sorry for a dumb question, but I cant figure it out, and I am not a js expert.

I have a datatable and want to have the row be like a url link, so when clicking on row it takes users to a url made from the content of the first column. Is that possible?

best, h

is much easier to use a button to do the action you want. I know is not the same behavior but much easier to do it. You can add a button/image/icon and add an onclick='....' event.

if you are doing it on HTML </p><br><br>

<td><i class="fas fa-times" onclick="window.open('https://www.url.com','_blank');"></i></td>

Also you can add here ID or diferent URL for each row.

Hope this helped you.

In datatable documentation you have "Clickable rows". That is what you are looking for.

In the part of the code you see below you can do what you want: window.open(); document.location.href... etc. But at the end is not a easy and fast as you could expect.

table.addEventListener('rowClick.mdb.datatable', (e) => { const { index } = e; const { message, title, from } = messages[index];

modalHeader.innerText = title; modalBody.innerHTML = <h6 class="mb-4">From: <strong>${from}</strong></h6> <p>${message}</p> ;

modalInstance.show(); });
