RStudio Shiny renderDataTable font size

I am trying to reduce the font size in my renderDataTable but I cannot find any example that controls font size. I have read that it is possible to control it through jquery but I cannot find any examples. Any guidance would be very helpful as I am using Shiny ioslides presentation and the font size in my data tables is simply too large.

Answer

You can put dataTableOutput("tableName") inside of div()and change the font using the style parameter. style takes CSS arguments.

For example, if have this...

dataTableOutput("tableName")

you can change it like this...

div(dataTableOutput("tableName"), style = "font-size:80%")

to make the font size 20% smaller.
