Datatable vertical dynamic height

This example shows a vertically scrolling DataTable that makes use of the CSS3 vh unit in order to dynamically resize the viewport based on the browser window height. The vh unit is effectively a percentage of the browser window height. So the 20vh used in this example is 20% of the window height. The viewport size will update dynamically as the window is resized.

Datatable horizontal scroll

DataTables has the ability to show tables with horizontal scrolling, which is very useful for when you have a wide table, but want to constrain it to a limited horizontal display area. To enable x-scrolling simply set the prop scrollX. For best looking effect set columns width within object columns properties.


        import React from 'react';
        import { MDBDataTable } from 'mdbreact';

        const DatatablePage = () => {
          const data = {
            columns: [
              {
                label: 'Name',
                field: 'name',
                sort: 'asc',
                width: 150
              },
              {
                label: 'Surname',
                field: 'surname',
                sort: 'asc',
                width: 150
              },
              {
                label: 'Position',

Datatable horizontal and vertical scroll

In this example you can see DataTables doing both horizontal and vertical scrolling at the same time. Note also that pagination is enabled in this example, and the scrolling accounts for this.

React Bootstrap Datatables - API

This section present detailed information about Datatables usage, properties and customization. Dive into API references to find see all available props and methods.


Imports

To start working with Datatables you need just one component.
MDBDatatable contains huge amount of options and custom styles (corresponding to static tables). Note: Data object keys cant be null.


        import React from 'react';
        import { MDBDataTable } from 'mdbreact';
      

Usage

There are two ways to bind your data into Datatable
You can build an object of structured data, or bind the link to external API (Json from API must have the same structure as object described below).


        const DatatablePage = () => {
          const data = {
            columns: [
              {
                label: 'Name',
                field: 'name',
                sort: 'asc',
                width: 150
              },
              {
                label: 'Position',
                field: 'position',
                sort: 'asc',
                width: 270
              },
