jQWidgets jqxDataTable columnsReorder Property

  • Last Updated : 04 Oct, 2021

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxDataTable is used for reading and displaying the data from the HTML Table. This is also used to display data from various data sources like XML, JSON, Array, CSV, or TSV.

The columnsReorder property is used for enabling or disabling the column reordering process of the specified jqxDataTable. This property accepts two values that are “true” and “false”. If this property accepts the “true” value, then the position of any columns can be changed by dragging and dropping.

Syntax:

For setting the columnsReorder property.

$('#dataTable').jqxDataTable({columnsReorder: true });

 

For getting the columnsReorder property.

var columnsReorder = $('#dataTable').jqxDataTable('columnsReorder');
