Since: DataTables 1.10

Feature control table information display field.


When this option is enabled, DataTables will use the info table control feature to show details about the table including information about filtered data if that action is being performed. This option allows that feature to be enabled or disabled.

As of DataTables 2, the position of the information display is defined by the layout option, which can also be used to disabled the feature or provide extra configuration for it.

In legacy 1.x installs, the dom option can be used to position the element along with some CSS.


This option can be given in the following type(s):


  • Value: true


Disable information display:

new DataTable('#myTable', {
	info: false
