# Row hiding

# Overview

The Hidden Rows plugin allows hiding specific rows from the table.

# Quick setup

The hiddenRows parameter accepts an object. To provide the rows to hide, specify the rows property for the object. It should be defined as an array of numbers representing the indexes of rows that need to be hidden.

See the examples section for more details.

# Additional options

The plugin provides the option to display hidden row indicators in the headers to notify the user which rows have been hidden. To enable them, set the indicators property in the plugin's configuration object to true.

To change the selection area of the copy/paste range, set the copyPasteEnabled property to true or false. By default, this property is set to true. If set to false, the hidden rows are being skipped for copy/paste actions.

To show/hide certain rows directly from the Context menu, use the following keys: hidden_rows_show and hidden_rows_hide.

# Example

    # API examples

    To access the plugin instance call:

    const plugin = hot.getPlugin('hiddenRows');

    To hide a single row, call the hideRow method of the plugin object:


    To hide multiple rows, either pass them as arguments to the hideRow method, or pass an array of indexes to the hideRows method:

    plugin.hideRow(0, 4, 6);
    // or
    plugin.hideRows([0, 4, 6]);

    To restore the hidden row(s), use the following methods:

    plugin.showRow(0, 4, 6);
    plugin.showRows([0, 4, 6]);

    To see the changes made, call hot.render(); to re-render the table.
