Collection with multiple selection

Collection with multiple selection

koko82koko82 Posts: 12Questions: 2Answers: 0


I tried to found a solution to my problem but I didn't find anything in the forum or in the manual.
I never used a tabletools collection button so I'm a newbie for this topic.
In short I would like to give the possibility to select more choices at the same time.
Is it possible make this button with tabletools or I must create a new plugin?
Thanks a lot for the support and the framework.

    Do you want to have multi-select on the table? Like this?

                        tableTools: {
                            "sRowSelect": "multi",
                            "aButtons": ["select_all", "select_none"]

    no, I would like to create a collection like that

    $(document).ready( function () {
        $('#example').dataTable( {
            "sDom ": 'T<"clear ">lfrtip',
            "oTableTools ": {
                "aButtons ": [
                        "sExtends ":    "collection ",
                        "sButtonText ": "Save ",
                        "aButtons ":    [ "csv ", "xls ", "pdf " ]
        } );
    } );

    and give the possibility to choose csv AND xls.

    You mean you don't want the collection list to close automatically when an item is selected? Or do you want to be able to save multiple files from a single click?

    Either way, an alteration would be required to the TableTools code. You wouldn't need to start again, and a plug-in button would do it. Have a look at how fnClick works for those buttons in the code if you do want to try it.
