Use : $("#datatable").find("tr:eq(1)").click();
Or : $("#datatable").find("tr:contains('A1')").click(); // not good if you've more than one row with A1
Or : $("#datatable").find("tr").filter(function() { $(this).find("td:eq(2)") == "A1" }).click(); // good if you've more than one row with A1, we use the third (index 2) cell

It's (Default value is set)  working now.

There is one problem that if we click on the browser or any other text box on the html page  the div (datatable) remains open.It closes only when clicked in the table.


Since i am making mulitselect combo,if u can provide some help on the above also as how to close if user click on anywhere on the screen i.e functionality like a select box in html
Thanks
