I am trying to create a custom list view and deploy a LWC that lists records in the list. My component works with dummy data, but once I created an Apex class to execute my SOQL query it is having issues.

I know my Apex class works fine since I tried it without filtering functionality.

However, to add filtering functionality I am also using @track. So that I can track the value of the current items to display based on which filter is active.

I am suspecting that my usages of @wire and @track are problematic.

When I call @track on my dummy, local list inside the JS file, there is no issue (no use of @wire at all). When I try to track applications that is a result of the @wire, the component refuses to load. How can I fix this?

@track itemsForCurrentView = applications; 

The value will only be assigned once, so it won't be reactive.

@wire(getLoanApplications) applications;

You need to pass in the filter properties, if any, and make them reactive:

@wire(getLoanApplications, { filter: '$currentFilter' }) 

If you need to do any post-processing, do it with a handler:

@wire(getLoanApplications, { filter: '$currentFilter' }) 
applicationsWireHandler({data,error}) {
  if(data) {
    // You can massage the data if you need to //
    this.itemsForCurrentView = data;
  if(error) {
    // display an error // 
  • When you say "pass in filter properties, and make them reactive" would I do @track itemsForCurrentView = applications? Or does your code snippet already make it reactive? When I try assigning applications to the @wire with the filter, I get an error saying applications is not defined.

  • @Lia No, you do not do the assignment; that's only for assigning a default value. @wire variables automatically cause update renders, so you do not need to @track them manually or assign them elsewhere.

  • Then how do I initialize itemsForCurrentView?

  • Is there elsewhere where I need to initialize applications? I keep getting an error saying it is not defined.

  • So it looks like whenever I try to set itemsForCurrentView to applications it thinks applications is not defined. How else can I set default itemsForCurrentView as the applications?
