DataTables releases feed en-us Software release information for DataTables and its extensions Editor 1.8.1 released Our first patch release for the 1.8.x Editor series which sees a number of little tweaks, particularly in relation to the Bootstrap 3/4 integration which has been improved.

For details on the changes in 1.8, please refer to the 1.8.0 release notes.



  • Javascript
    • datetime did not respect minutesIncrement and secondsIncrement if hoursAvailable was specified.
    • If an Editor instance was configured with a template and it is destroyed, it should re-insert the template back into the document.
    • If immediately focusing on a field which uses a popup inside a modal, the position of that popup (e.g. the date / time picker) would be misaligned relative to the modal. Note that this issue is still present with Bootstrap 4.
  • PHP
    • Connection string format for SQL Server on windows (sqlsrv driver) was wrong if a port was specified
    • SQL error when inserting into two tables with a single submission
  • NodeJS
    • Sqlite doesn't support right joins so use an inner join for Mjoin
    • The demo package will now attempt to make a database query on start up (checking what tables are in the db) to allow an error message to immediately be shown on the console, rather than when a page is loaded. It is not an essential check and can safely be removed once your db configuration is working. This is purely to make the first run experience easier.
    • The Node demo package was including the Editor 1.7.4 Node packages rather than Editor 1.8
    • SQL error when inserting into multiple tables with a single submission
    • Demo package now listens on all interfaces, rather than just localhost (handy for VM development)
    • Present npm showing warnings about demo package not having a repo by marking it as private
  • .NET
    • Oracle with compound keys would report an error
    • sqlite driver doesn't return DateTime objects since Sqlite doesn't have a date format (its just strings), so make a best effort attempt to convert ISO8601 into a datetime.
    • Sqlite wasn't returning the added row id when inserting a new row
    • Updating second table in a single submit would result in an SQL error
    • Build dlls for .NET Framework 4.6 and 4.7
  • Styling
    • Bootstrap 3 and 4 - the new field processing indicator would be misaligned.
    • Bootstrap 4 integration - help text should be small by default
    • Bootstrap 4 integration - radio button labels had no spacing
    • Bootstrap 4 styling integration for the upload field type used incorrect classes for the "Choose file" and "Clear" buttons
    • Zurb Foundation - Auto focus in the Foundation modal wasn't working
  • Documentation
    • Clarify that either a return value or the callback should be used to complete a dependent() method call
