Advanced table options

For advanced options of the tables have a look at specific documentation pages listed below.

Table sort

This functionality lets you sort the data of the tables according to any specific columns.

Table editable

Table editable allows you to edit existing data within the table and add new data to the table.

Angular Table Scroll - API

In this section you will find advanced information about the Table component. You will find out which modules are required in this component, what are the possibilities of configuring the component, and what events and methods you can use in working with it.

Modules used

In order to speed up your application, you can choose to import only the modules you actually need, instead of importing the entire MDB Angular library. Remember that importing the entire library, and immediately afterwards a specific module, is bad practice, and can cause application errors.

                      
                // MDB Angular Pro
                import { WavesModule, TableModule } from 'ng-uikit-pro-standard';

                // MDB Angular Free
                import { WavesModule, TableModule } from 'angular-bootstrap-md';
                      
                    

Directive

MdbTableScrollDirective

Selector: mdbTableScroll

Type: MdbTableScrollDirective


Inputs

Name Type Default Description Example
scrollY boolean false Allows you to scroll the array along the Y axis (the height one). It is also required to add the maxHeight input, which determines the maximum height of the table. scrollY="true"
maxHeight number null Sets the maximum height of the table, after which a scrollbar is added along the Y axis of the table. This input is required for table scrolling to work properly. maxHeight="200"
scrollX boolean false Allows you to scroll the array along the X axis (the width one). It is also required to add the maxWidth input, which determines the maximum width of the table. scrollX="true"
maxWidth number null Sets the maximum width of the table, after which a scrollbar is added along the X axis of the table. This input is required for table scrolling to work properly. maxWidth="200"
