Whenever we want to generate some data and build demos for the grid Component, we can use the x-grid-data-generator module in React JS. It has a large variety of data sets to play around with. DataGrid Component helps in displaying the information in a grid-like format of rows and columns. We can use the following approach in ReactJS to use the x-grid-data-generator module.



To use x-grid-data-generator Module in ReactJS we will import the useDemoData function from this module and then use a common data set from this function by passing the DataSet name along with rowLength and maxColumns attribute. And after that, we have passed the data object to our DataGrid Component to display it to the user.
