Attributes


JET WaterfallLayout

Description: The JET WaterfallLayout displays data as cards in a grid layout based on columns. Cards inside WaterfallLayout usually don't have a fixed height but the width of each columns are the same.

 //WaterfallLayout with a DataProvider
 <oj-waterfall-layout data="[[dataProvider]]">
 </oj-waterfall-layout>

DataProvider

WaterfallLayout can work with any non-hierarchical DataProvider as long as the data type for its key is of type string or number.

An error will be logged and no data will be rendered if the data type for key is not one of the above types. This requirement enables WaterfallLayout to optimize rendering in all scenarios.

Accessibility

Touch End User Information

Target Gesture Action
Card Tap Focus on the item.

Keyboard End User Information

Target Key Action
Card LeftArrow Move focus to the previous item according to the data order.
RightArrow Move focus to the next item according to the data order.
F2 Enters Actionable mode. This enables keyboard action on elements inside the item, including navigate between focusable elements inside the item.
Esc Exits Actionable mode.
Tab When in Actionable Mode, navigates to next focusable element within the item. If the last focusable element is reached, shift focus back to the first focusable element. When not in Actionable Mode, navigates to next focusable element on the page (outside of the component).
Shift+Tab When in Actionable Mode, navigates to previous focusable element within the item. If the first focusable element is reached, shift focus back to the last focusable element. When not in Actionable Mode, navigates to previous focusable element on the page (outside of the component).

Slots

JET components that allow child content support slots. Please see the slots section of the JET component overview doc for more information on allowed slot content and slot types.

itemTemplate

The itemTemplate slot is used to specify the template for rendering each item in the WaterfallLayout. The slot content must be a <template> element.

The content inside the template must have a single Element as the root node. It cannot have multiple root nodes, incluidng Text and Comment nodes. The root node also cannot be a JET Binding Element, you must wrap it with an Element node. If the content do contain multiple nodes, WaterfallLayout will take the first Element node it encountered and ignore the rest.

When the template is executed for each item, it will have access to the binding context containing the following properties:

Properties of $current:
Name Type Description
data D The data for the current item being rendered
index number The zero-based index of the current item during initial rendering. Note the index is not updated in response to item additions and removals.
key K The key of the current item being rendered

Attributes

data :(DataProvider.<K, D>|null)

The data for WaterfallLayout. Must be of type DataProvider. Please refer to the DataProvider section for key data type requirement.
Default Value:
  • null
Names
Item Name
Property data
Property change event dataChanged
Property change listener attribute (must be of type function, see Events and Listeners for additional information.) on-data-changed

scroll-policy :"loadAll"|"loadMoreOnScroll"

Specifies the mechanism used to scroll the data inside the WaterfallLayout. Possible values are: "loadMoreOnScroll", and "loadAll". When "loadMoreOnScroll" is specified, additional data is fetched when the user scrolls to the bottom of the WaterfallLayout. Note that the component must have a height specified or inside a height constraint element so that the component element is scrollable. When "loadAll" is specified, WaterfallLayout will fetch all the data when it is initially rendered.
Supported Values:
Value Description
loadAll Fetch and render all data.
loadMoreOnScroll Additional data is fetched when the user scrolls towards the bottom of the grid.
Default Value:
  • "loadMoreOnScroll"
Names
Item Name
Property scrollPolicy
Property change event scrollPolicyChanged
Property change listener attribute (must be of type function, see Events and Listeners for additional information.) on-scroll-policy-changed

scroll-policy-options :Object.<string, any>

The following options are supported:

  • fetchSize: The number of items fetched each time when scroll to the end.
  • maxCount: Maximum rows which will be displayed before fetching more rows will be stopped.
  • scroller: The element or a CSS selector string to an element which WaterfallLayout uses to determine the scroll position as well as the maximum scroll position where scroll to the end will trigger a fetch. If not specified then the oj-waterfall-layout element is used.
When scrollPolicy is loadMoreOnScroll, the next block of rows is fetched when the user scrolls to the end of the component. The fetchSize option determines how many rows are fetched in each block.

scroll-policy-options.fetch-size :number

The number of items to fetch in each block.
Default Value:
  • 25
Names

Property scrollPolicyOptions.fetchSize

scroll-policy-options.max-count :number

The maximum total number of items to fetch.
Default Value:
  • 500

Property scrollPolicyOptions.maxCount

scroll-policy-options.scroller :Element | keyof HTMLElementTagNameMap|keyof SVGElementTagNameMap|string | null

The element or a CSS selector string to an element which WaterfallLayout uses to determine the scroll position as well as the maximum scroll position.
Default Value:
  • null
Names
Item Name
Property scrollPolicyOptions.scroller

scroll-position :Object.<string, any>

The current scroll position of WaterfallLayout. The scroll position is updated when the vertical scroll position (or its scroller, as specified in scrollPolicyOptions.scroller) has changed. The value contains the y scroll position, the key of the item closest to the top of the viewport, as well as vertical offset from the position of the item to the actual scroll position.

The default value contains just the scroll position. Once data is fetched the 'key' and 'offsetY' sub-properties will be added. If there is no data then the 'key' sub-properties will not be available.

When setting the scrollPosition property, applications can change any combination of the sub-properties. If both key and y sub-properties are set at once then key will take precedent. If offsetY is specified, it will be used to adjust the scroll position from the position where the key of the item is located.

If a sparse object is set the other sub-properties will be populated and updated once WaterfallLayout has scrolled to that position.

Also, if scrollPolicy is set to 'loadMoreOnScroll' and the scrollPosition is set to a value outside of the currently rendered region, then the value of scrollPosition will be ignored.

Lastly, when a re-rendered is triggered by a refresh event from the DataProvider, or if the value for data attribute has changed, then the scrollPosition will by default remain at the top.

Supports writeback:
  • true
