How to Show/Hide Column Header in Grid Component

Showing or hiding the column header is very easy in IntegralUI Grid component. There is a property called showHeader that determines whether the grid header is visible or not. By default, this property is set to true, which means that the header is visible.

By changing this property value to false in HTML declaration of the Grid component, the header will disappear:

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.

How to Hide Grid Footer

In similar way as above, there is a property called showFooter that determines whether the grid footer is visible or not. By default, this property is also set to true, which means that the footer is visible.

When both of these properties are set to false, and if you set the gridLines property to None, the Grid will appear like a List. Because the ListBox component only shows data in single column, the Grid may be better of use here to show data in multiple columns without using a header or footer. It will allow you to easily present data in more uniform way.


Setting the visibility of column header and footer in IntegralUI Grid component for JavaScript, Angular, React and Vue is straightforward. You only need to change the values of two properties and you can have a grid without header, footer or both.

IntegralUI Web is a suite of native web components that includes the Grid. You can use it to develop web apps in Angular, React, Vue or any other JavaScript framework.
