Float column type should be used when you need to render numeric values with a decimal part. Even non-float content type from the input will be casted as a number, and render with the amount of numbers after the comma that was defined in the wpDataTables settings page.

  • Rendering rules: value is casted as a number, and rendered with 2 numbers after the comma.
  • Sorting rules: arithmetical.
  • Applicable filter types: text (will also work), number, number range, selectbox, checkbox.
  • Issues to note: none.


“Yearly revenue” column in this table is a Float type column.
