DataViewComponent Class

Implements React integration for DataView control

See examples:

Type parameters

  • S

  • SS

  • S




context: any

If using the new style context, re-declare this in your class to be the React.ContextType of your static contextType. Should be used with type annotation or static contextType.

static contextType = MyContext
// For TS pre-3.7:
context!: React.ContextType<typeof MyContext>
// For TS 3.7 and above:
declare context: React.ContextType<typeof MyContext>

Static Optional contextType

contextType: Context<any>

If set, this.context will be set at runtime to the current value of the given Context.


type MyContext = number
const Ctx = React.createContext<MyContext>(0)

class Foo extends React.Component {
  static contextType = Ctx
  context!: React.ContextType<typeof Ctx>
  render () {
    return <>My context's value: {this.context}</>;

Static getControlByElement

getControlByElement: getControlByElement = getControlByElement

Gets the instance of DataView which is hosted to the specified node


an HTML element which is used to host the DataView instance


a DataView instance


Optional UNSAFE_componentWillMount

  • UNSAFE_componentWillMount(): void

Optional UNSAFE_componentWillReceiveProps

  • UNSAFE_componentWillReceiveProps(nextProps: Readonly<IDataViewProps>, nextContext: any): void

Optional UNSAFE_componentWillUpdate

  • UNSAFE_componentWillUpdate(nextProps: Readonly<IDataViewProps>, nextState: Readonly<S>, nextContext: any): void

Optional componentDidCatch

  • componentDidCatch(error: Error, errorInfo: ErrorInfo): void
  • Catches exceptions generated in descendant components. Unhandled exceptions will cause the entire component tree to unmount.


    • error: Error
    • errorInfo: ErrorInfo

    Returns void

Optional componentWillMount

  • componentWillMount(): void

Optional componentWillReceiveProps

  • componentWillReceiveProps(nextProps: Readonly<IDataViewProps>, nextContext: any): void

Optional componentWillUpdate

  • componentWillUpdate(nextProps: Readonly<IDataViewProps>, nextState: Readonly<S>, nextContext: any): void

Optional getSnapshotBeforeUpdate

  • getSnapshotBeforeUpdate(prevProps: Readonly<IDataViewProps>, prevState: Readonly<S>): SS | null
  • Runs before React applies the result of render to the document, and returns an object to be given to componentDidUpdate. Useful for saving things such as scroll position before render causes changes to it.

    Note: the presence of getSnapshotBeforeUpdate prevents any of the deprecated lifecycle events from running.


    Returns SS | null

Optional shouldComponentUpdate

  • shouldComponentUpdate(nextProps: Readonly<IDataViewProps>, nextState: Readonly<S>, nextContext: any): boolean
  • Called to determine whether the change in props and state should trigger a re-render.

    Component always returns true. PureComponent implements a shallow comparison on props and state and returns true if any props or states have changed.

    If false is returned, Component#render, componentWillUpdate and componentDidUpdate will not be called.


    • nextProps: Readonly<IDataViewProps>
    • nextState: Readonly<S>
    • nextContext: any

    Returns boolean
