CSS Question

jquery datatable - applying value for select.className is not working as expected

I am trying to change the background color of selected row(s) in jquery datatable using my own css class but, the tick mark in the checkbox is not appearing.

If I remove

className: 'selected-row'
from the below code, then everything works normal but, without the color I want.

Fiddler: https://jsfiddle.net/8f63kmeo/12/

HTML:

<table id="CustomFilterOnTop" class="table table-bordered table-condensed" width="100%"></table>


JS

var Report4Component = (function () {
function Report4Component() {
//contorls
this.customFilterOnTopControl = "CustomFilterOnTop"; //table id
//data table object
this.customFilterOnTopGrid = null;
//variables
this.result = null;
}
Report4Component.prototype.ShowGrid = function () {
var instance = this;

//create the datatable object
instance.customFilterOnTopGrid = $('#' + instance.customFilterOnTopControl).DataTable({
columns: [
{ title: "<input name='SelectOrDeselect' value='1' id='ChkBoxSelectAllOrDeselect' type='checkbox'/>" },
{ data: "Description", title: "Desc" },
{ data: "Status", title: "Status" },
{ data: "Count", title: "Count" }
],
"paging": true,
scrollCollapse: true,
"scrollX": true,
scrollY: "300px",
deferRender: true,
scroller: true,
dom: '<"top"Bf<"clear">>rt <"bottom"<"Notes">i<"clear">>',
buttons: [
{
text: 'Load All',
action: function (e, dt, node, config) {
instance.ShowData(10000);
}
}
],
columnDefs: [{
orderable: false,
className: 'select-checkbox text-center',
targets: 0,
render: function (data, type, row) {
return '';
}
}],
select: {
style: 'multi',
selector: 'td:first-child',
className: 'selected-row'
}
});
};

Report4Component.prototype.ShowData = function (limit) {
if (limit === void 0) { limit = 100; }
var instance = this;
instance.customFilterOnTopGrid.clear(); //latest api function
instance.result = instance.GetData(limit);
instance.customFilterOnTopGrid.rows.add(instance.result.RecordList);
instance.customFilterOnTopGrid.draw();
};
Report4Component.prototype.GetData = function (limit) {
//structure of the response from controller method
var resultObj = {};
resultObj.Total = 0;
resultObj.RecordList = [];
for (var i = 1; i <= limit; i++) {
resultObj.Total += i;
var record = {};
record.Description = "This is a test description of record " + i;
record.Status = ["A", "B", "C", "D"][Math.floor(Math.random() * 4)] + 'name text ' + i;
record.Count = i;
resultObj.RecordList.push(record);
}
return resultObj;
};
return Report4Component;
}());
$(function () {
var report4Component = new Report4Component();
report4Component.ShowGrid();
report4Component.ShowData();
});
function StopPropagation(evt) {
if (evt.stopPropagation !== undefined) {
evt.stopPropagation();
}
else {
evt.cancelBubble = true;
}
}

Any suggestion / help will be greatly appreciated.

Answer

It's the class selected that sets the checkbox tick etc. and by using a different class the selected class is no longer added.

You can just add both those classes instead, and it should work

select: {
    style: 'multi',
    selector: 'td:first-child',
    className: 'selected-row selected'
}
