Interactive data-tables are awesome and a challenge – LWC’s lightning-datatable is no exception. It has many, useful features, lots of documentation and can handle various use cases from working with single fields to several records. Loading Salesforce records with a fixed set of fields and a fixed set of column labels is straightforward and quickly done. What about the next level, though? Loading a related list for example? Sortable. Searchable. Displaying the table in the user’s end language, with translated columns and values, too, where supported. Scanning a Large Data Volume like 70.000 records. This talk will not provide a solution. It will focus on the path to a possible solution: Given all these requirements, where do I start? Where and how do I get test records? And 70k! Should sorting happen in the datatable or should Apex do the lifting? Which APIs do I use? When? How often? Where? Why? Join us for a bit of code and lots of serious, honest experience sharing.
