largetable is a small jQuery plugin to prevent wide tables from breaking through its parent container.

The plugin adds an horizontal scrollbar to the bottom as well as a scroll shadow to the right side of the wide HTML table.

It also generates a expand button that enables the user to maximize the HTML table for better readability. To close the maximized table, click to the collapse button or press the ESC key.

How to use it:

1. Load the stylesheet largetable.css and JavaScript largetable.js in the HTML file.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="largetable.css" />
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="largetable.js"></script>

2. Call the function to the HTML table and enable the Maximize functionality.

<table>
  <tr>
    <th>Company</th>
    <th>Contact</th>
    <th>Country</th>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Alfreds Futterkiste</td>
    <td>Maria Anders</td>
    <td>Germany</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Centro comercial Moctezuma</td>
    <td>Francisco Chang</td>
    <td>Mexico</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Ernst Handel</td>
    <td>Roland Mendel</td>
    <td>Austria</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Island Trading</td>
    <td>Helen Bennett</td>
    <td>UK</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Laughing Bacchus Winecellars</td>
    <td>Yoshi Tannamuri</td>
    <td>Canada</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Magazzini Alimentari Riuniti</td>
    <td>Giovanni Rovelli</td>
    <td>Italy</td>
  </tr>
</table>
$(function(){
  $("table").largetable({
    enableMaximize: true
  })
});

3. Trigger an event when toggling the fullscreen mode.

$("table").largetable({
  enableMaximize: true
}).on("toggleMaximize", function() {
  console.log("toggleMaximize event");
})

4. Trigger an event when maximized.

$("table").largetable({
  enableMaximize: true
}).on("maximize", function () {
  console.log("maximize event");
})

5. Trigger an event when unmaximized.

$("table").largetable({
  enableMaximize: true
}).on("unmaximize", function () {
  console.log("unmaximize event");
});
