Search Box to limit Angular2 table

205 Views
Last Modified: 2017-11-18
Hello - I've tried a handful of different code samples, but can not figure out how to add a search box to an Angular 2 table.

Here is my app.component.html code

<!--The content below is only a placeholder and can be replaced.-->
<div style="text-align:center">
  <h1>
    Welcome to {{title}}!
  </h1>
  <img width="300" alt="Angular Logo" src="data:image/svg+xml;base64,PHN2ZyB4bWxucz0iaHR0cDovL3d3dy53My5vcmcvMjAwMC9zdmciIHZpZXdCb3g9IjAgMCAyNTAgMjUwIj4KICAgIDxwYXRoIGZpbGw9IiNERDAwMzEiIGQ9Ik0xMjUgMzBMMzEuOSA2My4ybDE0LjIgMTIzLjFMMTI1IDIzMGw3OC45LTQzLjcgMTQuMi0xMjMuMXoiIC8+CiAgICA8cGF0aCBmaWxsPSIjQzMwMDJGIiBkPSJNMTI1IDMwdjIyLjItLjFWMjMwbDc4LjktNDMuNyAxNC4yLTEyMy4xTDEyNSAzMHoiIC8+CiAgICA8cGF0aCAgZmlsbD0iI0ZGRkZGRiIgZD0iTTEyNSA1Mi4xTDY2LjggMTgyLjZoMjEuN2wxMS43LTI5LjJoNDkuNGwxMS43IDI5LjJIMTgzTDEyNSA1Mi4xem0xNyA4My4zaC0zNGwxNy00MC45IDE3IDQwLjl6IiAvPgogIDwvc3ZnPg==">
</div>
<div>
  <input [(ngModel)]="query">
  <div *ngFor="let user of users | search:'id':query">{{user.id}}</div>


<table class="table">
<ng-container *ngFor="let user of users">
      <tr>
        <th>First Name</th><td>{{user.firstName}}</td>
        <th>Last Name</th><td>{{user.lastName}}</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <th>Job</th><td>{{user.job}}</td>
        <th>ID</th><td>{{user.id}}</td>
      </tr>
    </ng-container>
</table>
</div>

Open in new window



and here is my app.component.ts code

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { Pipe, PipeTransform } from '@angular/core';


@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
})
export class AppComponent {
  title = 'hello';
  users = [
    {
        "firstName": "Clark",
        "lastName": "Kent",
        "job": "Reporter",
        "id": 20
    },
    {
        "firstName": "Bruce",
        "lastName": "Wayne",
        "job": "Business Owner",
        "id": 30
    },
    {
        "firstName": "Peter",
        "lastName": "Parker",
        "job": "Photographer",
        "id": 40
    },
    {
        "firstName": "Tony",
        "lastName": "Stark",
        "job": "Business Owner",
        "id": 25
    }
]
}

@Pipe({
  name: 'search'
})
export class SearchPipe implements PipeTransform {
  public transform(value, keys: string, term: string) {

    if (!term) return value;
    return (value || []).filter((user) => keys.split(',').some(key => user.hasOwnProperty(key) && new RegExp(term, 'gi').test(user[key])));

  }
}

Open in new window


Where am I going wring. Should the code for the pipe be in a separate file? It did not seem to fix things when I tried...but that's probably because the code is not right.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
