IDL List View


This component requires access to a package of Integrated Data Lake (IDL) - see for example the IDL Essential .
Furthermore the related roles have to be assigned to the application when this component is used.

The Integrated Data Lake (IDL) List View displays a list of objects/folders for given or default bucket storage path. This view component provides feature like download objects and copy path. Note that download object is available for objects only, not for folders.

By default the root storage path i.e. '/' will be taken to display object/folders on first load.

When clicking on a download object, a downloadObjectClicked event is triggered, which can be used for further actions.

Default view to display objects/folders for root storage path

<mdsp-idl-list-view [storage-path]="'/'"></mdsp-idl-list-view>
const idlListViewComp = document.querySelector('mdsp-idl-list-view');
idlListViewComp.storagePath = '/test';

Use advance configuration

The following sample configuration to display pager mode, empty state and passing subtenant id. See Properties table for more details.

<mdsp-idl-list-view #mdspIdlViewComponent

Listening to Events

The following sample configuration for how to listner to events sent by web component. See Events table for more details.

<mdsp-idl-list-view #mdspIdlViewComponent

Use Simple Paging

By default a pagination component will be shown if records are more than 100.

<mdsp-idl-list-view [storage-path]="'/'"></mdsp-idl-list-view>

Simple paging

Refresh the IDL list view

The data model of the IDL list view can be refreshed to get the latest objects/folders, for example to update the view cyclically.

Example: Assign unique id to component selector as shown below
<mdsp-idl-list-view #mdspIdlViewComponent
Add following code in typescript:

@ViewChild('mdspIdlViewComponent', {static: false })
public idlViewComponent!: ElementRef;

Show/Hide empty state area

Default value for show-empty-state is 'true'. In this case the component will show default empty state as below.

<mdsp-idl-list-view [storage-path]="'/'"></mdsp-idl-list-view>

This property if set to 'false', default empty state box (No record found section) will be hide. A consumer application can add their own logic to implement.

<mdsp-idl-list-view [storage-path]="'/'" show-empty-state="false"></mdsp-idl-list-view>
