18. Table Drag and Drop JQuery plugin

Dragging and dropping rows within a table can’t be handled by general purpose drag and drop utilities for a number of reasons, not least because you need to move the whole row, not just the cell that receives the mouse events. Re-parenting the row also requires specific code. Sadly also, effects like fadeIn and fadeOut don’t work well with table rows on all browsers, so we have to go for simpler effects. This TableDnD plugin allows the user to reorder rows within a table, for example if they represent an ordered list (tasks by priority for example). Individual rows can be marked as non-draggable and/or non-droppable (so other rows can’t be dropped onto them). Rows can have as many cells as necessary and the cells can contain form elements.

19. dragtable: Visually reorder all your table columns

Over the past several years, Stuart Langridge’s sorttable Javascript library has found widespread use. It’s easy to see why. Just add to a table tag and its column headers automatically support click to sort. Pretty slick. But sometimes sorting just isn’t enough. What if you want to focus on just one or two of the columns in a table? In a client-side application you could drag the columns you care about next to each other. Why not in a web application? Enter dragtable. Like sorttable, it teaches HTML tables a new trick through a simple class attribute.
