How to obtain the full rows of the datatable within a date range I specify?


#1

I have a datatable that I want to extract certain date ranges to look at the differences monthly/seasonally in R. The data has a column of date values.


#2

When you say a datatable are you referring to a data frame or are you actually talking about a datatable?

If you are talking about a data frame, you can use a filter statement from the dplyr package or you could use time_filter from the tibbletime package.

It is hard to give you an exact answer without any idea what your data looks like, what you want it to look like, and what you have tried. You should try to put together a minimal reproducible example (aka a reprex)

i am talking about datatable


#4

i want to know how to filter some data in datatable
https://rstudio.github.io/DT/ using daterangeinput


#5

are you trying to filter it from the app itself or in your server code for the app based on the user input?

Can you post the code you have tried?

ui<-mainpanel(
datarangeinput(‘daterange’,start=sys.date(),-2&end=sys.date(),+2),
datatableoutput(‘table’))
server<-
output$table<-DT::renderdatatable({
dataset
})
my dataset has field date…in this i dont know to code to obtain the data
with in the range i specify in the daterange input

i want to filter it based on user input

You can just use filter or time_filter (as mentioned above) in your renderDataTable() function. NOTE: R is case sensitive and it is important that you pay close attention to function names (i.e. it is renderDataTable, dataTableOutput(), and dateRangeInput()) . Also, your server code needs to be in the form of a function. It would look like this:

ui<-mainpanel(
  dateRangeInput(‘daterange’,start=sys.date(),-2, end=sys.date() +2),
  dataTableOutput(‘table’)
)

server<- function(input, output){
  output$table<-DT::renderDataTable({
  dataset %>%
    filter(date > input$daterange[1],
           date < input$daterange[2])
  })
}
