Row grouping

Although DataTables doesn't have row grouping built-in (picking one of the many methods available would overly limit the DataTables core), it is most certainly possible to give the look and feel of row grouping.

Complex headers

When using tables to display data, you will often wish to display column information in groups. DataTables fully supports colspan and rowspan in the table's header, assigning the required order listeners to the TH element suitable for that column. Need to add .complex-headers class for styling.

Add rows

New rows can be added to a DataTable very easily using the ( row.add() ) API method. Simply call the API function with the data that is to be used for the new row (be it an array or object). Multiple rows can be added using the ( rows.add() ) method (note the plural). Data can be likewise be updated with the ( row().data() and row().remove() methods. )

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5
Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5

Column selectors with Export and Print Options

All of the data export buttons have a exportOptions option which can be used to specify information about what data should be exported and how. The options given for this parameter are passed directly to the buttons.exportData() method to obtain the required data.

The print button will open a new window in the end user's browser and, by default, automatically trigger the print function allowing the end user to print the table. The window will be closed once the print is complete, or has been cancelled.

Scroll - horizontal and vertical

In this example you can see DataTables doing both horizontal and vertical scrolling at the same time. Note also that pagination is enabled in this example, and the scrolling accounts for this.
