In this example, using the control panel on right side you can select a column and choose the alignment of its header, content and footer. Whenever a new alignment is selected, the grid view is updated. Some of these columns don't have anything in their footer, to see how it works for column footer, use the last two columns.

How to Align Content of Grid Columns

The alignment of grid columns is determined by following fields in column object:

  • contentAlignment - specifies the side at which content of column cells is aligned
  • footerAlignment- specifies the side at which content of column footer is aligned
  • headerAlignment- specifies the side at which content of column header is aligned

All of these fields accepts one of these string values: 'left', 'center' or 'right', based on which the content is aligned to left, center or right side accordingly.

Here is an example on you can set this in code:

Currently ReactJS doesn't have full support for Web Components. Mainly because of the way data is passed to the component via attributes and their own synthetic event system. For this reason, you can use available wrappers located under /integralui/wrappers directory, which are ReactJS components that provide all public API from specific IntegralUI component.

Having different alignment for columns is useful in cases when you have different type of values. Usually strings in columns are aligned on left side, decimal numbers on right side, integer numbers or dates are centered etc.
