Row Click

To configure an action that executes on row click, set the rowAction param to true.

Control Actions on Record Level and Custom Configuration

To manage(show/hide) some actions by condition(dependent on row), add the action_configuration option to the datagrid configuration. This option should contain array or closure. Closure should return an array of actions that must be shown/hidden. The key of the array should be an action name and value should be true(or array)/false value (show/hide respectively). This configuration will be passed to the JavaScript component.

1 # static configuration
2 action_configuration:
3     action1: false # hidden
4     action2: true # shown
5     action3: {param1: 'value1'} # shown and pass {param1: 'value1'} to component
1 # dynamic configuration
2 action_configuration: ['@acme.datagrid.action_configuration_provider', 'getActionConfiguration']
