Hello,

i want to have a filter per column. The input field should be shown above the column title. If I set the first filter then the second filter should be filter the rows from the first filtered data. Is this possible and is there an example how i can get this function?

Thank you for your anserwer.

Dirk

    Hi @zerenner ,

    Do you mean something like this - http://live.datatables.net/gepatita/1/edit . This was for a different thread, but it shows filtering with a per column input element.

    Hope that helps,

    Cheers,

    Colin

    @allan: Sorry for the long response. I was three weeks not in the office. I have try again to implement the filterboxes and now it is running. Thanks for your help.

    I have now problems with the length of the fields. So i can't change the width of the filterboxes (see the screenshoot of the Table). How can i change the boxes so that i have a compact size (https://datatables.net/manual/styling/classes#Examples)?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi @zerenner,

    You can use the CSS width property to change the width of those elements.

    Cheers,

    Colin
