Scrollable wpDataTablesHow to enable horizontal scrolling

Scrollable table option

wpDataTables provides functionality to show tables with horizontal scrolling, which is usually needed when you have a wide table but you want to constrain it to a limited horizontal display area. By default, there aren’t any scrollable tables. To enable horizontal scroll in a table, simply enable the “Scrollable” switch on the “Display” tab. Note that the “Limit table width” and “Scrollable” features exclude one another.

On the picture on the right you can see a wpDataTable with the “Scrollable” option enabled and the horizontal scrollbar that is shown below the table.
