How to add a Table component

Follow this quick guide to add a Table component to your application using the DHIS2 UI Library.

Prerequisites#

This guide assumes that you're developing an application using the DHIS2 Application Platform and its tools. To know more or get started, please follow this tutorial: Environment Setup.

1. Import Table#

First, let's import the Table component as well as its child components:

import {
Table,
TableBody,
TableCell,
TableCellHead,
TableHead,
TableRow,
TableRowHead,
} from '@dhis2/ui'

2. Use components#

In this example, we are using the DHIS2 App Runtime to fetch and display the programs resource from the DHIS2 Web API (as you can see in the query object defined in the src/App.js file below).

See the highlighted lines of code - this is how we can represent the programs data in a Table component:

src/App.js
import { useDataQuery } from '@dhis2/app-runtime'
import React from 'react'
import classes from './App.module.css'
import {
Table,
TableBody,
TableCell,
TableCellHead,
TableHead,
TableRow,
TableRowHead,
} from '@dhis2/ui'
const query = {
results: {
resource: 'programs',
params: {
pageSize: 5,
fields: [
'id',
'created',
'displayName',
],
},
},
}
const MyApp = () => {
const { loading, error, data } = useDataQuery(query)
if (error) {
return <span>ERROR: {error.message}</span>
}
if (loading) {
return <span>Loading...</span>
}
return (
<div className={classes.container}>
<div>
<h1>Programs Table</h1>
<Table>
<TableHead>
<TableRowHead>
<TableCellHead>Name</TableCellHead>
<TableCellHead>Created</TableCellHead>
</TableRowHead>
</TableHead>
<TableBody>
{data.results.programs.map(
({ id, created, displayName }) => (
<TableRow key={id}>
<TableCell>{displayName}</TableCell>
<TableCell>{created}</TableCell>
</TableRow>
)
)}
</TableBody>
</Table>
</div>
</div>
)
}
export default MyApp

3. Check your browser#

In your browser, you should be able to see the following Table ๐Ÿ‘‡
