Angular Editable Table - 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, ButtonsModule } from 'ng-uikit-pro-standard';
