You can modify the width of the column filter in an R shiny datatable using the columnDefs argument in the renderDT() function. Here is an example code:


ui <- fluidPage(

server <- function(input, output) {
  output$table <- renderDT({
              filter = 'top',
              options = list(
                columnDefs = list(list(targets = "_all", width = "20%"))

shinyApp(ui, server)

In this code, we set columnDefs to a list of one element which sets the width of all columns to 20%. You can modify this value to your desired width. The targets argument specifies the target columns, "_all" selects all columns, but you can also specify individual column indexes or names.
