wire.data.DataEvent

Event providers create and raise new data events to let components and other consumers know about interactions users make on a page.
let event = new wire.data.DataEvent("myEvent");
...
event.raise();
Data events allow data, actions, and other context to be shared by providers with consumers. Use the methods on the DataEvent class to build and broadcast data events.

Methods

Name
Description
cell(column, value)
Adds the data for a particular cell from a source data table into the data event. This includes the column name of the table as well as the row value.
column(column)
Adds the source data table column object to the data event.
data(data)
Adds custom data into the data event. Note, this will overwrite any other data added to the data event.
dataselect
Sets the event name for the data event to dataselect.
element(id)
Specifies that the data event is to be dispatched at the specific DOM element target by id.
event(eventName)
Set the data event name to eventName.
getData
Gets the data for the event.
label(column, value)
Sets a descriptive label for the data event using column and value. Example: Product = SKU001.
raise
Broadcast the data event to consumers.
row
Adds the source data table row object to the data event.
source
For use with components, specifies the source object that created the event.
table
Adds the source data table to the data event.
The following example creates a new data event and adds some custom data to it.
let event = new wire.data.DataEvent("myEvent")
.data( { message: "Hello there" } );
event.raise();

Action Methods

Actions allow providers to tell consumers the intent of a data event. This intent is usually as it relates to changes to a query.
Name
Description
add
Event is intended to add new values to a field filter in a query. This is often the case for use with a multi-select drop down.
clear
Event is intended to clear all values for a field filter in a query.
remove
Event is intended to remove values from a field filter in query.
replace
Default action. Event is intended to replace the values currently in a field filer with the ones specified in the data event. This is often used with a single select drop down.
The following broadcasts a change to data made in a component bound to a data table that SKU001 in the product field was selected and based on the functionality of the component, this value should be replaced in all queries containing the product field.
let event = new wire.data.DataEvent()
.dataselect()
.cell("product", "SKU001")
.action().replace();
event.raise();
