I have spent an hour searching for a way to hide a datatable until drawing is complete. When about 1000 rows are displayed on my table you briefly see the underlying html table before that is replaced by the datatable. There are several techniques I could use for hiding the table but I would need to know when drawing is complete so that I could then make the table visible. Does anyone else see this brief flash of the html table and if so what can be done to solve the issue. Thx.
