PositionColumn Type

This column type allows you to define rows position using a drag and drop feature. Besides this column definition you need to use our javascript PositionExtension and prepare a route to manage the positions update. To help you create this controller you can use our PositionUpdater component.

Available options

Properties Type Expected value
id_field string required The record field containing its id.
position_field string required The record field containing its position.
update_route string required The route called to update records position.
update_method string default: GET The HTTP method used to call the update route.
record_route_params array default: [] An associative array to inject record fields in the update route.
