Tool Panel Component

Custom Tool Panel Components can be included into the grids Side Bar. Implement these when you require more Tool Panels to meet your application requirements.

In this section we show the interfaces required to implement a custom Tool Panel Component along with details on how to register it with the grid. An example of a custom Tool Panel Component is also provided.

Tool Panel Interface

Implement this interface to provide a custom Tool Panel Components to the grids Side Bar.

interface IToolPanel { // The init(params) method is called on the tool panel once upon component initialisation. init(params: IToolPanelParams): void; // Returns the GUI for this Tool Panel and can be a string of html or a DOM element. getGui(): any; // Can be left blank if no custom refresh logic is required. refresh(): void; } interface IToolPanelParams { // The grid API api: any; }

Registering Tool Panel Components

Registering a Tool Panel component follows the same approach as any other custom components in the grid. For more details see: Registering Custom Components.

Once the Tool Panel Component is registered with the grid it needs to be included into the Side Bar. The following snippet illustrates this:

gridOptions: { sideBar: { toolPanels: [ { id: 'customStats', labelDefault: 'Custom Stats', labelKey: 'customStats', iconKey: 'custom-stats', component: 'customStatsToolPanel', } ] }, components: { customStatsToolPanel: CustomStatsComponent } // other grid properties }

For more details on the configuration properties above, refer to the Side Bar Configuration section.

Example - 'Custom Stats' Tool Panel Component

The example below provides a 'Custom Stats' Tool Panel to demonstrates how to create and register a Custom Tool Panel Component with the grid and include it the Side Bar:
