In the old kanck builder the code below worked perfectly. Does anyone know why this has chnaged?
 
Thanks

//Table Columns
var addTableColumnChoose = function(view) {
//See http://helpdesk.knackhq.com/support/discussions/topics/5000074312 and https://jsfiddle.net/HvA4s/
// added support for cookies to keep selected columns between renders and sessions
 
var clearFix = $('#'+ view.key +' > div.kn-records-nav.clearfix');
clearFix.append("<div class='clear'><a href='#' class='choose-columns'>Choose columns</a></div>");
var hstring = getCookie("hstring_"+view.key);
if(hstring !=''){
var headers =JSON.parse(hstring);
$.each(headers, function(i, show) {
var cssIndex = i +1;
var tags = $('#'+ view.key +' > table th:nth-child('+ cssIndex +'), #'+ view.key +' > table td:nth-child('+ cssIndex +')');
if(show)
tags.show();
else
tags.hide();
 
});
}
 
 
 
$('#' + view.key + ' .choose-columns').click(function() {
// remove other open columns set dialog on the same page
 
 
if( $('#tableChooseColumns')!=null){$('#tableChooseColumns').remove();}
var headers = $('#'+ view.key +' > table th').map(function(){
var th = $(this);
return{text: th.text(), shown: th.css('display')!='none'};
});
var hs;
h = ['<div id=tableChooseColumns><table><thead><tr><th style="text-align:center;padding:5px;"><button id=done>OK</button></th></tr></thead><tbody><tr>'];
$.each(headers, function() {
h.push('<tr><td style="padding:5px;"><input type=checkbox',
(this.shown ?' checked ':' '),
'/> ',
this.text,
'</td></tr>');
});
h.push('</tr></tbody></table></div>');
hs = h.join('');

 
$('body').append(hs);
var pos = $('#'+ view.key +' .choose-columns').position();
$('#tableChooseColumns').css({'position': 'absolute', 'z-index':'9999','left': '20px', 'top': pos.top,'padding': '5px', 'border': '1px solid #666', 'border-radius':'3px','background': '#fff'});
$('#done').click(function() {
var showHeaders = $('#tableChooseColumns input').map(function(){returnthis.checked;});
var columns =[];
$.each(showHeaders, function(i, show) {
var cssIndex = i +1;
var tags = $('#'+ view.key +' > table th:nth-child('+ cssIndex +'), #'+ view.key +' > table td:nth-child('+ cssIndex +')');
if(show)

tags.hide();
columns.push(show);
});
 
$('#tableChooseColumns').remove();
setCookie("hstring_"+view.key,JSON.stringify(columns),100);
returnfalse;
});
returnfalse;
});

Kelson,

I tried the code and it partly works and needs some conditions for it to display.

1. The table columns cannot be grouped

2. You cannot have a connect field displayed as it picks up the data rather than the heading of the column

When it does display it as below and clicking on Show/hide does nothing. My old version had cookies to save preferences and worked with groups (as I recall, could be wrong :) ). I sent you an email and happy to discuss giving you access and fee for service.

Hi Peter, 

That code appears to be pretty old. I went ahead and wrote the functionality using ES6 standards. I also refactored it to be a little bit more legible. Here is a demo: https://projects.knack.com/my-projects#show--hide-table-columns/

Here is the code. Be sure to switch out the 'View_XX' for your view.

I work in Knack building custom plugins nearly full time. Feel free to reach out if you need help
