This is the continuation of PART 3

Previous Parts:

Part 1 — Zero Configuration

Part 2 — Future enable / disable (settings)

Part 3 — Multiple Tables

There are times when you might find it useful to display only a sub-set of the information that was available in the original table. For example you might want to reduce the amount of data shown on screen to make it clearer for the user (consider also using the Responsive extension for this). This is done through the columns.visible column option.

your app.component.html file like this

<table #dataTable class="display" style="width:100%">

Component file like this

import {Component, ViewChild, OnInit} from '@angular/core';
declare var $;

@Component({
selector: 'app-root',
templateUrl: './app.component.html',
styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
})
export class AppComponent implements OnInit{
@ViewChild('dataTable') table;
dataTable: any;
dtOptions: any;
constructor(){
}

ngOnInit(): void {
this.dtOptions = {"columnDefs": [{
"targets": [ 0 ],
"visible": false,
"searchable": false
},{
"targets": [ 1],
"visible": false
}]

};
this.dataTable = $(this.table.nativeElement);
this.dataTable.DataTable(this.dtOptions);
}
}

Here, dtOptions have data table settings.

columnDefs

this is used for adding more option for columns.

"targets": [ 0 ]

this code define which column we want perform our operation. Basically datatable columns starts from 0 to n.

"visible": false

this code hide your column from user visibility.

"searchable": false

this one helps for hiding the specified column from search functionality.
