Using Datatable sorting and pagination with data source from


Topic: Using Datatable sorting and pagination with data source from API

maticdiba pro asked 2 years ago

Hi, I have a massive dataset that I would like to display with datatables. The issue is I would like to connect the source to my API. Whenever the client changes sort, pagination, enters search query, ... I would like to make call to my API with those parameters. Is there any example how to achieve that? Is that even possible or do I have to implement that from the scratch.

Dear maticdiba,

We're having a DataTable example with data from remote API.

Just open our DataTables page, and at the top of the page switch tab to the Examples & Customization.

Here's the link to that example: https://mdbootstrap.com/docs/angular/tables/datatables/#e-data-from-api

Best Regards,

Damian

I know about that example. But I'm not sure how to pass information about sort change to the api as well. In this example only results on the current page are sorted if I'm right.

But I would also like to send information about sort change to my api.

We need to add an output that will emit event from mdbTableSort directive. I added this task to our list but I can't provide an ETA for this feature yet.

So right now it's impossible to capture sort event? And use it as a parameter to the api call?

Unfortunately it's impossible. Sorting function is inside mdbTableSort directive and currently there is no event that will emit new array.
