AngularJS Table Filtering with Ng-Table

Here we will learn how to implement filtering to table columns / rows data in angularjs using ng-table module along with sorting and pagination options.

AngularJS Table with Filtering

In angularjs we can implement filtering for table columns data by using ng-table module. Generally in angularjs if we want to implement filtering for table columns data we need to write a lot of code but if we use ng-table module in angularjs applications it’s very easy to implement filtering for table columns data with few lines of code.

Syntax of AngularJS Table with Filtering

Following is the syntax of implementing filtering for table columns data using ng-table in angularjs applications.


getData: function ($defer, params) {

$ = params.filter() ? $filter('filter')($, params.filter()) : $;



If you observe above syntax we are implementing filtering functionality to $scope.users object by using filter in angularjs. Here getData function will call every time whenever we try to filter table column data and it will refresh the data of $scope.users object based on filter column data.

<table ng-table ="usersTable" show-filter=true class="table table-bordered table-striped">

<tr ng-repeat="user in data">

<td data-title="'Age'" sortable="'age'" filter="{ 'age': 'text' }">{{user.age}}</td>

<td data-title="'Location'" sortable="'location'" filter="{ 'location': 'text' }">{{user.location}}</td>






If you observe above code we are implementing sortingpaging and filtering to table data in angularjs application using ng-table module. Now we will run and see the result of application.
