How can I center a large table?

Suppose I have a large table

import plotly.graph_objects as go

fig = go.Figure(data=[go.Table(
    header=dict(values=['A Scores', 'B Scores'],
    cells=dict(values=[[i for i in range(100)], # 1st column
                       [i for i in range(100)]], # 2nd column

fig.update_layout(width=500, height=300)

How can I make it so the table is centred around a custom row (say the 50th row here) when a button is pressed?

I think you can do this by paging a datatable

Unfortunately, whilst useful, the paging functionality is not what I was looking for.

I was more looking for a a solution to keeping the entire table on display but the scroll bar initialised to a specific point.

Do you know if this functionality exists?

You could try a combination of anchor tags on each row of the table and then making the button change the URL to go to #row-id. This doesn’t guarantee that the row will be centred though, only that it will be in view.

You’ll probably need to use some client-side javascript to centre the viewport over a particular row. Something like

Thanks this seems like the right direction.

If I wanted to ask for this as a feature request (so it can easily be done from the python API) do I request the feature here or on the github page?

I’d suggest on the GitHub issue tracker My gut feeling is that this would best be part of DataTable, since it has attributes such as derived_viewport_row_ids which could be changed to a settable attribute or a new function added.
