p5.Table matchRows() Method

  • Last Updated : 19 Jul, 2020

The matchRows() method of p5.Table in p5.js is used to find all the rows that match the given regular expression. It returns a reference to the matched rows in the form of an array. The column that the method uses to search the row can be specified as a parameter.

Syntax:

matchRows( regexp, [column] )

Parameters: This method accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • regexp: It is a String or RegExp object that specifies the regular expression to match.
  • column: It is a String or number that denotes the column name or ID of the column. It is an optional parameter.

Return Value: This method returns an array of p5.TableRow objects which match the given regular expression.

The example below illustrates the match Rows() method in p5.js:



Example:




function setup() {
  createCanvas(500, 300);
  textSize(16);
  
  matchQueryInput =
    createInput();
  matchQueryInput.position(30, 40);
  
  getColBtn =
    createButton("Get the matching row");
  getColBtn.position(30, 70);
  getColBtn.mouseClicked(getMatchedResults);
  
  // Create the table
  table = new p5.Table();
  
  // Add two columns
  table.addColumn("name");
  table.addColumn("id");
  
  // Add some rows to the table
  let newRow = table.addRow();
  newRow.setString("name", "mary");
  newRow.setString("id", 21);
   
  newRow = table.addRow();
  newRow.setString("name", "marco6");
  newRow.setString("id", 27);
   
  newRow = table.addRow();
  newRow.setString("name", "tunisia 4");
  newRow.setString("id", 32);
  
  newRow = table.addRow();
  newRow.setString("name", "user 23");
  newRow.setString("id", 32);
   
  newRow = table.addRow();
  newRow.setString("name", "admin");
  newRow.setString("id", 45);
  
  newRow = table.addRow();
  newRow.setString("name", "mikasa");
  newRow.setString("id", 23);
  
  showTable();
}
  
function getMatchedResults() {
  clear();
  
  let matchQuery =
      matchQueryInput.value();
  
  if (matchQuery != "") {
  
    // Match the query in the column of 'name' 
    matchResults =
      table.matchRows(new RegExp(matchQuery),
                      'name');
    
    if (matchResults.length > 0) {
      text("The rows that matches the " +
           "query is", 20, 120);
  
      for (let i = 0; i < matchResults.length; i++) {
        // Display the matched value
        text(matchResults[i].arr[0], 20, 140 + i * 20);
        text(matchResults[i].arr[1], 120, 140 + i * 20);
      }
  
  
    }
    else text("No Results Found", 20, 120);
      
  } else {
    text("The query string is empty", 20, 120);
  }
  text("Enter a string to match it in "
       "the 'name' column table", 20, 20);
}
  
function showTable() {
  clear();
  
  // Display the total rows present in the table
  text("There are " + table.getRowCount() +
       " rows in the table", 20, 120);
  
  for (let r = 0; r < table.getRowCount(); r++)
    for (let c = 0; c < table.getColumnCount(); c++)
      text(table.getString(r, c),
           20 + c * 100, 140 + r * 20);
  
  text("Enter a string to match it in "
       "the 'name' column table", 20, 20);
}
