    The TH elements that DataTables generates do not have the option of introducing a col/rowspan. If you want colspan or rowspan attributes, you need to either define them in the plain HTML or construct the DOM using standard DOM methods before initialising the DataTable.

    Well, it seems to be a bit complicated then, because I defined a method to draw a datatable and I wanted ti to be generic, so I define everything in a json object defined seperately using xaction (pentaho). So can I do so without modifying the method to draw the datatable? like, putting attributes into a json obect then call it?
    thans for the answer

    No - as I say - there are no configuration options that DataTables will accept to draw a header with colspan/rowspan attributes on the cells. You need to either define them in the plain HTML or construct the DOM using standard DOM methods before initialising the DataTable.
