Individual Column Searching (Text Inputs)
The searching functionality provided by DataTables is useful for quickly search through the information in the table - however the search is global, and you may wish to present controls that search on specific columns.
Individual Column Searching (Select Inputs)
This example is almost identical to text based individual column example and provides the same functionality, but in this case using select input controls.
Row Selection (Multiple Rows)
It can be useful to provide the user with the option to select rows in a DataTable. This can be done by using a click event to add / remove a class on the table rows.
