Started on building custom module, it has feature to display the GRID view for which need to join multiple tables in collection and render them on GRID and filters.

I have used UI Component from magento2 but I m not able to complete the tasks of joining the multiple tables in collection and prepare the grid view.

Anyone can help me on this.

I created admin grid which has join of two custom tables. you cannot do this by using virtual type in di.xml, so you need to follow these steps and update your

etc/di.xml,

Model/Resource/Modulename/Collection.php add join in this file,

Model/Resource/Modulename/Grid/Collection.php,

IN your etc/di.xml

<type name="Magento\Framework\View\Element\UiComponent\DataProvider\CollectionFactory">
        <arguments>
            <argument name="collections" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="namespace_modulename_listing_data_source" xsi:type="string">Namespace\Modulename\Model\Resource\Modulename\Grid\Collection</item>
            </argument>
        </arguments>
</type>

Join 2 tables

In your Vendor\Module\Model\ResourceModel\ModelName\Grid\Collection, add the _initSelect() function like below

protected function _initSelect()
{
    parent::_initSelect();

    $this->getSelect()->joinLeft(
        ['secondTable' => $this->getTable('admin_user')], //2nd table name by which you want to join
        'main_table.user_id= secondTable.user_id', // common column which available in both table 
        '*' // '*' define that you want all column of 2nd table. if you want some particular column then you can define as ['column1','column2']
    );
}

Join 3 tables and More

Use thirdTable, fourthTable to join more tables like below:

protected function _initSelect()
{
    parent::_initSelect();

    $this->getSelect()->joinLeft(
        ['secondTable' => $this->getTable('admin_user')],
        'main_table.user_id = secondTable.user_id',
        ['username']
    )->joinLeft(
        ['thirdTable' => $this->getTable('catalog_product_entity')],
        'main_table.product_id = thirdTable.entity_id',
        ['sku']
    );//use fourthTable, fifthTable to join more tables
}

Example

File app/code/SAdmin/Cart/etc/di.xml.

The item name is the name of data_source used in your UI Components.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Framework\View\Element\UiComponent\DataProvider\CollectionFactory">

            <argument name="collections" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="sadmin_cart_index_index_listing_data_source" xsi:type="string">SAdmin\Cart\Model\ResourceModel\Quote\Grid\Collection</item>
            </argument>
        </arguments>
    </type>
</config>

File app/code/SAdmin/Cart/Model/ResourceModel/Quote/Grid/Collection.php

Please notice extends the Magento\Framework\View\Element\UiComponent\DataProvider\SearchResult and set the parameters $mainTable and $resourceModel.

namespace SAdmin\Cart\Model\ResourceModel\Quote\Grid;


use Magento\Framework\Data\Collection\Db\FetchStrategyInterface as FetchStrategy;
use Magento\Framework\Data\Collection\EntityFactoryInterface as EntityFactory;
use Magento\Framework\Event\ManagerInterface as EventManager;
use Magento\Framework\View\Element\UiComponent\DataProvider\SearchResult;
use Psr\Log\LoggerInterface as Logger;

class Collection extends SearchResult
{
    public function __construct(
        EntityFactory $entityFactory, Logger $logger, FetchStrategy $fetchStrategy, EventManager $eventManager,
        $mainTable = 'quote',
        $resourceModel = 'Magento\Quote\Model\ResourceModel\Quote',
        $identifierName = null, $connectionName = null
    )
    {
        parent::__construct($entityFactory, $logger, $fetchStrategy, $eventManager, $mainTable, $resourceModel, $identifierName, $connectionName);
    }

    public function _initSelect()
    {
        parent::_initSelect();
        return $this->getSelect()->joinLeft(
            ['secondTable' => $this->getTable('customer_group')], //2nd table name by which you want to join
            'main_table.customer_group_id= secondTable.customer_group_id', // common column which available in both table
            ['customer_group_code']// '*' define that you want all column of 2nd table. if you want some particular column then you can define as ['column1','column2']
        );
    }
}
