Topic: datatable column width

ozgehan premium asked 4 years ago


I have a datatable with two columns. Datatable arrange width of the columns by 50-50 (equal width) but I want to make one column smaller than the other one . How can I achieve that?

P.S : I am using mdb-datatable rather than normal mdb-tbl because of pagination and search options.

Unfortunately, we don't have a property which allows controlling the exact width of each column. You can try using the autoWidth prop - it will adjust each column's width to its content. If this solution will not work for you, you can inspect the element in your dev tools and write custom CSS. Kind regards, Magdalena
