Options

Required

importerKey: string

This can be found in the admin panel.

importerKey="importer-key";

Optional

user: json object

Contains details of the user, so that they can be identified when your backend receives a webhook.

user={{ userId: "12345" }}

metadata: json object

If you have additional data which you want to associate with the import but isn't related to the user, you can use the metadata prop. This will also be included in the webhook your backend receives.

metadata={{ anotherId: "123" }}

downloadExampleButton: boolean

Choose if you want to display the Download Example button found in the first Getting Started step in the importer.

Default value is true

sampleFileURL: string

Used to set your sample file URL that will be downloaded when clicking the Download Example button found in the first Getting Started step in the importer.

defaultLanguage: enum

type Language = "en" | "fr" | "es" | "pt" | "de" | "nl";

Used to set the importer default language. defaultLanguage option has a higher priority than the default language set in the admin panel.

acceptedFileFormats: array

type acceptedFileFormats = Array<"xls" | "xlsx" | "xlsb" | "csv">;

Used to set accepted file formats. The default value is ["csv", "xls", "xlsx", "xlsb"]

columnWidth: enum

type columnWidth = "fixed" | "auto";

Used to set column width in the Match Columns table. Kindly note that choosing the auto option might affect the column matching step perforamce. Default value is fixed.

customText: json object

Used to set custom text messages in the importer.

  type customText = {
importedRows: {
text: string | undefined;
downloadRowsButton: string | undefined;
} | undefined;
rejectedRows: {
text: string | undefined;
downloadRowsButton: string | undefined;
} | undefined;
}
  • importedRows:
    • text: a custom message for successfully imported rows. Default is {{rows_count}} rows were imported successfully. Use {{rows_count}} placeholder to show the number of imported rows.
    • downloadRowsButton: a custom text for the download imported rows button. Default is Download .csv with imported rows
  • rejectedRows:
    • text: a custom message for rejected rows. Default is {{rows_count}} rows have errors and were not imported. Use {{rows_count}} placeholder to show the number of rejected rows.
    • downloadRowsButton: a custom text for the download rejected rows button. Default is Download .csv with rows that were not imported

batchSize: number

batchSize option is used to adjust the number of rows per batch sent to:

Please note that using batchSize option requires a different response format in onData callback

If batchSize is not used, the default behaviour will apply:

  • onRecordsInitial Validation Hook will receive 1,000 rows per batch.
  • onData callback will receive all rows in one batch (no batching).
  • Webhook will receive 1,000 rows per batch.
<!-- usage example -->
<!-- app.component.html -->
<!-- 20 rows per batch will be sent to onRecordsInitial Validation Hook, onData callback and Webhook -->

</div>

dynamicColumns: array of json objects

dynamicColumns option is used to define your importer columns.

Ways to define importer columns:
  • From the admin panel.

  • From the frontend using the dynamicColumns option.

  • Using both ways combined.

onFileUpload: function

A function that is triggered when a file is uploaded in the importer.

type onFileUpload = (({ file }: { file: File }) => void) | undefined;

onMatchColumns: function

A function that is triggered when the Match Columns step is first loaded. Used to return a suggested column matching map.

type onMatchColumns = ({
configuredColumns,
uploadedFileHeaders,
headerRow,
}: {
configuredColumns: string[];

onMatchColumns function parameters

  • configuredColumns: array of configured columns, either from the admin panel or the dynamic columns option.
  • uploadedFileHeaders: array of column headers from the uploaded file. The value is an array of alphabet letters if the header row is absent (e.g, ['A', 'B', 'C', 'D', ...]).
  • headerRow boolean value that indicates if a header row exists in the uploaded file.

onMatchColumns function response

Return a suggested column matching map formed as an object with keys of headers from the uploaded file and values of configured columns. UseCSV fuzzy matching is off when a column matching map is returned. Returning an empty object, undefined, or void enables UseCSV fuzzy matching.

