Editing in Angular Pivot Table component

24 Jun 2022 / 13 minutes to read

This feature is applicable only for the relational data source.

Cell edit allows to add, delete, or update the raw items of any value cell from the pivot table. The raw items can be viewed in a data grid inside a new window on double-clicking the appropriate value cell. In the data grid, CRUD operations can be performed by double-clicking the cells or using toolbar options. Once user finishes editing raw items, aggregation will be performed for the updated values in pivot table component immediately. This support can be enabled by setting the allowEditing property in editSettings to true.

The CRUD operations available in the data grid toolbar and command column are:

Toolbar Button Actions
Add Add a new row.
Edit Edit the current row or cell.
Delete Delete the current row.
Update Update the edited row or cell.
Cancel Cancel the edited state.

The following are the supported edit types in the data grid:

  • Normal
  • Dialog
  • Batch
  • Command Columns

Normal

In normal edit mode, when user starts editing, the state of the currently selected row alone will be completely changed to edit state. User can change the cell values and save it to the data source by clicking “Update” toolbar button. To enable the normal edit, set the mode property in editSettings to Normal.

The normal edit mode Normal is set as the default mode for editing.

Dialog

In dialog edit mode, when user starts editing, the currently selected row data will be shown in an exclusive dialog. User can change cell values and save it to the data source by clicking “Save” button in the dialog. To enable the dialog edit, set the Mode property in editSettings to Dialog.

To enable the batch edit, set the mode property in editSettings to Batch. You can perform bulk save (added, changed, and deleted data in the single request) to the data source by clicking the toolbar’s Update button.

Editing using the pivot chart

Users can also add, delete, or update the underlying raw items of any data point via pivot chart. The raw items will be shown in the data grid in the new window by clicking the appropriate data point. Then you can edit the raw items as mentioned above by any of the edit types (normal, dialog, batch and command column).

Events

EditCompleted

The event editCompleted triggers when values cells are edited completely. The event provides edited cell(s) information along with its previous cell value. It also helps to do the CRUD operation by manually updating the database which is connected to the component. It has the following parameters.

  • currentData - It holds the current raw data of the edited cells.
  • previousData - It holds the previous raw data of the edited cells.
  • previousPosition - It holds the index of the raw data whose values are edited.
  • cancel - It is a boolean property and if it is set as true, the editing won’t be reflected in the pivot table.

ActionBegin

The event actionBegin triggers when the UI actions such as CRUD operations (via dialog) and inline editing begin. This allows user to identify the current action being performed at runtime. It has the following parameters:

  • dataSourceSettings: It holds the current data source settings such as input data source, rows, columns, values, filters, format settings and so on.
  • actionName: It holds the name of the current action began. The following are the UI actions and their names:
Action Action Name
Editing Edit record
Save Save edited records
Add Add new record
Delete Remove record
  • cancel: It allows user to restrict the current action.

In the below sample, editing actions such as add and save can be restricted by setting the args.cancel option to true in the actionBegin event.
