    My buttons still aren't working even after following all of the instructions here. Any ideas what could be causing this? I've seen a lot of post on flash security but nothing on how to fix that. Please help!

    Allen,

    Great code. Just one question since I cannot seem to find it anywhere. When I go to export to pdf how do I force it to save as a .pdf? Thanks for your help on this issue.

    Thanks.

    I do this to give a default name with the .pdf extension

    [code]
    "aButtons": [
    "copy",
    {
    "sExtends": "pdf",
    "sFileName": "ppg.pdf"
    },
    "print"
    ]
    [/code]

    Allan explains here http://datatables.net/forums/discussion/4088/saving-to-xls/p1 why you can't force the .pdf in Flash.

    PROBLEM SOLVED:

    first: add your http://localhost in the flash permission at:
    http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager04.html

    second: use full path in your javascript
    example:

    "oTableTools": {
    "sSwfPath": "http://localhost/webfolder/copy_csv_xls_pdf.swf";
    }

    I'm also having problems with implementing table tools. I have a page with multiple tabs (Bootstrap), and in each tab, a DataTable (using TableTools) is shown. On the initial active tab, Tabletools functions are working fine. On all other tabs, tabletabs functions don't work.
    [code]


    // contents


    [/code]
    [code]


    // content


    [/code]
    In the uppertable, the table tools work, in the other one they don't. When I switch the active class, table tools works for the table at the bottom. When I put the active class at both tables, it works for both (but this messes up the display of the page) and when I totally remove the active class, it doesn't work anymore.

    Any ideas?

    Very likely you need to use the http://datatables.net/extras/tabletools/api#fnResizeButtons API function when the tab is made visible, since it doesn't have height / width before that point.

    Hi Allen,

    Thank you so much for the quick response! I'm now facing a different problem, maybe you have seen it before:

    I have installed the Bootstrap Integration Files, (css and JS) and all seems to work pretty fine. However, when I try to put some of the buttons in a collection, the fnClick action (and others) are not invoked anymore when clicked on the Button. The fnInit function is invoked upon creation.

    I looked over the internet to find similar problems, but couldn't find them. Also in the most basic configuration, this problem manifests itself. Whenever I remove the last part of the bootstrap integration js (starting with "if ( $.fn.DataTable.TableTools ) {" on line 115) the problem is solved, however the layout is also back to basic.

    [code]
    //Initialse DataTables, with no sorting on the 'details' column
    var oTableRuns = $('#datatable_main').dataTable( {
    "bProcessing": true,
    "bServerSide": true,
    "sAjaxSource": "api_query/table_feed",
    "sServerMethod": "POST",
    "aoColumnDefs": [
    { "bSortable": false, "aTargets": [ 0 ] },
    { "bSearchable": false, "bVisible": false, "aTargets": [ 1, 2 ] },
    ],
    "sDom": "<'row-fluid'<'span6'T><'span6'f>r>t<'row-fluid'<'span6'i><'span6'p>>",
    "oTableTools": {
    "sSwfPath": "SWF/tableTools/copy_csv_xls_pdf.swf",
    "aButtons": [
    { // TODO: these buttons don't work anymore.
    "sExtends": "collection",
    "sButtonText": "Export ",
    "aButtons": ["copy","print","csv", "xls", "pdf"],
    },
    {
    "sExtends": "text",
    "sButtonText": "Toggle Results",
    "fnClick": function toggleResults(nButton,oConfig,oFlash) {
    oTableRunsShowAll = !oTableRunsShowAll;
    oTableRuns.fnDraw(true);
    },
    },
    ],
    },
    "aaSorting": [[5, 'desc']],
    "aLengthMenu": [[10, 50, 100, 250], [10, 50, 100, 250]],
    "iDisplayLength" : 50,
    "bAutoWidth": false,
    "bPaginate": true,
    });
    [/code]

    Try to put the files on localhost or on your web server. you must have to check the path to swf file or manually set it.
    I was facing this issue on local computer. as i put it on localhost Woom!! all working fine.

    Hi allan,

    I am using data tables. In print,pdf I need to include my own logo. how is it make a possible way.

    Thanks in advance
  • allanallan Posts: 57,737Questions: 1Answers: 9,204 Site admin
    Use the sMessage option: http://datatables.net/extras/tabletools/button_options#sMessage . That will accept a plain HTML string, so you would just use a standard tag.
