How to capture table row on button click to add css class knockout js

Tags: css,json,knockout.js

Problem :

i have table with data and data populated by knockout js foreach bind. i would like to know how to access specific table row's data when it gets updated.

if i could access table row then could add css class to that tr. my objective is to do bit color animation for a row which will be updated just clicking on button. when any data will be push to table row clicking on "Update Data" button then i want to add a class to that table row and after few minute remove that class too. hence i am new so no logic is coming to my mind to achieve this....any help would be appreciated. thanks

<button data-bind="click: AddNewData">Add New Data</button>
<button data-bind="click: UpdateDataByIds">Update Data</button>
      <table class="imagetable">
      <tbody data-bind="foreach: Stocks">
            <td data-bind="text: id"></td>
            <td data-bind="text: name"></td> 
            <td data-bind="text: price"></td> 
            <td data-bind="text: status"></td>
            <td><a href="#" data-bind="click: $parent.UpdateData">edit</a></td>
            <td><a href="#" data-bind="click: $parent.DeleteItem">delete</a></td>

table.imagetable {
    font-family: verdana,arial,sans-serif;
    border-width: 1px;
    border-color: #999999;
    border-collapse: collapse;
table.imagetable th {
    background:#b5cfd2 url('cell-blue.jpg');
    border-width: 1px;
    padding: 8px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-color: #999999;
table.imagetable td {
    background:#dcddc0 url('cell-grey.jpg');
    border-width: 1px;
    padding: 8px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-color: #999999;

var StockItem = function(_id, _name, _price, _status){
    var self = this; = ko.observable(_id); = ko.observable(_name);
    self.price = ko.observable(_price);
    self.status = ko.observable(_status);

var data= [ 
new StockItem("12345", "Acme Widget 1", "£25.99", "In Stock"), 
new StockItem("67890", "Acme Widget 2", "£28.99", "In Stock"),                                                               new StockItem("11123","Acme Widget 3","£15.99", "In Stock"), 
 new StockItem("14156", "Acme Widget 4", "£33.99", "In Stock")

var NewData = [new StockItem("99999", "HSL Limited", "£78.99", "In Stock")];

var appViewModel = function() 
    var self = this;
    self.Stocks = ko.observableArray(data);

    self.AddNewData = function(){

    self.DeleteItem = function(dataContext){
        var itemToDelete = dataContext;

    self.UpdateDataByIds = function(){
        var id1 = '11123';
        var id2 = '12345';
        self.UpdateById(id1,null,null,"Out of Stock");

    self.UpdateById = function(_id, _name, _price, _status){
        var matchedItem = ko.utils.arrayFirst(self.Stocks(),          function(item) {
            return === _id;

        if (matchedItem != null){
            if (_name != null);
            if (_price != null) matchedItem.price(_price);
            if (_status != null) matchedItem.status(_status);

    self.UpdateData = function(dataContext){
        var itemToEdit = dataContext;
        itemToEdit.status("Out of Stock");

var vm = new appViewModel();

Solution :

You can add a Mutated array to your view-model:

self.Mutated = ko.observableArray();

And upon updating / adding, add the item id to the array:


Then in your HTML, have a mutated class on each <TR> that is indeed mutated:

<tr data-bind="css: { mutated: $root.Mutated.indexOf(id()) > -1 }">

And the CSS:

table.imagetable tr.mutated td { background-color: red; }
