Let’s start today’s tutorial *How do I create custom **th labels for b-table using the BootstrapVue in VueJS?***

Install the Bootstrap and BootstrapVue

First, we have to install the Vue project, I had installed the vueJS in my system. If you haven’t installed or have any problem with installation you can follow this article, it will show you step by step process of installation. In that article, I had also show you how to install BootstrapVue in your vue.js project step by step.

How to install or configure vue-bootstrap in VueJS?

Create FirstComponent.vue and import it into App.js

Create the new component into src/components/ components folder.the component name is FirstComponent.vue and import into App.js file:

App.js

<template>
  <div id="app">
    <FirstComponent />
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import FirstComponent from "./components/FirstComponent.vue";
export default {
  name: "App",
  components: {
    FirstComponent,
  },
};
</script>

<style>
#app {
  font-family: Avenir, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
  -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
  -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
  text-align: center;
  color: #2c3e50;
  margin-top: 60px;
}
</style>

Define items Arrays of objects property for Test

Let’s define the items in the data of the FirstComponent.vue component for testing purposes.

FirstComponent.vue

<script>
export default {
    name: 'FirstComponent',
    data() {
        return{
            items: [
                { id: 1, site_name: "SortoutCode", site_url: "https://sortoutcode.com/" },
                { id: 2, site_name: "Aguidehub", site_url: "https://aguidehub.com/" },
                { id: 3, site_name: "Infinitbility", site_url: "https://infinitbility.com/" },
                { id: 4, site_name: "Test", site_url: "https://test.com/" },
            ],
        }
    },
}
</script>

Data is used to define properties in a particular component. In a single-file component, data() is a function that returns a set of properties that have been described in the function.

we define the items you can see that.

Define fields Array of properties for table heading

Let’s define the fields in the data of the FirstComponent.vue, Fields data can be a simple array, for defining the order of the columns, and which columns to display. We are going to use the fields array data as the table heading:

FirstComponent.vue

<script>
export default {
    name: 'FirstComponent',
    data() {
        return{
            fields:["id","site_url","site_name"],
            items: [
                { id: 1, site_name: "SortoutCode", site_url: "https://sortoutcode.com/" },
                { id: 2, site_name: "Aguidehub", site_url: "https://aguidehub.com/" },
                { id: 3, site_name: "Infinitbility", site_url: "https://infinitbility.com/" },
                { id: 4, site_name: "Test", site_url: "https://test.com/" },
            ],
        }
    },
}
</script>

Using the b-table tag create table

<b-table> automatically samples the first row of the key of the array into the table heading. and All the first row of the array of keys Field names are automatically humanized by converting kebab-case, snake_case, and camelCase to individual words and capitalizing each word. you can see some of the examples listed below:

  • first_name becomes First Name
  • last-name becomes Last Name
  • age becomes Age
  • YEAR remains YEAR
  • isActive becomes Is Active

You can see the final codes for b-table,

FirstComponent.vue

<template>
  <div class="hello">
    <b-table striped hover :items="items" :fields="fields"></b-table>
  </div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  name: "FirstComponent",
  data() {
    return {
        fields:["id","site_url","site_name"],
        items: [
            { id: 1, site_name: "SortoutCode", site_url: "https://sortoutcode.com/" },
            { id: 2, site_name: "Aguidehub", site_url: "https://aguidehub.com/" },
            { id: 3, site_name: "Infinitbility", site_url: "https://infinitbility.com/" },
            { id: 4, site_name: "Test", site_url: "https://test.com/" },
        ],
    };
  },
};
</script>

<style scoped>
h3 {
  margin: 40px 0 0;
}
ul {
  list-style-type: none;
  padding: 0;
}
li {
  display: inline-block;
  margin: 0 10px;
}
a {
  color: #42b983;
}
</style>

For now, let’s check the output.
