Fixed Header Tables: Bulanadi's Plugin

In this page we want to share our findings and opinions about Jerome Bulanadi's Scrollable Fixed Header Plugin.
We invite every one to check out Jerome's blog and to make up a personal opinion.

Jerome's plugin not only provides fixed header support, but optionally allows the user to display only some selected columns, which is a great advantage when dealing with a large number of columns.

This page contains some examples of Fixed Header Tables. Detail explanations are provided here for each case:

Let us have a look how the table works:

  1. The table
    1. The table MUST have a CSS class. In this case the CSS class is defined as myTable1 in a style sheet at the top of this page (use the right mouse to display the source of this page). The most important thing is that the table header rows MUST have a background color. A background color in the headers is mandatory in order to remove their transparency, otherwise you would see rows moving under the covers (the header rows) when the table is scrolled.
    2. The table must also reference the plugin CSS class scrollableFixedHeaderTable
    3. The table must have an ID.
    All the above requirements are implemented in a statement like:
    <table class="myTable1 scrollableFixedHeaderTable" id="myTable1" ... >
  2. Links to the plugin
    The page must define six links to the plugin. The links are defined at the top of this page (use the right mouse to display the source of this page) and refer to the following objects:
    1. scrollableFixedHeaderTable.css
    2. jquery-1.4.2.min.js
    3. jquery.cookie.pack.js
    4. jquery-dimensions.min.js
    5. jquery.scrollableFixedHeaderTable.js
    6. jquery-list-attributes.js
  3. The page must define a JQuery function as follow:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function(){
      $("#tableID").scrollableFixedHeaderTable(width,height,null,null,n);
    });
    </script>

  • Column permanent selection

  • Columns selected are reset every time the page is reloaded. You implement this by specifying 'true' as the third parameter of JQuery function scrollableFixedHeaderTable, AND specifying a 'name' as the fourth parameter. This is going to be the name of a cookie used to save the selection made by the user. If you use this technique for more than a table in a page, you must specify different cookie names.
    Example:
    <script type="text/javascript>
    $(document).ready(function(){
      $("#mytable2b").scrollableFixedHeaderTable(650,100,'true','jacob',1);
    });
    </script>
