rows().select()

Since: Select 1.0.0

Select rows. Please note - this property requires the Select extension for DataTables.

Description

This method simply selects the rows that have been found by the rows() selector method.

Selected rows can later be retrieved using the selected extension to the selector-modifier object - for example table.rows( { selected: true } ).data() will get the data of all rows which are selected in the table.

Type

function rows().select()

Description:

Select one or more rows in the table, based on the rows found by the rows() method.

Returns:

API instance that contains a reference to the selected rows.

Example

Select all rows which have a class of 'important':

var table = $('#myTable').DataTable();

table.rows('.important').select();
