KeyTable provides Excel like cell navigation on any table. Events (focus, blur, action etc) can be assigned to individual cells, columns, rows or all cells.


To use KeyTable 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

KeyTable is initialised using the keys 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( {
    	keys: true
    } );
} );
