Please note - this property requires the Select extension for DataTables.
This method simply deselects the cells that have been found by the
cells() selector method.
Deselect one or more cells in the table, based on the cells found by the
API instance that contains a reference to the deselected cells.
Deselect all cells which have a class of 'important':
var table = $('#myTable').DataTable(); table.cells('.important').deselect();
