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.

This component has two types of view modes: 'Table' and 'List'. See details below.

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';

1. Table View:

View mode can be selected by using viewMode property. The default value for viewMode is Table. Pagination is enabled by default and will be visible if page more than 1.

<mdsp-idl-list-view #mdspIdlViewComponent
Simple paging

2. List View:

To select list view mode, viewMode property should be set to 'List'.

Basic configuration

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

Advanced configuration

Additional properties like selectable, folder-only can be set/configured. * Setting selectable property value as 'true' will enable checkbox. Default value is false. * Setting folder-only property value as 'true' will display only folders in list view. Default value is false.

<mdsp-idl-list-view #mdspIdlViewComponent show-empty-state="false" [path]="'/'"
                    selectable="true" view-mode="List" folder-only="true"

Search Filter

By default, Search filter is enabled in List mode. To hide search filter, set search-hidden to true.


Set object path using property

Use selected-object-path prperty to set paht adn redirect to it directly.

document.querySelector('mdsp-idl-list-view').selectedObjectPath = 'data/ten=punvs1/CustomerData/CustDemogAndalucia.csv';


Listening to Events

The following sample configuration for how to listen 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>
