In this example basic substitution template is created and the result is appended to a html table
The following screenshot is a preview of the final result. In this example records with age value less than 21 are not shown. In the particular example, there are three records into the data source, but only two are rendered as a result.
To complete the procedure you need the following:
templating engine. (For details, refer to Adding igTemplating References )
The following steps demonstrate how to create basic conditional template.
Add and apply the row template using IG Template Engine
Add sample data and row template to the page:
<body> <table id="resultTable" style="border: 1px solid #000;"></table> </body>
Apply the template and append the result to the html table
(Optional) Verify the result
Save the file and double click to preview the result. According to the applied check into the template only two rows should be rendered, as the third row has value into the age property lower than 21
The easiest way to create an igGrid with basic conditional template configured is via the Ignite UI CLI. To install the Ignite UI CLI:
npm install -g igniteui-cli
Once the Ignite UI CLI is installed the commands for generating an Ignite UI for jQuery project, adding a new igGrid component with basic conditional template, building and serving the project are as following:
ig new <project name> cd <project name> ig add grid-templating newGridTemplating ig start
This command will add a new igGrid with templating configured, same as the one demonstrated in our Conditional Templates sample.
For more information and the list of all available commands read the Using Ignite UI CLI topic.
