Multiple Row Grouping Datatables jQuery

WebSolutionStuff | Jun-04-2022 | Categories : Laravel PHP

In this article, we will see how to row group in datatable in jquery. Datatables doesn't have row grouping built in (picking one of the many methods available would overly limit the DataTables core), it is most certainly possible to give the look and feel of row grouping.

So, let's see jquery datatable multiple row grouping, multiple row grouping datatables jquery, row grouping datatables, datatable group by row, row grouping datatable in laravel 8/9, datatable row group server side, datatables dynamic row grouping, datatables grouping, datatables rowgroup example.

The grouping indicator is added by the drawCallback function, which will parse through the rows which are displayed, and enter a grouping TR element where a new group is found. An click event handler is added for the grouping rows to allow the grouping order to be restored as well as ordering by any other column.

In the example below the 'group' is the office location, which is based on the information in the third column (which is set to hidden).