You can edit each CSS property in the UseCSV default theme object, and pass it to the theme option. Visit Theme Your Importer to know more about the theme object.

onData: function

If you prefer to handle your data locally and disable uploading user data to UseCSV server, you can configure your importer to receive uploaded data in the onData callback option.

type onDataResponseWithoutBatching = Promise<{
errors?: { row: Record<string, string | number | undefined>; error: string }[];
successes?: Record<string, string | number | undefined>[];
} | void>;

type onDataResponseWithBatching = Promise<{
errors?: { row: number; error: string }[];
successes?: Record<string, string | number | undefined>[];
} | void>;

onData?: (data: {
uploadId: number;
fileName: string;
matchedColumnsMap?: Record<string, string | number>;
uploadedFileHeaders?: Array<string>;
rows: Record<string, string | number>[];
user?: Record<string, string | number>;
metadata?: Record<string, string | number>;
importedRowsCount: number;
batch?: {
index: number;
count: number;
totalRows: number;
};
}) => void | onDataResponseWithoutBatching | onDataResponseWithBatching;
// app.component.ts

import { Component } from "@angular/core";

@Component({
selector: "app-root",
templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
styleUrls: ["./app.component.css"],
})
export class AppComponent {
title = "usecsv";
onDataCallback(data) {
console.log(data);
}
}
<!-- app.component.html -->

<div>
<usecsv-button
importerKey="your-importer-key"
[user]='{ userId: "12345" }'
[onData]="onDataCallback"
>
Import Data
</usecsv-button>
</div>

// console output
{
uploadId: 334,
fileName: "data.csv",
user: { userId: "12345" },
metadata: { anotherId: "1" },
rows: [
{
row: 1, // row number
firstName: "Mari",
email: "mari@gmail.com",
},
{
row: 2, // row number
firstName: "John",
email: "john@gmail.com",
},
],
matchedColumnsMap: {
firstName: "first name",
email: "email address"
},
uploadedFileHeaders: ["first name", "email address", "age"]
};

onData callback function parameters

  • uploadId: upload ID.
  • fileName: uploaded file name.
  • user json object of user object if provided.
  • metadatajson object of metadata object if provided.
  • matchedColumnsMap: json object of matched columns with keys of configured columns and column names in the original user uploaded file.
  • uploadedFileHeaders: array of strings of uploaded file headers (column names) including matched, un-matched and skipped headers.
  • rows: array of json objects of rows, with keys of:
    • row: number of row in the uploaded file starting from 1.
    • columnName: cell value.
  • importedRowsCount: total number of imported rows.
  • batch: json object of batch details sent only when using the batchSize option, with keys of:
    • index: number of batch starting from 1.
    • count: number of total batches expected to be received.
    • totalRows: number of total rows per file.

Return successfully imported rows array

  • Sometimes you might need to provide your users with new columns containing extra info after their data is imported successfully (for example a column of ids that are generated in your database), you can retrun an array of rows with any number of columns that user will be provided with a downloadable .csv file from the Download .csv with imported rows button in the final step.
Usage example
  • Assume having an importer with only two configured columns: firstName and lastName, and you need to provide your user with an autogenerated id for each successfully importered row.
// usage example
// app.component.ts

import { Component } from "@angular/core";

@Component({
selector: "app-root",
templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
styleUrls: ["./app.component.css"],
})
export class AppComponent {
title = "usecsv";
onDataCallback(data) {
/*
* run your logic
*/

return Promise.resolve({
errros: [...],
successes: data.rows.map((row) => {
return {
...row,
newGeneratedId: getRandomId(), // newGeneratedId is a new column that is not configured in the importer
};
}),
});
}
}
Uploaded file:
Uploaded file
Successfully importered rows file:
Imported rows file

Return errors

  • You can retrun an array of rows with errors and the user will be provided with a downloadable .csv file containing the rejected rows and error messages.

