The FixedHeader plug-in will freeze in place the header and/or footer in a DataTable, ensuring that title information will remain always visible.


To use FixedHeader the primary 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 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

FixedHeader is initialised using the fixedHeader option in the DataTables constructor - a simple boolean true will enable the feature. Further options can be specified using this option as an object - see the documentation for details.


$(document).ready( function () {
    $('#myTable').DataTable( {
    	fixedHeader: true
    } );
} );
