How to show less than 10 rows??

Hello, I try to show 5 rows per page, but i can't.
I try :
pageLength: 5
lengthMenu: [[5, 10, 20, -1], [5, 10, 20, "Todos"]]
but don´t work.

I think that I need a extra function but I don´t know. Please help me. Thanks

    Hi cris_mf,

    Thank you for the question. I just tried this on http://live.datatables.net/dutabeye/1/edit, an easy to use sandpit for trying these things out, and it seems to do what you're after

    $(document).ready( function () {
      var table = $('#example').DataTable( {
        pageLength : 5,
        lengthMenu: [[5, 10, 20, -1], [5, 10, 20, 'Todos']]
      } )
    } );
    

    However, since it looks the same as what you sent across, can you give your setup a try there and see if it works. If not, please send across your DataTable code and we'll take a look.

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Hi Colin,
    Thank you for response me. I tried your solution but it doesn't work.
    This is my code:

    var myTable = $("#tableCustomers").DataTable({
      ajax: "clientes/customerDatatable.php",
      language: spanish,
      columnDefs: [
        {
          targets: [0],
          visible: false,
          searchable: false,
          pageLength: 5,
          lengthMenu: [[5, 10, 20, -1], [5, 10, 20, "Todos"]]
        }
      ],
      columns: [
        { data: "id" },
        { data: "customer_name" },
        { data: "customer_surname1" },
        { data: "customer_surname2" },
        { data: "customer_phone" },
        {
          data: null,
          orderable: false,
          searchable: false,
          sortable: false,
          defaultContent: buttons
        }
      ]
    });

    Hi again cris_mf,

    It looks like the problem is because you've put the pageLength and lengthMenu inside the columnDefs options block. I suspect if you move it to the top then that should solve your problem.

    On a different note, your language option isn't formatted correctly - this doesn't specify the spoken language as you have it, it defines language properties such as the thousand separator. See the link above for more information.

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Thanks!!!
    And sorry, you can see that I am beginner.
    'spanish' is a variable, I think this way my code is more clean.

    var spanish ={"sProcessing": "Procesando...",
    "sLengthMenu": "Mostrar MENU registros",
    "sZeroRecords": "No se encontraron resultados",
    "sEmptyTable": "Ningún dato disponible en esta tabla",
    "sInfo": "Mostrando registros del START al END de un total de TOTAL registros",
    "sInfoEmpty": "Mostrando registros del 0 al 0 de un total de 0 registros",
    "sInfoFiltered": "(filtrado de un total de MAX registros)",
    "sInfoPostFix": "",
    "sSearch": "Buscar:",
    "sUrl": "",
    "sInfoThousands": ",",
    "sLoadingRecords": "Cargando...",
    "oPaginate": {
    "sFirst": "Primero",
    "sLast": "Último",
    "sNext": "Siguiente",
    "sPrevious": "Anterior"
    },
    "oAria": {
    "sSortAscending": ": Activar para ordenar la columna de manera ascendente",
    "sSortDescending": ": Activar para ordenar la columna de manera descendente"
    }
    }

    I hope you understand me, my english isn't that good.
    Thank you!!
    Regards
