Cell Content

Cell content with with regards how values are provided into the cells. There are different aspects of the grid that assist this.

The different parts of the grid concerned with cell values are as follows:

  • Value Getter: Instead of specifying colDef.field, you can use colDef.valueGetter to provide a function for getting cell values. This is more flexible than providing field values for specific cells.
  • Value Formatters: Use formatters to format values.
  • Expressions: Use strings instead of functions for value getters and formatters.
  • Reference Data: Reference data is used to display alternative values rather that what is in your data, eg you data could have USA but you want to display 'America'.

Rendering Flow

How value getters, formatters and cell renderers work together to provide the end result is helpful. The flow diagram below illustrates how these different steps work together.
