Table scroll - horizontal and vertical

Vue Bootstrap table scroll

For the tables with the huge amount of data you can use scroll functionality, as an alternative for the pagination.

Scrolling functionality works vertically (y axis) and horizontally (x axis).

Depending on the type of table you use (datatables or simple static table) there are 2 different solutions.

To start working with our tables see "Getting Started" tab on this page.

Note: This integration is available from version 4.5.0 (released 30.07.2018).


Static table vertical scroll

More scroll options for static tables you can find in the Table Responsive documentation.

Datatable vertical dynamic height

This example shows a vertically scrolling DataTable that makes use of the CSS3 vh unit in order to dynamically resize the viewport based on the browser window height. The vh unit is effectively a percentage of the browser window height. So the 20vh used in this example is 20% of the window height. The viewport size will update dynamically as the window is resized.

DataTables has the ability to show tables with horizontal scrolling, which is very useful for when you have a wide table, but want to constrain it to a limited horizontal display area. To enable x-scrolling simply set the props responsive and maxWidth to be whatever you want the container wrapper's width to be (this should be 100% in almost all cases with the width being constrained by the container element).



        <mdb-datatable 
          :columns="columns"
          :rows="rows"
          striped
          responsive
          maxWidth="700px"
        />

In this example you can see DataTables doing both horizontal and vertical scrolling at the same time. Note also that pagination is enabled in this example, and the scrolling accounts for this.



        <mdb-datatable 
          :columns="columns"
          :rows="rows"
          striped
          responsive
          scrollY
          maxWidth="600px"
        />

      


        <style>
          .dataTables-scrollBody {
            max-height: 200px;
          }
        </style>
