Configure a generic column in st.dataframe or st.data_editor.

The type of the column will be automatically inferred from the data type. This command needs to be used in the column_config parameter of st.dataframe or st.data_editor.

To change the type of the column and enable type-specific configuration options, use one of the column types in the st.column_config namespace, e.g. st.column_config.NumberColumn.

Function signature[source]

st.column_config.Column(label=None, *, width=None, help=None, disabled=None, required=None)


label (str or None)

The label shown at the top of the column. If None (default), the column name is used.

width ("small", "medium", "large", or None)

The display width of the column. Can be one of "small", "medium", or "large". If None (default), the column will be sized to fit the cell contents.

An optional tooltip that gets displayed when hovering over the column label.

disabled (bool or None)

Whether editing should be disabled for this column. Defaults to False.

Whether edited cells in the column need to have a value. If True, an edited cell can only be submitted if it has a value other than None. Defaults to False.
