Data Table in salesforce lwc

  • Displaying and formatting of columns with appropriate data types
  • Infinite scrolling of rows
  • Inline editing for some data types
  • Header-level actions
  • Row-level actions
  • Resizing of columns
  • Selecting rows
  • Sorting of columns by ascending and descending order
  • Text wrapping and clipping
  • Row numbering column
  • Cell content alignment

Tables can be populated during initialization using the data, columns, and key-field attributes. The key-field attribute is required for correct table behavior. It associates each row with a unique identifier. The data table formats the data cells of a column based on the type you specify for the column. Each data type is associated with a base Lightning web component. For example, specifying the text type renders the associated data using a lightning-formatted-text component. Some of these types allow you to pass in the attributes via the type Attributes attribute to customize your output. The data table supports dates in the format of a timestamp, a date object, or an ISO8601 formatted string. These date formats can be displayed differently in a column. The default format is September 26, 2018, which corresponds to type: "date" or type: "date-local" and an empty type attributes property.
