    Use search.search option to set an initial filtering condition on the table. After initialization this could be done with search() method followed by draw() method.

    Use order option to set initial order during initialization. After initialization this could be done with order() method followed by draw() method.

    Hi @gyrocode I am able to initialise value to search box but unable perform auto search

    ` $(document).ready(function() {
    var table= $("#dataTables-example").DataTable({
    responsive: true,
    "bPaginate": true,
    "bLengthChange": false,
    "pageLength": 2,
    "bFilter": true,
    "bInfo": false,
    "bAutoWidth": false,
    "ordering": false,
    "rowsGroup": [2],
    "oSearch": {"sSearch": " hg"},
    "language": {
    "search": "Find: ",

    },

        });
    

    });
    `

    could you guide me how can use search() and draw() with this.

    See this example for demonstration of using search.search option.

    @gyrocode i used your example and included it in my code something like this.
    var tables= $('#example').DataTable({
    responsive: true,
    "bPaginate": true,
    "bLengthChange": false,
    "pageLength": 2,
    "bFilter": true,
    "bInfo": false,
    "bAutoWidth": false,
    "ordering": false,
    "rowsGroup": [2],
    search: {
    search: '34'
    }
    });

    but it is not performing search for me it only initialises value. But when i copied above snippet into your shared example it is working fine.
    what could be the reason.

    Possibly you are using an old version of DataTables? Hard to say without a test case - can you link to one please.

    Hi @allan where can i get newer version of DataTables?

  • allanallan Posts: 41,043Questions: 1Answers: 5,074 Site admin

    The download page :).

    I don't know if you are using an old version - as I say, without a test case I don't know.

    Hello @allan
    there is no problem with version.
    Let me tell you what exactly i am trying to do.
    I am fetching data from SQL in php and populating all fetched data into Table with customised UI.
    To display it in table i am using Datatables.

    var tables= $('#example').DataTable({
    responsive: true,
    "bPaginate": true,
    "bLengthChange": false,
    "pageLength": 2,
    "bFilter": true,
    "bInfo": false,
    "bAutoWidth": false,
    "ordering": false,
    "rowsGroup": [2],
    search: {
    search: '34'
    }
    });
    when i do this it only initialises value 34 into search box but it does not perform search at all.
    My ultimate aim is to display pagination at bottom when page get loaded with all data by performing auto search.
    When i hit enter or space button into search box it performs search operation.

    We'd need a link to a test case showing the issue. @gyrocode showed the search.search option working as expected.
