ZingGrid has a predefined set of attribute values to display information about the grid state. <zg-text> is a self-contained web component so you can display the value anywhere in the grid.

<zg-text> is a ZingGrid specific text value that is bound to the status of the grid, as defined by the value attribute. The field can be manually inserted by a developer, but is more commonly added by the use of certain grid features, like paging. The element can inherently be styled through CSS variables or targeting the tag directly.

<zing-grid src="https://cdn.zinggrid.com/datasets/user-roles.json">
      <zg-text value="currpage"></zg-text>
      <zg-text value="pagecount"></zg-text>
      <zg-text value="pagecount"></zg-text>
      <zg-button action="prevpage"></zg-button>
      <zg-text value="currpage"></zg-text>
      <zg-button action="nextpage"></zg-button>


A custom, styled button that can be used both for internal grid-related action and for user-specific actions. It is stylable via CSS. Some buttons are automatically inserted when a feature that uses it enabled, like pager, while others <zg-button>(s) are inserted manually by the user.

Example Usage

  <zg-button disabled action="reload"></zg-button>
