Setting Row Color

This might have been asked before, but I don't see the answer in the forum. I want to change the row color after a user performs an update. Here is what I've tried. The rows have odd or even in the class

I get the row with var

_row = _mytable.row(_rowindex).node();

I've tried this but it messes up the formatting.

$(_row).removeClass().addClass('bg-success');

I've tried this below ,but the background color(odd,even) overrides the new class that I add.

$(_row).addClass('bg-success'),

I'm sure this is simple, but I can't figure it out. Can you point me in the right direction?

    That is similar to what I'm doing. The problem I'm running into is The table is striped and has quite a bit of CSS. it has odd / even rows.

    <tr> role="row" class="odd">...</tr>
    <tr> role="row" class="even">...</tr>
    <tr> role="row" class="odd">...</tr>
    

    Do I need to create a class and force background-color !important ?

    Hi @lesljr ,

    We're happy to take a look, but as per the forum rules, please link to a test case - a test case that replicates the issue will ensure you'll get a quick and accurate response. Information on how to create a test case (if you aren't able to link to the page you are working on) is available here.

    Cheers,
