useResultTable

The useResultTable hook returns an object containing the entire data of the result Table of the given query, and registers a listener so that any changes to that result will cause a re-render.

useResultTable(
  queryId: string,
  queriesOrQueriesId?: QueriesOrQueriesId,
): Table
TypeDescription
queryIdstring

The Id of the query.

queriesOrQueriesId?QueriesOrQueriesId

The Queries object to be accessed: omit for the default context Queries object, provide an Id for a named context Queries object, or provide an explicit reference.

returnsTable

An object containing the entire data of the result Table.

A Provider component is used to wrap part of an application in a context, and it can contain a default Queries object or a set of Queries objects named by Id. The useResultTable hook lets you indicate which Queries object to get data for: omit the final optional final parameter for the default context Queries object, provide an Id for a named context Queries object, or provide a Queries object explicitly by reference.

When first rendered, this hook will create a listener so that changes to the query result will cause a re-render. When the component containing this hook is unmounted, the listener will be automatically removed.

Examples

This example creates a Queries object outside the application, which is used in the useTable hook by reference. A change to the data in the query re-renders the component.

const store = createStore().setTable('pets', {
  fido: {species: 'dog', color: 'brown'},
  felix: {species: 'cat', color: 'black'},
  cujo: {species: 'dog', color: 'black'},
});
const queries = createQueries(store).setQueryDefinition(
  'dogColors',
  'pets',
  ({select, where}) => {
    select('color');
    where('species', 'dog');
  },
);
const App = () => (
  <span>{JSON.stringify(useResultTable('dogColors', queries))}</span>
);

const app = document.createElement('div');
ReactDOM.render(<App />, app);
console.log(app.innerHTML);
// -> '<span>{"fido":{"color":"brown"},"cujo":{"color":"black"}}</span>'

store.setCell('pets', 'fido', 'color', 'walnut');
console.log(app.innerHTML);
// -> '<span>{"fido":{"color":"walnut"},"cujo":{"color":"black"}}</span>'

This example creates a Provider context into which a default Queries object is provided. A component within it then uses the useResultTable hook.

const App = ({queries}) => (
  <Provider queries={queries}>
    <Pane />
  </Provider>
);
const Pane = () => (
  <span>{JSON.stringify(useResultTable('dogColors'))}</span>
);

const queries = createQueries(
  createStore().setTable('pets', {
    fido: {species: 'dog', color: 'brown'},
    felix: {species: 'cat', color: 'black'},
    cujo: {species: 'dog', color: 'black'},
  }),
).setQueryDefinition('dogColors', 'pets', ({select, where}) => {
  select('color');
  where('species', 'dog');
});
const app = document.createElement('div');
ReactDOM.render(<App queries={queries} />, app);
console.log(app.innerHTML);
// -> '<span>{"fido":{"color":"brown"},"cujo":{"color":"black"}}</span>'

This example creates a Provider context into which a Queries object is provided, named by Id. A component within it then uses the useResultTable hook.

const App = ({queries}) => (
  <Provider queriesById={{petQueries: queries}}>
    <Pane />
  </Provider>
);
const Pane = () => (
  <span>{JSON.stringify(useResultTable('dogColors', 'petQueries'))}</span>
);

const queries = createQueries(
  createStore().setTable('pets', {
    fido: {species: 'dog', color: 'brown'},
    felix: {species: 'cat', color: 'black'},
    cujo: {species: 'dog', color: 'black'},
  }),
).setQueryDefinition('dogColors', 'pets', ({select, where}) => {
  select('color');
  where('species', 'dog');
});
const app = document.createElement('div');
ReactDOM.render(<App queries={queries} />, app);
console.log(app.innerHTML);
// -> '<span>{"fido":{"color":"brown"},"cujo":{"color":"black"}}</span>'
