DataTables#

Data tables display sets of data across rows and columns.

https://github.com/HeaTTheatR/KivyMD-data/raw/master/gallery/kivymddoc/data-tables-previous.png

Note

MDDataTable allows developers to sort the data provided by column. This happens thanks to the use of an external function that you can bind while you’re defining the table columns. Be aware that the sorting function must return a 2 value list in the format of:

[Index, Sorted_Row_Data]

This is because the index list is needed to allow MDDataTable to keep track of the selected rows. and, after the data is sorted, update the row checkboxes.

API - kivymd.uix.datatables.datatables#

class kivymd.uix.datatables.datatables.MDDataTable(**kwargs)#

See AnchorLayout class documentation for more information.

Events:
on_row_press

Called when a table row is clicked.

on_check_press

Called when the check box in the table row is checked.

Use events as follows

    # Sorting Methods:
    # since the https://github.com/kivymd/KivyMD/pull/914 request, the
    # sorting method requires you to sort out the indexes of each data value
    # for the support of selections.
    #
    # The most common method to do this is with the use of the builtin function
    # zip and enumerate, see the example below for more info.
    #
    # The result given by these funcitons must be a list in the format of
    # [Indexes, Sorted_Row_Data]

column_data is an ListProperty and defaults to [].

Note

The functions which will be called for sorting must accept a data argument and return the sorted data. Incoming data format will be similar to the provided row_data except that it’ll be all list instead of tuple like below. Any icon provided initially will also be there in this data so handle accordingly.

[
    [
        "1",
        ["icon", "No Signal"],
        "Astrid: NE shared managed",
        "Medium",
        "Triaged",
        "0:33",
        "Chase Nguyen",
    ],
    [
        "2",
        "Offline",
        "Cosmo: prod shared ares",
        "Huge",
        "Triaged",
        "0:39",
        "Brie Furman",
    ],
    [

        "Online",
        "Phoenix: prod shared lyra-lists",
        "Minor",

        "22:06",
        "Diane Okuma",
    ],
]

You must sort inner lists in ascending order and return the sorted data in the same format.

row_data#

Data for rows. To add icon in addition to a row data, include a tuple with This property stores the row data used to display each row in the DataTable To show an icon inside a column in a row, use the folowing format in the row’s columns.

Format:

(“MDicon-name”, [icon color in rgba], “Column Value”)
