Access cell data from selected row

Access cell data from selected row

I could use a little insight on .rows('.selected').data(). I need to access cell data from a selected row but I can not even get past to accessing the TR data. My following scripts returns [object Object] in my alert, when I should see the data in the selected rows. I exhausted all my resources trying to solve this. Any help would be greatly appreciated .

var mfgTable;
$(document).ready( function () {
    mfgTable = $( "#ManufacturerTable" ).DataTable({
                           ordering:  false,
                           iDisplayLength: 20,
                               oLanguage: {sSearch: "Table Search: "},
                                    processing: true,
                                    serverSide: true,
                                    ajax: {url: "ssp_getManufacturersData.php",}
                           },
                                 columns: [
                                             { orderable: false,
                                               className: 'select-checkbox',
                                               targets:   0,
                                               data: null,
                                               defaultContent: '',
                                               width: '10px',
                                             },
                                             { data: "vendor_number"},
                                             { data: "manufacturer_name" },
                                             { data: "manufacturer_address"},
                                             { data: "manufacturer_city" },
                                             { data: "manufacturer_state" },
                                             { data: "manufacturer_zipcode" },
                                             { data: "manufacturer_type" },
                                             { data: "manufacturer_status" },
                                 ],
                              
                                 select: {
                                    style:    'os',
                                    selector: 'td:first-child'
                                 },
    });
} );
// Function called from button after row is checked
function getTableRowData( ){

      var tableData = mfgTable.rows('.selected').data();
      var tempData;
    
          $.each(tableData , function(i, val) {
       
                tempData= tableData [i];
            alert(tempData);

      });

    Answer ✓
    mfgTable.rows('.selected').data()
    

    This returns an array objects. The tempData variable will contain one row of data objects. If you change your alert to console.log you will see this. Or you could do something like this to see one value:

    alert(tempData.manufacturer_name);
