Stylish button examples with CSS editor

Many users wanted to know how we achieved these buttons in our Data Table examples on the Showcase page. You asked – we did! In this article, we will present you with 10 different options for creating beautiful and stylish buttons for your Data Table.

HTML Data Type

To begin with, we will create buttons using the HTML cell type or HTML column type, which the Data Table and Charts plugin fully support.

  • If the entire column will consist of buttons, then we recommend using an HTML column. To do this, go to the column settings and select the Data type HTML .
  • If you need a button in a specific location, then we recommend using the Formats for cells value option. To do this, go to the Extended Builder, select the desired cell and click on the Formats for cells value option icon. Next, select the HTML column type.

Create Button

Let’s create a button like this in the first example:

Example 1

This is the simplest version of a button with a color change when you hover over the button.

Column 1

To create a custom HTML button, click on the cell content. Go to text and enter the button’s HTML code, in our example it is:

<button class="custom-btn btn-1">Button1</button>

Styling the button in the CSS editor

Yes, we have added a button, but now let’s style it. To do this, let’s go to the CSS editor, in our example we will enter the following:

.custom-btn {
  width: 130px;
  height: 40px;
  color: #fff;
  border-radius: 5px;
  padding: 10px 25px;
  font-family: 'Lato', sans-serif;
  font-weight: 500;
  background: transparent;
  cursor: pointer;
  transition: all 0.3s ease;
  position: relative;
  display: inline-block;
   box-shadow:inset 2px 2px 2px 0px rgba(255,255,255,.5),
   7px 7px 20px 0px rgba(0,0,0,.1),
   4px 4px 5px 0px rgba(0,0,0,.1);
  outline: none;
}
.btn-1 {
  background: rgb(6,14,131);
  background: linear-gradient(0deg, rgba(6,14,131,1) 0%, rgba(12,25,180,1) 100%);
  border: none;
}
.btn-1:hover {
   background: rgb(0,3,255);
background: linear-gradient(0deg, rgba(0,3,255,1) 0%, rgba(2,126,251,1) 100%);
}

More examples:

Below we will provide the HTML and CSS codes for creating your future ones, just select the desired button and repeat all the steps in the guide written above.

Example 9

It often happens that you like a button but it does not fit you in size or geometry. Let’s say you need a button that’s larger and has more rounded edges.

Let’s consider a similar case on the example of the first button.

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5

HTML:

<button class="custom-btn btn-1">Button9</button>

CSS:

.custom-btn {
  width: 150px;

  color: #fff;
  border-radius: 30px;
  padding: 10px 25px;
  font-family: 'Lato', sans-serif;
  font-weight: 500;
  background: transparent;
  cursor: pointer;
  transition: all 0.3s ease;
  position: relative;
  display: inline-block;
   box-shadow:inset 2px 2px 2px 0px rgba(255,255,255,.5),
   7px 7px 20px 0px rgba(0,0,0,.1),
   4px 4px 5px 0px rgba(0,0,0,.1);
  outline: none;

.btn-1 {
  background: rgb(6,14,131);
  background: linear-gradient(0deg, rgba(6,14,131,1) 0%, rgba(12,25,180,1) 100%);
  border: none;
}
.btn-1:hover {
   background: rgb(0,3,255);
background: linear-gradient(0deg, rgba(0,3,255,1) 0%, rgba(2,126,251,1) 100%);
