Swapping the position of columnsΒΆ

By default columns are positioned in the same order as they are declared, however when mixing auto-generated columns (via Table.Meta.model) with manually declared columns, the column sequence becomes ambiguous.

To resolve the ambiguity, columns sequence can be declared via the Table.Meta.sequence option:

class PersonTable(tables.Table):
    selection = tables.CheckBoxColumn(accessor="pk", orderable=False)

    class Meta:
        model = Person
        sequence = ('selection', 'first_name', 'last_name')

The special value '...' can be used to indicate that any omitted columns should inserted at that location. As such it can be used at most once.
