Topic: Attributes in MDBDataTable not working?

Mike.Thomson free asked 4 years ago

*Expected behavior*API Documentation for MDBDatatable (Data Structure) refers to the ability to define attributes as a collection. I would like to add a class to cells that can be controlled with CSS (eg: To align text to right). For Example

        name: 'Ashton Cox',
        position: 'Junior Technical Author',
        office: 'San Francisco',
        age: '66',
        date: '2009/01/12',
        salary: <div class='float-right'>$86</div>,
        attributes: {
          class: 'xxx',

*Actual behavior*When resulting code is inspected in chrome developer tools, no attributes are assigned to <td> elements. Note: I have also tries className instead of class.

Perhaps there is a better way to assign custom styles to <td> elements, rather than include html in the field value - very cumbersome when data is being read from a large data source via ajax?

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Hi @Mike.Thomson,

Our documentation describes only attributes for columns. Currently, a way to add attributes to one separate cell table as you show in your code example is not possible.

I think it's a good idea to provide that feature in the near future, so I add the task to our feature list.

If there is anything else I could do for you do not hesitate to ask me. I'll be happy to help you.

Best Regards,

That would be good. It is very inefficient currently to have to reiterate the data object to add any keyclick handling, remove null values or apply any html to each element. By allowing class attribute to be assigned then CSS can be used, but it would also be nice if there was a template that could be specified for each column.

@Mike.Thomson sure, you're right. We try to add this feature in the near future.

Hi, I have the same problem have you maybe implemented this feature?

We didn't yet. I don't see this task on our list, somebody removes it or didn't be put., I added again to add that feature.
