Attributes

JET Custom Elements

JET components are implemented as custom HTML elements. In addition to the component attributes documented in this page, JET components also support standard HTML global attributes like id and aria-label.

The JET data binding syntax can be used to define both component and global attributes through the use of dynamically evaluated expressions. All attributes (component and global) support attribute-level binding by prefixing the attribute name with ":" (e.g. :id="[...]"). When using attribute-level binding, all expression values are treated as strings. Additionally, component attributes support property-level binding by using the attribute name directly with no ":" prefix. When using property-level binding, the expressions should evaluate to the types documented by the corresponding attributes. Property-level binding is strongly recommended over attribute-level binding for component attributes.

A detailed description of working with custom HTML elements can be found in: JET Custom Element Usage.

JET RowExpander

Description: A JET RowExpander is primarily used inside the JET Table and JET DataGrid. It enables hierarchical data to be displayed in a JET Table and JET DataGrid.

To enable expand and collapse of rows, developers must specify oj.FlattenedTreeDataProviderView as data when used within JET Table and JET DataGrid.

<oj-row-expander
  context='{{$context}}'>
</oj-row-expander>

Touch End User Information

Target Gesture Action
Icon Tap Expand or collapse the row with the icon in it.

Keyboard End User Information

Target Key Action
Focused Row or Cell with RowExpander Ctrl + RightArrow Expand
Ctrl + LeftArrow Collapse
Icon Enter Expand or Collapse

Reading direction

The location of the RowExpander will be reversed in RTL reading direction.

In the unusual case that the directionality (LTR or RTL) changes post-init, the component containing the RowExpander (JET Table or JET DataGrid) must be refresh()ed.

Performance

Initial expansion

To specify initial expanded rows with RowExpander, it is recommended that applications do this through the initial options in oj.FlattenedTreeDataProvider, especially for expanding all rows initially.

Note: Application logic should not interact with the component's properties or invoke its methods until the BusyContext indicates that the component is ready for interaction.

Slots

JET components that allow child content support slots. Please see the slots section of the JET component overview doc for more information on allowed slot content and slot types.

contextMenu

The contextMenu slot is set on the oj-menu within this element. This is used to designate the JET Menu that this component should launch as a context menu on right-click, Shift-F10, Press & Hold, or component-specific gesture. If specified, the browser's native context menu will be replaced by the JET Menu specified in this slot.

The application can register a listener for the Menu's ojBeforeOpen event. The listener can cancel the launch via event.preventDefault(), or it can customize the menu contents by editing the menu DOM directly, and then calling refresh() on the Menu.

To help determine whether it's appropriate to cancel the launch or customize the menu, the ojBeforeOpen listener can use component API's to determine which table cell, chart item, etc., is the target of the context menu. See the JSDoc of the individual components for details.

Keep in mind that any such logic must work whether the context menu was launched via right-click, Shift-F10, Press & Hold, or component-specific touch gesture.

Attributes

(nullable) context :(ojRowExpander.Context<K, D>)

The context object obtained from the column renderer (Table) or cell renderer (DataGrid)
Default Value:
  • null
Names
Item Name
Property context
Property change event contextChanged
Property change listener attribute (must be of type function) on-context-changed

expanded :boolean|null

Specifies if the RowExpander is expanded. The default value is determined by the context obtained from the column renderer (Table) or cell renderer (DataGrid), or null if no context is specified. See performance for recommended usage regarding initial expansion state. This attribute is not supported for use with DataProvider.
Deprecated:
Since Description
7.0.0 The source of truth for expansion is the data source key set.
Default Value:
  • null
Supports writeback:
  • true
Names
Item Name
Property expanded
Property change event expandedChanged
Property change listener attribute (must be of type function) on-expanded-changed

translations :object|null

A collection of translated resources from the translation bundle, or null if this component has no resources. Resources may be accessed and overridden individually or collectively, as seen in the examples.

If the component does not contain any translatable resource, the default value of this attribute will be null. If not, an object containing all resources relevant to the component.

If this component has translations, their documentation immediately follows this doc entry.

Methods

getProperty(property) → {any}

Retrieves the value of a property or a subproperty. The return type will be the same as the type of the property as specified in this API document. If the method is invoked with an incorrect property/subproperty name, it returns undefined.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
property string The property name to get. Supports dot notation for subproperty access.
Since:
  • 4.0.0
Returns:
Type
any
Example

Get a single subproperty of a complex property:

let subpropValue = myComponent.getProperty('complexProperty.subProperty1.subProperty2');

refresh() → {void}

Redraw the RowExpander element.
Returns:
Type
void

setProperties(properties) → {void}

Performs a batch set of properties. The type of value for each property being set must match the type of the property as specified in this API document.
