Flexmonster usage in Angular

To show the most popular cases of using Flexmonster, our team prepared a sample Angular project on GitHub.

To download and run this project, see our guide: Run a sample Angular project from GitHub. Then choose one of the following examples:

Creating the pivot table

The first example demonstrates the basic usage of Flexmonster. In pivot-table-demo.component.html, notice how the toolbar and report initialization parameters are specified in Angular.

Flexmonster has more initialization parameters. Have a look at all of them.

Handling events

This usage example focuses on Flexmonster events. It provides a toggle button for subscribing to all the events and unsubscribing from them. See how handling the events is implemented in the handling-events.component.ts file.

When Flexmonster is subscribed to the events, the log output displays:

  • Which event was triggered.
  • When the event was triggered.
  • Details about that event.

See the full list of Flexmonster events in our documentation.

Using API calls

The Using API calls section is about customizing the component with API calls. Switch the toggle buttons to:

  • Show the column chart.
  • Show the grid.
  • Make the component read-only.
  • Make the component interactive.

All the functionality is implemented in using-api-calls.component.ts.

See the full list of Flexmonster API calls here.

Updating data

The Updating data section contains an example of updating data at runtime. The example uses the updateData() API call in the function to update the data. See the source code in the updating-data.component.ts file.

Customizing the Toolbar

The Customizing the Toolbar section provides an example of Toolbar customization.

We use the beforetoolbarcreated event to invoke the customizeToolbar() function. As a result, a custom tab with custom functionality is added.

The beforetoolbarcreated event is called in customizing-toolbar.component.html, and its handler can be found in the customizing-toolbar.component.ts file.

Learn more about customizing the Toolbar.

Customizing the grid

The Customizing the grid example demonstrates how the component can be customized.

Switch the toggle buttons to apply or remove customization. Custom grid styles are defined in the customizeCellFunction() method in the customizing-grid.component.ts file.

See our documentation to learn more about cell customization.

Integrating with Highcharts

See an example of integration with Highcharts in the With Highcharts section.

The main elements of this integration are:

  1. The Highcharts module and Flexmonster Connector for Highcharts.
  2. A container for Highcharts.
  3. The reportcomplete event; when it is triggered, the function to draw the chart is invoked.
  4. The drawChart() function, which you can find in the with-highcharts.component.ts file.

Integration with other charting libraries can be done in a similar way. Check out the integrations we provide.

Integrating with amCharts

In the With amCharts section, you can see a dashboard with Flexmonster and amCharts.

The key elements of this integration are:

  1. The amCharts module and Flexmonster Connector for amCharts.
  2. A container for amCharts.
  3. The reportcomplete event; when it is triggered, the function to draw the chart is invoked.
  4. The drawChart() function, which you can find in the with-amcharts.component.ts file.

Integration with other charting libraries can be done in a similar way. Check out the integrations we provide.
