Is it possible to change the content of a sortable header cell?
  • On my sortable columns I want to replace the column text with a html-button.

    Doing this:

    $( oSettings.aoColumns[i].nTh).text();

    I can retrieve the cell text of the respective column, which I'm using as my button text.

    However doing this:

    $( oSettings.aoColumns[i].nTh).text("some text");
    $( oSettings.aoColumns[i].nTh).html("<a href='#'>some text</a>");

    does not do anything :-(

    Is it possible at all to modify the content of a sortable header cell? Some pointers would be really helpful.

  • Found it using the fnHeaderCallback function. Great!
