Topic: Datatables Columen Size prioritize

futureweb priority asked 1 month ago

Expected behavior That one column gets a bigger size than the others when size it automatically detemered.

Actual behavior It might be, if other columns have text, they get the same amount of width. Using width to set a specific width to some columns (like if you know they dont become bigger) breaks autosizing, the maxWidth Option has no effect anymore and a sidescroll appears. Especially if screen becomes smaller and buttons on the right disappear.

I could work around by setting the size of all columns just not this one that it works for 1 column. but if 3 columns should have dynamic size, a priority of one would help.

There is no such think as priority of autosize. Unfortunately if you need to have very specific sizes for every screen size you would need to write custom CSS styles.

Have you tried to use data-mdb-width attribute to limit column width?
