How can I set default values for buttons

I want to set '<i fa fa-edit'></i>' for the edit button in the defaults section.

The setting of defaults works, but setting values for buttons doesn't work. It still gives new, edit, delete.

I can't find the solution in the documentation.

$.extend( true, $.fn.dataTable.Buttons.defaults, {
    buttons: [
        { 
            extend: 'create', 
            name: 'test01'
        },
        { extend: 'edit',
        name: 'test02'
        }
    ]
});

$.extend( true, $.fn.dataTable.defaults, {
    dom: 'Bfrti',
    responsive: true,
    processing: true,
    serverside: true,
    select: true,
    rowId: 'id',
        buttons: [
        { 
            extend: 'create', 
            name: 'testj2e'
        },
        { extend: 'edit',
        name: 'gaap'
        }
    ],
    select: {
        style: 'os',
        selector: 'td:first-child'
    },
    "width": "90%",
    "height": "100%"
}); 

    area_roles = $('#area_roles').DataTable ( {
        // dom: 'Bfrti',
        // responsive: true,
        // processing: true,
        // serverside: true,
        // select: true,
        ajax: {
            url: '/areas/'+ document.getElementById("area_roles").getAttribute("area_id") +'/area_roles.json',
            type: 'GET'
        },
        // rowId: 'id',
        columns: [ 
            {
                data: null,
                defaultContent: '',
                className: 'select-checkbox',
                orderable: false
            }, 
            { data: 'name' },
            { data: 'description' },
            { editField: 'asset_required',
              render: function(d,type,row) {
                if (row.asset_required == "1") {
                    return '<i class="fa fa-check"></i>';
                } else {
                    return '<i class="fa fa-minus"></i>';
                }
            } },
            { editField: 'product_required',
              render: function(d,type,row) {
                if (row.product_required == "1") {
                    return '<i class="fa fa-check"></i>';
                } else {
                    return '<i class="fa fa-minus"></i>';
                }
            } }
        ],
        buttons: [ {
            extend: 'create',
            editor: editor
        }, {
            extend: 'edit',
            editor: editor
        }, {
            extend: 'remove',
            editor: editor
        }],
        order: [1, 'asc'],
        select: {
            style: 'os',
            selector: 'td:first-child'
        },
        "width": "90%",
        "height": "100%"
    });

    The default isn't used in the above since you se the buttons option in your DataTables configuration object. That takes priority, which is why you see all three buttons.

    Is it possible in another way, to define the text value of a button "somewhere" as default and only extend the fields you need in the DataTables Configuration object?

    Or should i try to do this through the i18n option and set the text as a default text over there?

    The i18n options in this case are the way to do it. Normally you could use the Button defaults for that, but since the value actually comes form Editor for the Editor buttons, it needs to be set there.
