The useSortedRowIdsListener hook registers a listener function with a Store that will be called whenever sorted (and optionally, paginated) Row Ids in a Table change.

  tableId: string,
  cellId: undefined | string,
  descending: boolean,
  offset: number,
  limit: undefined | number,
  listener: SortedRowIdsListener,
  listenerDeps?: DependencyList,
  mutator?: boolean,
  storeOrStoreId?: StoreOrStoreId,
): void

The Id of the Table in the Store.

cellIdundefined | string

The Id of the Cell whose values are used for the sorting, or undefined to by sort the Row Id itself.


Whether the sorting should be in descending order.


The number of Row Ids to skip for pagination purposes, if any.

limitundefined | number

The maximum number of Row Ids to return, or undefined for all.


The function that will be called whenever the sorted Row Ids in the Table change.


An optional array of dependencies for the listener function, which, if any change, result in the re-registration of the listener. This parameter defaults to an empty array.


An optional boolean that indicates that the listener mutates Store data.


The Store to register the listener with: omit for the default context Store, provide an Id for a named context Store, or provide an explicit reference.


This has no return value.

This hook is useful for situations where a component needs to register its own specific listener to do more than simply tracking the value (which is more easily done with the useSortedRowIds hook).

Unlike the addSortedRowIdsListener method, which returns a listener Id and requires you to remove it manually, the useSortedRowIdsListener hook manages this lifecycle for you: when the listener changes (per its listenerDeps dependencies) or the component unmounts, the listener on the underlying Store will be deleted.


This example uses the useSortedRowIdsListener hook to create a listener that is scoped to a single component. When the component is unmounted, the listener is removed from the Store.

import {Provider, useSortedRowIdsListener} from 'tinybase/ui-react';
import React from 'react';
import {createRoot} from 'react-dom/client';
import {createStore} from 'tinybase';

const App = ({store}) => (
  <Provider store={store}>
    <Pane />
const Pane = () => {
  useSortedRowIdsListener('pets', 'species', false, 0, undefined, () =>
    console.log('Sorted Row Ids changed'),
  return <span>App</span>;

const store = createStore().setTables({
  pets: {
    fido: {species: 'dog'},
    felix: {species: 'cat'},
const app = document.createElement('div');
const root = createRoot(app);
root.render(<App store={store} />);
// -> 1

store.setRow('pets', 'cujo', {species: 'wolf'});
// -> 'Sorted Row Ids changed'

// -> 0
