How to dynamically add/remove table row in jquery with example

In this article, we will learn about how we can add/remove table rows in jquery as well as we will remove the selected row.

Believe me, removing table rows in jquery going to be so easy simple you will understand easily how to remove/add table rows in jquery.

To achieve the add/remove table row in jquery, I have used two predefined jquery functions one is append() and the second is remove().

What is append function in jquery?

The append() method inserts specified content at the end of the selected elements.

Below is the append function example, for your understanding.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
  $("#btn1").click(function(){
    $("p").append(" <b>Appended text</b>.");
  });
  $("#btn2").click(function(){
    $("ol").append("<li>Appended item</li>");
  });
});
</script>
</head>
<body>

<p>This is a paragraph.</p>
<p>This is another paragraph.</p>

<ol>
  <li>List item 1</li>
  <li>List item 2</li>
  <li>List item 3</li>
</ol>

<button id="btn1">Append text</button>
<button id="btn2">Append list item</button>

</body>
</html>

You can simply click on the play button to run the example.

What is remove function in jquery?

The jQuery remove() method removes the selected element(s) and its child elements.

Below is the remove function example in jquery.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
  $("button").click(function(){
    $("#div1").remove();
  });
});
</script>
</head>
<body>

<div id="div1" style="height:100px;width:300px;border:1px solid black;background-color:yellow;">

This is some text in the div.
<p>This is a paragraph in the div.</p>
<p>This is another paragraph in the div.</p>

</div>
<br>

<button>Remove div element</button>

</body>
</html>

If understood the above function then it will easy to understand add/remove row from table in jquery.
