Creating Dynamic table rows and colums in JQuery and removing it one by one.

By | September 4, 2013

Hi all…

Apart from Android, I am now going to post something in jquery.
In this post I will be showing how to create a dynamic table in jquery and adding data to it using objects and also deleting each row with a remove button in the corresponding row.

This is how it is done.

At first you have to dowload the jquery files. I will be sharing a download link at the end of this tutorial which will have my sample code with the jquery files.

So we will start

This is the HTML code that does the work.
After running this file we will get a screen like this.

Before adding the table rows.

After adding 5 rows in the table

After removing 2 rows from the table.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Auto Complete Input box</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="jquery/jquery.autocomplete.css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery/lib/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery/jquery.autocomplete.js"></script>

  var itemCount = 0;
	var objs=[];
	var temp_objs=[];
	$( "#add_button" ).click(function() {	
		var html = "";
		var obj={
			"ROW_ID" : itemCount,
			"ITEM_NAME" :  $("#item_name").val(),
			"ITEM_PRICE" : $("#item_price").val(),
			"ITEM_QUANTITY" : $("#item_quantity").val()
		// add object
		// dynamically create rows in the table
		html = "<tr id='tr"+ itemCount + "'><td>"+ obj['ITEM_NAME'] + "</td> <td>" +  obj['ITEM_PRICE'] + " </td> <td>" +  obj['ITEM_QUANTITY'] + " </td><td><input type='button'  id='" + itemCount + "' value='remove'></td> </tr>";			
		//add to the table
		// The remove button click
		$("#"+itemCount).click(function() {
			var buttonId = $(this).attr("id");
			//write the logic for removing from the array
			$("#tr"+ buttonId).remove();			
<table border='0' width='50%' align='center'  style="border-collapse:collapse " cellspacing='3' cellpadding='5'>
<th colspan="7" bgcolor="#0099FF">Billing</th>

  	<td> Item Name : </td>
	<td><input name="item_name" type="text" id="item_name" size="20"/></td>
	<td> Price : </td>
	<td><input name="item_price" type="text" id="item_price" size="20"/></td>
	<td> Quantity : </td>
	<td><input name="item_quantity" type="text" id="item_quantity" size="20"/></td>
	<td><input name="add_button" type="button" id="add_button" size="20" value="Add" /></td>


<div id="billing_items_div"> 

<table border='1' id='bill_table'  width='50%' align='center'  style='border-collapse:collapse' cellspacing='3' cellpadding='5'>
