How can I create a button when using JQ UI styling.

I would like to add a button in the search bar at the top of the table to update the data which has changed in the table.

I am using JQ UI styling.

        if (pTable == ' ' || pTable == 'tblTaskWbsBudgetObsCodes') {
            $('#tblTaskWbsBudgetObsCodes').DataTable({
                  "autoWidth":false
                , "info":false
                , "JQueryUI":true
                , "ordering":false
                , "paging":false
                , "scrollY":"580px"
                , "scroller":true
                , "scrollCollapse":true
            });

            var locDt=$('#tblTaskWbsBudgetTemplate').DataTable();

            new $.fn.dataTable.Buttons( locDt, [
                {
                    text: 'TEST',
                    action: function ( e, dt, node, config ) {alert('TEST');}
                }
            ] );
            
            locDt.buttons().container()
                .prependTo( $('div.fg-toolbar:eq(0)', locDt.table().container() ) );

        }

I get an error in the colsole of
"Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property '_buttons' of undefined".

    This is with datatables 1.10.15.

    This example shows DataTables with Buttons and jQuery UI styling.

    If you are having a problem with that, please link to a page showing the issue.

    I noticed that I was missing the buttons.jqueryui.min.js so I've added that. The buttons now appear.

    I don't know if you can help on this. The buttons aren't lining up with the search as per the example.

    I'd need a link to your page showing the issue to be able to see what is going wrong with the CSS. The example I linked to above shows it correctly aligned, so I'm not sure what is going wrong on your page without being able to see it.

    I've added a line to my style sheet

    .dt-buttons {
        display: inline-block;
    }
    

    and this has cured it.

    I don't know whether out global settings in out css (shown below) are the cause of the problem.

    html    {
        box-sizing                  :border-box;
    }
    
    /* *, *:before, *:after {*/
    * {
        box-sizing                  :inherit;
    }
    
    /*
        Set a default for all divs
        Then just amend where required.
    */
    div[id^=div]    {
        margin                          :0px;
        overflow                        :hidden;
        padding                         :0px;
        vertical-align          :top;
    }
    
    

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Just like to say the use of DataTables has really improved the look/feel of our intranet. Users are impressed and it's been well worth the time/effort for me to get to understand how to use them (and lots more still to learn I :D ).
