A lightweight jQuery CRUD data table plugin which allows the user to add/remove/edit/export tabular data in a dynamic HTML table.

How to use it:

1. Include the latest version of jQuery library and the jQuery dynamicTable plugin' script on your webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.dynamicTable.js"></script>

2. Create an empty table element on the webpage.

<table id="myTable"></table>

3. Initialize the plugin and populate the html table with your pre-defined data.

  columns: [{
          text: "Name",
          key: "name"
          text: "Age",
          key: "age"
          text: "Gender",
          key: "gender"
  data: [{
          name: 'Mr. Jeff Brown',
          age: 30,
          gender: 'M',
          name: 'Ms. Rebeca John',
          age: 24,
          gender: 'F',

4. Set the input controls.

  getControl: function (columnKey) {
      if (columnKey == "age") {
          return '<input type="number" class="form-control" />';

      if (columnKey == "gender") {
          return '<select class="form-control"><option value="M">Male</option><option value="F">Female</option></select>';

      return '<input type="text" class="form-control" />';

5. Decide whether to show the action column:

  showActionColumn: true

6. Customize the action buttons.

  buttons: {
    addButton: '<input type="button" value="Add" class="btn btn-primary" />',
    cancelButton: '<input type="button" value="Cancel" class="btn btn-primary" />',
    deleteButton: '<input type="button" value="Delete" class="btn btn-danger" />',
    editButton: '<input type="button" value="Edit" class="btn btn-primary" />',
    saveButton: '<input type="button" value="Save" class="btn btn-success" />',

7. Get the current data. This will return a data array.

var data = $("#myTable").getTableData();

Change log:


  • Input row removed in case of absence of action column
