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