    Auto-Filter Table with Slicer
    In This Topic

    In GcExcel Java, you can automatically filter tables with slicers via using the methods of the ISlicerCaches interface. This helps in creating a new slicer cache for your table.

    In order to auto-filter table with slicer, refer to the following example code.

    Java
    Copy Code
    // Defining source data
    Object sourceData = new Object[][]
      {
        {"Order ID", "Product", "Category", "Amount", "Date", "Country"},
        {1, "Carrots", "Vegetables", 4270, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 6),"United States"},
        {2, "Broccoli", "Vegetables", 8239, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 7),"United Kingdom"},
        {3, "Banana", "Fruit", 617, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 8),"United States"},
        {4, "Banana", "Fruit", 8384, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 10),"Canada"},
        {5, "Beans", "Vegetables", 2626, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 10),"Germany"},
        {6, "Orange", "Fruit", 3610, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 11),"United States"},
        {7, "Broccoli", "Vegetables", 9062, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 11),"Australia"},
        {8, "Banana", "Fruit", 6906, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 16),"New Zealand"},
        {9, "Apple", "Fruit", 2417, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 16),"France"},
        {10, "Apple", "Fruit", 7431, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 16),"Canada"},

        {14, "Broccoli", "Vegetables", 2824, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 22),"Canada"},
        {15, "Apple", "Fruit", 6946, new GregorianCalendar(2018, 0, 24),"France"},
      };
            
    // Initialize the workbook and fetch the default worksheet
    Workbook workbook = new Workbook();
    IWorksheet worksheet = workbook.getWorksheets().get(0);
      
    // Adding data to the table
    worksheet.getRange("A:F").setColumnWidth(15);
    worksheet.getRange("A1:F16").setValue(sourceData);
    ITable table = worksheet.getTables().add(worksheet.getRange("A1:F16"), true);
    table.getColumns().get(3).getDataBodyRange().setNumberFormat("$#,##0.00");
    
    // Create slicer cache for table.
    ISlicerCache cache = workbook.getSlicerCaches().add(table, "Category", "categoryCache");
    
    // Add slicer for table
    ISlicer slicer1 = cache.getSlicers().add(workbook.getWorksheets().get("Sheet1"), "cate1", 
    "Category", 20, 550, 100, 200);
    
    // Apply table filter
    // This synchronizes automatically to the slicer. The slicer1's selected item is "Fruit".
    worksheet.getRange("A1:F16").autoFilter(2, "Fruit");
