ColReorder adds the ability for the end user to click and drag column headers to reorder a table as they see fit, to DataTables. Key features include:

  • Very easy integration with DataTables
  • Tight integration with all other DataTables plug-ins
  • The ability to exclude the first (or more) column from being movable
  • Predefine a column order
  • Save staving integration with DataTables


To use ColReorder, first download DataTables ( ) and place the unzipped ColReorder package into a extensions directory in the DataTables package. This will allow the pages in the examples to operate correctly. To see the examples running, open the examples directory in your web-browser.

Basic usage

ColReorder is initialised using the $.fn.dataTable.ColReorder constructor. For example:

$(document).ready( function () {

    new $.fn.dataTable.ColReorder( table );
} );
