Using of Data Tables plugin becomes even more convenient with the new Freeze option. If your table has too many rows or columns – turn on Freeze option. It will keep an area of a table visible while you scroll to another area. Working with such table is just as a piece of cake.
Data Tables Generator plugin allows to freeze header, footer or specific number of columns (on the right or left side). Check the examples of these options:
Fixed Columns – the first two columns are frozen here.
In order to create such a handy table you need to:
- On the left navigation menu click “Add New Table”.
- Enter the name for gallery and choose the number of columns and rows. (Don’t worry, you can change it later).
- Go to Editor tab and fill the table with the required content.
- Go to Settings tab and turn on any of these options: “Fixed Header”, “Fixed Footer”, “Fixed Columns”.
- If you enable “Fixed Header” and/or “Fixed Footer”, then “Header” and “Footer” options must be enabled as well. They will be checked automatically, please don’t turn them off.
- Also you need to set “Fixed Table Height” in px. This value must be less than the original table height to create a vertical scroll, otherwise you will not see that the fixed header / footer exists.
- If you enable “Fixed Columns”, you can also set the number of left and right columns that should be locked in place.
Please note, that to see the work of this feature you should not use such Responsive Modes as Standard and Automatic columns hiding. Please use “Horizontal Scroll” type of responsive mode.
