Toolbar

The Grid provides ToolBar support to handle grid actions. The toolbar property accepts either the collection of built-in toolbar items and ItemModel objects for custom toolbar items or HTML element ID for toolbar template.

To use Toolbar, you need to inject ToolbarService in the provider section of AppModule.

Built-in Toolbar Items

Built-in Toolbar Items execute standard actions of the Grid and it can be added by defining toolbar as a collection of built-in items. It renders the button with icon and text.

The following table shows Built-in toolbar items and its action.

  • The toolbar has options to define both built-in and custom toolbar items.

Custom Toolbar Items

Custom toolbar items can be added by defining toolbar as a collection of ItemModel. Actions for this customized toolbar items are defined in the toolbarClick event.

By default, Custom toolbar items are in position Left. You can change the position by using the align property. In the below sample, we have applied position Right for the Collapse All toolbar item.
