jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxDataTable is used for reading and displaying the data from the HTML Table. This is also used to display data from various data sources like XML, JSON, Array, CSV, or TSV.

The groups property is used to set or return the data groups of the displayed jqxDataTable. By setting this property one can display the data that is grouped by a batch of column(s). It is of Array type and its default value is [].

Syntax:

Set the groups property:

$('Selector').jqxDataTable({ groups: ["Employee_Name"] });

Return the groups property:

var groups = $('Selector').jqxDataTable('groups');
