React Data GridTool Panel Component

Custom Tool Panel Components can be included into the grid's Side Bar. Implement these when you require more Tool Panels to meet your application requirements.

The example below provides a 'Custom Stats' Tool Panel to demonstrates how to create and register a Custom Tool Panel Component with the grid and include it the Side Bar:

Implementing a Tool Panel Component

To configure custom tool panels, first enable the grid option reactiveCustomComponents.

When a tool panel component is instantiated then the following will be made available on props:

Properties available on the CustomToolPanelProps<TData = any, TContext = any, TState = any> interface.

Enabling reactiveCustomComponents affects all custom components. If you have custom components built in an imperative way instead of setting the reactiveCustomComponents option, they may need to be rebuilt to take advantage of the new features that reactiveCustomComponents offers. Using custom components built in an imperative way is now deprecated, and in AG Grid v32 the reactiveCustomComponents option will be true by default. See Migrating to Use reactiveCustomComponents.

Registering Tool Panel Components

Registering a Tool Panel component follows the same approach as any other custom components in the grid. For more details see: Registering Custom Components.

Once the Tool Panel Component is registered with the grid it needs to be included into the Side Bar. The following snippet illustrates this:

    sideBar: {{
        toolPanels: [
                id: 'customStats',
                labelDefault: 'Custom Stats',
                labelKey: 'customStats',
                iconKey: 'custom-stats',
                toolPanel: CustomStatsToolPanel,
                toolPanelParams: {
                    // can pass any custom props here
       ...other props...
