The core AUI Tables API is markup-only. All it requires is some HTML on the page, the CSS will automatically be applied. There is no JavaScript to configure or set up (note extensions such as Sortable Tables do require JavaScript).

The following example shows the markup pattern required for AUI Tables.

You can use aui-table-list CSS class. When present, this CSS class will:

  • remove border lines between table rows.
  • add a :hover and :focus-within style to a row.

To make row "subtle" add aui-row-subtle CSS class to any row.

Table element usage:

Element Optional Description
table class="aui" Root element.
table class="aui aui-table-list" Optional Add aui-table-list CSS class for table-based lists.
thead Used to group table heading elements. All cells inside THEAD should be TH, not TD.
th Used for all table heading cells, either in THEAD for a top row, or as the first cell in a table with headings in the first column.
tfoot Optional Used to group table footer elements.
tbody Used to group together table content elements. Your table can include more than one TBODY, the start of each new TBODY will be emphasized with a slightly thicker border.
