Specifies a custom template for the widget content. Rendered only once - when the widget is created.

Type:

template

Function parameters:
container:

Element (jQuery or HTML)

|

DOM Node

|

jQuery

A template name or container.

If this option is defined, the itemTemplate option is ignored.

See Also

dataSource

Binds the widget to data.

Default Value: null

If you use DevExtreme ASP.NET MVC Controls, refer to the Bind Controls to Data article.

The SlideOut works with collections of string values or objects.

Depending on your data source, bind the SlideOut to data as follows. If the data source provides objects, also specify the itemTemplate. You can skip this part if the objects contain fields described in the Default Item Template section.

  • Data Array
    Assign the array to the dataSource option.

  • Read-Only Data in JSON Format
    Set the dataSource option to the URL of a JSON file or service that returns JSON data.

  • OData
    Implement an ODataStore.

  • Web API, PHP, MongoDB
    Use one of the following extensions to enable the server to process data according to the protocol DevExtreme widgets use:

    Then, use the createStore method to configure access to the server on the client as shown below. This method is part of DevExtreme.AspNet.Data.

    jQuery
    JavaScript
    $(function() {
        let serviceUrl = "https://url/to/my/service";
        $("#slideOutContainer").dxSlideOut({
            // ...

        }

    export default App;
  • Any other data source
    Implement a CustomStore.

Regardless of the data source on the input, the SlideOut always wraps it in the DataSource object. This object allows you to sort, filter, group, and otherwise shape data. To get its instance, call the getDataSource() method.

NOTE

Please review the following notes about data binding:

  • Do not specify the items option if you specified the dataSource, and vice versa.

  • Data field names should not contain the following characters: ., ,, :, [, and ].

  • DataSource and stores provide methods to process and update data. However, the methods do not allow you to perform particular tasks (for example, replace the entire dataset, reconfigure data access at runtime). For such tasks, create a new array, store, or DataSource and assign it to the dataSource option as shown in the articles about changing options in jQuery, Angular, React, and Vue.
