Data Grid - Custom columns

Create custom column types.

const usdPrice: GridColTypeDef = {
  type: 'number',
  width: 130,
  valueFormatter: (value) => valueFormatter.format(Number(value)),
  cellClassName: 'font-tabular-nums',

Sparkline charts can be useful as an overview of data trends.

In the demo below, we create a custom column type using the GridColTypeDef interface and use the Sparkline component from @mui/x-charts package in the renderCell property.
