Clarification of iTotalRecords and iTotalDisplayRecords

I'm getting some weird errors for server-side processing and I think they are related to these settings:

# iTotalRecords - Total records, after filtering (not just the records on this page, all of them)
# iTotalDisplayRecords - Total records, before filtering

I want to make sure I am interpreting them correctly.

Assuming I'm querying a view with 4780 records and DataTable is showing 10 records at a time.

With out filtering
iTotalRecords = 4780
iTotalDisplayRecords = 4780

With filtering
iTotalRecords = some number less than 4780
iTotalDisplayRecords = 4780

    It's the other way around;

    iTotalRecords = total records without any filtering/limits
    iTotalDisplayRecords = filtered result count

    So try just switching them on the reply from the server and it should hopefully work.

    Hi guys,

    vex is quite correct in what he says. I've updated the server-side processing usage page to be a bit more clear:
