Load buttons with ajax

Load buttons with ajax

yvesmexyvesmex Posts: 7Questions: 2Answers: 0

I am using your data ajax source (array) example. I 've added to the java script after the "ajax".. line the following line: buttons: ['excel', 'pdf' ]
The buttons do not load.
Could you indicate the correct java script for this example with these buttons?
Thanks

    The ajax option is independent of the buttons option config. I suspect you forgot to add a comma between the two options. Or you haven't added dom to the config. See if this config helps:

    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#example').DataTable( {
            "ajax": '../ajax/data/arrays.txt',
             dom: 'Bfrtip',
             buttons: ['excel', 'pdf' ]
    
        } );
    } );
    

    You also need to include the additional JS and CSS for the Buttons extensions and the jszip and pdfmake code.

    Take a look at this basic buttons example:

    Kevin,
    Thanks for your help.

    I reckecked my code and nothing seems to be missing in the head and in the javascript.
    In the jacvascript I do:
    $("#test_table").dataTable({
    ajax: 'gcm_txtreport/sstractos_turnosrep.txt',
    dom: 'Bfrtip',
    buttons: ['excel', 'pdf'],
    language : { ....}
    });

    When executing the code I get this error in chrome:
    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'version' of undefined
    at buttons.flash.min.js:24
    at buttons.flash.min.js:1
    at buttons.flash.min.js:1
    the buttons flash script i am loading is:

    same as in the example simple.html

    Any ideas?

    Are you loading 'https://cdn.datatables.net/buttons/1.4.2/js/dataTables.buttons.min.js'?

    dataTables.buttons.min.js is to be loaded before the other buttons include files.

    You may want to read this page to understand the difference between the flash and html5 buttons.
