DataTable - Table State - since v6.0.10

TableState feature enables DataTable to maintain its state across pages by setting multiViewState attribute to true. In this demo, manipulate table with pagination, sorting, filtering and selection, then visit another page and then come back to this page. DataTable state should remain as you've left it.
