Native UI Inline-editor Angular (version 4+) component (demo)

Follow me twitter to be notified about new releases.

ngx-inline-editor is a library of Angular (version 4+) that allows you to create editable elements. Such technique is also known as click-to-edit or edit-in-place. It is based on ideas of angular-xeditable which is developed in AngularJS.

Version 0.1.0

Dependencies

Basically it does not depend on any libraries except Angular4 itself. For themes you may need to include Twitter Bootstrap CSS.

Angular 4+ Version

Angular 4 is now stable. Therefore, if encountering errors using this lib, ensure your version of Angular is compatible. The current version used to develop this lib is angular4 ^4.0.0.

Controls & Features

  • text
  • textarea
  • select
  • checkbox
  • radio
  • date
  • time
  • datetime
  • html5 inputs
    • pattern
    • number
    • range
  • typeahead
  • ui-select
  • complex form
  • editable row
  • editable column
  • editable table
  • themes

Quick start

  1. A recommended way to install ngx-inline-editor is through npm package manager using the following command:

npm i @qontu/ngx-inline-editor --save

  1. Include the basic theme or configure your own styles which are in the following path:

dist/themes/bootstrap.css

  1. Include Twitter Bootstrap and FontAwesome in your project.

Usage

Angular (4+) and later

Import InlineEditorModule into your app's modules:

import {InlineEditorModule} from '@qontu/ngx-inline-editor';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    InlineEditorModule
  ]
})

This makes all the @qontu/ngx-inline-editor components available for use in your app components.

Simple Example

You can find a complete example here

import {Component} from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'my-component',
    template: `
    <div>
        <inline-editor type="text" [(ngModel)]="editableText" (onSave)="saveEditable($event)" name="editableText1" size="8"></inline-editor>
    </div>
    <div>
        <inline-editor type="password" [(ngModel)]="editablePassword" (onSave)="saveEditable($event)"></inline-editor>
    </div>
    <div>
        <inline-editor type="textarea" [(ngModel)]="editableTextArea" (onSave)="saveEditable($event)"> </inline-editor>
    </div>
    <div>
        <inline-editor type="select" [(ngModel)]="editableSelect" (onSave)="saveEditable($event)" [options]="editableSelectOptions"
        value="valor"></inline-editor>
  </div>`
})
export class MyComponent {
  title = 'My component!';

  editableText = 'myText';
  editablePassword = 'myPassword';
  editableTextArea = 'Text in text area';
  editableSelect = 2;
  editableSelectOptions =[
    {value: 1, text: 'status1'},
    {value: 2, text: 'status2'},
    {value: 3, text: 'status3'},
    {value: 4, text: 'status4'}
  ];

  saveEditable(value) {
    //call to http service
    console.log('http.service: ' + value);
  }

        (onSave)="saveEditable($event)"
        name="editableSelect"
        disabled="false"
        [options]="editableSelectOptions"></inline-editor>
  • type [string] Specifies the type <input> element to display.

Typescript code:

  editableSelect = 2;
  editableSelectOptions =[
    {value: 1, text: 'status1'},
    {value: 2, text: 'status2'},
    {value: 3, text: 'status3'},
    {value: 4, text: 'status4'}

  saveEditable(value) {
    //call to http server
    console.log('http.server: ' + value);

  }
Parameter's configuration example
  • editableSelect [number] Specifies the default's value of the select.
  • editableSelectOptions [Array<optionItem> | Object: { data: Array<optionItem, value:string, text: string }] Specifies the array of items from which to select. Should be an array of objects with value and text properties. Is possible to configure key-value parameters using an object that specifies these fields and data.

  editableSelect = 2;
  editableSelectOptionsConfiguration = {
    data: [
      { id: 1, field: 'status1' },
      { id: 2, field: 'status2' },
      { id: 3, field: 'status3' },
      { id: 4, field: 'status4' }
    ],
    value: 'id',
    text: 'field'
  }

  saveEditable(value) {
    //call to http server
    console.log('http.server: ' + value);

  }
Children example

Is possible to configure sublevels/children to generate the select using an array of objects called children.

Typescript code:

 editableSelectOptionsTwoLevelsDefault = 1;
  editableSelectOptionsTwoLevelsConfiguration = {
    data: [
      {
        id: 1, field: 'status1',
        children: [
          { id: 5, field: 'status1.1' },
          { id: 6, field: 'status1.2' }
        ]
      },
      { id: 2, field: 'status2' },
      { id: 3, field: 'status3' },
      {
        id: 4, field: 'status4',
        children: [{ id: 7, field: 'status4.1' }]
      }
    ],
    value: 'id',
