AngularJS ui-grid- To show ‘No Data Available’ when the response contains empty array

angular-uiangular-ui-gridangularjs

I want to show 'No Data Available' in ui-Grid 3.0, if the response from the ajax contains empty json data array i.e.;

data = {"data": []};

And now if i do –

$scope.gridOptions.data = data.data;

'No Data Available' must come in ui-Grid.

What is currently happening is that user gets a blank screen if data is empty.

Also how to make it as a default functionality ?

See the plunker here.

Best Solution

You could use a "watermark" (plunker) (updated plunker)

template

  <div ui-grid="gridOptions" ui-grid-selection ui-grid-exporter class="grid">
    <div class="watermark" ng-show="!gridOptions.data.length">No data available</div>
  </div>

CSS

.watermark {
    position: absolute;
    top : 80px;
    opacity: 0.25;
    font-size: 3em;
    width: 100%;
    text-align: center;
    z-index: 1000;
}

Edit:

to make the .watermark independent from the specific parent size:

.watermark {
    position: absolute;
    top: 50%;                    <---- Center vertically in the parent element,
    transform: translateY(-50%); <---- it works for any parent height
    opacity: 0.25;
    font-size: 3em;
    width: 100%;
    text-align: center;
    z-index: 1000;
}
