Plugin or Core? Modal div on bProcessing

Plugin or Core? Modal div on bProcessing

edited September 2011 in Feature requests Posts: 17
Hi everyone, I've been building this feature today and was wondering if you guys feel it should belong to _core_ or it should be built as a _plugin_. I've reached Allan on the subject and he's not sure so he asked me to ask you.

Here's the link for the code. https://github.com/DataTables/DataTables/pull/25

Let us know what you guys think. Would love some feedback. Thanks guys.

    Very certainly a plug-in for this kind of think I would say. There are a number of options for how to build a plug-in for this, but possibly the cleanest way is with a new feature I've just added for 1.9 - the 'processing' event. What you could do is bind to the processing event and effectively replace the built=in processing option (indeed, what could/should be done with the plug-in is to use sDom for it: http://datatables.net/blog/Creating_feature_plug-ins ). That way you would just initialise it by using the sDom parameter with the new plug-in feature letter.

    To bind events to DataTables you just use jQuery.bind - for example $('#example').bind('processing', function () {...} );
