How To Use DOM Property In Datatable Using Jquery


In this article, we will learn how to used DATATABLE DOM property in jQuery.

DataTables will add a number of elements around the table and show additional information about it. The position of these elements on screen are controlled by a combination of their order in the document (DOM)

This parameter is used to control their ordering and add the additional mark-up in the DOM.

Each table control in DataTables has a single unique letter associated with it, and that letter it used in this DOM.


built-in table control elements are in DataTables :

  • l – length changing input control
  • f – filtering input
  • t – The table!
  • i – Table information summary
  • p – pagination control
  • r – processing display element


DataTables feature plug-ins can be used to add additional features.

The following extensions can be initialized through the DOM option:
