You can make any DataColumn as numerically bu just adding a line numeric: true which will show all the number data from right side of the DataColumn.

Eg:

DataColumn(
            label: Text(
            "Percentage",
            style:
            TextStyle(fontSize: 12.0, fontWeight: FontWeight.w900),
           ),
numeric: true),
DataColumn numeric true
See the difference

As You see that Percentage Column has started displaying data from right side of DataColumn.

Show which Row is selected

You can show and default row as selected by setting selected attribute to true

DataRow(cells: [
                DataCell(Text("1")),
                DataCell(Text("Pavan")),
                DataCell(Text("99")),
                DataCell(Text("99%")),
              ], selected: true),

Here in above snippet code i have make DataRow 1 as Selected by default.
