Usage

Initialize

Initializing includes 4 parts: Template, Vue Component, Options/Props and Theme. Below are a number of different ways to initialize JD-Tables depending on your needs.

SFC

The following is an example of how to use JD-Tables in a Vue SFC (single file component).

<template>
    <div id="app">
        <!-- JD-TABLE REQUIRED - TEMPLATE -->
        <JDTable
            :option                 = "tableOptions"
            :loader                 = "tableLoader"
            :event-from-app         = "eventFromApp"
            :event-from-app-trigger = "eventFromAppTrigger"
            @event-from-jd-table    = "processEventFromApp( $event )"
        />

        <!-- JD-TABLE REQUIRED - EXCEL EXPORT -->
        <iframe id="excelExportArea" style="display:none"></iframe>
    </div>
</template>

<script>
    // JD-TABLE REQUIRED - COMPONENT REGISTRATION
    import "@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/css/all.min.css";
    import JDTable from 'vue-jd-table';
    
    export default
    {
        name : 'MyApp',
        
        // JD-TABLE REQUIRED - COMPONENT REGISTRATION
        components:
        {
            JDTable
        },
        
        // JD-TABLE REQUIRED - OPTIONS/PROPS
        data ()
        {
            return {
                tableOptions        : { // ADD OPTIONS HERE },
                eventFromApp        : { name : null, data : null },
                eventFromAppTrigger : false,
                tableLoader         : false,
                columns             : [ // ADD COLUMNS HERE ]
            }
        }
    }
</script>

<style lang="scss">
    // JD-TABLE OPTIONAL - VARIABLE OVERRIDE

    // JD-TABLE REQUIRED - THEME
    @import "~vue-jd-table/dist/assets/jd-table.scss";
</style>
Global

The following registers JD-Table as a global component. Once registered, you can use the instructions above (SFC) to use and apply the component without having to import it each time.

import Vue     from 'vue';
import JDTable from 'vue-jd-table';

import "@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/css/all.min.css";
import 'vue-jd-table/dist/jd-table.min.css';

Vue.component( 'jdtable',JDTable );

new Vue
({
    ...
}).$mount( '#app' );
Script

The following shows an example of how to use JD-Table your HTML files directly. You will require a polyfill for JD-Table.

<!-- Polyfill -->
<script src="https://polyfill.io/v3/polyfill.js?features=es5,es6,es7&flags=gated"></script>

<!-- VueJS -->
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/vue/dist/vue.js"></script>

<!-- JD-Table Vue Component -->
<script src="vue-jd-table/dist/jd-table.min.js"></script>

<!-- JD-Table Styles -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="vue-jd-table/dist/jd-table.min.css">

<!-- Font Awesome (Free) -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.7.2/css/all.css" integrity="sha384-fnmOCqbTlWIlj8LyTjo7mOUStjsKC4pOpQbqyi7RrhN7udi9RwhKkMHpvLbHG9Sr" crossorigin="anonymous">

<div id="app">
    <JDTable
        :option                 = "tableOptions"
        :loader                 = "tableLoader"
        :event-from-app         = "eventFromApp"
        :event-from-app-trigger = "eventFromAppTrigger"
        @event-from-jd-table    = "processEventFromApp( $event )"
    />

    <iframe id="excelExportArea" style="display:none"></iframe>
</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
    new Vue
    ({
        el : '#app',
        
        components:
        {
            JDTable
        },
        
        data ()
        {
            return {
                tableOptions        : { // ADD OPTIONS HERE },
                eventFromApp        : { name : null, data : null },
                eventFromAppTrigger : false,
                tableLoader         : false,
                columns             : [ // ADD COLUMNS HERE ]
            }
        },
        
        ...
    });
</script>

Browser Support

JD-Table runs in all modern browsers. IE11 is supported so long as a polyfill is provided.

Polyfill

JD-Table is written with ES5/6 functionality. Take note that the build module for JDTable does not include a polyfill. If you need support for legacy browsers like IE 11 you will need to inject a polyfill service.

Reminder: Typically build processes like Webpack & Vue-CLI do NOT add polyfill's to your imported dependencies (it will polyfill your app but not the JDTable dependency).

Polyfill Solution #1

For build processes like Webpack/Vue-CLI, rather then importing the component normally, import the .VUE file directly. If your project already includes polyfill's it will be processed normally.

import JDTable from 'vue-jd-table/src/jd-table.vue';
Polyfill Solution #2

For Vue-CLI specifically, create/add the following to vue.config.js. This will tell Vue-CLI to polyfill the normally imported JD-Table module.

vue.config.js

module.exports =
{
    transpileDependencies : ['vue-jd-table']
};

Polyfill Solution #3

Using babel and babel-polyfill, directly add polyfill's to your dependency's.

babel.config.js

module.exports =
{
    presets:
    [
        ['env',
        {
            polyfills :
            [
                'es6.promise',
                'es6.object.assign',
                'es6.function.name',
                'es6.array.find',
                'es6.array.find-index',
                'es7.array.includes',
                'es6.string.includes'
            ]
        }]
    ]
}
