ddtf.js is a really simple jQuery table filtering plugin which allows the visitor to filter table columns using dropdown lists.

How to use it:

1. Add jQuery library and the jQuery ddtf.js plugin to your html page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="ddtf.js"></script>

2. Call the function and the plugin will automatically convert the header cells into select based dropdown lists.

$('table').ddTableFilter();

3. Customization options.

// A function that provides the hidden value of the cell. 
valueCallback:function() {
  return encodeURIComponent($.trim($(this).text()));
},

// A function that provides the value of the cell that is displayed in the dropdown. 
textCallback:function() {
  return $.trim($(this).text());
},

// A function to sort the options as they are added to the list.
sortOptCallback: function(a, b) {
  return a.text.toLowerCase() > b.text.toLowerCase();
},

// Callback functions
afterFilter: null,
afterBuild: null,

transition: {

  // remove rows from view.
  hide:$.fn.hide,

  // bring rows back into view. 
  show:$.fn.show,

  // An array of options to pass to the above two functions. 
  options: []
},

// Text to display for empty rows.
emptyText:'--Empty--',

// This must be true for sortOptCallback to work.
sortOpt:true,

// Debug mode

// Number of options required to show a select filter.
