ToolJet - Widget Reference - Custom Component



The data needs to be an objects which needs to be passed as data props to the custom component


title: "Hi! There",
buttonText: "Updated Text",
queryName: "runjs1"


This field is used to add a React code for your custom component. The packages for the custom component can be imported from Skypack. For example, to import React package into the custom component it can be imported as import React from ''.

Tooljet provides 3 props to interact with the app: data, updateData and runQuery.

  • data is a shared object between custom component and Tooljet app.
  • updateData is a function which accepts a single object used to update the data passed to the custom component.
  • runQuery is a function which accepts a query name as a string used to run the query from the custom component.


import React from "";
import ReactDOM from "";
import { Button, Container, Link } from "";

const MyCustomComponent = ({data, updateData, runQuery}) => (
onClick={() => {updateData({, title: 'Hello World!!'})}}>
onClick={() => {runQuery(data.queryName)}}
Run Query

const ConnectedComponent = Tooljet.connectComponent(MyCustomComponent);

ReactDOM.render(<ConnectedComponent />, document.body);

Tooljet.connectComponent acts as a HOC and it is required to get access to the data passed into the custom component and run the query



A Tooltip is often used to specify extra information about something when the user hovers the mouse pointer over the widget.

Under the General accordion, you can set the value in the string format. Now hovering over the widget will display the string as the tooltip.
