jQuery Plugin To Duplicate & Resort Table Rows - Dynamicrows

Dynamicrows is a small jQuery plugin that makes it possible to clone and remove any element (e.g. form fields) in a table row with just one click.

Also provides a functionality to resort the table rows with drag and drop. Requires jQuery UI sortable widget.

More Features:

  • Allows clone values typed in the form fields.
  • Allows to fade in/out table rows on add/remove.
  • Callback functions on add/remove/move/update.

How to use it:

1. Download and load the dynamicrows.min.js after jQuery.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/js/dynamicrows.js"></script>

2. Load the jQuery UI library (sortable widget) if you need the sortable functionality .

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

3. Add clone/remove buttons and drag handle to your HTML table as follows:

<table data-dynamicrows>
      <td><input type="text" name="contacts[0][firstname]"></td>
      <td><input type="text" name="contacts[0][lastname]"></td>
      <td><input type="text" name="contacts[0][email]"></td>
        <i class="fa fa-minus" data-remove></i>
        <i class="fa fa-arrows" data-move></i>
        <i class="fa fa-plus" data-add></i>

4. Attach the function dynamicrows() to the HTML table. Done.

$(function() {

5. Customize the plugin by overriding the default configs as shown below:


  // CSS selector of table row
  row: 'tr', 

  // CSS selector of tbody
  rows: 'tbody',

  // minimum number of table rows
  minrows: 1, 

  // custom template while cloning
  copyRow : null,

  // clone form values
  copyValues: false,

  // element to hold row numbering
  increment : null,

  // prefix for form element that is ignored when the names are updated
  form_prefix: '', 

  // prevent renaming form elements
  prevent_renaming : false,

  // add/remove/sort attributes
  handle_add: '[data-add]:not(.disabled)',
  handle_remove: '[data-remove]:not(.disabled)',
  handle_move: '[data-move]:not(.disabled)', 

  // start index
  index_start: 0,

  // enable fade animation
  animation: false, // 'fade'
  animation_speed: 300

6. Callback functions.


  // parameter: $row
  beforeAdd: null,
  beforeRemove: null, 
  beforeMove: null,
  beforeFormUpdateNames: null,
  beforeAll: null,
  afterAdd: null,
