How to check if there are no rows visible to display another component.

Asked by Sam

My app is written in React. I have filters for my scheduler, and when changing them, the rows are filtered and made invisible (with onRowFilter in config).
When there are no rows visible, I want to display another component (noResults component).

The only solution I found was to use a workaround and create a variable:

const noRows = scheduler?.rows.all().filter(row => row.displayY !== undefined).length === 0

However even if the value changes from false to true correctly, it is not displaying my NoResult component and I always have an error:
"TypeError: Cannot read properties of null (reading 'clientWidth')"

Here is how it looks like:

 {noRows ? (
            <NoResults />
          ) : (
              <DayPilotScheduler {...config} globalHolidays={holidays} ref={component => setScheduler(component && component.control)} />
)

Thank you in advance for the help!

This logic destroys the component when noRows if false and makes the scheduler instance invalid.

You can try using the "visible" attribute instead, something like this:

<DayPilotScheduler {...config} visible={!noRows} globalHolidays={holidays} ref={component => setScheduler(component && component.control)} />

And to get a list of visible rows, you can use rows.visible():

const noRows = scheduler?.rows.visible().length === 0;

Thank you for the very fast reply!
I have no more error using the "visible" attribute. However for some reasons my "noRows" variable stays "false" when I set some filters, and turns "true" very fast when I clear them, before turning back to false, so the Scheduler always stays visible. It is like I have to wait for the scheduler to be fully loaded before setting the noRows variable? Or it could be a React problem on my side...

If you call rows.update() the Scheduler will be updated immediately. Just make sure that noRows is updated after this call - you also need to save the updated value in the state so that React can detect the change.

Thank you! finally I didn't need to use it and I simplified the code, this way worked for me:

      {isLoading ? <Loading /> : null}

      {scheduler?.rows.visible().length === 0 ? <NoResults /> : null}

      <DayPilotScheduler
        visible={!isLoading && scheduler?.rows.visible().length !== 0}
        {...config}
        globalHolidays={holidays}
        ref={component => setScheduler(component && component.control)}
      />
