Add Json Table Widget

  • Accepts Map as input. Just decode your json array string and pass it in JsonTable. No casting to model required.
  • Option for creating column header builder. This basically returns a widget to show as table column header
tableHeaderBuilder: (String header) {
    return Container(
      padding: EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 8.0, vertical: 4.0),
      decoration: BoxDecoration(border: Border.all(width: 0.5),color: Colors.grey[300]),
      child: Text(
        header,
        textAlign: TextAlign.center,
        style: Theme.of(context).textTheme.display1.copyWith(fontWeight: FontWeight.w700, fontSize: 14.0,color: Colors.black87),
      ),
    );
  }
  • Option for creating table cell builder
tableCellBuilder: (value) {
    return Container(
      padding: EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 4.0, vertical: 2.0),
      decoration: BoxDecoration(border: Border.all(width: 0.5, color: Colors.grey.withOpacity(0.5))),
      child: Text(
        value,
        textAlign: TextAlign.center,
        style: Theme.of(context).textTheme.display1.copyWith(fontSize: 14.0, color: Colors.grey[900]),
      ),
    );
  }
  • Option for toggling column(s) also. User can customise which columns are to be shown
 showColumnToggle: true
JsonTable

- Vanilla Implementation

//Decode your json string
final String jsonSample='[{"id":1},{"id":2}]';
var json = jsonDecode(jsonSample);

//Simply pass this json to JsonTable
child: JsonTable(json)

- Implementation with HEADER and CELL widget builders

JsonTable(
   json,
   tableHeaderBuilder: (String header) {
     return Container(
       padding: EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 8.0, vertical: 4.0),
       decoration: BoxDecoration(border: Border.all(width: 0.5),color: Colors.grey[300]),
       child: Text(
         header,
         textAlign: TextAlign.center,
         style: Theme.of(context).textTheme.display1.copyWith(fontWeight: FontWeight.w700, fontSize: 14.0,color: Colors.black87),
       ),
     );
   },
   tableCellBuilder: (value) {
     return Container(
       padding: EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 4.0, vertical: 2.0),
       decoration: BoxDecoration(border: Border.all(width: 0.5, color: Colors.grey.withOpacity(0.5))),
       child: Text(
         value,
         textAlign: TextAlign.center,
         style: Theme.of(context).textTheme.display1.copyWith(fontSize: 14.0, color: Colors.grey[900]),
       ),
     );
   },
 )

- Implementation with custom COLUMNS list

  • Pass custom column list to control what columns are displayed in table
  • The list item must be constructed using JsonTableColumn class
  • JsonTableColumn provides 4 parameters, namely,
JsonTableColumn("age", label: "Eligible to Vote", valueBuilder: eligibleToVote, defaultValue:"NA")
  • First parameter is the field/key to pick from the data
  • label: The column header label to be displayed
  • defaultValue: To be used when data or key is null
  • valueBuilder: To get the formatted value like date etc
JsonTable
//Decode your json string
final String jsonSample='[{"id":1},{"id":2}]';
var json = jsonDecode(jsonSample);
//Create your column list
var columns = [
      JsonTableColumn("name", label: "Name"),
      JsonTableColumn("age", label: "Age"),
      JsonTableColumn("DOB", label: "Date of Birth", valueBuilder: formatDOB),
      JsonTableColumn("age", label: "Eligible to Vote", valueBuilder: eligibleToVote),
      JsonTableColumn("email", label: "E-mail", defaultValue: "NA"),
    ];
//Simply pass this column list to JsonTable
child: JsonTable(json,columns: columns)

//Example of valueBuilder
String eligibleToVote(value) {
    if (value >= 18) {
      return "Yes";
    } else
      return "No";
}

Key Highlights

  • The table constructed isn't the flutter's native DataTable.
  • The table is manually coded hence serves a great learning purpose on how to create simple tables manually in flutter
  • Supports vertical & horizontal scroll
  • Supports custom columns includes default value, column name, value builder

TODO

  • X Custom header list parameter. This will help to show only those keys as mentioned in header list
  • X Add support for keys missing in json object
  • X Add support for auto formatting of date
  • X Extracting column headers logic must be change. Not to depend on first object
  • Pagination support etc. Its good if this table can be replaced with Flutter's native DataTable
  • Add option to change header row to vertical row on left
