Widget “CollectionView”

Extends Widget

A scrollable list that displays data items in cells, one per row. Cells are created on demand by the createCell callback and reused on scrolling.

You can import this type like this:

import {CollectionView} from 'tabris';

Or reference it directly form anywhere as “tabris.CollectionView”. Android | iOS — | — CollectionView on Android | CollectionView on iOS

Methods

insert(index, count)

Parameters:

  • index: number
  • count: number [Optional]
    • the position to insert the items at. A negative index is interpreted as relative to the end. If the given index is greater than the item count, new items will be appended at the end.

Inserts one or more items at the given index. When no count is specified, a single item will be added at the given index. New cells may be created if needed. The updateCell callback will only be called for those new items that become immediately visible. Note that inserting new items changes the index of all subsequent items. This operation will update the itemCount property.

load(itemCount)

Parameters:

  • itemCount: number
    • the number of items in the model to load.

Loads a new model with the given itemCount. This operation will update the itemCount property.

refresh(index)

Parameters:

  • index: number [Optional]
    • the index of the item that was changed.

Triggers an update of the item at the given index by calling the updateCell callback of the corresponding. If no index is given, all visible items will be updated.

remove(index, count)

Parameters:

  • index: number
    • the index of the first item to remove. A negative value is interpreted as relative to the end.
  • count: number [Optional]
    • the number of items to remove.

Removes one or more items beginning with the given index. When no count is given, only the item at index will be removed. Note that this changes the index of all subsequent items, however. This operation will update the itemCount property.

reveal(index)

Parameters:

  • index: number
    • the index of the item to reveal. If this is negative, it is interpreted as relative to the end

Scrolls the item with the given index into view.

Properties

cellHeight

Type: number|“auto”|((index: number, cellType: string) => number|“auto”), default: auto

The height of a collection cell. If set to "auto", the cell height will be calculated individually for each cell. If set to a function, this function will be called for every item, providing the item index and the cell type as parameters, and must return the cell height for the given item.

cellType

Type: string|((index: number) => string)|null

The name of the cell type to use for the item at the given index. This name will be passed to the createCell and cellHeight callbacks. Cells will be reused only for those items that map to the same cell type. If set to a function, this function will be called for every item, providing the item index as a parameter, and must return a unique name for the cell type to use for the given item.

columnCount

Type: number, default: 1

The number of columns to display in the collection view. If set to a value n > 1, each row will contain n items. The available space will be equally distributed between columns.

createCell

Type: (cellType: string) => Widget

A callback used to create a new reusable cell widget for a given type. This callback will be called by the framework and the created cell will be reused for different items. The created widget should be populated in the updateCell function.

firstVisibleIndex

read-only
Type: number

The index of the first item that is currently visible on screen.

itemCount

Type: number

The number of items to display. To add or remove items later, use the methods insert() and remove() instead of setting the itemCount. To display a new list of items, use the load() method.

lastVisibleIndex

read-only
Type: number

The index of the last item that is currently visible on screen.

refreshEnabled

Type: boolean, default: false

Enables the user to trigger a refresh by using the pull-to-refresh gesture.

refreshIndicator

Type: boolean, default: false

Whether the refresh indicator is currently visible. Will be set to true when a refresh event is triggered. Reset it to false when the refresh is finished.

refreshMessage

< span class = 'ios-tag' title = 'supported on iOS' > iOS < /span>

Type: string, default: ""

The message text displayed together with the refresh indicator. Currently not supported on Android.

updateCell

Type: (cell: Widget, index: number) => void

A callback used to update a given cell widget to display the item with the given index. This callback will be called by the framework.
