Select table row and keep highlighted using Twitter Bootstrap

Select table row and keep highlighted using Twitter Bootstrap

I am using Twitter Bootstrap table with clickable rows that are highlighted when hovered over (I can get rid of the hover feature if it makes this easier). I want the selected row to remain highlighted until another row is clicked or it is reclicked.
$( document ).ready(function() {
$(‘#myTable’).on(‘click’, ‘tbody tr’, function(event) {
// console.log(“test “);

and the table

I tried this code in the JS but didn’t work


Solution 1:

You are quite close. Targeting the .clickable-row class on your $("#myTable").on(...) event and using Bootstrap’s .active class should work for you:


<table class="table table-bordered" id="myTable">
  <tr class="clickable-row">
   <tr class="clickable-row">
    <th>Example 2</th>


$('#myTable').on('click', '.clickable-row', function(event) {

And a Bootply Example

Note: If you left .table-hover on your table, you’d have to use a different class than .active, such as .bg-info (which would be a blue hightlight)

To remove a highlight from the row (ie click again), check if the row has the class and remove it:

$('#myTable').on('click', '.clickable-row', function(event) {
  } else {

See @BravoZulu’s answer for original information.

Solution 3:

To show the painted row of a color, indicating that it is selected, you can use data-row-style = 'formatterRowUtSelect'

Inside your code, you can add this method:

formatterRowUtSelect = function (row, index) {
    if (row.fieldOfMyObject == $ ('#fieldOfMyObject'). val ())
        return {classes: 'row-selected'};
    return {};

Do not forget to create the css for the selected row:

.row-selected {
    background-color: #a9f0ff !important;
    font-weight: bold;

I hope it serves you, Greetings.

i have used this script on bootstrap-table.

$('#tb-pegawai').on('change', 'tr' , function (event) {
            if($('.selected')){ // } })
