The SelectedAs type describes an object returned from calling a Select function so that the selected Cell Id can be optionally aliased.

{as: (selectedCellId: string): void}
asas(selectedCellId: string): void

A function that lets you specify an alias for the Cell Id.

If you are using a callback in the Select cause, it is highly recommended to use the 'as' function, since otherwise a machine-generated column name will be used.

Note that if two Select clauses are both aliased to the same name (or if two columns with the same underlying name are selected, both without aliases), only the latter of two will be used in the query.


This example shows a query that selects two Cells, one from a joined Table. Both are aliased with the 'as' function:

const store = createStore()
  .setTable('pets', {
    fido: {species: 'dog', ownerId: '1'},
    felix: {species: 'cat', ownerId: '2'},
    cujo: {species: 'dog', ownerId: '3'},
  .setTable('owners', {
    '1': {name: 'Alice'},
    '2': {name: 'Bob'},
    '3': {name: 'Carol'},

const queries = createQueries(store);
queries.setQueryDefinition('query', 'pets', ({select, join}) => {
  select('owners', 'name').as('ownerName');
  // from pets
  join('owners', 'ownerId');

queries.forEachResultRow('query', (rowId) => {
  console.log({[rowId]: queries.getResultRow('query', rowId)});
// -> {fido: {petSpecies: 'dog', ownerName: 'Alice'}}
// -> {felix: {petSpecies: 'cat', ownerName: 'Bob'}}
// -> {cujo: {petSpecies: 'dog', ownerName: 'Carol'}}
