ColVis adds a button to the toolbars around DataTables which gives the end user of the table the ability to dynamically change the visibility of the columns in the table:

  • Dynamically show and hide columns in a table
  • Very easy integration with DataTables
  • Ability to exclude columns from being either hidden or shown
  • Save saving integration with DataTables


To use ColVis, first download DataTables ( ) and place the unzipped ColVis 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

ColVis is initialised using the C option that it adds to DataTables’ dom option. For example:

$(document).ready( function () {
    $('#example').dataTable( {
        "dom": 'C<"clear">lfrtip'
    } );
} );
