Grouping

Grouping rows by a common value

The client component supports simple grouping of rows by a common value. By simple we mean that the grouping is merely presentational, and not backed by a real model-level data grouping (i.e the data is NOT divided into distinct arrays). you can group by any property on your dataset. For example, for a table of countries you can group by a `continent` property. Simply declare in your options groupBy:'continent'.

If you want to present some additional meta-data realted to each value, you can use the `groupMeta` option, along with the dedicated __group_meta scoped slot. For example:

{
groupBy:'continent',
groupMeta:[
{
value:'Africa',
data:{
population:1216,
countries:54
}
},
{
value:'Asia',
data:{
population:4436
countries:48
}
},
{
value:'Europe',
data:{
population:741.4,
countries:50
}
}
// etc...
]
}
<span slot="__group_meta" slot-scope="{ value, data }">
{value} has {data.countries} countries and a population of {data.population} million
</span>

Multiple Level Grouping

‚ÄčSubscribers have access to data-level nested grouping. Simply pass an array to groupBy, e.g groupBy: ['country','city'] and you're good to go. The filteredData computed property will reflect the nested presentation.

use the VueTables__group-row--{level}`classes to apply background and padding to group rows
