Note:</strong> Scrolling is not currently supported on the Android
WebKit browser.
</p>
<p>
Scrolling functionality can be added to `Y.DataTable` by including
`datatable-scroll` module in your `use()`. `datatable-scroll` is
<strong>NOT</strong> included in the `datatable` rollup module, so must be
included separately.
</p>
<p>
Enable scrolling by setting the `scrollable` attribute, which accepts values
"x", "y", "xy", `true` (same as "xy"), or `false` (the default).
</p>
<p>
Note, vertical scrolling also requires the table's `height` attribute to be
set, and horizontal scrolling requires the `width` to be set.
</p>
```
// Data from the seafoodwatch YQL table as of 3/16/2012
var data = [
{ "fish": "Barramundi (Imported Farmed in Open Systems)", "recommendation": "avoid" },
{ "fish": "Caviar, Paddlefish (Wild caught from U.S.)", "recommendation": "avoid" },
{ "fish": "Caviar, Sturgeon (Imported Wild-caught)", "recommendation": "avoid" },
...
];
// Enable vertical scrolling with scrollable "y". The width is also set, but
// because scrollable is not "x" or "xy", this just sets the table width.

</script>
<h2 id="events">DataTable Events</h2>
<p>
DataTable is a composition of supporting class instances and extensions, so
to centralize event reporting, it is a bubble target for its `data`
ModelList as well as the View instances used for rendering.
</p>
<p>
In other words, some events you may need to subscribe to using an event
prefix to be notified. Often, using a wildcard prefix is the simplest
method to ensure your subscribers will be notified, even if classes change.
</p>
```
// The sort event is from an extension, so it originates from DataTable
table.after('sort', function (e) { ... });
// Model changes originate from the record's Model instance, propagate to the
// table's ModelList, then finally to the DataTable, so they must be
// subscribed with an event prefix. In this case, we'll use a wildcard
// prefix.
table.after('*:priceChange', function (e) { ... });
```
<p>
DataTable generates a custom Model class with the "record" event prefix, if
you want to be more specific. Otherwise, if your table uses a custom Model
class for its `recordType`, you can prefix Model events with the appropriate
prefix.
</p>
```
// Allow DataTable to generate the Model class automatically
var table = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ['items', 'cost', 'price'],
data: [
{ item: "widget", cost: 23.57, price: 47.5 },
{ item: "gadget", cost: 0.11, price: 6.99 },
...
]
});
// generated Model classes have prefix "record"
table.after('record:change', function (e) { ... });
// PieList uses PieModels, which have a prefix of, you guessed it, "pie"
var pies = new Y.DataTable({
columns: ['type', 'slices'],
data: new Y.PieList()
});
pies.on('pie:slicesChange', function (e) {
if (e.target.get('type') === 'chocolate creme') {
// Oh no you don't!
e.preventDefault();
}
});
```

Adds a style `width` setting to an associated `<col>`

<p>
Note, the assigned width will not truncate cell content, and
it will not preserve the configured width if doing so would
compromise either the instance's `width` configuration or
the natural width of the table's containing DOM elements.
</p>
<p>
If absolute widths are required, it can be accomplished with
some custom CSS and the use of a `cellTemplate`, or
`formatter`. See

<p>
Allows a column to be sorted using a custom algorithm. The
function receives three parameters, the first two being the
two record Models to compare, and the third being a boolean
`true` if the sort order should be descending.
</p>
<p>
The function should return `-1` to sort `a` above `b`, `-1`
to sort `a` below `b`, and `0` if they are equal. Keep in
mind that the order should be reversed when `desc` is
`true`.
</p>
<p>
The `desc` parameter is provided to allow `sortFn`s to
always sort certain values above or below others, such as
always sorting `null`s on top.

The value is populated by the first of `name`, `field`,
`key`, `id`, or `_yuid` to have a value. If that value
has already been used (such as when multiple columns have
the same `key`), an incrementer is added to the end. For
example, two columns with `key: "id"` will have `_id`s of
"id" and "id2". `table.getColumn("id")` will return the
first column, and `table.getColumn("id2")` will return the
second.

By default, liner elements aren't rendered into cells, but
to implement absolute column widths, some cell liner
element with `width` and `overflow` style is required
(barring a table style of `table-layout: fixed`). This may
be applied to the columns `cellTemplate` configuration or
to the `bodyView` instance's `CELL_TEMPLATE` for all
columns.
</p>
