Columns define what content is displayed in tree and list views in the browser subapp.

This column definition is part of the Magnolia 6 UI framework. The fully qualified class name is info.magnolia.ui.contentapp.configuration.column.ColumnDefinition.

If you work with the Magnolia 5 UI framework, see Column definition for Magnolia 5 UI instead.

Column properties

class

required (unless $type is used)

The column definition class reads the column configuration and displays the column accordingly. The class must implement the ColumnDefinition interface. You can write your own class or use one of the ready-made classes. See Column types for possible values.

$type

You can use this as a shortcut for class if the definition class is annotated with info.magnolia.ui.contentapp.configuration.column.ColumnType. The proper value is defined by the annotation.

Example class annotation
@ColumnType("dateColumn")
public class DateColumnDefinition extends ConfiguredColumnDefinition<Date> {
...
}

To use the $type property in YAML, see Example column definition.

type

requireddefault is java.lang.String

Model type of the column. Use the fully qualified class name. See PropertyType for possible values.

A default type is typically hard-coded in each definition class. You only need to add this property if you want to override the default implementation (for example, with java.lang.Long).

name

optional, default is parent node name

Name of the column.

descriptionGenerator

optional

Generates a description for the column.

editable

optionaldefault is false

Sets whether the column is editable inline. You can double-click a cell to edit its value.

(warning) You cannot define defaultAction and use inline editing at the same time.

editor

optional

Defines the inline editor component.

availability

required

Outlines when the column can be edited inline.

field

required, default is textField

Type of the field definition item. See Field types for possible values.

expandRatio

optional

Defines the ratio with which the column expands. By default, all columns expand equally.

filterComponent

optional

Adds a filter field to the column. In theory, all field types are supported. For properties, see field-specific and common field properties.

(warning) Currently, column filtering is not supported in REST-based elements of the UI.

label

optional

Text displayed in the column heading. The value can be literal or a key of a message bundle.

If you do not provide the property, Magnolia will fall back to a generated i18n key.

maximumWidth

optional

Defines the maximum allowed pixel width of the column when it is set to expand.

minimumWidth

optional

Defines the minimum guaranteed pixel width of the column when it is set to expand.

minimumWidthFromContent

optional, default is true

Sets whether the width of the content in the column is the minimum width of the column. When false, the column shrinks down to the width defined in minimumWidth if necessary.

renderer

optional, default is com.vaadin.ui.renderers.TextRenderer

Class extending Vaadin AbstractRenderer.

valueProvider

optional

Class extending Vaadin ValueProvider.

width

optional

Defines the width (in pixels). When set, overrides any configuration from expandRatio, maximumWidth and minimumWidth.