Example of onData error handling without using batching (batchSize option is not passed to UseCSV)

// app.component.ts

import { Component } from "@angular/core";

@Component({
selector: "app-root",
templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
styleUrls: ["./app.component.css"],
})
export class AppComponent {
title = "usecsv";
onDataCallback(data) {
/*
* run your validation
*/

// if no errors
return;

// if you found rows with errors, save the correct rows, and retrun an array of rows with errors
return Promise.resolve({
errors: [
{
row: {
firstName: "Mari",
email: "mari@gmail.com",
},
error: "email already exists",
},
],
});
}
}

Example of onData error handling when using batching (batchSize option is passed to UseCSV)

Please note that using batchSize option requires the row number in onData callback errors response

// app.component.ts

import { Component } from "@angular/core";

@Component({
selector: "app-root",
templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
styleUrls: ["./app.component.css"],
})
export class AppComponent {
title = "usecsv";
batchSize = 100;
onDataCallback(data) {
/*
* run your validation
*/

// if no errors
return;

// if you found rows with errors, save the correct rows, and retrun an array of rows with errors
return Promise.resolve({
errors: [
{
row: 1, // must be the row number
error: "email already exists",
},
],
});
}
}

Validation Hooks

Validation Hooks allow you to validate user uploads during the interactive import process, so that your users can address any invalid data before it's imported into your app. When configuring your importer in the UseCSV admin, you can choose which columns to enable Validation Hooks for.

To use Validation Hooks you'll need to implement two callbacks: onRecordsInitial and onRecordEdit. They will pass you the uploaded data (for the columns Validation Hooks is enabled for) and allow you to return errors, info messages or heal values to the user.

Check using Validation Hooks codesandbox example
Check examples of using Data Healing:

onRecordsInitial: Function

onRecordsInitial callback function is triggered after the user uploads a file and once the column matching is completed. Data from the columns with Validation Hook enabled will be sent to your frontend, so you can run your own validation and replace current value (Data Healing) or return rows with errors if any and custom error and info messages to be shown to the user. Data will be sent in batches of 1,000 rows by default if batchSize is not used.

type onRecordsInitial = ({
uploadId,
fileName,
importerId,
batch,
user,
metadata,
rows,
}: {
uploadId: string;
fileName: string;
importerId: string;
batch: {
index: number;
count: number;
totalRows: number;
};
user?: Record<string, string | number> | null;
metadata?: Record<string, string | number> | null;
rows: Array<{
row: number;
data: {
[columnName: string]: {
value: string | number | null;
isValid: boolean;
};
};
}>;
}) =>
| Promise<Array<{
row: number;
[columnName: string]: Array<{
message: string;
level: "error" | "info" | "healing";
newValue?: string; // required for healing level
}>;
}> | void>
| Array<{
row: number;
data: {
[columnName: string]: Array<{
message: string;
level: "error" | "info" | "healing";
newValue?: string; // required for healing level
}>;
};
}>
| void;
Usage example

Assuming Validation Hooks are enabled for email and age columns only, where:

  • email column is configured with validation format of email in admin panel.
  • age column is configured with validation format of number in admin panel
// app.component.ts

import { Component } from "@angular/core";

@Component({
selector: "app-root",
templateUrl: "./app.component.html",

})
export class AppComponent {
title = "usecsv";
onRecordsInitialCallback({
uploadId,
fileName,
importerId,
batch,
user,
metadata,
rows,
}) {
console.log({
uploadId,
fileName,
importerId,
batch,
user,
metadata,
rows,
}); // check below the console output

// run custom validation
// if no errors
return;

// or return an array of errors
return [
{
row: 1,
data: {
email: [
{
message: "Email already exists", // first error message
level: "error",
},
{
message: "Invalid email", // second error message (optional)
level: "error",
},
],
age: [
{
message: "Age must be 18 or above",
level: "info",
},
],
},
},
{
row: 2,
data: {
age: [
{
message: "Age must be a number",
level: "error",
},
],
},
},
{
row: 3,
data: {
email: [
{
