}
            

children

Function that will be called when each data item is rendered. It will be passed three arguments, the individual data item, its index, and an object indicating the state of the item, if any. It should return a react element.

function
(item, index, { active }) => <Box>...</Box>

data

Array of data objects.

array[string]
["item1", "item2"]
array[object]
[
  { city: "Boise", state: "Idaho" },
  { city: "Fort Collins", state: "Colorado" }
]

gridArea

The name of the area to place this inside a parent Grid.

string
"a parent grid area name"

itemProps

Item specific background, border, and pad, keyed by data index. The background, border, and pad accept the same values as the same named properties on List.

object
{ 27: { background: ..., border: ..., pad: ... }}

margin

The amount of margin around the component.

string
"none"
"xxsmall"
"xsmall"
"small"
"medium"
"large"
"xlarge"
object

Can be specified to distinguish horizontal margin, vertical margin, and margin on a particular side.


{
    vertical: "...",
    horizontal: "...",
    top: "...",
    bottom: "...",
    left: "...",
    right: "..."
}
        

onClickItem

When supplied, this function will be called with an event object that include a 'item' property containing the data value associated with the clicked item and an 'index' property containing the index in 'data' of the clicked item. You should not include interactive elements, like Anchor or Button inside 'primaryKey' or 'secondaryKey' as that can cause confusion with overlapping interactive elements.

function
({ datum, index }) => {}

onMore

Use this to indicate that 'data' doesn't contain all that it could. It will be called when all of the data items have been rendered. This might be used when the total number of items that could be retrieved is more than you'd want to load into the browser. 'onMore' allows you to lazily fetch more from the server only when needed.

function
() => {}

onOrder

Use this to indicate that the user should be allowed to re-order the data items. This cannot be used with 'paginate' or 'onClickItem'. The function will be called with the array of items in their new order when the user moves items via drag and drop or the move up/down controls.

function
() => {}

pad

  start: "...",
  end: "..."
}

object

If providing an object, any Box props or Pagination props are valid and will be used to style the underlying pagination component.

{}

primaryKey

When a string is supplied, it indicates the property in a data item object to use to get the primary content. If a function is supplied, it will be called with the current data item object and should return a React element that will be rendered as the primary content.

string
"property"
function
item => (<Text>{item.entry}</Text>)

secondaryKey

When a string is supplied, it indicates the property in a data item object to use to get the secondary content. If a function is supplied, it will be called with the current data item object and should return a React element that will be rendered as the secondary content.

item => (<Text>{item.entry}</Text>)

React/DOM Properties

At its core, the List component is a regular <ol> element. Thus, both DOM and React properties, methods, and events are accessible. To read up on all of the possible DOM attributes and types available for ol elements, check out this MDN Web Documents page. To learn more about DOM events and methods, you can read more on the MDN Web Events documentation page.

Also, feel free to read about the types of React events available, or see how DOM attributes change in React. Working in tandem with Styled Components, you also have access to the as property.
