Selectable list module

API

Name Default value Description
@Input() items: any[]; null Array of objects or flat array of strings (see label) to fill the selectable list.
@Input() index 0 The index of the active item in the list (note that the selectable list is not responsible for toggling through the list).
@Input() search: string; '' String to highlight in all selectable list items.
@Input() label: string; '' The selector when data is an array of objects (see items).
@Input() itemTemplate: TemplateRef<any>; - Pass in a template to give the list items of the selectable list a custom look.
@Output() selected: EventEmitter<any>; - Emits an event when the user has selected an item in the selectable list. The parameter of the function is the selected item.

Example

import { SelectableListModule } from '@acpaas-ui/ngx-selectable-list';

@NgModule({
    imports: [
        SelectableListModule
    ]
});

export class AppModule {};`

public index = 0;

public heroes = [ { name: 'Spiderman' }, { name: 'Wolverine' }, { name: 'Iron man' } ];

public activeHero = this.heroes[this.index];

public onSelect(item) { this.index = this.heroes.findIndex(hero => hero.name === item.name); this.activeHero = item; }


```html
<h4>Select your hero</h4>
<aui-selectable-list [items]="heroes" [index]="index" (selected)="onSelect($event)">
   <ng-template let-item="item">
       Template for: <strong>{{ item.name }}</strong>
   </ng-template>
</aui-selectable-list>
<p><strong>Active hero</strong>: {{ activeHero.name }}</p>

auiSelectableActions directive

API

Bind this directive to a focusable element.

Name Default value Description
@Output() keyArrowUp: EventEmitter<any>; - Callback for the arrow up key
@Output() keyArrowDown: EventEmitter<any>; - Callback for the arrow down key
@Output() keyEnter: EventEmitter<any>; - Callback for the enter key
@Output() keyEscape: EventEmitter<any>; - Callback for the escape key

Example

In the following example we bind the auiSelectableActions directive to a button (the focusable element). The callbacks of keyArrowDown and keyArrowUp let us manipulate the value of index so we can navigate with our arrow keys through the selectable list. With keyEnter we define the selected value and keyEscape makes sure the action can also be cancelled.

For this example to work you'll need to know how to work with the ACPaaS UI Flyout. Also see the ACPaaS UI Auto-complete.

import { SelectableListModule } from '@acpaas-ui/ngx-selectable-list';
import { FlyoutModule } from '@acpaas-ui/ngx-flyout';

@NgModule({
    imports: [
        SelectableListModule,
        FlyoutModule
    ]
});

export class AppModule {};
public onKeyArrowUp() {
    this.index += -1; // Don't forget to check the minimum value (probably 0 or -1)
}

public onKeyArrowDown() {
    this.index += 1; // Don't forget to check the maximum value (probably the length of the heroes array - 1)
}

public onKeyEnter() {
    this.onSelect(this.heroes[this.index]);
}

public onKeyEscape() {
    console.log('Cancelled');
}
<div auiFlyout>
    <button type="button" class="button" auiFlyoutAction auiSelectableActions (keyArrowUp)="onKeyArrowUp()" (keyArrowDown)="onKeyArrowDown()" (keyEnter)="onKeyEnter()" (keyEscape)="onKeyEscape()">Heroes</button>
    <div auiFlyoutZone>
        <aui-selectable-list [items]="heroes" [index]="index" label="name" (selected)="onSelect($event)"></aui-selectable-list>
    </div>
</div>
