I have a requirement Where I need to create a data table in visualforce using jQuery with a expansion / Drill- down button. If i click on the expansion button it should expand the row and show other information.

Here is an example... http://datatables.net/blog/Drill-down_rows. I need to implement this in visualforce.

Please help. Thanks in advance

  • Well datatables is a jQuery plugin there is no specific guide on how to implement the same in VF pages or Force.com. You can go through the documentation and can implement the same using datatables API. You can have a look at JS remoting to bring the data to VF pages. – Avidev9 Dec 20 '13 at 7:53
