Salesforce Lightning ListView

A lightning:listView component represents a list view of records that you own or have read or write access to, and records shared with you. They also include records owned by or shared with users in roles below you in the role hierarchy. You can see only the fields that are visible according to your page layout and field-level security settings.

To create a list view, specify which object to render with the objectApiName attribute and which list view to use with the listName attribute. The list view doesn’t require additional Apex controllers or Lightning Data Service to display record data. Here is an example which displays a “My_Accounts” list view of Account object.

Note: This component requires API 42.0 and later.

Create Account ListView:

Lightning Component to Show the ListView:

<aura:component controller="SampleAuraController" implements="flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes" access="global">
    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}"/>
    <div class="slds-m-around_xx-large">
        <lightning:listView aura:id="listViewAccounts"

Mass Delete Button for ListView in Salesforce

Sometimes we need a Mass Delete kind of button. Where, we can select records in ListView and simply click “Delete” button for mass delete of records.

Here is an example of “Mass Delete” ListView button to delete multiple records. In below example I’ve implemented the “Mass Delete” button on Lead object.

Go to Setup || Object || Buttons, Links, and Actions || New Button or Link || Fill the ListView Button required information as shown in below image.

Fill the below JavaScript code in JavaScript Code Section:


//Add ObjectType, on which object you want to add the list view button .
var records = {!GETRECORDIDS($ObjectType.Lead)

if (records[0] == null) {
    alert("Please select at least one record to delete.")
} else {

    var opt = confirm("Are you sure you want to delete selected records ?");
    if (opt == true) {
        var errors = [];
        var result = sforce.connection.deleteIds(records);
        if (result && result.length) {
            var nFailed = 0;
            var nSucceeded = 0;
            for (var i = 0; i < result.length; i++) {
                var res = result[i];
                if (res && res.success == 'true') {
                } else {
                    var es = res.getArray("errors");
                    if (es.length > 0) {
            if (nFailed > 0) {
                alert("Failed: " + nFailed + " and Succeeded: " + nSucceeded + " n Due to: " + errors.join("n"));
            } else {
                alert("Number of deleted records: " + nSucceeded);

Now add the above “Mass Delete” ListView button to ListView Layout.
Go to Setup || Object || Search Layouts || List View Layout || Edit || Add the Custom button to List View layout as shown in below image || Save

Now we can delete mass records from List View.
