First off, this is a great tool. Great support for this tool as well.
I've been looking on the forums and I can't quite seem to find what I am trying to do. I've always worked in php, but not great at JS.

I created a "Edit device" button, and when it's clicked I want to redirect to another page (manage.php) and I want to pass data to that manage.php with the contents of only the selected rows from the table. I just need the first column to be passed (Model).

Basically I want the Edit button to do this

    I've found that I can use fnClick, but I'm not sure how to compile the selected rows only and post the data to manage.php.

    [code]
    "fnClick" : function (nButton, oConfig, flash) {
    // Is there a better way to do this?
    // window.location.replace("manage.php?id="??);
    }
    [/code]

    Anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Thought I would post my code, works great for me. This passes all selected rows (sData) seperated by a comma and opens manage.php

    [code]
    "fnClick": function ( nButton, oConfig ) {
    var oTT = TableTools.fnGetInstance( 'example' );
    var sData = oTT.fnGetSelectedData();

    if (sData.length = 1) {
    window.location.href = "manage.php?search="+ sData;
    return false;
    }
    }

    [/code]

    Depending on how many rows you have selected, sData is pretty big. I ended up parsing the data that I needed in manage.php as I couldn't figure out how to just pass the first column (Model) only to manage.php

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting.

    Same problem here. Though I want to transfer data through POST method by .ajax()..

    Any guidance on this question are welcome. :-)

    So when you click on a button, you want to send an Ajax request? You would override the fnClick function for the button ( `{ sExtend: 'div', fnClick: function ( button, conf ) { ... } );` ) and put your Ajax call inside the fnClick handler.

    I just want to ask what code do we need to write in the phpfile (in this case manage.php) to get the data.

    Thanks
