DT (version 0.26)

dataTableOutput: Helper functions for using DT in Shiny

Description

These two functions are like most fooOutput() and renderFoo() functions in the shiny package. The former is used to create a container for table, and the latter is used in the server logic to render the table.

Usage

dataTableOutput(outputId, width = "100%", height = "auto")

DTOutput(outputId, width = "100%", height = "auto")

renderDataTable( expr, server = TRUE, env = parent.frame(), quoted = FALSE, funcFilter = dataTablesFilter, future = FALSE, ... )

renderDT( expr, server = TRUE, env = parent.frame(), quoted = FALSE, funcFilter = dataTablesFilter, future = FALSE, ... )

Arguments

outputId

output variable to read the table from

width

the width of the table container

height

the height of the table container

expr

an expression to create a table widget (normally via datatable()), or a data object to be passed to datatable() to create a table widget

server

whether to use server-side processing. If TRUE, then the data is kept on the server and the browser requests a page at a time; if FALSE, then the entire data frame is sent to the browser at once. Highly recommended for medium to large data frames, which can cause browsers to slow down or crash. Note that if you want to use renderDataTable with shiny::bindCache(), this must be FALSE.

env

The parent environment for the reactive expression. By default, this is the calling environment, the same as when defining an ordinary non-reactive expression. If expr is a quosure and quoted is TRUE, then env is ignored.

quoted

If it is TRUE, then the quote()ed value of expr will be used when expr is evaluated. If expr is a quosure and you would like to use its expression as a value for expr, then you must set quoted to TRUE.

funcFilter

(for expert use only) passed to the filter argument of dataTableAjax()

future

whether the server-side filter function should be executed as a future or as a standard synchronous function. If true, the future will be evaluated according to the session's plan.

...

ignored when expr returns a table widget, and passed as additional arguments to datatable() when expr returns a data object

Examples

Run this code
if (interactive()) {
  library(shiny)
  library(DT)
  shinyApp(
    ui = fluidPage(fluidRow(column(12, DTOutput('tbl')))),
    server = function(input, output) {
      output$tbl = renderDT(
        iris, options = list(lengthChange = FALSE)
      )
    }
  )
}
