Vue Grid: Tool Panels

This section covers Tool Panels, available via the grid's Side Bar, which allow for easy access to powerful grid operations such as grouping, pivoting, and filtering. Custom Tool Panels can also be provided to the grid.


Tool Panels are panels that sit in the Side Bar to the right of the grid. The Side Bar allows access to the tool panels via buttons that work like tabs. The Side Bar and a Tool Panel are highlighted in the screenshot below.

Side Bar

Version 19 of AG Grid received a major overhaul of the tool panels. It did not make sense to keep the older configuration options. The old property showToolPanel is no longer used. The tool panel is also not included by default - if the tool panel is not configured, no tool panel is shown.

If moving from an earlier version, set sideBar='columns' to receive similar behaviour.

Provided Tool Panels

The grid provides the following Tool Panels:

Custom Tool Panel Components

In addition to the provided Tool Panels, it is also possible to provide custom Tool Panels.

For more details refer to the section: Custom Tool Panel Components.
