AutoFill adds an Excel data fill like option to a DataTable to click and drag over multiple cells, filling in information over the selected cells and incrementing numbers as needed.


To use AutoFill the best way to obtain the software is to use the DataTables downloader. You can also include the individual files from the DataTables CDN. See the documentation for full details.

NPM and Bower

If you prefer to use a package manager such as NPM or Bower, distribution repositories are available with software built from this repository under the name datatables.net-autofill. Styling packages for Bootstrap, Foundation and other styling libraries are also available by adding a suffix to the package name.

Please see the DataTables NPM and Bower installation pages for further information. The DataTables installation manual also has details on how to use package managers with DataTables.

Basic usage

AutoFill is initialised using the autoFill option in the DataTables constructor. Further options can be specified using this option as an object - see the documentation for details. For example:

$(document).ready( function () {
    $('#example').DataTable( {
    	autoFill: true
    } );
} );
